The Challenge

The owners sought a piping system to transfer a glycol/water mixture from the chiller to the fermenting tanks and the cold-water storage tanks. Typical options weren’t durable enough for the circumstances.


The Solution

Aquatherm Blue Pipe delivered a more durable solution than plastic and a less expensive one than metal, along with a 10-year multimillion dollar warranty.


With its polypropylene-random (PP-R) pressure piping increasingly being used on a wide variety of applications, Aquatherm is beginning to carve out a niche in process piping brewery applications. The new Aardwolf Brewery in Jacksonville, FL, selected Aquatherm Blue Pipe® as the primary piping component in its fermentation process.

The pipe is used to transfer a glycol/water mixture from the chiller to the fermenting tanks and the cold-water storage tanks. Aquatherm Blue Pipe was the only piping option that met the unique demands of this newly opened, up-and-coming brewery whose plans for expansion are already on the horizon.
