Logboat Brewery

Integrated Facility Services automated Logboat Brewing Company’s building control system to increase operational efficiency while safeguarding the system from harsh environmental factors. The project included the installation of custom built control panels featuring Reliable Controls, which allow real-time monitoring, regulating and adjustments of temperature, pressure and flow rates.IFS selected NEMA 4 panels for the enclosures as they are crucial for breweries, protecting against water, dust, and other contaminants that can damage equipment and cause electrical failures. The upgrade provides flexibility for changing production demands, facilitates energy management strategies, optimizes beer quality and reduces operational costs. 

“The project team brought expertise and dedication to this project,” said Josh Rein, head of Brewery operations for Logboat Brewing Company. “Their commitment to excellence and out-of-the-box thinking have truly made a difference and been a valuable asset.”

Challenge

Breweries must protect against water, dust, and other contaminants that can damage equipment and cause electrical failures. They must also precisely control the water temperature.

Solutions

IFS selected NEMA 4 panels to meet precise product and facility needs. Logboat can now monitor and adjust its brewing systems, both onsite and remotely in real-time. This also ensures maximum efficiency in the brewing process. The brewers can precisely control the water temperature used to ensuring the high quality of Logboat’s signature beverage products.  IFS also installed Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) to direct the water flow between the brewing house and the canning lines, which can be changed on demand whenever needed.  This enhancement will streamline operations and empower the brewery to meet growing consumer demands with agility and precision.
