Rotamec rewind service helps a leading brewery to keep its fizz

17 December 2019

Ensuring redundancy in large scale manufacturing operations is key to any plant manager’s peace of mind. In the beverage industry, where processing speeds are high and profit margins per unit low, securing redundancy is especially important towards promoting uptime. One world famous brewery has turned to Rotamec, an electro-mechanical service provider to industry, who secured its production line by carrying out a specialist motor rewind and refurbishment within seven weeks.

CO2 is what makes drinks fizzy and is all important in providing a desirable ‘head’ on a glass of beer. Compressors are utilised in the production process to carbonate beverages with this gas, performing a vital role in the plant. Without a running back up compressor to step in seamlessly during issues with the primary compressor, production uptime is at greater risk. 

So, when a leading brewery found that the 500kW motor powering its on-site compressor back up had failed, the business required an urgent motor repair and refurbishment to minimise the chances of downtime. With reference to pre-existing maintenance schedules, while balancing adequate time for a quality repair with ensuring manufacturing security, a timeframe of seven weeks was settled on by the brewery.
