Operation of Packaging Lines

  • Packaging lines are a major water user in the brewery
    • perhaps 25% of total
    • metering definitely required
  • Confirm equipment uses water at its recommended consumption
    • if higher savings are possible
  • Avoid short run times as much as is possible. Such runs increase proportion of cleaning time and water usage.
  • On rinse tanks ensure overflow pipes are visible
  • For kegs and casks meter in the beer rather than brim fill
  • reduced beer losses and reliance on fob return
  • more security on legal issues:
    • Weights and Measures Acts
    • alcohol duties
