Reducing Total Package Oxygen – The Basics of a Foaming Device in Beer Bottling Using Heated, Ultra-Pure Water
Many experts agree that the taste and quality of beer is best when it is first filled into a container. However, the presence of oxygen in the liquid results in oxidation, a major contributor to degrading beer flavor, quality, and color. In this article published in the April 2016 edition of Brewing and Beverage Industry International magazine, Heateflex describes the implementation in a large-production beer bottling operation of a foaming device using heated, ultra-pure water. The article summarizes the case study findings that a properly designed ultra-pure water heater will improve operations and contribute to reducing Total Package Oxygen (TPO) in the packaged beer.
