LINEAR HIGH-SPEED KEG PRE-WASHERS, WASHERS AND FILLERS – BERGAMO

Speed from 250 KPH  and up. High-speed modular keg systems.

Fully automatic modular system of pre-washing, washing and filling for kegs, designed for high-speed and high-efficiency production lines.

The keg system consists of three modules: a pre-washing module, a washing module and a keg filler. Each module is made of AISI 304 stainless steel and equipped with six treatment heads.

The modular design allows to combine two or more systems, to increase the efficiency of the keg line.

The pre-washing and washing heads are in stainless steel AISI 304L or AISI 316L (in case of use of acid solution), with internal roughness <0.6 μ, equipped with EPDM seals, PTFE valve obturators and magnetic sensors, to control the opening of the fitting.

The filling heads are made of stainless steel AISI 316L, with internal roughness <0.6 μ, equipped with EPDM seals, PTFE valve obturators and magnetic sensors, to control the opening of the fitting.

The filling of the kegs is controlled by a flowmeter.

The kegs are introduced into the machine via a robotic system, which transfers them directly into the various treatment heads, equipped with devices for the control of the working cycles.

The electrical panel installed in the machine is made of stainless steel (IP54) and provided with PLC; the pushbutton control panel too is made of stainless steel (IP54) and provided with operator panel for the control and the setting of the machine operating parameters.

The modules are supplied complete with automatic sanitization systems that do not require the manual installation of false kegs.

  • Kegs
  • Extremely high efficiency rates and High hygiene degree.
  • Optimization of the cycle times due to a fast loading system and a working cycle which do not require the keg to be moved from one head to another inside the machine.
  • Reduced fitting gasket and spring wearing, as pre-washing, washing and filling processes are distributed on three heads: pre-washing is carried out on the first head, washing on the second and filling on the third, with significant reduction of keg maintenance cost.
  • The limited number of fitting opening strokes grants a reduced wear and tear of the guide sleeves and head components and, therefore, it leads to reduced downtimes, maintenance times and costs.
  • Improved flexibility of the line, thanks to the independence of each pre-washing, washing and filling head from the others. A damaged or faulty head can be excluded from operation while production continues on the others.
  • Equipped with components of well-known brands, easy to find on local markets.
  • Pre-cleaning and cleaning stations
  • Framework in AISI 304 stainless steel, sandblasted with microscopic glass beads and treated with thermo-protective varnish. The framework is provided with height-adjustable support feet.
