The Innofill Can C can filler KHS GmbH satisfies the demand of smaller breweries on the international market. It gives operators the technological innovations of the big machines and is convincing with its compact design and quick installation. This is one of the reasons why KHS is launching a further machine size with a greater capacity to market this year.
KHS shipped the can filler in a single container to the customer in Vancouver where it was commissioned on site on a plug-and-produce basis without any need for complicated installation processes.
As the 21 filling and three seaming stations, valve manifold, cladding and control cabinet on the Innofill Can C form an enclosed, ready-to-produce machine unit, all that had to be done during installation was to connect up the electricity cables, piping and conveyors.
The Innofill Can C is designed for low to medium outputs depending on the can size. KHS is to initially implement a further machine size this year in order to increase the capacity for filling 330-milliliter cans from 15,600 to 27,800 cans per hour. “In addition to craft brewers, who continue to grow and grow, medium-sized breweries are also increasingly asking for further cost-efficient machines for the medium capacity range,” emphasizes Rathbun.
According to specifications the can filler can also process carbonated soft drinks or CSDs. “The output is then slightly higher”, Rathbun states
