PET (Polyethylene Terephthalates) Bottles are generally used in the Bottled Water / Packaged Water Industry. These machines are a combination of Two Main Parts, Infrared Heating Section & Blowing Section. Machines are available in different capacities and types like Auto & Semi Auto.
Traditionally, pipe water distributed by the municipalities has been the trusted water supply for drinking purposes. In the earlier days, water available from the wells and springs used to be considered safe and was stored in earthen pots or brass containers. Almost a decade ago, the introduction of bottled water or “packaged mineral water” changed the tradition of serving and consuming drinking water. This has ushered in very strongly, the use of polymers or plastics as materials for water storage and distribution.Get an Instant Quote
The basic range of these machines in terms of production capacity is from 2400 BPH to a max. of 4600BPH (Practical range), and in terms of bottle sizing an individual machine can blow from 60 ml to 2000ml in a single machine by effecting changes in the perform and the mold. Higher ranges of machines are also available up to 20000 BPH with rotary mechanism.
These machines are used at higher operating speeds and can be interlinked to the filling lines to achieve complete atomization of the process right from producing the bottles to Rinsing, Filling & Capping of the same. Since there is no Manual Interference strict and 100% hygienic requirements can be fulfilled.
Since all the actions in these machines are controlled and have no manual interference we can establish a practical cycle time limit and hence these machines are more efficient with higher rates of productivity. The range of capacity and size of bottle can be programmed in the machine. The cost of molds in these machines are very high. For different sizes of the bottle different molds have to be used.
It requires manual interferences on large scale i.e. from Putting the performs on the heater , collecting the same and again loading it on the blow machine and again un loading it the time required for this operations cannot be ascertained practically and is 100% dependant on the efficiency of the operator. Thus this type of arrangement is called SEMI AUTOMATIC Blowing Technique and the machine so called by this name.
Both the above versions are used extensively in the industry today, semi auto versions are now getting replaced by the Auto-drop versions because of higher efficiency values and good returns on investment. The basic range of these machines in terms of production capacity are from 600 BPH to a max. of 1800 BPH (theoretical range) and in terms of bottle sizing an individual machine can blow from 60 ml to 2000ml in a single machine by effecting changes in the preform and the mold. 5000 ml can also be blown with slight changes in the machine.
Before filling, freshly manufactured plastic bottles are rinsed and inverted from where they go for filling on a rotary bottle filler. The water flows from the filler bowl into the bottles via Ventra flow valves. These valves use an airlock method for accurate filling. The variation is no more than 5mm. When liquid reaches the end of the valve sleeve, air cannot escape. Pressure is created at the top of the bottle, and no more liquid can enter. The airlock method provides consistent, repetitive filling and reduced product loss. The fillers are available in a wide range of configurations and are adaptable to a variety of capping systems.
IS : 14543 - 1998 (Specification for Packaged Drinking Water) prescribes the hygienic practices to be followed in respect of collecting water, its treatment, bottling, storage, packaging, transport, distribution and sale for direct consumption , so as to guarantee a safe, hygienic and wholesome product.
The bottles are generally capped using roll-on type plastic caps, with pilfer proof rings.
