Question: How do they put pop/beer into cans!?
and seal them!? be specificif you know!.!.!.!.do they put pop in first the seal it !? do they pour it through the tab!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

The cans all come down the conveyor without tops, just bottoms!. This is why you can see that the bottom of a can up to the top where the tab is, is one piece!. There is a machine called a "Can Seamer" that puts the top on!.

The cans are first inverted and rinsed to get any foreign objects, dust, etc out of them!. Then, they go to the Can Filler!. First the oxygen is evacuated from the can and a small Carbon Dioxide mixture is put in there!. This is because when you pour any carbonated beverage fast (soda or beer), it foams!. The CO2 allows the Can Filler to really shoot the liquid in there fast and no foaming occurs!.

The can is filled, seamed and then it goes to the "Case Packer", then on to the "Palletizer" and hopefully, within a day or so, in your corner store for you to buy it!

Can fillers range from 100 cans per minute to the really fast ones, like at Bud, Coke, Pepsi, etc that can fill up to 2000 cans per minut!. Yes, PER MINUTE!.Www@FoodAQ@Com


Cans are filled before the top is crimped on!. The key engineering issue is that can walls are about 90 micrometers thick, so empty cans are light, weak, and easy to damage!. The filling and sealing operations need to be extremely fast and precise!. The filling head centers the can using gas pressure, purges the air, and lets the beverage flow down the sides of the can!. The lid is placed on the can, then crimped in two operations!. A seaming head engages the lid from above while a seaming roller to the side curls the edge of the lid around the edge of the can body!. The head and roller spin the can in a complete circle to seal all the way around!. Then a pressure roller with a different profile drives the two edges together under pressure to make a gas-tight seal!. Filled cans usually have pressurized gas inside, which makes them stiff enough for easy handling!.
