Oxygen transfer and distribution are the most important factors in submerse vinegar fermentation. An intensive mixing of air, alcohol, water and nutrients as well as the homogenous distribution of this mixture within the entire working volume of the fermenter are the basic principles for modern and high performing vinegar production. Cetotec aerators offer you all these factors finely tuned to perfection.
The oxygen supply and distribution is based on a carefully designed aerator architecture consisting of a hydrodynamically optimized rotor and stator couple. The goal is to introduce the highest quantity possible of small air bubbles into the fermenter and therewith bring the aeration as well as the homogenous distribution of the mixture to perfection. This highly efficient supply to the vinegar bacteria enables the achievement of an optimal yield to energy consumption ratio.
Cetotec delivers aerators for all vinegar fermenter sizes up to a motor power of 132kW.
This has to be checked case by case and depends on the tank geometry as well as the cooling capacity. We are happy to offer you our support.
Approx. every 6-10 years the motor should be overhauled and the mechanical seal replaced.
