SWISS on a ROLL

sudwerklogo1sudwerkbottles1sudwerksheetfilter1

We have recently supplied equipment to SUDWERK, a progressive, American-style microbrewery in Zurich.   Less than a year old, the brewery is proving extremely popular in a market dominated by bland lagers and German imports, offering several bold styles of beer with FLAVOUR, courtesy of Gerry Farrell, Meisterbrauer, himself an 'import' from the Northern California microbrewery revolution!

Liquid Solutions provided 2-stage sheet filtration which clarifies beer for both bottle and keg. There is an automatic crown capper capable of 2000 bottles per hour, with rotary collecting table, and an automatic labeller with 'best before' date stamper.  Though output is relatively small, automation is easy to justify in Switzerland, with its high wage costs.

The bottled products are distributed throughout Switzerland; there is a mobile bar for hire, and visitors to the brewery are welcome ( 'just ring the cowbell!)

 

Organic Growth North of the Border

LIQUID SOLUTIONS have recently installed a new automatic labelling machine at Black Isle Brewery, north of Inverness.  The installation is part of a massive expansion plan following the success of their 100% organic beer brands, at home and in export markets (including England!).

The labeller is capable of up to 3,000 bottles per hour, applying a full wrap-around body label on two different bottle sizes: 500 and 330ml.  It operates on a 'belt' system to smooth labels onto a rotating bottle as it passes along the conveyer.  Similar machines are available to cope with speeds up to 5,000 per hour

There is a rotary feed table, hot foil printer applying lot mark and best before date, and auto stop/start function controlled by a photocell on the outfeed conveyer.

 

 

Liquid Solutions supplies largest Irish Brewery

website1website2

Porterhouse Brewing in Dublin do produce a fantastic dark beer: perhaps not as well known as a certain other brand, but as the claim goes, it is 'Irelands largest genuine Irish brewery'.

That's not to say there is any insular thinking at Porterhouse: aside from the four bars and hotel in Dubin, there's a bar in London and now in Shanghai, plus beers are exported to various countries including the US.

Liquid Solutions' modest contribution to this success story is the provision of a self-adhesive labeller to apply front, back, and neck labels to their 330ml bottles.  Last seen working at around 2,500 per hour on 'Celebration Stout', one of over a dozen brews available in bottle.

The labeller is capable of applying transparent or opaque labels, paper or plastic, and has a hot foil printer for date / lot mark, and automatic stop/start to match filling machine speed.

 

 
 

Summer Harvest starts in Winter

Liquid Solutions have recently supplied tanks, processing and filtration equipment to the optimistically named SUMMER HARVEST Oils, located in chilly Perthshire, Scotland.

They are growers and producers of double award-winning, high quality Rapeseed Oil (the British alternative to olive oil, and with moreSummer Harvest Oils 1 Omega 3 and Vitamin E !!), to be sold in the growing market in the UK and overseas.

The equipment will be used for collection of oil from the seed press, settling/clarification, and final filtration before bottling.  Summer Harvest previously had these operations done by an external contractor: bringing production in-house attracted grant funding and will give flexibility, enabling future expansion and diversification.
