How does it monitor...

 

Cellar cooling?
A device is installed in the cellar which takes the ambient temperature constantly. If at any time the cooler fails to perform within a preset specification, an alarm is automatically generated highlighting the issue. The alarm is also visible on the headline page of the website.

 

How does the system monitor my cellar equipment?
The system has a number of devices installed which constantly monitor the performance of the key pieces of equipment that affect your beer quality. The remote coolers have sensors fitted to both the inlet and outlet, which constantly monitor both the flow and temperature. If at any time the equipment fails to perform within a preset specification, an alarm is automatically generated highlighting the issue. The alarm is also visible on the headline page of the website.

 

How does the system monitor line cleaning?
Intelligent flow meters are installed on every line under the bar counter. The meters can distinguish whether the fluid passing through the meter is beer, water, or line cleaning fluid. Therefore the volumes that are displayed on the web site for comparison against the till are beer only, with volumes identified as water or line cleaning fluid removed. If you have any concerns about the volumes or liquid types please contact the idraught helpline, who can carry out diagnostic checks.

 

How does the system know my beer temperatures?
Each flow meter has a temperature sensor installed within it, and the temperature of every fluid ounce is recorded to provide an indication of the quality of serve to the customer. For quality reporting temperatures are only ever given for beer volumes, and not water used in the cleaning process.

 

How does the system know my pouring yield?
The meter records every fluid ounce that is dispensed; this is then displayed as a fraction of a pint. The system compares the fraction of pint to the expected drink size served, and based on this measure whether the drink had been over or under poured. For example if the system records 0.96 of a pint then the expected drink served is a unit of 1 pint. If the system records 1.01 of a pint the expected drink served is still a unit of 1 pint. In the first example this will show a pouring yield of 104%. (I.e. a 4% liquid gain on that pint) The second example shows a slight over pour indicating a yield of 99%. (I.e. a 1% loss of liquid on that pint) Please note: iDraught measures every fluid ounce dispensed through the meter. If the dispense volumes are used for comparison against delivered volumes to your pub, the actual dispense is aggregated to arrive at a total dispense figure for each week. In the example above, the dispense volumes of 0.96 and 1.01 would be added together.

 

How does the system know my till yield?
When comparing against the tilled information the system uses the expected drink served, this is used to create a direct comparison of units (pints) For example if the system records 0.96 of a pint at 12pm then the expected drink served is a unit of 1 pint at 12pm. The system will look to compare the unit served against the entered tilled information and will aggregate this dependant on the granularity of the data (i.e. Hourly/Daily).
