Alfa Laval has bought Sandymount, a US-based company with a patented membrane technology to concentrate beer.

Sandymount’s patented membrane technology, Revos™, enables beer producers to deliver high quality beer in concentrated form.

Alfa Laval says that the technology will strengthen its position in sustainable beer production.

“This new technology is a valuable complement to Alfa Laval’s portfolio of brewery solutions which will enable us to deliver processes for high-quality concentrated beer,” said Nish Patel, president of Alfa Laval’s Food & Water Division. “Innovative and validated solutions like this will improve our customers’ supply chains and thereby have a positive impact on both their bottom line and the environment.”

Ronan McGovern, founder of Sandymount, said: “The Revos technology has been verified and validated by major breweries and I am excited to see it become part of Alfa Laval and leverage the organisation’s experience and global footprint in solution delivery.”

The newly acquired company, with its founder and employees, will be integrated into the Food Systems Business unit of Alfa Laval’s Food & Water Division.
