Collar application and extraction systems

Speed range from 60 to 1.000 KPH and higher. Machines designed to deposit or remove a collar label on or off the keg neck.

Collar labels are very popular among breweries

and their use is spreading quickly. Collar application and extraction systems can be provided with automatic keg lines, in which the intervention of operators to perform manual operations is extremely reduced.

On the empty keg side of the line, a system for the removal of any collar still on the neck of the kegs can be installed, in order to prevent these labels to reach the external keg washer; a collar presence detection device communicates to the collar extraction system whenever a label needs to be removed.

On the full keg side of the line, a collar applicator can be used to deposit the collar label around each keg valve.
