Harnessing the Power of Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is integral to all the process industries that Briggs of Burton work across. It features many important properties mechanically, for production processes, and also its longevity. As part of Briggs of Burton’s evolution, the larger stainless steel process tanks are now sourced across our Group, and we focus on adding value with higher complexity systems, often requiring a human hand to complete the assembly and fabrication.

Harnessing the Power of Stainless Steel

Innovative Systems Built on Unyielding Hardness and Strength

Stainless steel is a highly valuable and widely used material in vessel and tank construction for the production of beer and distilled spirits. Its unique properties make it an ideal choice for these applications.

Corrosion Resistance

One of the most significant advantages of stainless steel is its exceptional resistance to corrosion. The brewing and distillation processes involve acidic and corrosive substances, such as various acids, alcohol, and cleaning agents. Stainless steel’s ability to resist corrosion ensures that the vessels and tanks maintain their integrity, preventing contamination of the product and prolonging the equipment’s lifespan.

Hygienic Properties

Stainless steel has a smooth and non-porous surface, which makes it easy to clean and maintain the highest level of hygiene. The material is also resistant to bacterial growth, ensuring that the beer and distilled spirits produced remain free from contaminants and maintain their quality.

Strength and Durability

Stainless steel is known for its high strength and durability. The vessels and tanks used in the brewing and distillation processes need to withstand high pressures and heavy loads. Stainless steel’s strength ensures that the equipment remains intact and can endure the demands of the production process over time.

Temperature Resistance

Brewing and distillation involve varying temperatures, and stainless steel can withstand a wide range of temperature fluctuations without compromising its structural integrity. This property allows the vessels and tanks to endure the heating and cooling processes involved in brewing and distillation.

Aesthetic Appeal

Stainless steel gives a professional and aesthetically pleasing look to the vessels and tanks. This is particularly important in breweries and distilleries that may have tours or public areas where customers can view the production process. The clean and shiny appearance of stainless steel contributes to a positive brand image.

Ease of Fabrication

Stainless steel is relatively easy to work with during the fabrication process. It can be welded, formed, and shaped to meet the specific design requirements of vessels and tanks, making it a versatile material for various production setups.

Regulatory Compliance

The use of stainless steel in vessel and tank construction aligns with regulatory standards for food and beverage production. Stainless steel is approved for use in contact with consumable liquids, making it a suitable material to meet health and safety regulations.

Stainless steel’s importance and value in vessel and tank construction for beer and distilled spirits production lie in its corrosion resistance, hygienic properties, strength, durability, temperature resistance, aesthetic appeal, ease of fabrication, and regulatory compliance. This material ensures the production of high-quality, safe, and consistent products while providing longevity and reliability to the equipment used in these industries.
