INTERVITIS: KHS presents portfolio for wine and sparkling wine bottlers
Modern systems for large wine cellars and cooperatives / Systems and service covering the entire process chain / Focus on individual consulting at the trade show exhibit
"KHS GmbH offers wine and sparkling wine bottlers the right system for every sector," says Ferdinand Schmitt, who is responsible for wine, sparkling wine, and spirits system sales in Germany. This system provider is a competent partner not only for packaging systems, but also for the entire processing range. Whether filtration, flash pasteurizing, carbonating, or sanitizing, KHS offers all products and services ranging from consultation to after-sales service.
Visitors to the trade show can expect, among other things, a video presentation of the flexible Innofill Glass DNRT filler, a machine that enables particularly hygienic filling of up to 75,000 bottles per hour coupled with low CO2 consumption. The smaller sister model, the Innofill Glass DNRT LC, offers the same standard but with adapted capacities of up to 10,000 bottles per hour. KHS has improved its Innofill Glass DNRT series by including numerous new features and options such as the CIP rinsing sleeves of the larger machine series that can be retracted and extended automatically. Shorter changeover times and thus higher machine availability are possible when adjustable format parts or clamping stars are used.
High-tech for wine and sparkling wine
The Innopro Corvus cartridge filter system is yet another focus of the trade show. With this filter, KHS provides excellent prerequisites for hygienic filling of beverages. The many individual configuration and expansion options offered by this system enable it to be universally implemented. The Innopro Corvus provides various filtration processes immediately before the actual filling process.
Further trade show topics demonstrate KHS' portfolio for the entire process chain. Visitors will receive information on other offerings including an ultra-clean block for glass, various closers, options for the bottling of wine beverages in cans, and wrap-around packaging which is also available for the medium-capacity range. A new packer will also be featured that KHS has optimized specifically for the capacity range of between 10,000 and 20,000 bottles per hour.
"The focus at our booth is also on person-to-person discussion," emphasizes Schmitt. KHS develops customized systems together with its customers. Product quality and product safety are top priority for modern filling systems and line concepts. For only "hygienic and gentle processes ranging from carbonation through filtration to bottling that meet modern requirements enable users to achieve optimum results," Schmitt adds.
