As a company that deals in the manufacturing of beverages/soft drinks, having the right equipment is key to your daily operations and productions. Beverage bottling operations involve a complex process that is executed by customized machines. From the cleaning to the additional machines.
For those who don’t know what we are talking about, bottling equipment involves a series of machines or plants designed to process the filling of bottles, it also requires some steps, and each of these steps involves different machines to perform it. In this article, we will show you the steps taken and the machine used.
First on our list not by opinion but by responsibility is the cleaning machine. Among the beverage bottling equipment, the cleaning machine comes first because before filling the bottle, there should be a deep rinsing of each bottle, this is to make sure that the bottles are really clean before been filled with any liquid product. They are equipped with grippers (but this depends on the dimension of the machine) the grippers grab the bottles and rinse them using nozzles via a cleaning liquid or air is sprayed.
The Filling Machines
Ones the cleaning is done, the next step to take is to take it to the filling machine. The filling machine as the name implies is an important part of the bottling system. The bottles are passed through a conveyor and are moved under some filling valves which injects the liquid into them (bottles). Sometimes, the machine distributes a little amount of inert gas after each filling. The best of them have a feature that allows them to prevent the valves from working when there are no bottles under them.
The Capping Machines
If you want to complete your bottling equipment, this machine should be bought. Without it, the process is not complete. The bottles are moved up to the final machine, this is where the ap of the bottle is placed on them. Sealing the bottle and making the product ready to be stored or transported off.
