Secomak Feature On BBC's Inside The Factory

BBC's Inside The Factory visited Molson Coors in Burton upon Trent, to follow the production process of various beers and lagers from raw ingredients, to cans ready for consumption.


Over the next twenty four hours, three million pints of beer will roll off the end of this production line - Gregg Wallace

And Secomak ensure those three million cans are dry enough to pack and store on the same production line, using their their Container Drying Systems, such as the PowerGuide air knife drying machine.
Inside The Factory's investigation helps to highlight what goes on throughout the production process; including brewing, filling, the type of water used and even how the shape of the drinking glass can influence the flavour.

They've been making beer on this site since 1777, and today they knock out six different varieties - Gregg Wallace

Some of the brands you may recognise that Molson Coors brew on site include:
Mitchells and Butlers

Producing so many cans creates a lot of problems, requiring that the product be completely dry when it reaches the end of the line, so the product can be packed and shipped straight away. This keeps the line running quickly and smoothly.

Secomak Drying Machines remove moisture to ensure the following actions can take place without delay:
Container Sleeving or Printing
Date Coding
Prevention of Rust
Preventing Bacterial Growth
Immediate Packaging
Safe for Storage or Transportation

When it comes to mass production, drying becomes a critical part of the production line, keeping output high and rejections and stoppages to a minimum.

Crown Selects Secomak Drying Solution
Among Secomak's many drying machine installations, a recent project included the Secomak Mistral V crown cap drying product in partnership with Crown. As a manufacturer of crown caps, jar caps, cans and can ends, Crown are pioneers on an international scale. As such, their innovative packaging technology is the ideal partner to Secomak's Drying Solutions.

One of the most successful shows that Secomak has attended, drinktec 2017 saw a record 76,000 people from 170 countries visit the show, a 12% increase on the previous show in 2013.
