Filling technology


Great versatility is the hallmark of the Eurostar HS. The machine comes in both glass and PET bottle versions and is designed to fill carbonated and still beverages, beer and wine.

Eurostar  HS  is  based  on  proven  technology  guaranteeing  reliability,  high  performance,  product  quality  and  easy
sanitization. As the HS name suggests, this machine offers high-speed precision filling and, in the case of beer,
minimal oxygen in the bottle.

Simple design for easy cleaning and maintenance

The mechanical filling valve has an extremely simple design with a limited number of components and gaskets. This guarantees easy sanitization and minimizes maintenance.

  • The return springs are external, improving hygiene conditions and simplifying replacement
  • The valve components can be dismantled independently, a maintenance advantage
  • The interchangeable vent tubes are attached to the body of the valve ensuring rapid assembly and dismantling.

Flexibility

Depending on the product and container to be filled, various versions of the valve are available:

  • Without pre-evacuation: carbonated beverages or still water in glass or PET bottles
  • With pre-evacuation: beer or CSD in glass bottles
  • With double pre-evacuation: beer in glass bottles
  • With self-leveling: wine in glass bottles
  • With pre-evacuation and self-leveling: still or sparkling wine in glass bottles
  • Up to two closing devices (crowner and/or capper) can be located on the extended base-frame (available as an option).

Sanitization


The  machine  is  designed  to  be  washed and  sanitized  in  a  closed  loop, installing dummy bottles applied to the filling valves.

All  parts  in  contact  with  the  product  are treated in the sanitization cycle. On request, an  external  sanitization  system  can  be
provided  for  the  filler  carousel  and  base frame. Any residue is removed by foaming products and water rinsing.

Bottle lifts


The bottle lifts are raised from above and are located inside the carousel where they are well protected. The design of the bottle lift makes for easier, faster assembly and dismantling, as these operations are carried out with the bottle lift completely assembled.

If a bottle bursts, the fragments of glass and product fall directly to the floor without coming into contact with the sliding parts of the bottle lift.

At the same time, an automatic wash-off system is switched on to spray high-pressure water jets onto the bottle lift plates, the filling valves and the centering bells which are lifted into the wash-off area, where any remaining glass debris is completely removed.

Format changeovers


The format changeover is completely tool free, thanks to a quick turn of the handles of the starwheel and guides. Optional guides quick changeover system with a quarter turn.

Automatic height adjustment


On request, the filler for glass bottles can be equipped with an automatic height adjustment system to adapt to the various bottle formats. This feature guarantees high precision, repeatability, easy operation and minimal changeover times.

Crowner


The crowner offers both speed and flexibility as it can be adjusted according to the application.

  • The machine can be fitted with a double hopper and double cap infeed chute to enhance efficiency: if the main chute jams, the second chute automatically starts, avoiding machine downtime.
  • Also available in an ultraclean version, the crowner is perfectly suited to applications requiring higher hygiene as it is specifically designed to make cleaning operations easier.
  • As an option, both crown caps and ring-pulls can be used with quick changeovers.

Capper

As an alternative or in addition to the crowner, one or more cappers can be installed to handle all types of screw caps:

  • Aluminum caps
  • Plastic caps
  • Sport caps
  • Special caps

Quality filling with variable pressure foaming system


This   foaming   system   is   installed   on   fillers dedicated to beer. Residual air is eliminated from the bottle neck by injecting high pressure water before crowning.  As an option, this system can be automated.

The PLC software adjusts the pressure according to  a  pressure/speed graph  set  by  the  operator interface  terminal.  By  memorizing  the  graphs, proper  foaming  is  guaranteed  in  all  working conditions.

The  system  can  also  be  integrated with  an  automatic  device  controlling  the  foam water temperature.
