Alfa Laval beer centrifuges for craft breweries

Craft brewing is all about bringing unique flavour to your customers. Whether you make crystal clear lager or hazy IPA, Alfa Laval’s craft centrifuges protect the character and quality of your beer, while boosting efficiency in your production. Removing core solids without filtering or oxygen uptake. And with an option to carbonate your beer during centrifugation. It’s the easy way to upgrade your craft, while keeping the passion.

Procarb perfect match


More from every batch, faster

With a beer centrifuge, you get up to 10% more beer from every batch, compared to traditional sedimentation. And you move faster from fermentation to finished product, boosting your capacity without having to invest in new tanks.

Adding the integrated ProCarb inline carbonation option cuts production times even more, while securing high and consistent quality. Making sure every pint is a delight to your customers

An investment that pays off

Increased yield and accelerated tank turnover enable you to recover your investment in as little as a year, depending on the setup and size of your brewery. Making the centrifuge a truly smart investment.
The payback graph shows how one brewery recovered their investment in just 9 months after installing a Brew 80 centrifuge:

  • Yearly production: 3500 hl
  • Suggested flow rate: 10 – 50 hl/h
  • Beer sales: € 3 per litre
  • Payback period: 0,75 years



Carbonate with superior speed and quality

High-quality carbonation can be time consuming, adding stress to your production schedule. By integrating carbonation with clarification, we’re introducing a groundbreaking solution. Now, you can boost efficiency even more while staying true to the craft.

When we saw the Alfa Laval centrifuge with ProCarb, we realized that we could recover all our costs with the time we saved. Now we can go straight from crash cooling to packaging. I can do in 3 hours what used to take 3 days.”
