KHS Innofill DRS ECO variant glass filler

Thursday, 25 June, 2020 | Supplied by: KHS Pacific Pty Ltd

The KHS Innofill Glass DRS filler is efficient, environmentally friendly and gentle to products. The DRS ECO variant has reduced its energy consumption by up to 20% and reduced CO2 emissions by as much as 50%.

The glass bottle filler provides filling technology which meets the growing market requirements for flexible and efficient production processes. The system bottles beer, mixed beer beverages, cider and soft drinks. It can fill containers holding between 0.1 and 1.5 litres, processing up to 80,000 0.33 L bottles/h.

The glass filler also features a number of digitalisation and automation technologies, such as the DIAS diagnostic assistance system, which monitors the entire filling process. Pressure sensors are installed in every single filling valve, which continuously detect any deviations from target values or bottle breakages. The evacuation and CO2 purging processes are monitored for the lowest possible oxygen pickup. DIAS is also capable of recognising broken bottles in all filling phases and triggers the bottle burst routine automatically.

The SOFTSTOP bottle flowgate also provides product protection, as it interrupts the flow of bottles gently, even at maximum speed, for a homogenous filling process and constant foaming quality, while keeping oxygen at a low level.

A camera-controlled, high-pressure injection control system called OPTICAM enables monitoring and automatic regulation of the head of foam, reducing product loss by up to 50%. The fill level probe on the Innofill Glass DRS measures the fill level and monitors the CIP process. The bottle filler can also be fitted with automatic CIP taps that shorten changeover times and lower the amount of cleaning media used.

The hygienic QUICKLOCK locking system facilitates trouble-free format part changeovers, with bottle guide parts exchanged with a few manual adjustments performed without tools, reducing conversion times by up to 30% to 15–20 min.
