Light in the storage cellar

Premium quality for a premium brewery.

With an annual output of 6,5 million hectoliters, Krombacher is Germany’s largest private brewery, and with the ownership of Schweppes Deutschland GmbH, also has the brand and sales rights for Schweppes, Orangina, and Dr Pepper in Germany and Austria. To expand the number of beer types, the brewery is continuously adding to its product range, which also means enlarging the production, fermenting, and storage capacities. Just recently, nine new storage tanks were installed, six of which have a capacity of 7000 hl, and three with 1500 hl each. Because of the numerous pipes and ventilation ducts in the bottom level of the storage facility, good lighting is problematic. Shadow areas are formed easily. To prevent this, an individual lighting concept was developed. Highly efficient luminaires with pivotable reflectors are used. PRACHT’s APOLLO T5 luminaires were installed. In spite of the difficult space conditions with three different ceiling heights in the building, only 138 luminaires were required in total. Krombacher has already been using APOLLO luminaires for quite a while. In accordance with process engineering specifications, the APOLLO features ruggedness with protection class IP65, tight sealing against wetness, steam, and dust, surfaces that are easy to clean, and of course, the typical long service life of PRACHT products. All the luminaires are linked to an energy-saving lighting control system that provides partial control depending on requirement, presence, or incident daylight. In their drive for more efficiency and sustainability, Krombacher chose the LED version of the APOLLO in their most recent lighting order for a loading area.

Krombacher has relied on PRACHT luminaires for many years. Also in the storage cellar, where 138 APOLLO T5 floodlights were installed, in single and dual-lamp versions with 49 - 80 W.
