Entire Brewery Contents On The Block

Park Village Auctions will bring to market the entire contents of a brewery by way of a simulcast auction on Tuesday the 10th of November.

That’s the word from PVA’s Werner Burger who says that the upcoming sale presents a favourable way to acquire affordable CapEx equipment following the devastating effects of lockdown.

“It’s no secret that brewers are struggling after forced shut down for several months. Thankfully, the market is still as thirsty as ever. The aim for [alcohol] producers is to expand operations to meet the demand without over-extending—and this auction makes that possible,” says Burger.

A vertical hand-fired steam boiler, a Bevtec condensate return tank chemical dosing unit, a galvanised finish and in-line grit collector are among the first lots to be sold.

Under the banner of fermenters and tanks, assorted stainless 20 000L and 40 000L fermenters, stainless 8 000L and 20 000L vessels; a stainless 6 000L tank with dry solids; and a stainless 7 000L tank designed to process milled sorghum will be made available.

Lots to follow include a 48-inch Vibroscreen, Spadoni Diatomaceous earth filters, an Alpha Laval Centrifugal clarifier, packaging head vessels, an outlet conveyor to shrink wrapper, and CIP Hot water vessels.

Bag-in-box equipment comprises various bladder filling machines; a bag-in-box packaging line with box sealers, a packaging line conveyor system, a packaging line shrink wrapper; and a sachet machine.

Remaining specialised equipment includes an Airveyor for bottle transport, a Monoblock washing-filling-capping machine, a carbonator, a chiller and storage vessel for the carbonator, a 5L PET bottle rinser-and-filler, a 3L box sealer conveyor and shrink wrapper, an Algen power generator, a standby electricity generator, a water purification plant, an Inkjet label printer, in-line Filmatic label applicator cooling towers, a 3-phase low-pressure pump, a single-phase low-pressure pump, a high-level plastic storage tank, water treatment softener, various laboratory equipment, and an Aisle-Master articulated 1.5T high-reach electric forklift.

Assorted pallet racking, spare parts, spare conveyor chains, motors and pump equipment make up the last lots of the day.

The assets are located at number 54 5th Street, Marlboro, Sandton. Viewing will be held from 9am to 4pm on Friday the 6th and Monday the 9th of November. Burger says that viewing is essential and reminds the public that strict hygiene protocols (such as no mask; no entry) will be enforced.

The auction will then take place on-site and online simultaneously (simulcast), commencing at 11am on Tuesday the 10th of November.
