Here are some of the reasons why craft breweries move to cans:

  • They help protect beer from light and oxygen
  • They retain fresh hop flavours
  • Modern cans are lined with a polymer lining so that the beer doesn't touch any metal

Cans also have other shared benefits for a wide range of beverages:

  • They are highly portable
  • They are welcome in places where bottles are not
  • They can be crushed down when empty and are easily recyclable
  • Compared to bottles, they are space-saving, lighter and they won't smash
  • The unit cost of a can is cheaper than that of a bottle, label and cap

The canning process using CIMEC Rotary Canning Lines include:

  • Filling head process via counter pressure filling with IPS filling valves:
    • Can pressurised with inert gas to equal the pressure of the product
    • Pressure relieved in controlled manner to allow the liquid to displace the gas, and to maintain pressure on the liquid to keep dissolved gases in a dissolved state within the liquid solution and to avoid the CO2 escaping
    • Filling
    • Can depressurised
    • Inert gas in tunnel prevents air from coming into contact with the product and acts as a foam breaker avoiding oxidiation
  • Lid applicator gasses to reduce oxygen pickup
  • Secure lid-tamping and seaming process via 1 or 2 seamers depending on the model



CIMEC's Rotary Canning Line is produced using the most advanced technologies, guaranteeing reliability and precision for the user, and using simple and intuitive logic.

  • Suitable for still or sparkling products, including wine, cider, soft drinks, health drinks, beer, water, and coffee
