A tankbeer installation
The FIB beer concept is an all-in concept. A tankbeer or cellar beer installation, consisting of at least two beer tanks, a cooling system, a compressor and piping all the way to the tap, is installed at a bar or restaurant. The beer tanks have customer-specific in-liners. The brewery delivers the chilled beer to the cellar beer installation in various types of beer truck, which are also built by FIB. The in-liners are filled with fresh, cold beer and the system is immediately ready to supply delicious, chilled beer.
The standard series consists of tanks of various diameters with a volume of 250, 500 or 1,000 litres. The tanks are available as a single-walled model, for placement in a refrigerated unit, or as an insulated model. The tanks can be made from stainless steel or have a copper or matte black finish and they can even be given an artificially aged look. This series now also includes a vertical 500-litre insulated tank.
Insulated tanks or a refrigerated unit
Beer is a traditional product made from only natural ingredients. There is no difference between beer freshly brewed in a brewery and beer in a tank. This is true for both single-walled tanks placed in a refrigerated unit and insulated tanks that are part of the venue’s interior design. FIB has developed special, water-cooled beer manifolds for the latter situation, in particular to guarantee the quality of the cold chain. In the last couple of decades, FIB Industries has installed thousands of these installations, both in the Netherlands and abroad.
The in-liner in the tank
Thanks to the clever design, all the beer in the installation remains at the same desired temperature. An important advantage of the system is that air, instead of carbon dioxide, is used to pump the beer from the beer tank to the tap. This saves money and avoids unsafe conditions. When the tanks are refilled, the used in-liners can be easily replaced in a user-friendly fashion.
