Magic Rock Brewery Huddersfield.
Our plant installation back in 2015 has seen our state of the art instrumentation benefit Magic Rock Brewery of Huddersfield.
Magic Rock one of the UK’s most exciting new craft breweries in the UK and voted the second best new brewery in the world has expanded its operation into new state of the art premises in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
Stuart Ross, Head Brewer, recognised the importance of installing a waste water treatment plant at the outset of the new build and contracted Smart Storm to build a new pumping station, pH balancing system and install waste water monitoring equipment. In addition Smart Storm were contracted to carry out all ground works for the treatment plant and install a new water main to the brewery.
Work has started on a pH treatment plant in April and was completed in July. Smart Storm installed its revolutionary Universal Smart Instrument which as a single instrument measures flow and pH and controls the pH dosing pumps as well as logging all parameters. Coupled with a Hydrocell two bottle automated sampler, pH balancing tank and underground pumping station, this system will enable Magic Rock Brewery to comply with its Water company consents and provide accurate flow measurement for billing purposes.
Dr John Duffy, managing Director of Smart Storm comments “Normally, we install treatment plants as an afterthought which can cause horrendous logistical problems on sites but in this case it was great that Magic Rock had the foresight to identify their needs at the start of their new build. And of course our installation engineers where delighted to be involved in a brewery which has such a high profile and of course not to mention the new on-site tap room”.
Coincidentally, Smart Storm are also starting installation of a large effluent treatment plant at Botanix in Tunbridge Wells, which is one of the world’s largest hops processors and also the main source of hops to Magic Rock. It seems a small world!
