Flecks Brauhaus, Austria
Brewing is a very suitable application for solar thermal systems, because of the relatively low temperatures used in several production phases.
In the brewery of Flecks in Frohnleiten, a solar thermal system with Savosolar collectors is used to support the hot water production required by the brewing process. The heat from the collectors is stored in four 3,000 litre water tanks for later use in the brewing process. The mounted collectors also act as a rain shield.
