Case Study: Is hotter liquefaction better?
What are the energy and economic differences of running the front end (slurry and liquefaction) at two different temperatures: 185°F and 195°F?
In the 195°F case, the hotter liquefact increased the beer feed temperature. We took advantage of this by reducing the steam used to heat the beer feed (by reducing steam to the evaporators).
Conclusion: Hotter liquefaction requires more natural gas & mash cooler duty and reduces overall economics.
