Our two canning facilities can produce up to 100,000 cans an hour in eight different sizes and ten packaging options.
Can filling using automated measuring technology
Our state-of-the-art facilities automatically control inline CO₂, Brix, and alcohol measurements, as well as automated pasteurisation and energy recovery. We can store delivered beverages in pressurised tanks with a capacity of up to 120,000l to reduce downtime.

Our lab is equipped with automated measuring technology that allows us to precisely control filling. Individual bottling parameters are reviewed, electronically recorded and evaluated in real-time.
Aluminium and steel can packaging
RHODIUM can fill beverages in aluminium and steel cans in sizes ranging from 150ml to 500ml. There are four packaging lines available, and in addition to the standard tray of 24 units, we can pack cans in trays of six, 12 and 18 in film and cardboard.
Wrap-around cardboard packaging is available. It is set up, filled and sealed by machines, making it suitable for transporting trays of 24 cans for export. Packaged trays can be placed on pallets for a number of transport providers on request. RHODIUS can carry out contracted fillings according to customer requirements.
Customised design for cans
Cans are an ideal packaging solution for beverages that are sensitive to light and oxygen to ensure the durability of the drink. The lightweight material makes up only 3% of the total weight, with the product weighing 97%. Cans are easy to handle in shops and need less space on shelves. For customers, they are easy to transport, open and cool.
Packaging can be designed to attract the customer’s attention with a range of bright prints. There is a range of lid options for cans for innovative marketing. Colour and shape can be customised and the lid can be resealable, integrated with a straw or prize codes.

Specialised recipes are developed for our customers in cooperation with basic and raw material companies based on high-quality, target group specific demands. They are available for a range of beverages, including mineral water, soft or energy drinks, fruit juices, and alcoholic drinks.
Natural colours and flavours, carbonisation and freshness are some of the factors taken into consideration in development of new products or recipes before they can be created into a marketable product.
