KHS systems for Craft Brewers

Compact filling and skid cleaning systems

Innofill Can C – growing interest in the system has prompted KHS to engineer a new machine size with 27 filling valves and six seaming stations for the production of formats holding between 150 milliliters and one liter. This boosts the filling capacity for 330-milliliter cans, for instance, from 15,600 to 20,100 per hour

The innovative high-performance engineering for low-capacity brewing may be of interest in India as craft and micro-brewing by restaurants is increasingly allowed in its more cosmopolitan cities. KHS USA will be presenting its compact and effcient micro-brewing filling systems at this year’s BrewExpo America, which is staged as part of the Craft Brewers Conference. KHS’ main emphasis at the trade show will be on the tried-and-tested Innofill Can C can filler and the fully automatic Innopro Craft CIP Skid cleaning system. KHS will be exhibiting at Brew Expo at Stand 16033 from 8 to 11 April 2019.

With the development of its Innopro Craft CIP Skid, KHS provides a new system for the supply of rinsing and cleaning media to its can, bottle or keg fillers. “This CIP system is perfectly tailored to the requirements of the lowest capacity range,” states Rick Feuling, product manager of Filling and Process Technology at KHS USA. It has an automatic recipe setting option. Around 230 liters of caustic a minute can be produced to sanitize system piping and fillers with a maximum of 60 valves.

The Innopro Craft CIP Skid also contains a fully automatic CIP media heating system, including chemicals dosing at the appropriate recipe-controlled concentration. This short- ens cleaning processes and makes them safer and simpler. “With this effective and flexible system, beverage producers also save on resources such as water and energy during operation,” says Feuling.

Innofill Can C can filler with greater capacity

The further developed version of the Innofill Can C can filler will also be spotlighted at BrewExpo America. Growing interest in the system has prompted KHS to engineer a new machine size with 27 filling valves and six seaming stations for the production of formats holding between 150 milliliters and one liter. This boosts the filling capacity for 330-milliliter cans, for instance, from 15,600 to 20,100 per hour.

Suitable for both the beer and CSD markets, not only are the can filler’s technology and compact design convincing – but also its fast installation time. As the filling and seam- ing stations, valve manifold, cladding and control cabinet on the Innofill Can C form an enclosed, ready-to-produce machine unit, all that has to be done during installation is to connect up the electrical cables, piping and conveyors. “Multiple reference projects realized on this market prove that KHS plant engineering has customers convinced. In addition to the growing number of craft brewers, medium- sized breweries are also asking for a cost-ef cient variant for the medium-capacity range,” emphasizes Feuling.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
