FILLING SYSTEMS FOR SOFT-DRINKS


 SOFT DRINKS: A PRODUCT THAT NEED GENTLE FILLING

To achieve a good result, soft drinks need a gentle filling; careful design of the product feeding, control adjustment of the pressure in the bowl, careful design of the passage sections in the filling valve, are the key points of the counter-pressure fillers of METALNOVAThose fillers are available with level and volumetric versions.

  ELECTRONIC VOLUMETRIC COUNTER PRESSURE FILLING SYSTEM BASED ON MAGNETIC FLOWMETERS

THE MODERN SYSTEM TO FILL SOFT DRINKS IN GENTLE AND FLEXIBLE CONDITIONS

KEY FEATURES:

  • No necessity to change the vent pipe for product / bottle change over.
  • Extreme flexibility of the filling process.

GENERAL FEATURES:

      • Isobaric electronic volumetric filling system based on magnetic flow meters.
        The functioning of these instruments is guaranteed for products with specific electric conductivity higher than 50 uS/cm (value to be considered at the filling temperature).
      • Filling without level vent tube.
      • Filling of still products without counter pressure.
      • Filling phases (bottle pressurization, product opening and closure, decompression), realized with pneumatic valves, driven by electro valves.
      • Pressurization and decompression time adjustable from control panel.
      • Reduction of the air return section in the final filling phase to reduce the filling speed and consequently the foaming.
      • Electric board for the management of the flow meter signal and of the electro valves for filling valve controls installed on the carousel to guarantee easy access.
      • Volume set up for each filling valve in the HMI operator touch screen panel.
      • Memorization of parameters set for each bottle size, with the possibility to select them from the operator touch screen panel.
      • Central bowl tested at 6 bar, with product feeding from the bottom. The bowl is internally polished and designed for easy draining.
      • Filling valves installed outside the bowl.
      • Pressure control in the bowl by modulating valves on CO2 feeding and breathing driven by signals coming from pressure transducer positioned on the filler bowl.
      • Product level adjustment in the bowl by capacitive probe and modulating valve.
      • Decompression gas collection in one discharge point.
      • Parts in contact with the product in stainless steel AISI 304 (standard) or AISI 316 (on demand).
      • Sealing rubber complying with food norms.
      • Machine predisposed for hot CIP in recirculation (CIP group excluded).
      • Dummy bottles with manual (standard) or automatic (on demand) set up.
      • Carousel frame manufactured in stainless steel AISI 304.
      • Pneumatic bottle lifters with neck bracket for PET bottles or with bottom plate for glass bottles.
      • Machine available in “neck handling” version (fixed height carrousel, typically used for PET bottles) or in “body handling” version (height adjustable carrousel, typically used for glass bottles).

OPTIONS:

    • Automatic Dummy Bottles
    • Sterile Filter on product Vent Tube Stock Tank

  LEVEL COUNTER PRESSURE FILLING SYSTEM WITH ELECTRO PNEUMATIC CONTROLS

THE EVOLUTION OF THE TRADITIONAL COUNTER PRESSURE FILLING SYSTEMS

KEY FEATURES:

  • Flexibility of the Filling Cycle.
  • Reduction of mechanical parts compared to the traditional mechanical fillers.

GENERAL FEATURES:

  • Isobaric level filling system with electro pneumatic controls.
  • Level vent tube designed for quick connection.
  • Filling phases (bottle pressurization, anti-explosion position, product closure, decompression), realized with pneumatic valves, driven by electro valves.
  • Electro valves groups for filling valve controls installed in the upper part of the carousel to guarantee easy access.
  • Memorization of parameters set for each bottle size, with the possibility to select them from the HMI operator touch screen panel.
  • Central bowl tested at 6 bar, with product feeding from the bottom. The bowl is internally polished and designed for easy draining.
  • Filling valves installed outside the bowl.
  • Upper part of the filling valve for CO2 opening (and consequent bottle pressurization) and anti-explosion position.
  • Lower part of the filling valve with pneumatic valve for decompression and pneumatic valve for CIP product passage.
  • Pressure control in the bowl by modulating valves on CO2 feeding and breathing driven by signals coming from pressure transducer positioned on the filler bowl.
  • Product level adjustment in the bowl by capacitive probe and modulating valve.
  • Lower manifold for product distribution and decompression gas return with special treatment the sliding parts to guarantee longer life.
  • Upper manifold for CO2, compressed air and electric signals distribution with special treatment in the sliding parts to guarantee longer life.
  • Decompression gas collection in one discharge point.
  • Parts in contact with the product in stainless steel AISI 304 (standard) or AISI 316 (on demand).
  • Sealing rubber complying with food norms.
  • Machine predisposed for hot CIP in recirculation (CIP group excluded).
  • Dummy bottles with manual set up.
  • Carousel frame manufactured in stainless steel AISI 304.
  • Pneumatic bottle lifters with neck bracket for PET bottles or with bottom plate for glass bottles.
  • Machine available in “neck handling” version (fixed height carrousel, typically used for PET bottles) or in “body handling” version (height adjustable carrousel, typically used for glass bottles)
