About the WEIMA E.200 drainage press

The E.200 drainage press is the ideal solution for draining underfilled or out-of-spec product in one easy step. The rejected cans can be ejected directly into the hopper of the machine, which punctures them so the contents can be drained into the machine's collection bin. The machine can also be hand-fed, if there are loose cans that need crushing. All rejected, out-of-spec cans are then easily compressed into Ø200mm discs for convenient recycling.

See it in action: The WEIMA E.200 will be in operation at BrewExpo for the very first time in the WEIMA booth!

Benefits of drainage press technology

  1. Save space while storing out-of-spec cans for destruction
  2. Mounted on lockable casters for easy installation into existing operations
  3. Maximize workforce through automated can draining
  4. Maintain quality control of what product goes to market
  5. Increase value of recyclable aluminum through compression
  6. Easy control during operation thanks to touchscreen PLC

For breweries and canning operations, drainage press technology allows more time to focus on what really matters: creating a delicious, quality product.

Compress your waste, save some space!

Floor space is precious in production facilities and brewhouses-- don't waste it on gaylords of empty aluminum cans waiting to be sent to a recycler. Compress them into discs for a space-saving storage solution and/or recycle more at once.

This is just another way brewing companies and canning lines can maximize ROI with drain-and-compress technology.
Did you know? Recyclers often pay more for compressed aluminum cans rather than loose cans.

Case study: Fiddlehead Brewing Co.

Don't just take our word for it! Fiddlehead Brewing Co., located in Shelburne, Vermont, has seen the benefits of a drainage press from WEIMA firsthand. Its commitment to the environment, as well as its desire to maximize its workforce's many talents, led this brewhouse to integrate a WEIMA E.200 into its existing automated canning line.

Fiddlehead fully understands the importance of protecting its brand's strong reputation by ensuring that no out-of-spec product makes it to market or to a landfill.
