Distillery Fermentation Vessel (DFV): This is not your regular brewery fermenter
Conical Unitank DFV
Our Conical Unitank Fermenters are specifically designed for fermenting distillery mash/wash. They have optional agitators for distilleries that need to suspend the grain before transfer, and they have glycol chill jackets with temperature controllers for automatic control of fermentation temperature. The conical bottom ensures that all the grain is removed during transfer, reducing tenacious grain sticking inside the tank and requiring manual clean out.
Our standard DFV has a dish bottom instead of a conical bottom and is sufficient for no-grain washes. They also work for grain-in mashes, but may leave some residual mash solids at the bottom that are usually easy to hose out. Like the Conical Unitank DFVs, they have optional agitators, and glycol chill jackets with temperature controllers.
All ABT DFVs have a 3” drain pipe to ensure that grain solids never plug the pipe during mash transfer, vent pipe with Definox Pressure Release Valve (PRV), CIP balls and piping, and shadowless access ports to ensure complete CIP coverage.
The standard sizes are: 200L, 250L, 500L, 750L, 1000L, 1500L, 2000L, 2500L, 3000L, 4000L, 5000L, 6000L, 8000L, and 10000L. These size correspond to the DMT and 2-Vessel Mash House sizes.
