Micro-brewery improves energy efficiency with gas burner

Installing a Lanemark process gas burner system has brought energy efficiency and process control to a Nottinghamshire micro-brewery.

Pheasantry Brewery director Mark Easterbrook says: “The burner has demonstrated a low-gas consumption level together with fast heat-up rates switching on when the liquid level in the copper reaches a minimum level and is fully heated by the time it has reached its full 1,028mm depth.”

Adrian Langford, general manager at Lanemark, says: “We installed a 100kW rated TX 30 modulating gas and air burner system, which fires through the wall of the 1,425mm diameter copper into a submerged tubular heat exchanger, which is arranged in three circuits within the vessel. An exhaust fan pulls the products of combustion through the tube to ensure optimum distribution of heat,”​ he says.

During the initial warm up phase from 60°C to just under 100°C, the system is controlled via a digital temperature controller. Manual control is selected to set exactly the required propane gas and combustion air inputs.
