The forward-thinking breweries benefitting from Coolflow right now

Cost effective wort cooling, brewing and bottling all benefit from energy efficient heat transfer. Hydratech’s Coolflow process cooling fluids are industry proven to increase productivity, reduce maintenance and lower operating costs.

Brewing pioneers such as BrewDog use Coolflow DTX – a high performance, non-toxic secondary refrigerant, with an operating range of -50°C to +80°c - to achieve the extreme temperatures they need to experiment, develop and produce their innovative range of beers. BrewDog are big believers in the benefits of Hydratech’s DTX, it’s a product that’s been tried and tested by them over the last 4 years.

‘The big brewery in Ellon runs on DTX and when the time comes to swap the glycol out of the original brewery, we’ll be swapping that as well. It’s been a really good product for us.’
Niall Murphie, Chief Engineer, BrewDog

Performance wise, Coolflow DTX has very similar heat transfer and pumping characteristics to Ethylene Glycol and therefore benefits from numerous operating advantages. Coolflow DTX has helped breweries reduce energy consumption, carbon emissions and downtime – better for business and better for the environment.

It’s not just BrewDog who’ve embraced the change! Here’s a selection of other Coolflow adopters…

Beavertown
London based brewery Beavertown was founded in 2011 by Logan Plant, the son of Robert Plant, singer with Led Zeppelin. In June 2018, it was announced that Heineken N.V. would be buying a minority stake, so that Beavertown could spend £40 million on a new brewery and visitor site. The new brewery was launched in 2020, with a capacity of 500,000 hectolitres, a ten-fold increase in their previous capacity. Forward thinking beers including Gamma Ray, Neck Oil and Lupuloid have help the brewery gain a loyal fan base.

Tiny Rebel
Tiny Rebel was founded in Newport in 2012 by brothers-in-law Bradley Cummings and Gareth Williams. Williams had learned to homebrew with his grandfather and introduced his brother-in-law to the hobby. After brewing in Cumming's father's garage for a number of years, the pair decided to make their hobby their profession. They rented an industrial unit in the Maesglas area of the city. The neighbouring unit was quickly needed, and the brewery expanded into it a year after opening. The company opened their £2.6million brewery and bar in Rogerstone on 1 July 2017.

Camden Town
The London-based brewery founded in 2010 by Jasper Cuppaidge, the grandson of Laurie McLaughlin, who ran McLaughlin’s Brewery in Rockhampton, Australia from 1910-1960, along with an estate of 60 pubs. Camden Town Brewery officially started brewing. Hells Lager, a cross between Helles and Pilsner brewed with malt and hops sourced from Germany, debuted in Autumn 2010, and is now brewed and sold alongside a collection of core beers and occasional releases.

Tomos Watkin
Tomos Watkin’s beers are made in Wales and enjoyed worldwide. Growing from a small brewery in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire to their current brewery in Swansea, the third generation of beer lovers are best known for producing their session bitter Cwrw Braf, the sophisticated OSB and the refreshingly light Cwrw Haf. Their traditionally brewed beers are brewed the Tomos Watkin way - ‘with pride & passion’.

Fourpure
Inspired by the daring and innovative methods adopted by modern breweries and a passion for flavour, Dan and Tom set up Fourpure in Bermondsey, South East London in 2013. In November 2017 they installed and commissioned a fully-automated, state of the art GEA Craft-Star brewhouse. The upgrade was a game changer for the brewery with added efficiency and improved brewing capabilities. Core beers include session IPA’s, Hemisphere and Easy Peeler, Basecamp Lager and Last Train and Lost at Sea Stouts.
