Automatic Mineral Water Bottles filling Plant/Machine
Water bottle filling plant consists of series of machines and equipment. It started from raw water. Sources of raw water may ground water, supply line, and any other details in sources of bottled water article. This raw water is pumped to quartz sand, active carbon filter.
After the quartz sand filter water is pumped to precise filter like reverse osmosis or ultrafiltration plant. In this phase all the impurities salts, and water hardening elements are removed.
After ultrafiltration or reverse osmosis all impurities are removed but some type of bacteria left in the water RO system cannot remove some bacteria and other harmful pathogens next step comes to remove such bacteria. UV light or ozone is used to kill the harmful bacteria from water to make it safe for drinking. After this stage water is ready to be packed or drink.
Automatic Bottle Filling Machine – Rinsing
The bottles are fed into the air conveyor were the bottles are guided into the first turn table which sets up the alignment for the bottle to be transferred to the rinsing section. The air conveyor is also designed so that it can be directly integrated to a Fully Automatic Blowing Machine. In the rinsing section the bottle is turned through 180deg through a bottle inverting guide equipped with flexible joint and is rinsed through a jet of water at 3 bar. At the rinsing table the water jets out only thru three Nozzles, the rest of the movement through the rinsing table is for a Drip cycle where the Left out Water particles drips out from the bottle. The rinsed Bottle is then Passed on to the Filling section after passing through an Inter mediate Turn table.
Automatic Bottle Filling Machine – Filling
In Automatic mineral water bottle filling machine, the bottles are then passed on to the filling section. The filling section is equipped with spring loaded nozzles. Once the bottles are picked they spring loaded nozzles are activated by a Drum Cam Mechanism. Since the machine is equipped with gravity filling the accuracy of filling is maintain as there is no foaming. The filling nozzles are made of SS316 and the Filler tank is completely electro polished and this reduced possibilities of Microbial growth.
Bottle filling and capping machine
In Automatic mineral water bottle filling machine, the fill level sensor and the bottle sensors give the signal to the pneumatic latch the cap is released for capping. The entire capping is done by a “pick and place mechanism”. The capping chute is so design that the caps of the right orientation only are passed on to the cap conveyor. The other caps are sent back to the chute through a ‘Fall out Mechanism’. The caps chuck are spring loaded and is equipped with magnetic torque controller, this prevent capped bottles are released into the slat conveyor for labeling and packing.
After this bottles are ready for shipment.
