The SX technology uses the pressure fluctuations of cavitation for increased extraction of hop flavors for breweries. This allows for reductions of 50% or more in bittering hops, dry hopping aroma hops and other flavor ingredients. Flavor compounds, such as hops for beer, are one of the most expensive least efficiently used ingredients representing tremendous opportunity. The technology also provides more production with increased hopping speed and less beer soaked hops.

The SX technology can provide brewers benefits such as:

  • 50% less bittering hops
  • 50% less dry hopping aroma hops
  • Impart other flavors such as fruits, coffee and wood chips
  • Increased hopping speed
  • Minimized protein damage
  • Sell more finished beer with less beer soaked hop waste
