Brewery success for Sudmo down under

Hygienic valve specialist Sudmo has won a contract for mix proof double seat valves and process valves for an expansion at Carlton and United Breweries Yatala brewery near Brisbane, Australia, Australia. The expansion will be completed by the end of 2004 and is doubling the brewery capacity from 2.5 million hl to 5 million hl (132 million gallons) per year. The scope of supply includes around 500 D600 100mm diameter double seat valves and hundreds of other stainless steel process valves. Most of these valves are built into prefabricated valve blocks, and all pneumatically operated valves are equipped with the new Sudmo Intellitop control head, fitted with electronics for use in a DeviceNet intelligent communication circuit. The majority of the valves blocks and loose valves are being fitted in the new bright beer cellar and the yeast room at Yatala. One valve block and a significant number of loose process valves, ranging in size from 12 mm up to 150 mm, have been supplied to Briggs plc (Burton on Trent, UK), who are responsible for the construction of the new twin brew house plant. The double seat valves offer the hygienic and aseptic processor the capabilities to establish automated multiple routings with absolute confidence. The Sudmo double seat technology guarantees that all process and cleaning fluids in complex routing systems remain separated even in the event of seal failures. The D600 series have a one piece precision machined body made from a single piece of high grade forged stock 316L stainless steel.
