The B500pro has an 150 litre (40 gal) boil capacity and about 35kg (77 lb) malt capacity. It is equipped with a powerful pump, which can be controlled from the touch-screen. The wort is circulated up through the centre pipe and the pump is fitted using Tri-Clamps making it very easy to remove, even when the tank is full.
The malt pipe has latches that folds out when you hoist it to secure it for draining. To lift the malt pipe on this system you require a lifting system. This is being developed with a custom brewing table and will be ready early 2020
Sparging is done without tubes or pipes outside the tank. A sparge tube installed on the outside of the centre pipe follows the malt pipe when lifted also lifting the wort spreading device. This makes it very easy to sparge from a separate tank without making a mess.
After brewing with the B150pro, cleaning is fast and easy. The centre pipe is removed easily, and you can easily clean the unit, and all the trub will be drained directly to a bucket or the drains. Use the included circulation device as a CIP solution to save time and cleaning chemicals.
The system has two digital temperature sensors – one in the bottom of the tank and one before the pump. The maximum static offset is ±0,5°C. The sensors can be individually calibrated for maximum accuracy. They have an accuracy of 0.1°C. It’s also possible to connect a third sensor (accessory) to monitor the temperature of the wort returning from the counter flow cooler, so you can pump directly to the fermenter when the temperature is right.
All ports are 34mm Tri-Clamp fittings for maximum flexibility without leaks. As standard the system is shipped with one 3-way valve. All silicone tubes are 16x25mm food grade silicone.
The control system is custom developed and features high quality electronics. The software is constantly being improved with new features. It is updated via WiFi.
