    Multipurpose filler for bottles and cans

    You need to accept cookies to use this functionality.

    New from the House of Krones: For the first time, the Krones Group presents a multipurpose filler that handles both bottles and cans – the Barifill Canto. Our Italian subsidiary Kosme is responsible for its development, construction, and installation. Kosme wanted to be able to offer smaller craft breweries and wineries the greatest possible flexibility in container choice – glass bottles, cans, or both – without requiring them to invest in two different filling machines.

    A single filling valve for glass bottles and cans

    The heart of the Barifill Canto is an innovative filling valve. Kosme has taken the best features of existing Modulfill series filling systems and combined them into a single valve. The valve is equipped with a level probe for filling glass bottles and PET containers and a volumetric system with an inductive flow meter for cans. The combination of the two systems in a single filling valve makes for enormous time savings when switching between container types. The new valve can be automatically adjusted to a new fill level or volume when switching between cans and bottles or different container sizes. As an option, a rinser that likewise accommodates both cans and bottles and various container sizes without any manual adjustments can be integrated directly upstream of the infeed into the Barifill Canto.

    The Barifill Canto fills both bottles and cans with a single, multipurpose filling valve.

    Simple operation, minimal maintenance

    The necessary container sealer(s) are integrated into the filler. Glass bottles are transferred directly into a Kosme crowner. As an option, plastic screw caps for PET and roll-on aluminum caps or corks can be handled as well. For cans, the Krones Modulseam seamer delivers outstanding hygiene, fast changeovers, and ease of operation. An integrated closed-loop oil lubrication system significantly reduces maintenance requirements. 

    The Barifill Canto operates on the principle that “less is more”: All of the component parts are controlled from a central panel, reducing operator intervention to a minimum. Another advantage is the Barifill Canto’s hygienic design: All parts that come into contact with the product are made of stainless steel, enabling reliable cleaning and ensuring their longevity. In addition, sloped surfaces below the filler and crowner/seamer allow liquids to run off quickly and cleanly.

    Container types


    • 0.15 to 0.66 liters
    • For beer, CSDs, and sparkling water and wines


    • Bordeaux or Burgundy wine bottles (0.2 to 1.5 liters)
    • Long-neck beer bottles (0.25 to 0.75 liters), also suitable for CSDs
    • PET containers

    Up to 16,000 containers per hour

    Barifill Canto is perfectly suited for small producers who want the greatest possible flexibility for their operations. It does beer, CSDs, sparkling water, and sparkling wines in a variety of can types and sizes, and also handles PET containers or glass bottles – the latter in both the classic wine bottle format and the long-neck bottle used for beer and CSDs. Filling temperatures range from 2 to 16 degrees Celsius for cans or bottles alike. Filling speeds depend on the product and individual configuration and range from 1,200 glass bottles or 2,500 cans per hour on the smallest layout to 9,500 glass bottles or 16,000 cans per hour on the biggest setup.*

    * Example: Sparkling wine in 0.33-liter cans or 0.75-liter glass bottles, filling temperature: 0 - 4 degrees Celsius, CO2: 9 g/l, sugar: 20 g/l

    Barifill Canto is the first multipurpose filler for glass bottles, PET containers, and cans – not only from Kosme but within the entire House of Krones.
