FT102XA – Carbonator, Filling and Capping

 

FT102XA – Carbonator, Filling and Capping

The FT102XA is the latest in high accuracy carbonation and filling technology. You can carbonate a premixed product or water and syrup in a post mix configuration.

Filling soft and alcoholic beverages into PET, bioplastic, glass and cans with screw capping, crown capping and now an integral can seamer.

 

This FT102XA has many new updates including:

  • Reduced minimum batch volumes
  • Ability to carbonate highly foaming products
  • Internally mounted chiller to reduce space requirement in your laboratory

Other updates include the ability to have a twin filling and capping station on the same unit, measuring the Dissolved Oxygen and CO2 directly.
