A look back at Brau Beviale 2014

Cornelius Deutschland GmbH presented itself with an open exhibition stand design, giving visitors the opportunity to discover numerous innovations.

Among the highlights was the PearlMini, the latest development in countertop water dispensing that immediately caught the eye of visitors with its modern design. The PearlMini dispenses cooled, carbonated, medium carbonated and non-carbonated water. It has a touchless discharge with a special coating for the best possible hygiene. Thanks to its design, it can be operated as a normal countertop water cooler on the one hand. On the other hand, the dispensing column can be separated from the cooler, mounted on the counter and the cooler installed underneath. This gives the PearlMini a whole new character while retaining its stylish and classy charm.

In the beer sector, the energy consumption of beer coolers was measured live with results that convinced the industry experts. A conventional CR70, a new CR70 Plus with patented variable agitator motor and an ecoFlo70 with the full range of energy-efficient components were compared. Here the classic CR70 served as a baseline for energy efficiency currently common in the beer cooler market. The CR70 Plus saved 40% and the ecoFlo fully 70% energy compared to a conventional beer cooler.

Other highlights included the Viper, wowing visitors with delicious carbonated frozen drinks, and the Spire 2.0 which set new standards with its large, dynamic touch screen. This extraordinary dispensing tower makes it possible to refine conventional Pepsi beverages by adding syrup, creating an individual taste experience. The syrup is available in 6 different flavours such as cherry, lemon and vanilla.

Numerous new ideas in the small and replacement parts sector and a demo installation with the most important components in a transparent engineering room also drew lots of attention.

Around 37,000 industry visitors from Europe and all over the world attended the Brau Beviale 2014 trade fair. Products, solutions and trends for the production and cooling of beverages were presented by 1,133 exhibitors in 8 exhibition halls.
