At drinktec, the CFT Group introduced its complete turnkey line for the brewing industry that supports processing, filling, seaming and end-of-line operations. The new solution was made possible by partnerships with German processing machines manufacturer Rolec and Italian manufacturer SBC Bottling & Canning, the company says. From malt handling and milling through the filling phase, Lauter Tun Technology includes complete mashing systems, a wort boiling system, a hop dosing system and a process control system designed to handle production volumes from 20 to 500 hectoliters. Other benefits include production flexibility to handle a wide range of beer styles, the ability to adapt to already existing systems, and cost-efficient and time-savings technology for specialty beers. The company also highlighted its Master C Tech, a high-performance filler for aluminum and steel cans. Designed for high filling accuracy, the upgraded solution features a compact footprint, easy maintenance, a hygienic and sanitary design, an external valve washing system, and brushless drive units. The customizable filler, which features between 36 and 108 valves, works with a state-of-the-art, fully electronic oil-lubricated 3000 series seamer; can reach speeds from 24,000 to 90,000 cans an hour; and can handle product sizes from 200 ml to 1 liter. It also showcased a new filling machine for kegs, the Master Keg, featuring four gripping heads, two filling valves and an enhanced rinsing water recovery system that saves 60 percent more water than traditional machines, it says. The filler speed can process between 18 and 240 kegs an hour, and handles a product volume from 15- to 50-liter kegs. CFT Group
