As the mash is circulated through the system, the malt particles are exposed to intense shockwaves that drive the water and enzymes deep into the grain. Extensive research has shown an increase in pure alcohol yield of 1% to 2%.
With more than 50 years of combined experience in HTST (Flash) and ESL pasteurization the ApoWave Flash Pasteurization System incorporates the latest technology and the highest sanitary standards on a new pasteurization system for beer.
ApoWave Flash Pasteurization systems have adjustable pasteurization temperature and time to cover a wide array of beers and pasteurization requirements: From a gentle heat treatment to reduce micro load to complete pasteurization. Standard features include:
Tests on commercial breweries have shown that by circulating beer and aroma hops through the system, a 50% reduction in aroma hops can be achieved while maintaining the aroma profile of the beer.
For decades, the low yield levels from extraction and isomerization of alpha acids from hops, has remained a mystery. Extensive research by Apotek Solutions in alpha acid utilization has lead to a higher recovery of alpha acids. this is accomplished by a combination newly developed alpha acid calculation formula and by preventing the encapsulation of AA particles in wort using the Apowave©
Cavitation is the sudden formation and collapse of vapor bubbles (or cavities) in a liquid due to pressure fluctuations. As the bubble collapses it sends intense pressure fluctuations, or shockwaves, to the surrounding liquid.
The Apowave© System incorporates the Shockwave Power Reactor (SPR) from Hydro Dynamics and harnesses this technology to apply energy to beer or distilled spirits for extraction and, mixing:
