Working principle of beer filling machine

In the production process of craft beer, the workshop of beer equipment is required to be clean and hygienic, and some workshops also require aseptic conditions. The canning equipment of craft beer must be cleaned continuously to ensure the sanitation of the process. What is the working principle of the filling machine in the beer equipment?

The filling machine used in the beer equipment factory is generally a rotary filling machine. According to the size of the production capacity, there are mostly 100-200 filling valves. Bottles are fed into the filling machine by the bottle infeed conveyor belt. The bottles are separated at a certain distance by the bottle-feeding screw (fixed-distance separation mechanism), and enter the bottle tray which can be moved up and down through the bottle-feeding star wheel, so that the bottles are positioned under the filling valve and the filling operation is completed.

The operation process of the filling machine is: the bottle is pushed up and positioned on the filling valve, after one or two times of vacuuming, back pressure operation, equal pressure filling, liquid level correction, pressure relief, and finally the bottle is released with the bottle tray Lowered and sent out of the filling machine.

Among these steps, the most important and time-consuming step is the beer filling process, which accounts for about half of the entire process. Since the wine filling time cannot be shortened arbitrarily, in order to increase the production capacity of the machine, the only way to increase the number of filling valves is to increase the rotation diameter of the machine. The diameter of the small filling “turntable” is only 1.4m, while that of a large filling machine can reach more than 5m. The production capacity of filling machines with large diameters is generally higher, and the capacity of modern large-scale filling machines can be as high as 40,000 to 60,000 bottles per hour.

In actual production, the filling machine and the capping machine are used together because the beer must be capped immediately after filling to prevent the beer from contacting oxygen and losing carbon dioxide.
