German brewer invests in new kit

Related tags: Carbon dioxide

German brewery Arcobräu Gräfliches Brauhaus, which has its headquarters in the Lower Bavarian village of Moos, has brought its bottling kit up to date with a new filler from Krones, plus a Checkmat bottle inspector and associated conveyors.

It has purchased a Modulfill HES filler with crowner, plus a Checkmat FM-HF fill level inspector with logo detection, plus the bottle conveyors.

The filler is an energy-efficient, probe-controlled filling system, without a vent tube, featuring a tubular ring bowl with 96 filling valves and an 18-head crowner. It has been prepared for subsequent retrofitting of a capper.

With a rated output of 33,000 0.5-litre beer bottles an hour, it is designed to handle both top- and bottom-fermented beers.

Double pre-evacuation with interpolated carbon dioxide flushing ensures minimised oxygen values, which enhances the stability of the beer's taste. Warm filling at temperatures greater than 15°C is also possible without any reduction in output.
