    Alpha Brewing Operations - Stonecloud Brewing Company in OK City

    Alpha commissioned another canning line at Stonecloud Brewing Company in Oklahoma City, OK, the past couple days. This new Alpha canning line is awesome – weighs each can for low fills – low “DO” levels – built like a tank for mobile canners.

    Special thanks go out to Joel Irby, Founder and Brewmaster at Stonecloud. Joel purchased a 30bbl brewhouse from Alpha and now followed it up with a 35cpm canning line.

    Alpha Brewing Operations – canning lines that weigh each can

    From one of your customers - Weedy Weidenthal, Brewmaster Tombstone Brewing Company

    I can happily recommend the Alpha line. I'm the Brewmaster at Tombstone Brewing Company and have used the Alpha line since August. Our's is set up for sixteen-ounce cans and we run 32 CPM with a typical carbonation volume of 2.8 volumes and DO levels in the mid-teens. The highest DO we've seen was 34 ppb and that was on one can right at start up. The rest of the time, we are between 13-17 ppb and have seen as low as 9 ppb on a few cans. We have successfully canned at 2.9 volumes of co2, although Alpha does not recommend going above 2.7... We had no issues with those beers at the elevated levels. We typically run 375 cases on a canning day with only a couple cans being problematic out of that total. Last canning run, I did 127 cases of pils and had one can that was pulled aside due to a seaming issue that I believe was on a misshapen can to begin with. We never see missed lids unless there is an operator error. After the first ten minutes of running, it is pretty much hands off for the operator and results in an incredibly laid-back day. It took us maybe 5 batches before I felt really comfortable with everything and was able to get those performance numbers. Before that, we saw about 2 cases of waste for every 120 cases of good fills. Alpha has incredible customer service and any time I need something, I can get someone on the phone. Inline weighing is a nice feature, but we never have low fills even on the first cases since we just manually overflow the first four cans. Once the beer is below forty degrees at the filler I stop the overflow, press run, and it goes off without a hitch. I then spend about ten minutes monitoring my pressures, testing DO, and adjusting the fill levels to be capping on foam and not filling higher than our target weight. From that point on, it's just a matter of changing out the lid magazine as needed. We found the price point and Alpha's flexibility to work with us to be amazing. Feel free to call me if you have specific questions and want to ask a customer rather than a rep. My number is 256-479-7610

    Alpha Brewing Operations - the small details

    ALPHA BEER CANNON - An Arsenal Of Beverage Canning Solutions

    EXPANDABLE 24 TO 36 TO 72 Cans Per Min in the field


    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.”
