Bottling equipment

From the cleaning to the capping

Bottling equipment consists in a series of machines or plants realized to process the filling of bottles in beverage activities or industries. It does not matter what size your business is: bottling process always requires some necessary steps, each of them with a specific machine to perform it.

 

 

1- Cleaning machine

The first machine among bottling equipment should be a cleaning machine, which is necessary to perform the preliminary rinsing of the bottles before the filling process. A cleaning machine is usually equipped with a variable number of grippers – depending on its dimension – which grab the bottles and made them rinsed by some nozzles, through which the cleaning liquid or air is sprayed.

 

 

2- Filling machine

A filling machine is obviously the heart of bottling equipment. Through a conveyor, the bottles are moved under some filling valves that inject the liquid into them; sometimes, especially in beer processing, the filling machine also distributes a little amount of inert gas at the end of each filling, to scatter the oxygen from the top of the bottle in order to avoid the oxidation of the product. The best filling machines are equipped with a system to prevent the valves from working when no bottle is under them.

 

 

3- Capping machine

The capping machine is the last device you have to provide if you want to complete your bottling equipment. After the filling, the bottles move up to this last machine, where a cap is provided for each of them, sealing the liquid and making the product ready to be stored or be transported elsewhere.

 

 

4- Additional machines

Bottling equipment could include some additional machines in case you have to perform particular processes on the beverage you are bottling. To obtain carbonated water or premix juices, you will need a saturation unit or a premix unit; if you want to pasteurize the packed bottles, the best choice would be a pasteurizer machine. There are also many other machines designed to perform specific tasks during the bottling, depending on the industry type.
