    How to size a brewery boiler?

  • #2
    Hi, Dheeraj. Your best bet is to talk directly with whomever is supplying your brewhouse equipment and the boiler. Many factors play into sizing a boiler, including your daily operations, number of steam jackets, desired rate of rise, the size of the system, heat loss from the piping, and so forth. As a rule of thumb, the MBAA recommends 50,000 Btuh per barrel of capacity. Your boiler manufacturer and equipment supplier should be able to appropriately size a boiler for you.

      It mainly depends on brewhouse capacity, brewhouse combination as well allowable steam working pressure. Take 10BBL system as example, if the brewhouse combination is MLT + KWT + HLT, with 2 bar working pressure, 220,000 BTU steam boiler is OK. But if the brewhouse combination is MT + LT + KWT + HLT with 1 bar working pressure, we may need to work with bigger one, 660,000BTU steam boiler would better. If you want to get more specific details for your brewery, we can discuss further.

        Your example is correct but I am not sure why you would offer high pressure boiler for small brewery.
