Madison River Brewing Co: Great Beers From The “Outdoorsman’s Paradise”
Based in southwest Montana’s Gallatin Valley (“an outdoorsman’s paradise”), this wonderful brewery’s epic thirst-quenchers first made their mark in 2004 around Bozeman, an area renowned for its fabulous fly fishing and majestic mountains.
Now Madison River’s beers are enjoyed throughout the whole of Montana (America’s fourth-largest state). And in neighbouring Idaho, Wyoming and North Dakota too. The beers have developed this impressive following for one simple reason…
“They taste great.”
Problem: Moist Bottles, Non-Sticking Labels, Mould In Case Boxes
Madison River had just switched from cold-glue to pressure-sensitive labels. But they weren’t adhering well to the bottles. Excessive moisture on the bottles made them too wet for the labels to stick correctly.
Worse still – the moisture was causing damp problems. Mould was starting to appear in the case boxes after storage. These issues were causing expensive downtime and money losses from discarded labels and boxes.
Madison River needed a dependable drying solution that was simple, reliable and highly cost-effective.
So we provided one…
Solution: ACI’s Cb-B Craft Brewery Bottle Drying System
These tried and trusted air knives – though tailored to the needs of craft brewers – are standard (rather than custom) so they’re very cost-effective.
The Cb-B is sized for line speeds of <10,000 bottles/hour. It can dry all sizes of glass and PET bottles, providing a minimum water removal efficiency of 96%…and reducing operating costs by up to 90%.
Two 600 mm stainless steel (304) air knives blow clean, oil-free air at lower pressures – reducing the power required and noise of the system.
This system is also safer to use than compressed air: the low-pressure air presents no danger to operators. And it’s also quieter (92dBA). An optional acoustic enclosure is available for the 7.5kW centrifugal radial-blade blower.
The Cb-B Craft Brewery Bottle Drying System is backed by a 12-month warranty.
Results: Lower Drying Costs – Superior Performance
Shipping took just a few weeks from Madison River’s original enquiry. We set up the blower ready for the brewery’s line speed – so the team there could install the drying system quickly and easily.
Now they’re enjoying great performance from a smart, compact air knife system they snapped up for a very competitive price.
“Pricing Was The Best, The System Solved All Our Problems.”
“The blower and vents were easy to set up and install, and Jon (Jon Jordan, Air Control Industries, JetBlack Safety, Maine, USA) has been checking in since we purchased the system.
“Since we installed the product, our labelling issues have stopped and we no longer worry about moisture in our case boxes causing problems.”
