II. Specifications

III. Description of Equipment

1. In-feed Air Conveyor directly fed from blow molders

Air conveyor is supported on the ground, with air fan installed above the conveyor. Air filter is installed in the entry of every fan, to avoid dust blown into bottles. Bottles are retained by neck with two supporting carrier plates in the conveyor, and transported into Tri-bloc.

Main technical parameter

  • Type: F-9
  • Power: 2.2KW/set (Per Blower)


2. Rinsing Filling and Capping machine


Main Description:

The bottles enter the tri-bloc via the air conveyor. Then it enters the rinsing machine via a star support entering the rinser grippers. The grippers will then orientate the bottle and rinsing will commence.

The bottle is turned bottom down then exits the rinser and goes through the star support into the filling machine where it is placed in-line with the filling valve. The bottom cam system lifts the bottle into the filling position. The bottles are then filled to the required filling height.

After the bottles are filled it will exit the filler via a star support into the capper.

The bottles enters the capper, caps are fed into the pick and place system where a cap will be picked up by the capping head then place and screw it to the next bottle, this capping heads are equipped with magnets and allow for very accurate capping torques. The bottles then exit the capper via a star support.

The bottle then leaves the star support, exit the tri-blocand are transported on a plastic slat conveyor
