Compact yeast monitors

The COMPACT YEAST MONITORS from ABER Instruments’ brewing equipment range are designed to be used in real time
with live yeast concentrations up to 70% viable spun solids.

The COMPACT YEAST MONITOR is housed in a robust IP65 stainless steel housing, this can be fitted to housing such as the Tuchenhagen Varivent. The COMPACT ADAPT YEAST MONITOR is used on fermenters and propagators and is typically used with our 25mm diameter probe type. The COMPACT PERFECTPITCH is a self-contained mobile skid for dosing the right amount of LIVE yeast.

Compact Perfect Pitch

From ABER Instruments’ range of yeast pitching equipment, the COMPACT PERFECTPITCH is a portable skid that incorporates a COMPACT ADAPT yeast monitor, a flow meter, pipework and mini-PLC.  So if the brewer needs a self-contained module or the flexibility to connect the yeast monitor to various yeast storage vessles and fermenters, the COMPACT PERFECTPITCH provides the ideal solution at an affordable price.

Our recent case study highlights the benefits that the Meantime Brewery in London experienced during their trial of the COMPACT PERFECTPITCH.
