Description :

The machine is manufactured of stainless steel and food-friendly plasts of different thicknesses.

Construction is on four lockable wheels for easy transfer of the machine.

This two-block machine has been designed to assist in filling carbonated or non-carbonated beverages in glass bottles with crown caps. Two phases of bottling process in one compact block with a steel base on wheels. Rinsing + filling

 

1st section : rinsing the bottles (or cans)

  • Six rinsing positions
  • Rinsing six bottles in the same time (in standard)
  • Rinsing six cans in the same time (only with optional equipment)
  • 1st rinsing cycle (in standard) : one-way water
  • 2nd rinsing cycle (only with optional equipment) : recirculating solution (for example alkaline sanitizing solution)
  • 3nd rinsing cycle (only with optional equipment) : one-way water (for example sterile water)
  • 4rd rinsing cycle (only with optional equipment) : recirculating solution (for example sterilizing solution based on alcohol)
  • 5th rinsing cycle (only with optinal equipment) : sterile air (drying the bottles)

2nd section : filling the bottles (or cans)

  • Six filling positions
  • Isobaric filling of carbonated beverage into six bottles in the same time (in standard)
  • Gravity filling of non-carbonated beverage into six bottles in the same time (in standard)
  • Filling beverages into glass bottles (in standard)
  • Filling beverages into PET bottles (only with optional equipment)
  • Filling beverages into aluminium cans (only with optional equipment)
  • The filling process takes place automatically, the operator only has to place all the bottles on the supports and remove them in the end of the process
  • Pre-evacuation (only with optional equipment) : First the single or double pre-evacuation of oxygen is carried out inside the empty bottles, by means of an external vacuum pump
    • The second pre-evacuation of oxygen is preceded by a CO2 injection, in order to lift the rest of oxygen to the upper part of the bottle.
    • This system guarantees an excellent result in terms of dissolved oxygen – less than 28 PPB is reached in beverage in the bottles.
  • At the end of the bottle filling process, the pressure compensation occurs between the bottle and the isobaric tank, and the beverage flowes up to the level of the level devices.
  • The type of deflector installed determines the correct flow while measures a level through the walls of the bottle.
  • The level of product inside the bottles is determined by the interchangeable devices depending on the capacity of the bottle and the level height required.
  • In the last phase, the bottles are de-pressurized, controlled by an opening and closing timer in order to gently release the pressure and avoid extremely foaming.
  • The controlled creation of a foam avoid entering of the oxygen in the bottles before they are closed.
    • By modifying the depressurization times, the operator can set more or less foam.

Operating cycle:

  1. Rinse the isobaric tank with ice water to reduce the temperature in the tank to achieve reduce foaming.
  2. Fill the source tank with a beverage intended to be filled into the bottles.
  3. Remove the air from the tank by carbon dioxide.
  4. Place the bottles in the rinsing positions.
  5. Activate the bottle rinsing process by a switch on the PLC control panel.
  6. Place the bottles in the filling positions.
  7. Activate machine by means of a safety switch on the PLC control panel.
  8. Safety glass door is automatically closed (pneumatically driven).
  9. The bottles are lifted pneumatically under the filling valve.
  10. The vacuum system sucks air out of the bottle.
  11. The machine fills bottles with carbon dioxide from the external CO2 pressure bottle (not from a filling tank).
  12. The vacuum system sucks air out of the bottle.
  13. The machine fills the bottles with carbon dioxide from the external CO2 pressure bottle (not from the filling tank)
  14. The vacuum system sucks air out of the bottle.
  15. The machine achieves pressure stability and starts the filling beverage into the bottles.
  16. The machine lowers the level of pressure.
  17. The bottles are moved down from the filling valves.
