our solutions

Recognized technological innovations

Leader in its market since 1845, our Meura brand is recognized for its technological innovations and famous inventions. As an example, the mash filter, invented in 1901, is recognized worldwide under the name of Meura 2001.

This constant innovative spirit allowed our teams to develop other major technological developments such as the Mechamasher, the Aflosjet, the Meurabrew and the Meurastream.

our products

Raw material management

Our teams have developed and acquired very specific skills in handling, storage and processing solutions for grains such as malt, barley, rice, wheat, corn, starch, etc. These turnkey Raw Material Handling (RMH) solutions follow very strict safety rules in ATEX environments.

Upstream of the brewhouses, these systems include bulk feeding, storage silos, transport and conveying, cleaning and suction. The Meura ClassicMill, the CarboMill and the MechaMasher equipment are integrated for grain processing (grinding and mashing).

Grinding / Milling

Classicmill: ventilated hammermill with horizontal shaft that produces fine grist
Carbomill: hammer mill working under CO2 atmosphere which avoids oxidation of the malt grist
Hydromill: disc mill which consists of fine milling malt under water

Our Brewhouse equipment

MecaMasher: mechanical pre-mashing
Aflosjet: brewing
MEURA 2001: mash filtration 
EcoStripper: wort bolling 
ClariSaver and Whirpool: removal of cloudiness 
MeuraStream: reduction of steam consumption  

Continuous Brewhouse

The Meurabrew (Meura's continuous brewhouse) enables increased capacity while reducing utilities and waste. 

Industrial results have shown that the Meurabrew combines several outstanding performances:

  • Water consumption at least divided by two

  • Electricity consumption at least divided by two

  • Steam consumption at least halved

  • Considerable reduction of wastewater

  • No peak in utilities consumption 

  • Better productivity (one CIP per week)

  • Drastic reduction of wort oxidation

  • Ensures a constant quality of the final product

  • Very limited extract losses

Cold Block

Once the beer has left the brewhouse, begin the entire process up to bottling. These different stpes are called the Cold Block. 

Our teams design and build the Cold Block production line and handle all the functional steps from fermentation up to packaging, including injection/propagation and yeast recovery.  

 

Our Meura teams have developed specific solutions for yeast management in order to optimize the fermentation process:

Propax: the yeast propagation system

Preox: the yeast pre-oxygenation technology

Flash pasteurization, filtration, INNOVATION & R&D
