KHS Group will be presenting a range of machinery for small and medium-sized breweries at a craft brewers' conference in the US.

BrewExpo America, which is staged as part of the Craft Brewers Conference, will give visitors the chance to see the system supplier’s high-performance plant equipment.

The trade show focus will be on the Innofill Can C, a compact volumetric can filler which outputs 10,000 to 40,000 cans per hour. KHS will be exhibiting from 1-3 May.

KHS USA has provided brewers with systems tailored to their specific requirements since the start of the craft beer movement. Its CombiKeg R5 processes kegs with a volume of between seven and 58 litres – from internal and external washing through filling to conveying and on-board media tanks. It is therefore not just suitable for beer, but also for soft drinks and wine.

For breweries which require a compact, semi-automatic system, keg washing and filling technology is available in the form of the Innokeg AF1-C1 which outputs up to 35 returnable and non-returnable kegs every 60 minutes.

Can filler for craft brewers

The filling and packaging technology specialist will also be exhibiting its Innofill Can C at the upcoming trade show. This produces between 10,000 and 40,000 volumetrically filled cans an hour. The compact combination of filler and seamer is manufactured as a plug-and-produce system at the local KHS factory and can thus be commissioned without the need for elaborate installation.
