Optimize your processes

The domain knowledge of ABB's own brewmaster is the foundation of this powerful technological package. The new solution is based on the ABB Ability™ System 800xA® control system. The technological package is specifically designed for breweries providing a library of ready-made and tested templates and objects that can be easily adapted for their particular needs by using a variety of parameters. 

Enriched with Batch functionality following the S88 standard and Advanced Process Control (APC), which is also proven in many other industries, it brings a high level of automation and intelligence for the process. Rich diagnostics functions, comprehensive CIP (Cleaning-in-Place) support, a recipe editor and tank farm operations are only a few to mention. In addition, with a digital twin the production process can be simulated and even optimized before it is going to production. This also helps to reduce the time to market. 

With easy to handle, intuitive operations, ABB Ability BeerMaker can empower operators manage their preferred operating procedures, in a control room or on mobile devices for breweries or malting plants.

The BeerMaker intelligent process control solution supports not only safety but also quality improvements while boosting productivity, increasing process reliability and raise operational efficiency. Making performance and energy improvements today help you reach your sustainability targets for a better future tomorrow.
