What is a Horzontal Lagering Tank?
Lagering is a method of beer aging at or near-freezing temperatures that lasts for anywhere from several weeks to several months. Lagering takes place after fermentation has been completed. Stacked horizontal lagering tanks are used to store the aging beer after initial fermentation has been completed. Lagering tanks are conditioning tanks where beer is stored from 1-6 months to clarify and lager before the beer is packaged or served.
Stacked horizontal lagering tanks are unique in design. All of our lagering tanks are identical so our tanks can be stacked with either tank being the top or the bottom tank. This allows expanding breweries to buy a tank today and additional tanks in the future with the ability to stack the new tanks on top of the original tanks.

2 tanks Horzontal Lagering Tank
These cylindrical beer maturation tanks have the easiest construction therefore there is possible to purchase them for the lowest price. We produce these tanks in single-jacketed version without any cooling channels. Tanks have to be placed in insulated chilled room or insulated cooling box, where the space is cooled with external air cooling unit. Main advanatage is their low purchase cost. Their disadvantage is that the temperature in each tank cannot be regulated independly regardless of the other tanks. The human operating comfort is lower as well because operators work in cold and humid surroundings. The electric consumption is higher when tanks are cooled with air instead the liquid. Yet this type of tanks is most commonly used in brewery restaurants mainly due to investment savings.
