Unclamp Strut and V-BAT Pipe Clamp


Our UNICLAMP Strut and V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp are highly versatile products securing pipes, conduits, and tubing to various structures. Here’s how it is typically employed in breweries:

Piping Systems Installation: Breweries rely on extensive piping systems to transport water, wort, beer, and cleaning agents throughout the facility. Our UNICLAMP Strut and V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp provide a reliable method to secure these pipes to walls, ceilings, and floors. Our Clamp's robust construction ensures that pipes remain securely in place, preventing leaks and maintaining the system's integrity.

Easy Adjustments: Our UNICLAMP Strut and V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp offer the flexibility needed for easy adjustments, which is crucial in brewery settings where process changes may require repositioning or adding new piping. Their design and functionality allow for modifications without causing extensive downtime.


Safety and Efficiency in Breweries


The safety and efficiency of the brewing process are paramount. Both the UNICLAMP Strut and the V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp contribute significantly to these aspects in several ways:

Leak Prevention: Properly secured pipes minimize the risk of leaks, which is essential for maintaining beer quality and consistency. Preventing leaks also enhances safety and conserves valuable resources.

Ease of Maintenance: These clamps facilitate quick and efficient maintenance of brewery pipes and equipment, reducing downtime and ensuring smooth operations. UNICLAMP pipe clamps are maintenance-free.

Strength and Reliability: The robust design of the UNICLAMP Strut and V-BAT™ Pipe Clamps withstands demanding brewery conditions, ensuring safe and functional infrastructure, and protecting both the product and personnel.

Corrosion Resistance: Designed to handle humid environments and chemical exposure, our UNICLAMP clamps excel in brewery settings.


Materials Used for Piping in Breweries


Stainless Steel: The most common material used due to its resistance to corrosion, durability, and ease of cleaning.

Copper: Used for certain heat exchangers but less common due to its reactivity with acidic solutions.

PVC and CPVC: Used for specific applications, such as water lines, but not typically for wort or beer due to potential leaching and lower temperature resistance.


Investigating Corrosiveness in the Brewery Process:

Cleaning Agents: Breweries use strong alkaline and acidic cleaners to sanitize equipment. Common chemicals include caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) and nitric/phosphoric acid blends. These agents are highly corrosive, particularly to certain metals.

Wort and Beer: The wort (unfermented beer) and beer have low pH levels. This acidity can be mildly corrosive over time, especially to metals not specifically designed to resist acidic environments.

Water Treatment Chemicals: Chlorine and other disinfectants used in water treatment can also be corrosive.

Carbon Dioxide: CO2 gas is released through the fermentation process.  When combined with water it forms carbonic acid, which is highly corrosive to metals and copper


pH Levels in the Brewery Process

The pH scale runs from 1 to 14, with 1 being the most acidic and 14 the most basic, 7 is neutral.

  • Mash: pH around 5.2 to 5.6.
  • Wort and beer: pH drops to around 4.0 to 5.2.
  • Fermentation: pH of beer between 4.0 to 5.0.
  • Cleaning Solutions: Can have pH levels from very acidic (2.0-3.0) to highly alkaline (11.0-13.0).

Acid and Alkaline Corrosion

The most common type of acidic corrosion is rust and Alkaline corrosion can be particularly damaging to aluminum and magnesium alloys. The corrosion process can cause pitting, which can weaken the metal and cause it to fail.


Temperature and Pressure

  • Mashing: Conducted between 143°F to 162°F (62°C to 72°C)
  • Boiling: Generally at 212°F (100°C).
  • Fermentation: Depends on the yeast used:
    • Ale yeast: 59°F to 75°F (15°C to 24°C)
    • Lager yeast: 45°F to 55°F (7°C to 13°C)
  • Conditioning: Varies widely, often at cool temperatures, around 32°F to 39°F (0°C to 4°C)

Pressure is primarily a concern during the fermentation process. The production of carbon dioxide creates pressure in the fermentation vessel. Fermentation tanks are designed to withstand this pressure, and safety valves are used to release excess pressure.

The materials used in manufacturing our UNICLAMP Strut and V-BAT™ Pipe Clamps are resistant to corrosion, acids, chemicals, and pitting, withstanding heat and pressure, ensuring long-term performance and reducing the risk of failures that could lead to accidents or production halts.


In conclusion, Our UNICLAMP Strut and V-BAT™ Pipe Clamps are indispensable tools in the brewery industry. Their versatility, durability, and ease of installation make them ideal for securing the extensive piping systems required in a brewery. By ensuring that pipes are securely fastened, these clamps help maintain the efficiency and safety of the brewing process. Whether it’s the initial installation or ongoing maintenance, the use of these high-quality clamps from UNICLAMP USA contributes significantly to the smooth operation and success of a brewery.
