The brew kettle is typically a large copper vessel with several steam coils in the bottom. The wort slurry is added to the kettle until the coils are covered. The wort is then boiled.
The level of the liquid wort needs to be determined to make sure the steam coils are covered. It is also important to continually monitor the level of the wort to control the temperature, minimizing boil off. The nature of the application, hot, steamy, boiling surface, make many level technologies unsuitable.
Drexelbrook installed RF Point level switches
above the steam coils to indicate coverage. An RF Continuous system
was also installed to continually monitor the level of the wort to control the cook time and minimize boil off.
