In-Line Reduction System
The traditional method of reduction the strength of spirit prior to filling
casks for maturation is time-consuming and requires at least one additional vat
to hold the reduced spirit. J.E. Cockayne Ltd's innovative in-line cask filling
reduction system saves time and vat space when compared to traditional methods,
and shows a rapid return on the investment.
Continuing our innovative approach to control processes,
J.E. Cockayne Ltd have designed and installed the Whisky industry's first in-line
cask filling reduction system. This system reduces the spirit from the distilled
strength to the cask filling strength as the spirit is being pumped from the high
strength spirit receiver directly to the cask.
To achieve the high accuracy required, the Cockayne system
uses a combination of accurate metering, strength measurement and flow control,
and is controlled and recorded using a PLC / SCADA interface.
The Cockayne reduction system is equally well adapted
to the accurate blending of products in pre-determined ratios.
