After the wort is obtained during the brewing process, it will enter the fermentation process.
Most of the fermentation process takes place at lower temperature conditions. Cooling is very important for beer.
Therefore, glycol piping is also a concern for brewers in brewery construction.
We have different glycol piping options.
One is PPR+PEX, see pictures below.
This type of piping is relatively inexpensive, but it goes out of shape after a while. It is suitable for small breweries.
The second type is UPVC pipe + flexible pipe. See pictures below
Its standard is Schdule 80, which is popular in the United States and Canada. This type of pipe is easy to install.
The material is much stiffer than the PPR mentioned above.
The cost of this option is higher.
The third type is stainless steel piping, which is mainly used in large breweries. As it needs to be welded on site.
The installation process is cumbersome and time consuming.
For most medium sized breweries, we recommend UPVC glycol piping. For some large breweries, stainless steel piping is essential.
