Lauter Tun Wedge Wire Screen False Bottoms
Lauter Tun vessels are used in the craft beer brewing process between the mash tun and
the brew kettle. The lauter tun separates the barley husks from the clear liquid wort. The
barley husks provide a natural filter bed through which the wort is strained and drains out
of the lauter tun as a clear liquid.
False bottom screens can be constructed using round support rods or rectangular support rods.
Wedge wire screen is the preferred false bottom for lauter tun tanks in many breweries. The stainless steel wedge wire screen can be made in sections to fit through any man-way. Typically, the wedge wire false bottom screen has .030" slot openings tohold back the solids and allow liquid to pass through.
