PSA introduces new canning technology for brewers

Continuing its reputation as a leader in canning technology, Pneumatic Scale Angelus (PSA), a leader in canning technology, has introduced the CB244, the newest member of its craft brew canning line portfolio.

While the CB50/CB100 lines achieve a variable speed range of filling and seaming 15 to 100 cans per minute, the new CB244 line uses 24 filling valves and four seaming heads to reach speeds of up to 215 cans per minute. The CB244 is a precision machine, with electro-pneumatically controlled filling valves that ensure fill level accuracy to within +/- 0.5 grams of target volume. The gas flush system and pressurized filling result in extremely low oxygen pickup, which means longer shelf life for the final product. 

Built for both speed and flexibility, the CB244 allows changes in lid diameter with no change to the filling valves, and changes for can height or diameter can be made in just minutes, using multiple recipes saved in the PLC. Collocation of product and CO2 supply connections aids in installation, and the full stainless steel design means easier machine maintenance.
