In recent years, the American beer palette has changed from one focused primarily on the simple flavors of large, mainstream breweries to include a more complex, artisanal palette. This is evidenced by the huge increase in the number of breweries in the United States: in 2010, the US housed just over 1600 breweries; now, that number is over 3,000 and still growing. The craft beer industry is growing at a rate of more than one new brewery per day. These small-scale artisanal breweries have distinct needs when it comes to bringing their products to market, and packaging equipment that reflects those needs is critical to craft brewery growth.

Portland, CT – Standard-Knapp, a worldwide leader in the manufacture of innovative packaging machinery, introduces the Tritium™ Multipacker, a continuous motion multi-packer capable of handling applications in the food, beverage and personal care industries. With single, double and three lane configurations, the Tritium™ Multipacker swiftly arranges products into compact pack patterns and wraps the configurations in film, thereby eliminating the need for trays and pads. The Multipacker then sends the packs through an energy-efficient heat tunnel to tightly shrink the film around each multi-pack producing a consistent, wrinkle-free bull’s eye and bottom seal.
The high efficiency Model 199’s inline design allows for high speed, consistent sealing of all incoming cases, whether close-coupled to a case packer discharge or installed as a stand-alone machine. The continuous-motion case sealer offers speeds of 50-75 cases per minute, and features quick complete changeover in less than two minutes.
