At Close Brothers Brewery Rentals, we offer a range of repair and maintenance services at our Thurnscoe site, including internal cask and keg cleaning.

Our washing facility is a world first and leader in design, efficiency and reducing environmental impact. 

We use ultra-high-pressure (UHP) water jets at 2,000 bar pressure to clean and sanitise containers. It removes all biological matter and beer stone, a scaly residue known as calcium oxalate often found inside beer containers due to the cycle of substances that enter a vessel such as, alkaline cleaners, hard water minerals and amino acids.

This innovative process has many benefits, including:

  • Using ultra-high-pressured water reduces the need for chemicals that are harmful to the environment and difficult to dispose of.
  • Integrating UHP into our washing process allows us to increase our capacity to almost double the previous output.
  • The improved hygiene of containers provides better quality beer, untainted by impurities.

We also use UHP to remove customer identification paint bands from kegs and casks, so they can have a new lease of life with a different brewer. This process is known as UHP polishing.
