Tsingtao's headquarters: packaging five litre Augerta

Installs a 400 can per hour turnkey KHS line

Tsingtao is investing to meet increasing demand in its home market for multi-litre party kegs. The Chinese brewing group last week took delivery of a KHS supplied turnkey filling line for these ‘big cans’.

The fully automatic line is rated at up to 400 cans per hour, using a KHS Innokeg Multibloc F. (By making use of up to seven independent operating stations, this filler can have a capacity of up to 700 containers per hour.)

Tsingtao plans to use the line to fill premium Augerta beer into five-litre cans with and without CO2 cartridges. In future the line will be used to fill three-litre kegs as well. 

Party cans in China are already big business, and are popular in both the on- and off-trade. KHS places their share at around 18% of the Chinese market, both for private consumption as well as in some restaurants where guests can order them for their table.
