    I wonder is any of you down under have any information on this unit?
    Is it a prototype of a product under development or a one off?
    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Thats the cp bottle filler. This seems to be very similar but for filling cans. Looks like you can seal them too maybe by hand which makes me think its not a proper can seamer but a lid that closes down on the can. Something you would have to re use.

    @BrewsWayne, What forum was it on and what was said about it??

    We're looking into the filler accessory for the Tapcooler counter pressure bottle filler that turns it into a counter pressure can filler. It has a transparent can seal so users can watch the filling through the seal. There's A clamp handling the force from the large can opening, about 20 kg with one bar pressure. A great companion to any can sealer.
    We are looking at, earliest, middle of September for having some.

    THANK YOU!

    Can you give a guestimate as to what the price may be?
    Any plans to export it to the US?

    What KK said. I sent Tap cooler and email and received this... (Tapcooler cant post here as they are not a sponsor.)

    It's a can filler accessory to our counter pressure bottle filler, see https://tapcooler.com/en/accessorie...e-filler-for-vent-matic-perlick-intertap-p-16.
    We got a request for a can seal for the bottle filler on the Norwegian home brewers forum, so we have made the seal and a stand with a quick clamp. The force on the 52 mm can seal makes hand-held counter pressure filling difficult, so the clamping solution is a must. It will also include a table clamp for the stand. The can filler accessory will be available in the middle of September. We will post information about the product on our site in a few days.


    The liquid connection for the counter pressure filling is either a push in for Perlick/Intertap/Ultratap or a threaded connector for Intertap. We are also making a ball lock keg connector with a valve.

    The CO2 connection is by a 3/16” push-fit connector, through a barb adaptor for 4-7 mm ID tubes or by the optional ball lock adaptor (which was also made on request from Norwegian home brewers).


    Distribution in Australia and NZ is through Keg King. North America is currently served from Norway, but this is subject to change.

    So does this use a special can and lid/ seal that can be re-used or is it just for filling then you use a standard lid then seal with a can sealer?

    It's just for filling standard cans.

    We just restocked with Tapcooler, but still no can fillers at this point. We'll check back here when we can establish how far off they are.
