A TANKBEER installation
The TANKBEER System is an all-in concept. It consists of at least two beer tanks, a cooling system (or cold room), a compressor, and piping all the way to the tap. It is installed at a bar or restaurant. The beer tanks have special barrier in-liners: a "bag-in-tank." The brewery delivers the chilled beer to the installation in various types of beer truck, which are also built by FIB. The in-liners are filled with fresh, cold beer and the system is immediately ready to supply delicious, brewery fresh chilled beer.
The standard series consists of tanks of various diameters with a volume of 250, 500 or 1,000 liters. The tanks are available as a single-walled model, for placement in a cold room, or as a free-standing insulated model. The tanks can be made from stainless steel or have a copper or matte black finish and they can even be given an artificially aged look. This series now also includes a vertical 500-liter insulated tank.
™Insulated tanks or a refrigerated unit
Beer is a traditional product made from natural ingredients. There is no difference between beer freshly brewed in a brewery and beer in a TANKBEER Systems serving tank. This is true for both single-walled tanks placed in a cold room or insulated tanks that are part of the venue’s interior design. FIB has developed special, water-cooled beer manifolds for the latter situation, in particular to guarantee the quality of the cold chain. Over the past two decades there are thousands of tanks around the world.
The in-liner in the tank
Thanks to the innovative design, all the beer in the installation remains at the same desired temperature. An important advantage of the system is that air, instead of carbon dioxide, is used to pump the beer from the beer tank to the tap. This saves money and avoids unsafe conditions. When the tanks are refilled, the used in-liners can be easily replaced in a user-friendly fashion, ecological.
