Fermenters for industrial vinegar production

Cetotec delivers turn-key industrial scale fermentation plants with production capacities of up to 110m³. The fermenter is the core component of every vinegar production. It is delivered in high quality stainless steel and equipped with a custom-tailored cooling coil.

Description:

In modern vinegar production facilities, nowadays the submerse fermentation is the pre-dominant process. High performance aeration systems guarantee a homogenous and uninterrupted supply of oxygen to the fermenter, therefore optimally supporting the growth of the microroganisms. In Cetotec fermenters you can achieve up to 15% acidity when applying the semi-batch process as well as more than 20% acidity when applying the fed-batch process.

Function:

A complete fermentation plant in vinegar production technology generally consists of the following main components:

  • High quality stainless steel tank with cooling coil
  • Aeration system
  • Foam system
  • SIEMENS PLC – process control
  • Acetoline – system for the on-line alcohol and acidity measurement / Alcocontrol – system for the on-line alcohol measurement
  • Stainless steel pumps
  • Sensors (filling level, temperature, alcohol volume)

Advantages:

  • Technological leading engineering for the optimal construction of your vinegar fermenter
  • High performance aerator design for vinegar production
  • Easy to handle foam system with very low energy consumption
  • Innovative alcohol and acidity measurement systems
  • Reliable Siemens PLC control with well-proven software
