Poeth receives order for turnkey brewery project in Nigeria
Poeth Solids Processing has been awarded an order for the treatment, storage and handling of malt and admixtures for one of the largest beer breweries in the world. This project will soon be realized in Nigeria.
Poeth has been in the brewing industry since its inception in 1921.
Willem Poeth (founder) supplied his first mills for local small breweries
The project also includes two Poeth P15 Hammermills, the largest of which is equipped with a 315 kW drive. Completely Atex proof. Poeth has its own Hammermill test installation. Pre-testing of raw materials can be very interesting in many cases, e.g. the mill and/or filter should not be made unnecessarily large. This results in lower costs for, for example, a frequency converter / cabling, but also energy consumption.
With the Z-Conveyor, dry substances such as malt, barley and rice can be transported horizontally, diagonally and vertically to great heights. The Z-Conveyor gently transports raw materials. This makes the transport system particularly suitable for malt and barley in this brewery. The required installation height is very compact compared to traditional transport systems.
Bucket elevators are basically not dust explosion safe. By making extra provisions, the bucket elevators can be made suitable for Atex applications, but this usually makes it very expensive.
This is the reason why Poeth Solids Processing developed the ATEX safe Z-Conveyor several years ago. The Z-Conveyor functions at speeds well below 1 m/s, so there is no risk of explosion.
This unique feature of the Z-Conveyor prevented high investments in the Lindemans brewery in decoupling, explosion suppression, relief, misalignment protection, automation and maintenance for ATEX protection.
The externally appointed institution for the ATEX certification assessed the explosion safety.
