Key benefits

Hygienic and efficient

Automatic cleaning (CIP) and the stainless steel design ensure a top hygiene in your process. The Bühler washing screw caters for the highest malt quality.

Efficient cleaning of the steeped grain

Microbiological and chemical contamination of the steeped grain is reduced, thanks to the effective countercurrent flow cleaning principle. The integrated floating barley skimming provides an efficient and economic cleaning of the grain.

Compared to conventional cylindroconical steeps, you can achieve freshwater savings of up to 50% and wastewater savings of up to 35% with the washing screw. A clear benefit for your plant, both economically and ecologically.
