One of the focal points of this year’s Siemens offering at the biggest European trade fair for the beverage industry will be the Braumat process control system developed specifically to meet the needs of breweries. Also featured will be solutions for the manufacture of dairy products and juices based on the Simatic PCS 7 process control system.
At its booth in Hall 7, Siemens will be unveiling new functionality of its Braumat brewery process control system. The new features permit high-flexibility longterm archiving of production data in a central SQL (Structured Query Language) database. The tool integrated in the database permits the simple plant-specific evaluation of production data for quality assurance and material reconciliation purposes.
Parallel link-up to the MES (Manufacturing Execution System) level, for example to Simatic IT from Siemens, is also possible with extreme ease using the new system.
Under the heading of industrial software, Siemens will be showcasing comprehensive possibilities for process optimization. Simatic IT, for instance, will be on show in the form of a fully extended Manufacturing Execution System including recipe management, and also as a Simatic ITbased system for efficiency monitoring and the detection of weak spots in beverage filling systems. Both these two exhibits testify to the outstanding potential offered by industrial information technology. Visitors to the trade fair booth will have the chance to gain an overview of Siemens process instrumentation. Examples featured at the show will include the ultra-compact Coriolis flowmeter Sitrans FC430, which is capable of achieving a measurement accuracy of 0.1 of a percent.
Also worthy of special mention is the radar level transmitter Sitrans LR560, which measures solids such as cereals and malt using 78 gigahertz technology for ultra-precise measurement results.
Water treatment is another key area of this year’s Siemens presentation at the Brau Beviale 2012. Exhibits will include the Vantage series, a new reverse osmosis system for process water treatment. Using energy-efficient components, flexible operating modes and improved water recovery rates, this system is distinguished by its low overall operating costs.
Addressing the over-arching topic area of energy management, Siemens will be showcasing its “Energy and Environmental Services” portfolio, which includes support services for companies seeking to introduce ISO50001, as well as assistance in the identification and implementation of savings potential.
Also featured will be a methodical approach to the introduction of energy data management systems (EDMS), as well as the energy efficiency products Simatic B. Data and WinCC/PCS 7 powerrate.Siemens Beverage Industry

A University of Oklahoma astrophysicist and his Chinese collaborator have found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, the nearest quasar to Earth, using observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
The discovery of two supermassive black holes--one larger one and a second, smaller one--are evidence of a binary black hole and suggests that supermassive...
A team of European researchers have developed a model to simulate the impact of tsunamis generated by earthquakes and applied it to the Eastern Mediterranean. The results show how tsunami waves could hit and inundate coastal areas in southern Italy and Greece. The study is published today (27 August) in Ocean Science, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
Though not as frequent as in the Pacific and Indian oceans, tsunamis also occur in the Mediterranean, mainly due to earthquakes generated when the African...
In mountainous regions earthquakes often cause strong landslides, which can be exacerbated by heavy rain. However, after an initial increase, the frequency of these mass wasting events, often enormous and dangerous, declines, in fact independently of meteorological events and aftershocks.
These new findings are presented by a German-Franco-Japanese team of geoscientists in the current issue of the journal Geology, under the lead of the GFZ...
Bacteria do not cease to amaze us with their survival strategies. A research team from the University of Basel's Biozentrum has now discovered how bacteria enter a sleep mode using a so-called FIC toxin. In the current issue of “Cell Reports”, the scientists describe the mechanism of action and also explain why their discovery provides new insights into the evolution of pathogens.
For many poisons there are antidotes which neutralize their toxic effect. Toxin-antitoxin systems in bacteria work in a similar manner: As long as a cell...
It comes when called, bringing care utensils with it and recording how they are used: Fraunhofer IPA is developing an intelligent care cart that provides care staff with physical and informational support in their day-to-day work. The scientists at Fraunhofer IPA have now completed a first prototype. In doing so, they are continuing in their efforts to improve working conditions in the care sector and are developing solutions designed to address the challenges of demographic change.
Technical assistance systems can improve the difficult working conditions in residential nursing homes and hospitals by helping the staff in their work and...
