Potts Brewery


For the Oelde-based specialty brewery Pott’s, Hagelschuer, together with the engineering office Hebmüller, took over the planning and implementation of a steam generator. This can be used in combination with a micro gas turbine as a CHP plant.

The task

A Capstone microturbine was used to generate electricity and thermal power. The exhaust gas heat is used directly by feeding the 300 °C hot exhaust air with 17.5% residual oxygen content to a steam boiler (2 t saturated steam/h at 4 bar overpressure) as primary combustion air. The steam thus generated is used for the brewhouse and for heating the hot water network.

The attachment

The new CHP plant at Pott’s is characterized by significantly lower fuel consumption compared to conventional plants. Thanks to the extremely compact and space-saving modular design, the oldhistoric steam engine could be preserved as a technical monument in its original location.

Project partner mediates Jule before completion

Our rental boiler plant Jule (3 t/h, 2.1 MW, 16 bar) had not yet been completed when we received the first inquiry from our project partner CAL Trading from the Netherlands. A dairy plant for goat milk needs an additional process steam supply as a temporary solution for approx. 2 years for the expansion of its product range. The customer’s requirements were high; in addition to a fully equipped container facility, the customer also wanted the ongoing operating costs to be as low as possible.
