Washer/filler for kegs

The machines have similar features: automatic, compact and equipped with heads of treatment (washing and filling) and intermediate stop stations, according to the model. The modular structure allows it to be placed side by side in order to increase the yield of the plant.

The washing and the filling heads are made of stainless steel AISI 304L (AISI 316L in case of washing with acid solution), internal roughness <0.6 μ, EPDM, PTFE shutter valves and magnetic sensors to control the opening of the fitting.


The fill mode can be controlled by conductivity sensor or through the flowmeter.


In the automatic models a mechanical arm enters in the machine the kegs that are to be treated, moving them by a pneumatic translation system, fitted with sensors that allow the control of the working cycle. 

 

In semi-automatic systems the operator loads and moves manually the kegs.


The cabinet is made of stainless steel (IP54), with PLC and software for the check of the production cycles; the control pushbutton panel, made of stainless steel (IP54), is provided with operator panel for the control and setting of the operating parameters.


The system is supplied with automatic sanitizing and must be equipped with transport systems of input and output and with the reservoirs of washing solutions, supplied on request.
