This module is capable of filling between 82 to 120 casks per hour, and includes an automatic shive press.

How does it work?

  1. The cask is manually loaded and aligned.

  2. Pressing the two buttons will then start the automated process. Once the cask is raised to seal against the fixed filling head, the automated recipe-driven metered filling sequence commences.

  3. Finings are automatically metered into the recipe during the beers mid-flow.

  4. When the metered beer flow is complete, the filling head tube is withdrawn, allowing the operator to activate the cask lifter.

  5. The cask lowers to clear the head for shive insertion.

  6. The final lift lowers and discharges the full cask to rolling rails.
