Efficiently dispensing drinks while minimising energy use is not just beneficial for the planet but also for your bottom line.
At Brewfitt, we offer a range of technical solutions to reduce your energy consumption and maximise your dispense systems, ensuring they run at their optimum. We'd like to share with you our top 5 energy-saving products for dispense:
1. Energy Saviour Plug
Older coolers might lack integrated timers or customisable settings to reduce energy consumption. This is where the Energy Saviour Plug can save you up to 30% on your cooler energy bill.
The app-driven device boasts numerous features that reduce your cooler energy consumption while maintaining peak performance when needed. Advanced learning algorithms continuously adapt to the device's operating parameters and the conditions of your cellar environment, ensuring maximum savings.
Additional features, such as cleaning mode, prevent lines from freezing during cleaning operations, and the device has override facilities to accommodate special events.

2. Remote coolers
Remote coolers are the heart of a dispense system, crucial for product temperature control and coolant circulation. These coolers house substantial volumes of coolant and are lined with coils that create "ice banks." These ice banks chill the liquid coolant, which is then circulated through a python (a bundle of product and coolant lines) from the cooler to the serving taps and back down to the pump, achieving cold drink temperatures.
Coolers are known to consume significant energy, often being the biggest energy consumers within a dispense system. Modern remote coolers come equipped with programmable digital thermostats, offering energy-saving functions like night mode, programmable trading patterns (including python refresh), and more.

3. Specialist coolants
Specialist coolants, such as the 2Flow range and DTX, are non-toxic, energy-efficient solutions designed specifically for cooler dispense systems. They offer various benefits, including:
- Improved heat transfer efficiency
- Easy pumping, especially at low temperatures
- Cost savings compared to traditional glycol
- Reduced volume for the same freeze protection
- Increased performance coefficient and significantly reduced energy bills.
Specialist coolants provide substantial energy savings, extend the life of coolers, and reduce breakdowns. These coolants cater to various dispense needs, including general dispense and cocktails.

CoolTube, the fit-and-forget line of compact heat exchangers, excels in providing superior heat exchange capabilities. These units are not only conveniently sized for easy handling but also allow for variable dispense temperatures at the point of service. Available in multiple configurations, CoolTube seamlessly integrates into your dispense system in the bar or cellar, significantly improving its efficiency and cooling capabilities.
CoolTube heat exchangers can even eliminate the need for additional coolers and shelf coolers in larger venues, resulting in significant energy consumption and breakdown reductions while improving drink temperatures.

5. Lindr units
Lindr units are compact, portable, easy-to-use over-counter dispense units that can be used with or without gas. Available in various sizes, they are perfect for venues where a full cellar system isn't required.
These units only consume energy when in use and are ready to serve beer within 10 minutes of switching on. Lindr cooling technology is 45% more efficient than its power input, making it an incredibly energy-efficient solution for serving draught beer, prosecco, cider, and more.
The green line cooler also boasts positive environmental credentials, thanks to the use of ecological refrigerant R-290. The cooler is made of fully recyclable materials and lacks polyurethane insulation.
