Medium-speed mechanical filler for high performance and quality beverage filling applications.
TOP 3 BENEFITS:
Starcans MS embodies Gebo’s many years of experience in beverage can filling. It was developed with product versatility in mind. Based on proven technology, this machine fills a wide variety of products: beer, carbonated beverages, fruit juices, sports drinks and teas.
Starcans MS is a low- to medium-speed solution that offers high performance and top-quality filling, along with user-friendly operation and reduced maintenance requirements, as well as easy access for interventions. Its construction is mechanical, making the Starcans MS both simple and reliable.
It is a very flexible machine: it is designed to be interfaced with various brands and models of seamers. It can handle a wide range of products (including sensitive products) in all can formats, and can be equipped with product recovery and recirculation for hot filling. In this hot fill configuration, the recirculation system ensures constant product temperature, even during downtime.
Starcans MS virtually eliminates can damage. Cans are placed on a platform and centered pneumatically. As a result, pressure on the containers is always controlled. Filling quality is ensured with a separate CO2 chamber to pre-flush cans. Product level control in the central product tank has been simplified and is now achieved with a single electronic level probe.
The quality of filling is guaranteed by pre-flushing cans through a separate chamber and with independent pressure adjustment. In this way there is almost absolutely no air inside the can during filling. Once pressure equilibrium between tank and can is reached, the valve opens automatically. Product flows into the can until it reaches the vent tubes. Then the filling valve closes and the decompression process begins.
To ensure product quality, it is crucial to minimize oxygen during filling.
To achieve this:
During hot filling (fruit juices, sports drinks and teas, etc.) a recirculation system guarantees constant temperature in all conditions. Product is recollected in a special dedicated tank and recirculated into the processing system.
The filler has been designed to be cleaned and sanitized in a closed loop using false cans assembled to the filling valves. All internal areas in contact with the product are sanitized during the CIP.
