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

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
