CB100C Rotary Counter-Pressure Canning Line

The CB100C rotary counter-pressure canning system builds upon the capabilities of the CB50C counter-pressure canning line.  The CB100C leverages a 12-head rotary filling turret design, coupled with a dual-station seamer, to allow you to increase your throughput to more than 100 cans per minute. Using a motorized, recipe-driven turret design allows for automatic turret height adjustment.

Like the CB50C, the CB100C uses true isobarometric filling, with an on-board product supply tank rated to 60 psi.  The addition of the 12-head rotary filling turret enables the system to move more cans smoothly through the line, filling faster without creating any increase in product agitation as speeds increase.  This gentle fill virtually eliminates the unwanted reductions in carbonation levels seen with other filling methods.

Like our other canning systems, the CB100C also employs magnetic flowmeter technology to help you get a perfect fill with little waste, and an under-cover gas flush system to keep dissolved oxygen levels low.  In addition, our industry-leading Angelus double-seam technology keeps cans sealed tight, extending critical shelf life.

The CB100C system is optimized for sleek and standard can bodies, and is designed with quick-change adjustments for easy changeovers accommodating various can heights and body diameters with no valve change required. A compact footprint and an intuitive HMI for individual fill-head volume adjustments simplify operation.
