CARBONATION AND PREMIX CARBONATION SYSTEMS.

Automatic systems ranging from 2,000 – 60,000 Litres per Hour

Designed especially to handle

  • Alco Pops
  • Soft Drinks
  • Beers
  • Ciders
  • Water
  • Wine
  • Products with cells such as fruit juices, high juice carbonates.

MACHINE DESCRIPTION:

  • The Beer is delivered direct from the Bright Beer Tanks, to its own stainless steel and glass receiver vessel, which contains level management systems
  • The beer is then pumped from this vessel via the progressive cavity pump system. This ensures the continuous pressure and gentle handling of product
  • The product is then received in the Carbonating Pressure Vessel
  • This vessel contains its own level control system
  • Product temperature is closely monitored by its own controller which changes CO2 volumes according to the temperature change. This gives continuity of CO2 within the product
  • During carbonation, de-aeration is carried out, removing any air/oxygen contained in the beer
  • A variable speed over pressure pump is installed at the outlet of the machine, to give extra control with difficult beers when fobbing occurs during the filling process.
  • The over pressure pump can also be utilised for cleaning of the filling machine.
  • Normal operating temperature up to 8oC for beer / Cider ambient
  • Also available with mixed gas option- CO2 and Nitrogen.

MACHINE FEATURES:

  • Pressure Vessel manufactured in 304 or 316 stainless steel, machine welded and certified to current pressure vessel regulations
  • Pipe work and Fittings supplied in 316 stainless steel
  • All certification supplied with purchase of machine
  • Skid Frame supplied in 304 stainless steel
  • Progressive cavity pump being driven by stainless steel shaft giving very low maintenance
  • Stainless steel control panel containing switch gear
  • The machine is designed to be user friendly, with minimum maintenance
  • The open frame design allows easy cleaning and good access to pumps and fittings
  • All product contact parts are manufactured in food quality materials
  • Complete set of working instructions supplied with machine
  • Low filling pressures
  • Low power consumption

ENVIROMENT FRIENDLY SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Lower filling pressures
  • Lower power consumption – more cost effective
  • Lower CO2 pressures required result in
  • Less filling pressures required
  • Less CO2 wastage at snift
  • Less bottle fobbing
  • Fewer bottle explosions means:-
  • Less machine stoppages
  • and Product wastage
  • CO2 being used efficiently – more cost effective
  • Greater efficiency
