Before you can start using the Bag-In-Tank system, you will need the following:
Tanks for storage/lagering
Tank, including manhole and safety valve:
Either a horizontal or vertical tank can be used, depending on your personal
preferences. A number of different sizes are also available.
Depending on the tank selected, you can opt between stationary and mobile
(transport frame) versions. The base of a transport frame has recesses for a
pallet jack. Heavy-duty transport wheels can be fitted as an option.
A compressor is needed to pressurise the inliner (the airtight plastic bag
containing the beer). Duotank has a range of low-noise, 100% stainless steel
heavy-duty compressors. These compressors were specifically designed for
prolonged operation. The standard DAC 25 compressor is suitable for up to 4x
Depending on the type of tank, a suitable inliner is needed. This is a
disposable article. After each filling / brew, the inliner is replaced. Inliners are
supplied individually in a protective package, and meet all relevant
requirements for direct contact with food.
To connect the inliner with the hose and / or tap, a piercing unit is needed.
This is available with a range of connecting threads (Standard NW25).
The piercing unit must be cleaned every time it is used for a new refill. The
best way to do this is with a CIP unit and/or steam. We recommend, therefore,
that you have a spare piercing unit (for changing the valves).
Specific piercing units are available, depending on the type of beer. If the beer
contains a lot of sediment (unfiltered) and you do not want it to be served with
the beer, use a piercing unit with a longer shaft. The sediment sinks to the
bottom of the tank, keeping it below the longer shaft of the piercing unit and
out of the beer line. When the tank is empty and the piercing unit removed,
the sediment drains out.
