    Arrow Alpha Brewing Operations - 24 cpm, 35 cpm and 70cpm options all on the same frame

    Alpha Brewing Operations - 24 cpm, 35 cpm and 70 cpm options all on the same frame - upgrading can be done in the field - start with an 24cpm if the budget is tight - end up with a 70cpm system down the road.

    Alpha Brewing Operations - the small details

    ALPHA BEER CANNON
    An Arsenal Of Beverage Canning Solutions

    EXPANDABLE 24 TO 36 TO 72 Cans Per Min


    Filler
    Dual Lane Design
    o Alpha’s unique dual lane design provides incredibly low dissolved oxygen levels, smaller footprint and expandability and redundancy.
    Double Barrel Filler
    o The Double barrel fill nozzle feature places two fill tubes into each can. This allows faster filling with less space, less energy and fewer moving parts.
    SmartFill Servo
    o The vertical motion of the filler is controlled by servo motor. Precision, programmable movement means size change with the push of a button, good foam control, no compressed air, low energy, and no maintenance.

    Lid Applicator
    o The dual lane lid applicator provides easy, 4 bolt size change and fine position adjustment on two axis. Alpha’s unique spring tension lid release bar eliminates the bouncing rollers of yesteryear.

    Lid Magazine “The Revolver” (Patent Pending)
    o The Revolver, high capacity lid magazine leaves all others wanting. When the two active chambers empty, simply twist the magazine 90 degrees and open the slide gates to release lids. When empty, simply lift and replace with the 2nd magazine (included).

    Load Cell Can Weigh Station (Patent Pending)
    o The check weigh station on the Beer Cannon weighs each can prior to seaming. Operator chooses to seam, or not seam any low fills detected. Low fills are rejected automatically. Load cell also allows prevention of over fill to maximize profit!

    Seamer/Indexer
    o Seam operation 1 and 2 are controlled by a cam driven by servo motor making precise seam adjustments within a thousandth of an inch possible at the push of a button.
    o Our indexer wheel is also servo driven and provides fast, yet smooth can transition to the load cell, the seamer and back onto the conveyor.
    o The automatic reject arm after the seamer removes low fills, or cans missing lids. This feature reduces loss and prevents substandard product from hitting the shelf.

    Rinse/Dry Station w/ 2nd Conveyer
    o Alpha employs burst rinse and dry technology to wash and dry only the cans and not the space between them helping the Beer Cannon to be perhaps the most energy efficient canning line of its kind.

    Testimonial-

    “I can happily recommend the Alpha line. We have used the Alpha line for 10 months. Our’s is set up for 16oz cans and we run 32 cpm at 2.8 volumes of CO2 and our total DO levels always in the teens. We never see missed lids unless operator error, or a bad lid. The can weighing feature is nice, but we rarely see low fills, even during startup. Alpha has incredible customer service and any time I need something I can get someone on the phone. I found the price point and Alpha’s flexibility to be outstanding. Feel free to call me if you want to talk with a customer.”

    Alpha Brewing Operations - reject station

    Alpha's design team thought of everything on this beautiful canning line - any can coming through the seamer that does not meet the spec's of the sensor will head into the reject station for examination. Really works well - cheers!

    Alpha Brewing Operations - new canning line was a hit at CBC

    Wow, what a week we had last week at the annual Craft Brewers Conference in Washington, DC. The traffic through our booth was amazing – the brewhouse, canning line and mill certainly showed what we can do and how we do it the “Alpha way”.

    The release of our new canning line was the talk of the show – our new design of a “load cell” which weighs each can before it gets seamed had everyone’s attention and changed many buyer’s minds. We’ll be coming out with a new web site within the next week or so and all details/video’s will be listed for your viewing pleasure.

    Contact us directly with questions – www.alphabrewops.com – Cheers!

    Alpha Brewing Operations - simple tricks to keep DO levels low

    As big of a hit as the new canning line was at CBC last week - it's still a really simple design and makes it so attractive. Once the lids are picked they are forced onto the cans by a Plexiglas shield - they can't move until they get weighed and seamed - thus lowering the DO levels - simple indeed. We have ordered 10 canning lines to be built - 5 sold today and we expect the others to go by weeks end - Cheers!

    Alpha Brewing Operations - dual lid pic

    Alpha's dual lid pic applies the lids twice as fast as any in-line system, thus, reducing the amount of O2 pickup - simple things - also notice the 4 column lid organizer - never run out of lids during a run - Cheers!

    Alpha Brewing Operations - load cell for weighing cans

    Alpha's new canning lines have a feature you don't see on other canning lines - a "LOAD CELL" to weigh each can as it comes into the seamer - the retail outlets are starting to demand that each can be weighed before it goes on their selves. These canning lines do that - actually weigh the can 20 times per second - pretty amazing - Cheers!

    Patent Pending on Load Cell

    Alpha Brewing Operations - new seal to help consumers identify independent breweries

    The Brewers Association has made a new seal designed to help consumers identify independent breweries. The seal is available for use free of charge by any of the more than 5,300 small and independent American craft brewers that have a valid TTB Brewer’s Notice, meet the BA’s craft brewer definition, and sign a license agreement. It is available to both member and non-member breweries of the BA.
