Details about RimoMalt

Three modules

The system has three modules - steeping (SU), heating (HU), and germination-kiln-unit (GKU). Bühler provides everything except the foundation, including solutions for fresh and wastewater. Expansion of the SU and GKU are possible. The SU is enclosed, insulated, and has a side grain elevator. Access is provided by a staircase and door. Bühler guides through installation to ensure smooth execution.

Outdoor installation

The plant is weatherproof and can be operated outdoors, saving additional investment costs for the construction of a building. In addition, the plant can be set up on a green field site, which offers great flexibility in the choice of location.

High energy-efficiency

The plant uses the latest malting technology to reduce energy consumption and achieve maximum efficiency. Various heating system options provide sufficient flexibility, while the cross-flow heat exchanger increases energy efficiency. RimoMalt is also designed to use as little water as possible during the malting process to minimise the environmental impact.

Full flexibility

RimoMalt offers you full flexibility in production and is tailored exactly to your needs. You can have the plant custom designed and built to meet the requirements of your process.
