The Magic Bus
Fully Automated Depalletizer with Pallet Handling
The Magic Bus is about two things: speed and true automation. Gone are the days of pouring time and labor into the manual handling of pallets, top frames and tier sheets on your canning line – the Magic Bus allows packaging teams to “set it and forget it” by simply loading cans, debanding, and pressing start. A standard two-pallet infeed pulls pallets of cans into a depalletizer, where they are automatically emptied, stacked, and have their top frame and tier sheets removed and stored. It is a one-stop-shop for depalletizing cans on lines running at 25 to 600 CPM/1,500 – 36,000 CPH, and is ideal for any application where speed is important, increased automation is needed, and operator involvement can be minimized.
Air consumption: Air consumption: 12 CFM @ 80 PSI
Speed: Up to 600 cpm/36,000 CPH
Dimensions: Two pallet infeed, NI-NO: 281” L, 64” W, 134” H, 155” ceiling clearance to stand machine

The Alchemator from ProBrew
Craft a Better Hard Seltzer!
Clearly Different, Clearly Better
The ProBrew Alchemator is a game-changer that allows craft brewers and beverage producers to easily make crystal-clear Hard Seltzer from beer, wine, kombucha, or other fermented alcoholic beverages. The Alchemator incorporates ProBrew’s industry recognized Plug-&-Play simplicity also found in the popular ProCarb Mini and other ProBrew systems.
Craft Hard Seltzer
Flavored Hard Seltzers and LA/NA Beers are rapidly growing in popularity. Available in two different configurations, the Alchemator can pull the alcohol and water from the feed beer or fermented beverage creating a Hard Seltzer base and LA/NA beer or beverage concentrate. By adding carbonation and flavoring to the alcohol water base, you can easily create a crystal-clear Hard Seltzer without compromising your brewery’s unique product characteristics.
Best Beer Quality
The Alchemator’s unique process control and membrane technology allows brewers to process beer at normal post-fermentation temperatures of 32-34°F. This helps prevent oxygen pickup, reduces stress on the beer, and maintains essential flavor and quality characteristics such as: aroma, color and turbidity better than thermal dealcoholizing systems.
The feed beer or fermented beverage concentrate can also be reconstituted with the DA-5 or DA-10 inline Water Deaeration system. By adding deaerated water to the concentrate, you can easily produce a great tasting LA/NA Beer while maintaining its original flavor profile and product quality! The Alchemator will help you increase your volume, increase your offerings, and increase your sales by simply generating two beverages from one!
Straight to Packaging
The Alchemator has the ability to supply finished beverages directly to packaging (kegging, canning, bottling). With optional ProCarb Inline Carbonation and DA-5 or DA-10 Water Deaeration system, the Alchemator can supply a finished beverage at 50 x 12oz. containers per minute. Obviously, the option also exists to go to a secondary/brite tank for storage.
The Alchemator is available in two different configurations to meet any brewery or beverage producers’ needs. The Alchemator Model 20 and Alchemator Model 40 runs 20 bbls per day and 40 bbls per day, respectively. Custom designed and engineered systems are also available upon request.

Crawford Automated Keg Washer
Designed by brewers to make one of the biggest headaches in the brewery go away!
The Crawford automatic keg washer was designed by brewers to make one of the biggest headaches in the brewery go away. We’ve all spent day after day manually washing kegs. Aside from taking forever, it’s inefficient, tedious work. Now, washing kegs can be something you do on the side while brewing or accomplishing other important tasks. Just load two kegs onto the machine, push start, and walk away. The strobe light on the top will start flashing when the unit enters CO2 pressurization mode, and by the time you make it over to the washer, it will be time to load two more kegs. Of course, you can leave the two clean kegs on there as long as you want to finish what you are doing.
The Crawford automatic keg washer has independent tanks for caustic (heated and insulated) and sanitizer, low caustic reservoir heater shutoff, fully adjustable cycle times and settings, manual cycle mode, touchscreen interface, and two pumps. The washer is on wheels so you can move it out of the way when you’re not using it, and it plugs into a normal dedicated 15 amp 110 volt outlet. You’ll see why we think of our automatic keg washer as a brewer’s best friend.
Crawford Automated Keg Washer Includes:
- Touch screen interface with fully adjustable cycle timing settings, optional manual cycle and caustic temperature display
- Low caustic reservoir volume heater shutoff
- Sanitary stainless-steel components, process piping, with an insulated barrier between solution tanks
- Quiet pumps, yet powerful
- Pressure regulator for incoming CO2
- Dual heads and locators to wash two kegs at once
- Easy caustic and sanitizer drain ports
- Casters for mobility
- Plugs into a standard 15A 120V outlet!
- Top mounted strobe light tells you when cycle is almost complete. Add two kegs, press start, and walk away. Otto will let you know when it’s time for
- two more.
– Caustic Tank: 22.0 Gallons
– Sanitizer Tank: 31.0 Gallons
– Inputs: ~70PSI compressed air, >15PSI CO2, 120V 15A AC, water supply (house pressure, hot if desired)
– Outputs: caustic reservoir drain, sanitizer reservoir drain, washing sequence drain, reservoir overfill drain
