Installing more than 16,000 can seamers in 132 countries says something about a company. For Pneumatic Scale Angelus (PSA) — part of the BW Packaging Solutions portfolio of companies — it’s just another example of why they are a world leader in canning technology for the beer and beverage industry. Go see the company this week in booth 3508 at this year’s Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America in D.C.
For more than 130 years, when it comes to packaging solutions for breweries — palletizing, de-palletizing, conveyers, seamers, fillers, labeling, cartoners and so much more throughout the line — Barry-Wehmiller (BW) has been an industry leader. And four of the twelve companies under its BW Packaging Solutions banner — Accraply, BW Container Systems, Pneumatic Scale Angelus and Thiele Technologies — are also uniquely positioned to provide a wide breadth of knowledge, technology and service for the beer industry.
In booth 3508 at this year’s Craft Brewers Conference, attendees will see an example of PSA technology especially suited to the craft brewing industry as they unveil their Integrated CB50 Filler and Seamer. At last year’s Craft Brewers Conference, PSA displayed the CB50 Can Seamer, based off their well-established high speed seamer design for larger scale operations. However, the CB50 is specifically designed for the craft brewing industry with a smaller footprint on the brewery floor and a more economical price point.
This year, conference attendees will also get to see the CB50 Filler, also specifically designed with the craft brewery in mind. It is a six-head inline filler that will seamlessly integrate with the CB50 single head can seamer, rated for the same continuous operation speeds up to 50 cans per minute. The integrated system is optimized for beverage can height range of 2.13 to 8 inches and designed with quick-change adjustments for easy changeover for various can height/body diameters.
The CB50 Seamer can also be paired with any carbonated beverage filler of the customer’s choice. Other filling and seaming systems can be retrofitted with the CB50 Seamer.
