Brewfitt is pleased to announce that it has been shortlisted for The University of Huddersfield Innovation Award at The Huddersfield Examiner Business Awards.
The award category was open to any business engaged in the commercialisation of research and development of intellectual property, across all sectors. Brewfitt has a specific research and development function which focuses on developing new technologies to stay ahead of the competition and be seen as a key driver in the industry.
Its latest innovation is the combination of its core products CoolTube and 2Flow, which has been developed by Neil Paxman. Working together, one simple change of the coolant flow rate will change the temperature of a dispense product instantly. Installation is simple, with the smaller coolers allowing for substantial energy savings. No product coils are required in the primary cooler, creating greater efficiencies with greatly improved maintenance and breakdown procedures. With CoolTube and 2Flow no secondary cooler is required under the bar which creates more storage space and reduces energy consumption. Brewfitt sees this as the future of cooling within the drinks dispense market.
Curtis Paxman, Managing Director of Brewfitt commented: “We are delighted to have been nominated for The University of Huddersfield Innovation Award. At Brewfitt we invest a lot of time into the research and development of our products and work hard to ensure that we are continually at the fore front of the industry. To be shortlisted for this award is a great honour.”
Winners will receive their trophies and certificates at a gala awards night on Thursday, November 3, at the Galpharm Stadium. BBC Look North presenter Harry Gration will be hosting the gala event, which will also include a celebrity speaker.

The clocks have gone forwards and we’ve seen the first signs of sunshine which means Summer is on its way!
This means outdoor events, weddings, garden parties, summer festivals and fetes for which organising the sale of beer and cider can sometimes be a problem. However, our Draught Beer Box can provide the perfect ‘pub quality’ chilled beverages, it’s easy to set up and it’s portable.
The Draught Beer Box is a compact, insulated box with a unique 30m stainless steel coil to superchill drinks to between 2ºC and 6 ºC. The box simply needs filling with ice and connecting to our Compressed Air System (CAS) and drinks are ready to pour within five minutes.
CAS is a gasless system which plugs into the mains electricity and attached to both the draught beer box and keg using the existing coupler and gas line. The system allows the safe dispense of draught products without the need for N² or CO² and has no industry regulatory requirements.
For anyone organising an event this Spring or Summer, please contact us for more details on 01484 340800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to hear from you soon!
From 18th – 20th October, we will be attending the International Brewing Convention held at Manchester Central. You can find us on stand C7!
The three day conference programme includes an exhibition of industry suppliers which encompasses the entire supply chain. We have secured a stand at the exhibition which we will use as a chance to display 2Flow, CoolTube and our different fonts. The convention will provide us with an invaluable opportunity to exchange ideas with over 60 delegates and exhibitors which will help us to develop successful business strategies for the future.
CoolTube is one of our latest innovations. It’s a revolutionary new hear exchanger that employs leading edge fluid dynamic technology to give maximum efficiency in a minimum space. It is over 6 times smaller and lighter than a standard remote cooling pod.
So, if you’re interested in any of our products or want to know more about us then feel free to come and visit us on our stand where we will be happy to provide you with more information.
We recently attended the China BevTek 2010 exhibition in Shanghai and gave a presentation to the general annual meeting of the China National Food Industry Association Beer Committee, which attracted over 150 brewers from across China, including market leaders, Inbev, Tsingtao and SAB Miller amongst others.
The presentation on 2Flow was a great success and gained plenty of interest from the attendees.
We are aiming to increase our presence in China over the next year or so as we continue to expand the company globally so keep an eye out for any news on this!
