Pneumatic Scale Angelus, a Barry-Wehmiller Packaging Systems company, is using its virtual space at PACK EXPO Connects to demonstrate a filler and seamer with a growing beverage market in mind. To meet the growing demand for hard seltzers, Ready-to-Drink (RTD) cocktails, sparkling wine, and higher-carbonation beer, the CB50C counter-pressure canning line scales PSA’s long history of expertise in high-speed beverage applications for the needs of the Craft market.
Counter-pressure technology allows you to fill highly carbonated beverages – in excess of 2.7 vols of CO2 – by maintaining equivalent pressure in the can being filled and the product tank supplying the product. Maintaining this pressure prevents breakout, or excess foaming, that releases CO2 and ultimately lowers carbonation. True isobarometric filling, with the fill tank located above the fill heads, allows the product to be gravity-fed versus pumped upward, ensuring less product agitation for a quiet fill and lower CO2 loss.
Using proprietary magnetic flowmeter technology, the CB50C also ensures industry-leading fill accuracy, to within 1 mL precision. Integrated with a best-in-class Angelus seamer, the CB50C ensures a hermetic double seam to prevent the loss of gas and subsequent introduction of air that alter product taste, shelf life, and ultimately, brand reputation.
The CB50C counter-pressure filler joins the Pneumatic Scale Angelus inline canning system portfolio with an integrated 6-head filler and single-head can seamer, rated for continuous operation at speeds up to 50 cans per minute (CPM). Rotary options are also available, for Craft brewers looking to expand their overall production, but keep their canning footprint relatively small.
