Atlantium Hydro-Optic (HOD) UV Brewery Solutions

Why HOD UV?

HOD UV treats the water added to the brew water just before bottling. It is crucial that this water is uncontaminated by residual taste or odor, and Atlantium’s solution guarantees water safety without chemicals and without disinfection by-products.

HOD UV inactivates even highly resistant microorganisms that spoil beer production and protects brew water from contamination. The medium pressure UV lamps operate effectively in high and low water temperatures and ensure high quality water on demand for the brewing process.

HOD UV provides a non-chemical alternative to chlorine for treating source water. It easily inactivates microorganisms including chlorine-resistant pseudomonas, cryptosporidium and giardia, without carcinogenic or other regulated disinfection by-products. It inactivates viruses and heat resistant spores too.

Carbon is a breeding ground for bacteria prone to biofouling and, without heavy maintenance, subject to costly breakthroughs. A HOD UV system installed immediately after the carbon filter protects against breakthroughs and reduces contamination caused by biofouling downstream, lowering the demand for frequent and aggressive cleaning.

HOD UV enables high microbial inactivation without the use of chemicals, for use in rinse and CIP applications. The technology achieves high log reductions and is particularly effective against chlorine-resistant pseudomonas, cryptosporidium and giardia. The system operates equally effectively for cold or hot water regardless of pH and can be installed anywhere along the production line.

HOD UV Eliminates Beer-Spoiling Bacteria

The HOD UV technology was evaluated for its performance eliminating beer-spoiling bacteria. Large-scale tests were conducted by Dr.-Ing.Gerrit Blumelhuber of the Doemens Academy GmbH, Grafelfing, Bavaria, Germany. Suspensions of Escherichia coli, Saccharomyces cerevisiae carlsbergensis and Lactobacillus casei organisms were prepared and continuously dosed into a stream of sterile water entering the unit.

The results show the effectiveness of Atlantium’s system against all three of the microorganisms that threaten brewery product integrity.

What our Customers Say About Us

We are very happy with the Atlantium UV water disinfection system that we installed in our Rheinfelden plant. It is doing an excellent job of ensuring microbial integrity for all our production water, and it provides us with great tools for monitoring and reporting.”
— Christian Hoch, Leiter Production Brauereien, Feldschloesschen

 

The decision to disinfect water was prompted by fluctuations in the quality of the incoming water, for which up to 80 CFU/ml were recorded for each water sample analyzed. Although this lies within the allowable range stipulated by the regulations governing drinking water in Europe, the water was not deemed to be of acceptable quality by the brewery. Atlantium was chosen due to a very positive referral from a trusted brewery. Additionally, UV technology offers the opportunity to treat water without using chemicals. Since the HOD UV units have been in operation, no more than 2-3 CFU/ml have been found in the samples collected. This alone has convinced the brewery of the effectiveness of the system.”
