LinCan Canning Line from ABE Beverage Equipment

The LinCan™ canning line was designed and manufactured by ABE Beverage Equipment originally for, and as a result of, close collaboration with craft brewers. It is also suitable for cider, wine, cocktails, kombucha, coldbrew and various other drinks.

The LinCan canning line is fully automatic and has been designed for:

  • Maximum efficiency
  • Seamer monitoring to ensure optimum quality, shelf stability and reduce product loss
  • Ease of use
  • Durability
  • Low dissolved oxygen pickup

The LinCan is available in capacities of up to 2100 (option for upgrade) and 3900 cans per hour (cph). See below for the main features of The LinCan, a video of the The LinCan in action and our case studies. With installation and commissioning by our team of engineers, and training given to you and your staff, we are able to provide you with full technical support.

Manufactured in the USA, safety guarded & CE marked by Vigo Ltd

Application

Here are some of the reasons why craft breweries are moving 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 the LinCan includes:

  • Filling head process:
    • Oxygen purge
    • Fill
    • CO2 micro-burst for reducing dissolved oxygen pickup
  • Lid applicator gasses to reduce oxygen pickup
  • Secure lid-tamping and seaming process, which includes seamer monitoring (see features)
  • Can rinsing and drying
