The automatic rinse rotor has spring loaded grippers mounted radially which pick up bottles one by one from the infeed transfer rotor. The bottle is inverted against a lever on the rinse valve to start the rinsing operation. Thus we have NO BOTTLE - NO RINSE. Bottles are washed for upto three seconds each, before draining ( for removal of residual water ) and uprighting for transfer to the filling rotor. The rinsing medium is generally product water.
The internationally accepted and approved VENT PIPE filling principle ensures accurate level filling without spillage. The filling accuracy is ± 5 ml. The fill tank level is regulated automatically by a PLC controlled electronic probe which reduces the machine speed in the vent of disrupted input product water supply. The machine speed is then restored to normal once the water supply is replenished.
Torque adjustable, magnetic capping heads mounted on the capping rotor, complete the capping operation using the extremely dependent PICK & PLACE mechanism. Capping head descends to push up the cap in two stages and then descends onto the bottle neck to complete capping operation. The torque on each capping head can be adjustable to achieve optimum capping results without cap damage / leakage. A unique anti turn device prevents bottle rotation during capping for positive capping.
Online combination shrink tunnel coupled to the outfeed slat conveyor can be offered optionally. Heat shrinkble cap sleeves / body labels have to be loaded manually onto the finished bottles discharging from the filling machine. The bottles pass through the online shrink tunnel, after which the finished bottles are picked up manually for cartooning.
