The CIP system for the cleaning, sanitizing of the stainless steel kegs and for the filling of carbonated beverages into the kegs

… with two tanks for different sanitizing chemical solutions

The KCM-10D is a multifunction machine that includes a device for rinsing of stainless steel kegs and the filling of carbonizated beverages like beer, lemonade wine or cider, into kegs. The equipment is designed for the filling and rinsing of kegs with beer, cider, wine and for other beverages, using manually operated valves and a pump.

Operating capacity : seven – ten kegs per hour (rinsing and sanitizing cycles / filling cycle).

In comparation with the KCM-10 machine the KCM-10D machine includes two tanks and two pumps to sanitation of kegs using both alcalic and acidic sanitizing chemical solutions.

The machine is designed for cleaning and filling kegs with a volume from 15 to 50 liters. The working performance is :

  • Two cycles : the rinsing cycle & the sanitation cycle : the maximal performance 10 kegs per hour ( with volume of 50 liters).
  • Three cycles : the rinsing cycle & the sanitation cycle & the filling cycle : the maximal performance 7 kegs per hour ( with volume of 50 liters).

The actual capacity of the machine depends on how dirty the kegs are and how long time it has been since they were used. For more dirty kegs, it is necessary to set longer times for individual washing cycles and this reduces the capacity in the number of kegs per hour. If the drink foams more, the time required to fill the kegs also increases (in this case, we recommend lowering the temperature of the drink in the source tank).

Inserting of kegs is manual, removing of kegs after finalizing of filling cycle is manual. Operator manually opens and closes all valves, switches on the pump and controls a temperature of the sanitizing solution manually as well. The machine is equipped with an integrated reservoir for the alcalic sanitizing solution.

Sterilized compressed air is needed for flushing inner space of the keg, which can contain of the rest of water or sanitizing solutions.
We recomment to use an external hot steam-generator as optional accessories to ensuring perfect sterilization of the inner walls of the kegs and shorter cleaning and sanitation cycle.

Material is stainless steel AISI 304.

 

The device operates in the following cycles:

  1. An emptying the keg
  2. A depressurization the keg
  3. Flushing the keg with cold water
  4. Flushing the keg with alcalic sanitizing solution
  5. Flushing the keg with hot water
  6. Flushing the keg with acid sanitizing solution
  7. Flushing the keg with hot water
  8. Steam sterilization of inside of the keg – it requires an external source of steam
  9. Filling the keg with carbon dioxide gas
  10. Filling the keg with beer

All cycles 1-10 run with manual control.

Description of the keg rinsing and filling process step by step:

Manual keg washer - rinser - filler KCM-10
1. All valves are closed
2. Connect the filling coupler on the keg
3. Overturn the keg and place it on the KCM-10D unit
4. Open valve 1.8 (waste) and valve 1.2 (air). The rest of content in the keg is drained.
5. Valve 1.8 (waste) remains opened, close valve 1.2 (air) and open valve 1.4 (cold water).
That is the first rinse of the keg. Time of rinse will vary depending on total volume and degree of pollution of the keg.
6. Close valve 1.4 (cold water), valve 1.8 (waste) remains open.
7. Valve 1.8 (waste) remains open, open valve 1.2 (air). Water is forced out of the keg by air. Time may vary depending on the total volume of keg.
8. Close all valves. Open valve 1.7 (caustic), turn on the pump. The caustic sanitation of keg is in progress. Time may vary depending on the total volume of keg. The valve 1.2 (air) may be opened to improve the scattering of sanitation solution.
9. Turn off the pump and open valve 1.2 (air). Cycle of returning the caustic to caustic tank runs.
10. Close all valves.
11. Open valve 1.8 (waste), open valve 1.3 (hot water). Rinse until the keg is completely deprived of caustic (usage of pH meter is recomended). The valve 1.2 (air) may be opened to improve the scattering of hot water.
12. Close valve 1.3 (hot water), valve 1.8 (waste) remains open, open valve 1.2 (air). Hot water is forced out of the keg by air. Time may vary depending on the total volume of keg.
13. Close all valves. Open valve 1.1 (CO2) and open valve 1.8 (waste). Air is forced out of the keg by CO2 gas. Time may vary depending on the total volume of keg.
14. Close valve 1.8 (waste), valve 1.1 (CO2) remains open. Fill the keg with CO2 until the inner pressure is 1.8 bar. The inner pressure is controlled by pressure regulator.
15. Close all valves.
16. Put the keg on the floor, open valve 1.6 (beer) and open valve 1.9 (outlet of CO2 from keg). Keg is being filled by beer, filling speed is controlled by pressure regulator. When he beer foam starts flowing from pressure regulator, the keg is full.
17. Keg is sanitized now, filled with beer and ready to be shipped to your customer.

Filling of the 50L beer keg takes from 1 to 4 minutes – the time depends on the chosen overpressure in the keg and in the beer storage tank, temperature of beer, beer type and other physic influences.
