High oxygen levels in beer will cause organoleptic problems in the final product, so breweries aim to achieve oxygen-free water. Since Paulaner Brewery installed a modular, water deaeration system that uses hydrophobic hollow fiber membranes to remove dissolved gasses, the unit has operated maintenance-free. This tech brief outlines the unit’s design, operation, and the resulting reduction of energy consumption costs.
