Sustainable bottle filling from KHS
KHS will be exhibiting its intelligent beverage filling technologies at this year’s Brau Beviale trade show in Nuremberg.
The German systems supplier is helping the beverage industry move towards more efficient, more sustainable and increasingly digitised beverage production.
“The entire production process is becoming increasingly smarter. As a trusted and reliable partner to the beverage industry we’re applying our extensive experience and line expertise to cater for this development,” said Johannes T. Grobe, CSO of the Dortmund machine and systems manufacturer.
“At BrauBeviale we’re thus presenting intelligent technologies which will map out the direction KHS will take both now and in the future.”
On display will be its is new high performance glass filler with capacity of up to 80,000 bottles per hour. With it the turnkey supplier is advancing its aim of continuously reducing the amount of energy and resources consumed within the beverage industry. Among other features, the filler has a unique ECO system and special evacuation and CO2 purging process for glass bottles. With this the system uses up to 50% less CO2 compared to conventional methods. KHS has also cut energy consumption by a maximum of 20% thanks to its optimised vacuum pump.
“The protection of the environment is one of the determining issues of the moment. We thus offer our customers systems which specifically make their production lines sustainable and efficient,” said Grobe.
Sustainable in every respect
In the future, one of KHS’ prime concerns is to significantly reduce its carbon footprint and the company enables its customers to operate systems for as long as possible and keep them in line with the latest technical, economic and ecological developments. Its bottle washing machine optimisation program aims to successively lower the amount of water and energy the bottle washers use.
In this context the Dortmund engineering company provides various smart service packages from the capacity-dependent fresh water controller to weight-optimised bottle pocket carriers.
“We take a holistic view of our customers’ production and maintenance processes. With our extensive service program, including line optimisation measures to boost efficiency and throughput, together we find the best possible solution and in doing so also help protect the environment,” said Grobe.
