Barrett Burston Malting is a major supplier of malt to Australia’s domestic and international brewing industry for more than 150 years. Our client required an upgrade to their burners to support the production of high-quality malt products to suit all types of beers and brewing methods. Their kilns were low-efficient and produced high-emission levels.
We supported Barrett Burston Malting by helping them overhaul their outdated burners for a modern system of nitrogen oxide (NOx)-free, high performance Varinox heaters. We also installed glass tube heat exchanger units supplied by Swiss company Flucorrex.
The project ran for nine months. Brunton completed the project in-line with the client’s production schedule. This ensured the client could maintain the 300 tonnes of malt supplied each day to breweries around Victoria. This project showcased Brunton’s expertise in several trades and areas of engineering.
