Meura 2001 Senior
Meura has always developed innovative technologies and equipment offering competitive advantages to brewers.
For more than 100 years, Meura has been developing mash filtration technologies. In order to fulfil its customers' requirements, Meura has developed different kinds of mash filter.
Meura has a wealth of experience in mash filtration with more than 450 Meura 2001 installed all over the world.
The Meura 2001 Hybrid mash filter is a thin bed mash filter equipped with membranes. It's the latest design of our mash filter which provides exceptional simultaneous performances.
After almost 5 years of intensive research, the new design of the Meura 2001, the so called Meura 2001 Hybrid mash filter, was developed and provides these unique advantages:
- high productivity (>14 brews per day)
- high extract yield (min. equal to laboratory yield)
- very bright wort (Imhoff <5ml/l)
- high gravity wort (>17°P cold wort, without weak wort recovery)
In addition, less than 2.2 litres of sparging water per kilo of malt is needed, which means short sparging cycles and thus a wort quality impovement. A single filter can take throws of up to 16 tons, thanks to a more homogeneous filling of the filter chambers.
The major improvement with the Meura 2001 Hybrid lies in a conceptual change in its filter plate design. Previous internal research showed an irregularity in the sparging efficiency of the filter bed cakes. The reason was a different filling pattern from one cake to another.
A solution was found by keeping only the filter bed in the direction of the best sparging efficiency. The Meura 2001 Hybrid was born, which has filter plates of one single identical design. The plate is now called the “hybrid” plate and no longer a “filter plate” or a membrane plate”. Each hybrid plate is equipped with one cloth AND one membrane (compared to the Meura 2001 which had plates with two membranes OR two cloths).
