2015 – 01 LG-EP electropneumatic counter pressure filler supplied for PET

The counter pressure LG-EP valve, initially used for a glass project, has been supplied also for PET bottles.
Even if for PET bottles the trend is to use volumetric valves, in case of low budget project and reduced number of format to be bottled, the LG-EP system can be a valid solution.
The electro pneumatic control is used to control the CO2 opening for the counter pressure, to put the valve in the anti-explosion position., to control the decompression and to control the opening of the CIP channel.
The advantage of this solution is the possibility to set from control panel the duration of the various phases of the filling cycle, optimizing them for each size without having constraint related to the mechanical position of the controls around the filling carrousel. Moreover it is possible to decide if to do a multi step snifting and the set filling cycles can be memorized and loaded for each size.
The fill level is adjusted changing the vent pipe, designed with a quick connection system.

2013 – 01 Realized the new electro pneumatic counterpressure filling valve LG-EP for glass bottles

METALNOVA present the counter pressure filling LG-EP valve with electro pneumatic controls, supplying a rinsing, filling capping monoblock for glass bottles.
The valve present itself as an evolution of the original traditional valve LG, combining the electro pneumatic control technologies already used since long time for the electronic volumetric valves.
The electro pneumatic control is used to control the CO2 opening for the counter pressure, to put the valve in the anti-explosion position., to control the decompression and to control the opening of the CIP channel.
The advantage of this solution is the possibility to set from control panel the duration of the various phases of the filling cycle, optimizing them for each size without having constraint related to the mechanical position of the controls around the filling carrousel.
Moreover it is possible to decide if to do a multi step snifting and the set filling cycles can be memorized and loaded for each size.

2011 – 01 New version of the electronic volumetric filling valve VMAG

METALNOVA present the new version of the electronic volumetric filling valve VMAG for still products.
The previous version was based on vertical obturator driven by a double position pneumatic cylinder, to have the possibility of double filling speed (fast and slow).
The new version is composed by a central body, with a main central inside channel for the product, connected to the final hole through two sections open and closed by two pneumatic valves with obturator.
This valve design allows a drastic reduction of mechanical parts to be used and a very clean path for the product which means easiness in the cleaning operations.
As the previous version the valve can be equipped with automatic dummy bottles.

2010 – 01 Installation for fresh milk with VMAG filling system

METALNOVA enters in the milk bottling field, supplying a rinsing filling capping monobloc for fresh milk in PET and glass bottles.
The supply is based on the best available technology, it means a monobloc with the BASELESS design and a volumetric electronic system VMAG.
The monobloc with the BASELESS designed encountered particular success with the customer, due to its high hygiene features very important in the milk field.
The electronic volumetric filling valve VMAG has been realised in a special release with membrane to guarantee the best cleaning.
The filler is equipped with an automatic system for dummy bottles positioning, that allows predisposing very quickly the machine for the cleaning and the production without entering inside and touching the parts after the cleaning.

2009 – 02 Photovoltaic plant on METALNOVA building

In a contest of renewing of the building a photovoltaic plant has been installed on the roof.

The plant, bases on the technology of the amorphous silicon crystals, has power peak of 19,54 kW, and allow covering 2/3 of the energy request of METALNOVA and to allow the use of air conditioners installed in the production department.

The investment confirms the respect of the company for the environment; contextually with the installation of the photovoltaic plant, the roof and the windows has been redone, to improve the energetic efficiency of the building. In addition the company is internally organized for the separated collection of the garbage’s and the use of methane powered cars for the low transfers.

2009 – 01 METALNOVA present at DRINKETC Munich 2009

METALNOVA has been present at the most important exhibitions in the bottling world, DRINKTEC Munich , from 14th to 19th September 2009.

METALNOVA will show at the exhibition a filling capping monobloc that resume all the innovations of the last years:
BASELESS design machine, with motorization in the top part of the machine and space under the bottles completely free to guarantee cleaning and accessibility.
Electronic volumetric filling system for still products, which is revealing itself the most requested filling system for its accuracy, cleaning and flexibility features.
PET bottles inlet with synchronization star wheel driven by special electronic system that allows avoiding the bottle inlet to the filling valves in temporary breakdown, avoiding production rejects and allowing the postponement of the maintenance without stopping the production.

2008 – 01 Realized a the new filling system VP for liquors

On the occasion of the supplying of a complete liquor bottling line, METALNOVA has presented a new low vacuum filling system for liquors and wines.
As usual the filling of these products is done by gravity with low vacuum to avoid dripping and guarantee level accuracy.
The news of the VP system is to realize the vacuum and product opening and closure operations with pneumatic controls.
This system allows the following benefits:

  • simplification of the mechanics of the machine;
  •  management of the filling phase setting each time from control panel;
  •  machine draining and recover of the production end with opening of the filling valves in an arc of the carrousel equipped with collection tray.
  •  positioning of the product feeding tank outside the machine
  •  automatic bottle level adjustment.

2007 – 01 Presented the 5 gallons washing machine LAVADO COMBI divided in two modules

With the aim to improve the quality of the 5 gallons returnable containers METALNOVA propose a new type of washing machine divided in two modules.
The two modules are connected each other with a down loading –loading unit.
The first module is used for the pre washing (eventually with hot water) whilst the second module is used for the hot washing, the sanitization and the final rinsing.
Each module has its own chain to avoid water transfer from the pre washing to the following stations, avoiding the contamination of the washing and rinsing tank with the dirties removed in the pre washing.
The efficiency of this solution is increased in case of installation of the external washing system with rotating nozzles and of the internal washing system with penetrating nozzles.

2006 – 01 Presented the counterpressure volumetric filler LG-VMAG

In order to remain in the avant-garde in the filling technology, METALNOVA has realized the first electronic volumetric counter pressure filler.
The filling system is volumetric (based on magnetic flow meters) and not by level.
The main system advantages are the elimination of the level vent pipe (normally to be changed or to be adjusted in case of different bottle size) and the possibility to equip the machine with dummy bottles that can be automatically installed.
Moreover, due to the use of pneumatic controls, it possible to manage in a flexible mode the phases of pressurization, filling and decompression in function of the product conditions.
It is also possible to reduce the final filling speed in case of particularly foaming products.

2005 – 01 Realized the rotary electronic weight filler VMAS for oil

2002 – 01 Presentation of the BASELESS design

The Emballage exhibition in Paris 2002 has been the occasion to present an absolute news in the bottling machines field.
BASELESS is the new design for the bottling machines, that becomes real filling rooms where everything is hanging on the roof and the total absence of movement parts under the bottles assures high cleaning and access easiness for the operator.
Immediately after its presentation, the system has found purchasers which have appreciated the easy use and cleaning.
All the bottling machines of METALNOVA range can be realized with this particular design.

2001 – 01 Realized the first electronic volumetric filler VMAG

After some years of research and development, METALNOVA have realized the first electronic volumetric filler for still products. The filling system is based on magnetic flow meters.
The filling valve is constituted by a simple obturator pneumatically driven, which opens with bottle presence and closes when the flow meter send the signal of filling end. The main benefit of this system is the absence of contact between the valve and the bottle.
Moreover there is a reduction of the number of the mechanical elements composing the filling valve and it is not necessary the bottle lifter.
The filling parameters for each bottle size are saved on the PLC and recalled with simple operations on the touch screen control panel.
