PROPYLENE GLYCOL BEVERAGE COOLING


Not all Propylene Glycol is the same! By using Bracton Long Life Propylene Glycol at the correct ratio, your venue is taking preventative maintenance action to protect against:

  • Corrosion within glycol storage tanks
  • Microbial growth reducing or blocking flow rates (Jelly formation)
  • Unscheduled down time – i.e. system freezing
  • Wear on equipment through increased loads on glycol pumps
  • Increased electricity consumption

BRACTON GLYCOL PRESERVATIVE - FOOD APPLICATIONS

PROTECTS HEAT TRANSFER SYSTEMS FROM EXCESSIVE WEAR

Bracton Propylene Glycol Preservative Inhibitor

Propylene Glycol is an excellent heat transfer liquid with low toxicity, suitable for food grade applications such as beverage cooling and food processing. One drawback is that Propylene Glycol has an average shelf life of twelve months from date of manufacture, when stored in accordance with PG manufacturers guidelines (below 40C and away from UV light sources). Given that Propylene Glycol is for the most part imported into Australia, the actual shelf life is closer to 8 – 10 months by the time glycol enters into operation. As Propylene Glycol is exposed to operational environments including elevated temperatures and oxidisation, Propylene Glycol fluid reacts becoming acidic, in turn increasing the wear on equipment and higher maintenance costs.

Fortunately, The chemists at Bracton have developed an easy to use food grade additive, designed to preserve the shelf life of USP grade propylene glycol by up to five times in normal conditions. Bracton Propylene Glycol Preservative is made with food grade FDA approved materials and has been employed to protect food processing systems of some the worlds largest multi-national food manufacturers, breweries, hotels and industrial manufacturers. Bracton Propylene Glycol Preservative serves as the front line defense, protecting against systems against acidity, corrosion while inhibiting mould and fungus growth.

By choosing to use Bracton Propylene Glycol Preservative in heat transfer applications, your company will save in replacement and maintenance costs.

Ideal for use on:
• Commercial & Domestic Draught Beer Systems
• Food Processing systems
• Dairy, Seafood and Wine production systems
• Any commercial or industrial system that requires glycol use.

Characteristics:
• Prevents corrosion
• Prevents bacterial build up
• Prevents circulation blockage
• Extends the life of Propylene Glycol
• Increases efficiency in systems

Use: Bracton Propylene Glycol Preservative 10Lt treats 200Kg of pure propylene glycol (UNDILUTED).

GLYCOL CONCENTRATION REFRACTOMETER

Bracton Glycol Refractometer

Glycol / water concentration should be tested on a weekly basis to prevent line freezing. This can be done quickly with the Bracton Refractometer and dilution chart. It is important to get the propylene glycol / water concentration correct, too low of a glycol concentration will increase the risk of freezing the system, too high of a glycol concentration will cause additional load placed on the glycol pumping system increasing electricity and maintenance costs.

The Bracton Glycol Refractometer is:

  • Easy to use
  • High quality, accurate testing result
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC)‚ (accurate analysis in all temperatures)

BRACTON INTERNAL FONT CLEANER

In the event of a blockage in the cooling system lines, beverage heat exchanger or fonts, the system can be flushed with Bracton Font Cleaner. Font Cleaner can be re-circulated through the system will break down the jelly which was formed through a reaction between the acidity of the previous glycol solution and metals in the system. Consult your beer technician or Bracton direct for more information.

COOLROOM & FITTINGS – CLEANING & HYGIENE


A safe, clean and tidy cool room greatly reduces the risk of off-flavours in beer caused by infections or taints. Cool rooms should not be used as a refrigerator for food storage! Cool rooms floors, walls and equipment should be kept clean using the correct non flavour tainting product or by using a reputable trained coolroom maintenance company such as Jaymak.
