PROFILL CAN


PROFILL Beer CAN Filler

The ProFill Beer Can filling system is a state-of-the-art, high-speed, mechanically controlled can filling system designed around proven European counter-pressure-gravity filling technology and can seaming technology. The ProFill Can is designed to fill beer in a variety of can sizes and volumes offering today’s craft brewers a wide range of flexibility. The ProFill Can filling systems achieve filling speeds ranging from 80 cans per minute with (12oz. cans) up to 300 cans per minute while delivering very precise fill levels, very low O2 pickup and minimal product loss.

The ProFill Beer Can fillers incorporate a highly engineered, and superior manufactured, rotary, high-speed, precision can seaming system that produces perfectly seamed cans while minimizing O2 pickup and product loss. The seaming machine is integrated into the can filling system with a common-base design and a high-speed tangential can discharge ensuring optimal high speed can control, very low O2 pickup and superior product integrity


  • Designed specifically for the growing craft brewery industry by delivering a wide range of canning options and flexibility at a best-in-class value
  • Very low Dissolved Oxygen pickup (< 30ppb) is achieved with CO2 pre-purge technology from an independent CO2 channel, and tangential can transfer with under-cover gassing
  • Precise vent-tube fill height control system with true counter-pressure-gravity filling technology for high-speed operation and superior product yield
  • Rotary filler and seamer design on a common-base with a tangential discharge, ensures perfect synchronization, high-speed operation, and reliable mechanical maintainability
  • Variable speed operation to meet production requirements and maintain high efficiency
  • Quick & easy adjustable Filler-Seamer height adjustment for different size containers (i.e. 12oz & 16oz.)
  • US based parts, service & support

Features & Benefits

1

PLC Controls & Electronic Automation

ProFill Beer Can fillers utilize reliable and respected industrial PLCs and components from Rockwell Automation (Allen-Bradley) for superior automation and production reliability. The Compact Logix PLC monitors all functions of the system ranging from filling bowl level and pressure settings, product temperature, container presence, container jam, can-end presence, production speed, and many other critical parameters. The integrated PLC with color touchscreen HMI (human machine interface) displays all functions, conditions and alarm messages.

CO2 Purge, Counter Pressure Fill, and CO2 Snift

Unlike inline can fillers that don’t seal the can, the ProFill Can filler utilizes true counter-pressure-gravity filling technology to purge the can with CO2  before filling, positively seal the can while filling, and snift the can after filling. These functions help the ProFill Beer Can filler deliver industry leading 30ppb (parts per billion) O2 pickup, tighter fill control, and automatic operation.

2

VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) Speed Control

Unlike single speed, or intermittent motion low end filling systems, the ProFill line utilizes true variable speed production technology to automate your packaging line and help you realize higher production efficiency and speed. ProFill speed control can be easily adjusted from the operator touch screen or can be integrated into the production line to deliver a fully automated solution.

3

Rotary Seaming Technology

Unlike inline, intermittent seaming systems the ProFill Can seamer is a true, continuous motion rotary seaming system. This delivers more consistent seaming performance, smoother can transfer, better fill control and reduced O2 pickup. In fact, integrated under-cover gassing virtually eliminates oxygen pickup.

4

Hardened Seaming Chucks and Rollers

The ProFill Can seaming system utilizes the best and more reliable can seaming tooling available. Chucks and Rollers are Titanium hardened sourced from Germany and offer an average life-cycle of over 40-million cans per head.

4

Integrated Height Adjustment

Container height changeover and adjustment is simple and can be accomplished in under 5-minutes with the ProFill Can filler and seamer height adjust. All filler control functions and operating cams (CO2 purge, counter-pressure, filling and snifting) can be locked and moved in sync with the entire system assuring repeatable setup parameters.

5

Variable Speed Control and Tangential Transfer

The monobloc ProFill can filler and seamer are mechanically synchronized for precise operation and control. The drive system is VFD controlled so the ProFill Beer Can filler can speed up and slow down to meet line demand. The integrated tangential can transfer delivers smoother can handling, higher-speeds, and reduced O2 pickup.

6

Electronic Filling Accuracy with Level and Pressure Control

The ProFill Beer Can filler utilizes state-of-the-art electronic filling bowl level and pressure control sensors. The sensors monitor beer level while the PLC control system maintains optimum filling control to deliver very precise can filling level control. Customers gain 1-3% yield improvement over inline, intermittent motion style can fillers that are based on time filling technology.
