FLENDER Gear Units for Lauter Tuns

Description

Lauter tuns are used in breweries to separate mash from wort. A raking machine inside the tun rakes grist and malt or removes the spent grains, depending on the direction of rotation.

The height of the raking machine can be varied either electrically or hydraulically according to the process. FLENDER offers a gear unit solution with integrated height adjusting mechanism for this purpose. The height can even be altered under load.
