Compact semi-automatic machine to filling bottles with carbonated beverages
includes four integrated machines :
rinsing of bottles … four bottle positions
isobaric filling beverage into bottles … four bottle positions
pneumatic closure of bottles with champagne natural cork or straight natural cork … one bottle position
wire cork closure … one bottle position
The semiautomatic machine includes in a single compact machine the functions of bottle rinsing, bottle filling, closing bottles by natural cork stopper and fixing of cork on the bottle by steel wires. It is suitable for the filling beverages into glass bottles with a diameter ranging from 55 mm to 115 mm and a height from 190 mm up to 375 mm.The isobaric filling machine is suitable for the bottling every kinds of effervescent beverages and carbonated non-alcoholic beverages (only with an optional equipment on demand)
Production speed : 200-300 bph (depending on operator’s ability, bottle size & filling temperature)
Product : carbonated beverages (sparkling wine, cider, beer …)
Bottles : glass bottles (from 190 to 375 mm height / from 55 to 115 mm diameter )
How the machine works
This machine is suitable to filling of carbonized alcoholic beverages into bottles. It is suitable for beverages obtained according to the Charmat method (fermentation of the wine in tanks), mainly products such as alcoholic cider, beer etc.
According to the product to be bottled, the machine can be equipped with the pre-evacuation equipment (to create of the vacuum in the bottle before the filling) … see Options.
After adding fittings and electro-valves to every single valve, the pre-evacuation is obtained the same pressure inside the bottle like in the filling valve, after that a vacuum pump sucks the air contained in the bottle.
Then, using the valve opening throttle, the CO2 is injected into the bottle so that both pressures go in compensation. Then the filling of the product starts.
Option recommended for beer, cider and for all products with the same requirements.
The isobaric filling process works fully automatically so the operator needs to perform only the loading and unloading of the bottles on / from the holding cups.
The filling valve is designed to avoid the foaming of the product, it guarantees the maximum fluidity during the entire fillinf process using a completely automatic leveling system.
The machine is equipped with four filling valves that enable filling of two bottles at a time. So, while the machine performs the filling of two bottles on one side, on the other side other two bottles can be unloaded and loaded by human operator.
The filler is equipped with no-return valve G 1” made of AISI 316 stainless steel (it prevents the return of the beverage into the tank and its consequent foaming).
Pneumatic cap head for the cork stoppers is made of stainless steel and equipped with a safety device. It is designed to closing bottles by natural champagne corks and is suitable for small or medium volumes of production. By request and with the suitable adaptation kit (see Options) it is possible to apply natural wine corks with the same head.
The closing system of the corking unit consists of four hardened steel jaws ground. The jaws can be easily demounted for cleaning and sterilization. It can work with corks with maximal diameter 30mm and maximal height 52 mm. After the bottle is put on the holding cup, the machine is operated through safety two-hand control and stops at the end of every cycle. The distribution of the corks into the closing head is automatic. The corks are firstly loaded manually into a steel tube that serve like stocker.
The machine to fixing corks by wire is suitable for the application of the wire-hoods and their closure. It is possible to apply the following types of wire-hoods : four-leg wire-hood with cap and four-leg wire-hood without cap. Its operation system is mechanical and pneumatic; the wire-hoods are first manually loaded on the steel stick which is then taken out (capacity of the stick is 20 wire-hoods).
The wire-hoods are distributed in automatic. The bottle is positioned on a suitable support and the cycle is started through a two-hand control.
When the cycle is completed the machine stops and no part remains in movement.
The hour production capacities of the various units are different.
The filling part can reach a production capacity of 200/300 bottles per hour (with optimal conditions of the product which is under constant pressure and is pushed into the filling tank from the beverage tank under pressure or through a membrane pump connected to the electrovalves of the machine).
The cork applicator and wire applicator can reach a production capacity up to 800 bottles per hour.
Both data depend on the ability of the operator.
The front safety panel prevents any accident due to breakages.
By request the machine can be supplied in version with wheels.
By request the machine is available also in the version consisting of filling part and cap applicator for crown corks (for effervescent and still drinks to be packaged with crown caps).
First section : rinse of bottles (four positions)
Second section : four filling valves (diameter: 15mm)
Third section : one head to closing the bottle neck by a cork stopper – the cork applicator
Fourth section: one head for fixation of the cork stopper on the bottle using a metallic wire – the wire lock applicator
