Blow-Off Bottling Application
Two (2) Model AE12SDS-1 Stainless Steel (Type 303) Regular Air Knives are used to blow-off liquid from 1 Litre soda bottles. With the elimination of water, the labels are now able to properly adhere. Before installation of the Air Knives, customer estimated they wasted 3 - 5% of their labels. At thousands of bottles per day, this cost can quickly add up.
Conveying Bottle Caps
A stainless steel 1-1/2" Air Conveyor Model SV112TA is used to convey plastic bottle caps to the hopper. Previously the caps were loaded manually which was an inefficient use of manpower, and the installation of a complete automatic loading system was deemed unnecessary and too costly for the particular process.
