NANO-X: Vol.3 – 125L NANO-X 2V Twin Plus+
Welcome to “The NANO-X Project….”
An experimental product series which explores our love of designing and building brewing systems.
NANO-X will dive deep into what is possible in the world of brewing.
Vol.3 – 125L NANO-X 2V Twin Plus+
We have supercharged the NANO-X 2V Twin to create a truly unique system that merges both the brewing & distilling worlds.
Introducing the NANO-X 2V Twin Plus+…
Featuring the same unique 2V manifold system, twin pumps & twin touchscreen controllers from the NANO-X 2V Twin, the Twin Plus+ includes all this PLUS the integration of a 4” Copper Pot Still!
The NANO-X 2V Twin Plus+ allows for Pro-Brewing & Distilling all out 1 compact 2V NANO System!
With this 125L NANO-X design crafted towards the “café styled” breweries, we knew that having the ability to both brew and distill out of a single system would allow for a more diversified product range for the small start-up breweries.
Looking back on our previous NANO-X designs, we saw the perfect opportunity to integrate a distilling option all within a single system. High quality and production volume was a focus for NANO-X Vol.3 and with the NANO-X 2V Twin built with volume and quality in mind, it made sense to integrate the 4” Copper Pot Still to create “The NANO-X 2V Twin Plus+”
Again with this NANO-X design we had a strong goal to make sure that all vessels required were included in this system. Production volumes of 100L of finished wort PLUS a 100L wash volume is all achievable with the Twin Plus+
We thought we pushed the boundaries with the NANO-X 2V Twin BUT the Twin Plus+ takes these boundaries to a whole new level!
The NANO-X 2V Twin Plus+ is unique in design and operation.
Note: When setup for brewing/mashing, the 4” Copper Pot Still will not need to be integrated within the system.
Brewing/Mashing: With the brewing/mashing operation requiring only 2 vessels (Mash Tun & Boil/Sparge Kettle), the system runs in a “figure 8” pattern. Starting with the total water requirements split between both vessels, wort is simultaneously run from the Mash Tun into the Boil/Sparge Kettle and back from the Boil/Sparge Kettle into the mash tun.
The process runs through this figure 8 cycle until both kettles reach an equilibrium pre-boil gravity target. Once this point is reached, the Boil/Sparge kettle pump is stopped and all remaining wort from the Mash tun is transferred into the boil kettle.
At this point your brew day / mashing runs as normal and integrates the unique NANO-X 2V Twin Manifold System to allow whirlpooling, chilling and fermenter transfer at the turn of a valve.
Distilling: Running your still will require a simple reconfiguration of mash tun to remove the GrainStopper False Bottom and attach your 4” Copper Pot Still to the Domed Kettle Lid. The Mash Tun has now been converted into a dedicated boiler to run your Copper 4” Pot Still.
125L NANO Electric Mash Tun: NANO Mash Tun powered by a 4500W element and controlled via the touchscreen technology controller. Mashing temperature is controlled with ultra-high accuracy through the advanced temperature control algorithm capability. Advanced control features such as automated step mashing, ramp rate delays are all available with the intuitive touchscreen controller. The Mash Tun Pump is also operated via the touchscreen controller with the simple touch of a button.
The 125L Mash Tun is fitted with the NANO GrainStopper False Bottom. The intuitive design of this False Bottom covers the entire floor of the mash tun to allow wort to draw from below the false bottom. This design also allows for the element to be inserted below the false bottom with full protection from grain contact. The entire outer leg ring base is perforated so if grain slips through the top, the outer ring will stop any grain entering the pump. There is also an inner ring base to provide extra support to prevent false bottom from caving in.
125L NANO Boil/HLT Kettle: NANO Boil/HLT Kettle is powered by a 5750W element and controlled via the second touchscreen technology controller. Voltage control is integrated into the controller system to allow you to fully control the boil rate and avoid any boil over issues.
Boiler timers/alarms can be set to cue any important addition times throughout the boil process. The Boil/HLT pump is also operated via this second controller with the simple touch of a button.
4” Copper Pot Still with Whiskey Helmet: Constructed from high quality 99.9% Copper, this Pot Still attachment will allow you to produce authentic rum and whiskey. Tri Clover fitted, this Copper Pot Still will attach to your 125L Boiler in seconds. A packing plate will also allow the addition of packing media to create some reflux if required.
Pro-Domed Recirculation Lid: Create the ultimate control for your mash recirculation using the NANO Brewery Pro-Domed Recirculation Lid.
Constructed from solid 304SS, this domed lid sits securely onto your NANO 125L Mash Tun and is fitted with an internal 304SS Shower Head Spray Ball. This NANO designed shower ball is constructed with 1.5mm holes and positioned to allow for gentle and even recirculation throughout your grain bed.
NANO-X 2V Twin Manifold System: Exclusively designed for ultimate flexibility in your brewing. With the simple turn of a valve, the functional design allows for in-line mash recirculation, whirlpool operations & fermenter transfer. Constructed using high quality 304SS fittings with integrated flex line to allow for flexible positioning of pumps and equipment on your brew stand.
High-Performance Pumps: The NANO-X 2V Twin gets nothing but the best… that’s why we’ve included 2 x high performance curved blade impeller pumps. These pumps can handle up to 21ft of head pressure for optimal performance. The Stainless-Steel Pump Head is tri-clover fitted which fully dissembles in seconds for easy cleaning.
The linear flow valve provides superior flow control so you can precisely control your mash recirculation flow rate. The air vent valve allows fast & efficient priming of pumps so you can avoid any airlocks. A fully rotatable pump head mean you have the flexibility to position your pump where best suits.
Touchscreen Technology Controllers: The NANO-X 2V Twin is integrated with 2 x high precision touchscreen technology controllers. Each of the Boil/HLT & Mash Kettle is fully operated (elements & pumps) by the touchscreen control system.
Mashing temperature is controlled with ultra-high accuracy through the advanced temperature control algorithm capability. Advanced control features such as automated step mashing, ramp rate delays are all available with the intuitive touchscreen controller. The Mash Tun Pump & Boil/HLT Kettle is also operated via the touchscreen controller with the simple touch of a button.
Voltage control is integrated into the controller system to allow you to fully control the boil rate and avoid any boil over issues. Boiler timers/alarms can be set to cue any important addition times throughout the boil process. The Boil/HLT pump is also operated via this second controller with the simple touch of a button.
304SS Tri Clover Build: All kettles built from 1.2mm thick 304SS. Constructed with a triple base bottom for optimal heat induction and distribution across the base. Each vessel contains 1 x welded 2” Ferrule to simply attach heating element.
304SS Tri Clover Fittings for simple setup and long-lasting quality.
