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

Today, plants and microorganisms are heavily used for the production of medicinal products. The production of biopharmaceuticals in plants, also referred to as “Molecular Pharming”, represents a continuously growing field of plant biotechnology. Preferred host organisms include yeast and crop plants, such as maize and potato – plants with high demands. With the help of a special algal strain, the research team of Prof. Ralph Bock at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam strives to develop a more efficient and resource-saving system for the production of medicines and vaccines. They tested its practicality by synthesizing a component of a potential AIDS vaccine.
The use of plants and microorganisms to produce pharmaceuticals is nothing new. In 1982, bacteria were genetically modified to produce human insulin, a drug...
Atomic clock experts from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) are the first research group in the world to have built an optical single-ion clock which attains an accuracy which had only been predicted theoretically so far. Their optical ytterbium clock achieved a relative systematic measurement uncertainty of 3 E-18. The results have been published in the current issue of the scientific journal "Physical Review Letters".

Physicists from Saarland University and the ESPCI in Paris have shown how liquids on solid surfaces can be made to slide over the surface a bit like a bobsleigh on ice. The key is to apply a coating at the boundary between the liquid and the surface that induces the liquid to slip. This results in an increase in the average flow velocity of the liquid and its throughput. This was demonstrated by studying the behaviour of droplets on surfaces with different coatings as they evolved into the equilibrium state. The results could prove useful in optimizing industrial processes, such as the extrusion of plastics.
The study has been published in the respected academic journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America).
