Sidel's (sidel.com) new EvoFILL Can offers top hygiene, plenty of features and consistent performance and sustainability.
EvoFILL Can’s no-base design is accessible for easy cleaning and no residual of product in the filling environment. The solution’s improved CO2 pre-flushing system results in utmost food safety, as there is no residue and a cleaner zone.
With a single or double can infeed available, EvoFILL Can allows for a flexible upstream line configuration. With the solution operating at high speeds of over 130,000 cans per hour (cph), the double infeed allows for the best can quality as containers suffer less stress and no damages. Sidel has developed a new drive system, enabled by servomotors. It requires no mechanical transmission between the filler and the seamer, thus eliminating any need for lubrication and any moving parts in the filling area.
EvoFILL Can has an external beverage tank and integrated small chamber. This concept ensures a better and more effective cleaning of all parts that come in contact with the beverage. Plus, the chamber is completely full and accommodates the product only, making the cleaning easier and reducing costs of maintenance. On top of this, the external tank acts as an enabler for the Sidel BlendFILL configuration, the compact solution which combines the mixer and the filling buffer tank in one single skid.
With an efficiency of 98.5 percent, the new EvoFILL Can significantly reduces TCO: the solution has filling accuracy of 1ml standard deviation (≤ 500ml cans). Additionally, with an increased lifetime of 12,000 hours before replacement, the main components of the filling valves significantly reduce downtime for maintenance and relative costs.
