Get The Right Centrifuge For Your Brewery
Centrifuge World has the beer centrifuge you need to yield the most from your production. They are a valuable investment that will increase your productivity by consuming less water and energy, as well as creating less waste.
Beer Centrifuges do their thing — remove yeast and other solids (like hops) — by spinning the beer around at high speeds, causing denser solids to be spun out of the liquid through gravitational force. Moreover, brewers like centrifuges for removing yeast because the process doesn’t strip away desired hop and malt flavors like pushing beer through filter media can. Additionally, less dissolved oxygen ends up getting introduced into the beer from the process.
Recommended Brewery Centrifuges
We recommend strong disc stack separator centrifuges such as the Alfa Laval BRPX 417, Westfalia SB or even a Alfa Laval Brew 250 will do the job right!
“Centrifuging doesn’t beat up the beer as much,” – Flying Fish Founder and General Manager Gene Muller.

To Filter or Not to Filter?
We understand that not all breweries are created equal. Many brewery like to filter their beer for a different result.
However, some companies choose not to filter for the following reasons:
“diatomaceous earth is a regulated respiratory health hazard. filter media has an environmental footprint: mining, manufacturing, high heat processing, iron oxide removal, transport, and commercial pulp forests versus native ecosystems. Not to mention, the spent media needs to be disposed of and that typically means in a landfill.” – West 6th Brewing
“-Filtering sucks and we are lazy
-Most filtering methods use DE which has ramifications (arsenic, getting rid of it)
-Yeast adds to the flavor
-Filtering strips hoppy goodness” – Iron Horse Brewery
With a separator, you can achieve a similar filtration process. A separator will run the beer through a series of discs that spin at a high RPM causing solids to collect on the inside. At this point, the solids are then discharged by lifting the discs off their base and they spin out.
Centrifuging is a popular method of reducing the yeast content of beer and is often used where fining agents are not used or are used in conjunction with fining agents. Many brewers who practice accelerated cold conditioning use centrifuges, as they offer a greater degree of control over yeast count and eliminate the time needed for maturation and fining.
Beer Centrifuges – Transfer of product
In one step, Beer centrifuges can separate yeast crop as beer is transferred from the fermenter to the conditioning tanks.
Centrifuge Following Yeast Sedimentation
Secondly, beer centrifuges are used to clarify the beer after the yeast has been separated by sedimentation.
Centrifuges have a number of advantages. They can operate consistently for an indefinite period, they are self cleaning and only require a small space.
