Beer lines have to be cleaned because a scale called calcium oxalate, commonly referred to as “beer stone” forms on the fittings, lines and taps. Beer stone if not completely removed in a cleaning process will leave an unsanitary surface that can harbour micro-organisms.
Shelf Life of Beer
Line cleaning, with the proper equipment and chemical, eliminates the build-up of beer stone protecting the integrity of the product. Bacteria will grow very quickly if a sanitary environment is not maintained, causing “off-flavours” or shortening the shelf life of the beer.
Clean for Quality
Regular cleaning and sanitizing of the beer lines assures that bacteria does not have the opportunity to reach levels which affect the quality and taste of the beer.
