Quinti Beer Bottling Machine

The Quinti “JACK TO4” is a counter-pressure bottling machine specifically designed for the craft and micro-brewery market. It is ideal for customers who are considering bringing their bottling function in-house for the first time. Its low cost/low maintenance design ensures that the JACK TO4 is affordable to buy and run.

The JACK TO4 is ideally suited for the Craft Beer market benefiting from many design features including its stylish design, modular construction, low noise operation and self-timing puck-based throughput conveyor.

The counter-pressure filling system is a four-stage process consisting of:

- Pre-evacuation, the air in the bottle is partially removed via inbuilt vacuum system
- Inert gas injection, the bottle is filled with an inert gas, usually CO2 or Nitrogen
- The bottle is then filled with beer at a rate which displaces the inert gas
- The carbonation within the beer is retained & foaming/fobbing is prevented.
- Final step is equalisation of the pressure inside the bottle with atmospheric pressure
- Above
ensures that no fobbing takes place as the filling valve is withdrawn
