    Mineralbrunnen Krumbach – which belongs to Germany’s Karlsberg Group and is situated in the Allgäu region within Baden-Württemberg – is updating the wet end of an existing filling line for glass.

    The current dry end will remain in operation for now. Krones won the contract to convert the line and is installing the corresponding machines, which meet the most exacting standards for filling and labeling technology.

    Project: Update a glass line
    Client: Mineralbrunnen Krumbach GmbH
    Location: Kißlegg, Germany
    Commissioning: November 2021
    Scope: The line, rated at 40,000 bottles per hour, fills mineral water and CSDs into six different glass bottle formats ranging from 0.25 to 1.0 liters.

     

    Special features

    With the Modulfill HES filler, Mineralbrunnen Krumbach is able to meet the most exacting hygiene standards for filling returnable glass bottles. The filler features oil-free lift cylinders, automatic CIP cups, and automatic probe adjustment. Infeed and discharge are both fitted with drip edges to drain the spray-cleaning water in a targeted manner.

    Furthermore, innovative control technology makes it possible to assign filling valves to specific capper heads. That supports our latest bottle-burst safety system, which prevents any glass fragments from being carried over into the finished product. If a bottle bursts, the broken bottle and its two neighboring bottles are rejected and the associated filling valves are immediately flushed with a powerful stream of water. Mineralbrunnen Krumbach’s quality assurance team can decide and program exactly how the flushing and removal is to be done. 

    The screw capper is additionally equipped with a cleaning unit – an ionizing extraction system that removes dust from the caps. Finally, a Checkmat inspector checks fill level and proper cap position.
