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. The installation of a complete automatic loading system was deemed unnecessary and too costly for the particular process.
(Model DS02S) Reversible Drum Storm is able to deliver liquid-filled drums to the point of use and fill the machines directly from the drum, eliminating the possibility of spillage onto the ground.
