Flexibility to layout


  • Plenums: straight, curves, slopes
  • Floor, wall or aerial supports
  • Bottle train formation for conveying or switching

Flexibility to formats and products


  • Solutions for simple and fast format changeovers
  • Automatic or manual adjustment of under-neck and lateral guides
  • Different configuration of guides available, flexibility for future formats
  • User-friendly and preconfigured control panel for format selection (automatic guides)
  • Simple format pre-settings easily accessible through the panel view
  • Quick format changeover blow molder interface
  • Automatic or manual bottle ejection :
    • Protection of critical machine from backed-up jamming
    • Direct silo feeding
    • Sampling at filter infeed

Ergonomic design


  • Easy clip and slide neck rail replacement
  • Removable convex top cover with integrated cable tray
  • Optimum cleanability design and materials
  • Removable deck for inside cleaning

Total air purity control for product care


  • Air filtration: gravimetric pre-filtration (F5), high efficiency opacimetric filtration (F8), HEPA absolute filtration (H12)
  • Air tightness: over-pressure for controlled air flow, connecting flange securing air tight plenum to plenum coupling, side or full cover providing a confined atmosphere

Sustainability


  • Dry lubrication for under-neck guide: higher performance and energy savings
  • Improved reliability, very low friction coefficient
  • 20% decrease in drive electricity consumption of the ventilation columns
  • Improved lifespan of the under-neck guides
  • Lubricant approved by food-processing standards
