Product Details

Wedge Wire False Bottom

Wedge wire false bottoms are highly favored in the brewing and distillery industry due to their innovative V-shaped welding wire structure. 

This design features a flat and smooth surface at the top, effectively deterring grain accumulation during the brewing process. Additionally, the V-wire shape narrows down towards the bottom, gradually widening the openings. This unique configuration facilitates easier liquid passage, thereby accelerating the flow rate.

The automatic cleaning capability, resistance to blockages, high filtration accuracy, and superior flow rates make wedge wire false bottoms the preferred choice for many brewery filter barrels. These false bottoms allow the solid grain components of the mash to serve as a natural filter, separating the wort efficiently. While the slot openings of the false bottom screen technically do not act as filters, they play a crucial role in supporting the grain, which becomes the primary filtering medium. This mechanism ensures effective filtration, holding back the smallest solids while allowing the wort to pass through.

A key aspect of wedge wire false bottoms is their high-quality, tight-tolerance construction. This precision engineering is essential to ensure that the brewing process occurs correctly and uniformly. By preventing bitterness or other compromises in the resulting product—whether it's beer, liquor, or wine—these false bottoms uphold the integrity of the final beverage.

So, what exactly is a wedge wire false bottom? 

It is a sieve screen meticulously crafted to separate wort from the solids of the mash. 

Particularly in electronic beer brewing systems, where wort extraction is automated, reliable lautering equipment is imperative. Traditionally, the lauter tun or brew kettle false bottom was made of perforated plates. 

However, modern advancements have led to the adoption of stainless steel false bottoms, specifically engineered with wedge wire. This material choice not only allows for higher flow rates but also offers anti-clogging and self-cleaning properties.

Why Choose Wedge Wire for False Bottom Screens?

Wedge wire represents a superior choice for lauter screens due to its simplicity in construction, ease of cleaning, and maintenance. Its design allows for efficient filtration while minimizing the risk of clogging, making it the preferred option for many brewing and distilling operations.

In terms of materials, stainless steel stands out as the ideal choice for lautering screens, offering several key advantages. 

--Firstly, stainless steel boasts exceptional strength, ensuring the durability and longevity of the equipment. 

--Secondly, it holds food and beverage grade approval, meeting stringent industry standards for hygiene and safety. 

--Moreover, stainless steel is easily cleaned, contributing to the maintenance of sanitary conditions essential for brewing and distilling processes. 

--Lastly, its durability ensures resistance to corrosion and wear, even in environments characterized by temperature fluctuations and chemical exposure.

The temperature sensitivity and durability requirements inherent in lautering processes necessitate the investment in stainless steel equipment. Any minor variations in temperature or chemical composition during lautering can adversely affect the quality of the wort, leading to undesirable flavors in the final product. Stainless steel provides a nonreactive surface, safeguarding the integrity of the wort and ensuring consistent taste and quality in the finished beer, liquor, or wine.

Wedge wire lauter screens offer versatility, catering to brewing and distilling operations of all scales, from nano- and microbreweries to large commercial endeavors. Their modular configuration enables easy scalability, allowing businesses to expand their operations without the need for significant equipment upgrades. This ensures that the initial investment in wedge wire lauter screens continues to yield returns as the business grows, providing a cost-effective and efficient solution for long-term success.

In the art of brewing and distilling, the importance of reliable components cannot be overstated. Our wedge wire false bottoms not only streamline the lautering process but also minimize downtime and the risk of batch spoilage, thereby safeguarding your bottom line and reputation. Invest in cutting-edge solutions and elevate your brewing or distilling operation to new heights of efficiency and excellence.
