Pneumatic Scale Angelus introduces CB100 canning line for craft brewers
More and more, canning is becoming the way craft breweries are getting their beer in the hands of customers. Now, Pneumatic Scale Angelus (PSA) is giving brewers a higher-speed option.
Last year at the Brewers Association Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America, PSA debuted its CB50 canning line filler-seamer combo. Due to demand for a higher-speed version of the CB50, at this year’s conference, PSA is introducing the CB100, which is capable of a variable speed range of 30 to 100 cans per minute.
The CB100 has many of the same features as the CB50, but for a high-speed canning line. The integrated 12-head hygienic inline filler, with proprietary flowmeter technology, helps brewers get a perfect fill with little waste, PSA said, adding the CB100’s gas flush systems help keep oxygen out of the beer.
The integrated system is optimized for a beverage can-height range of 2.13 to 8 inches, and is designed with quick-change adjustments for easy changeovers for various can heights and body diameters.
