After installing a palletizing system from Krones in fall of 2020, the family firm Mineralbrunnen RhönSprudel has now ordered the complete wet end as well. The returnable-glass line is the first turnkey line from Krones to go into operation at RhönSprudel.
The newly designed Linajet Plus crate washer features an immersion bath as well as a jetting system to ensure the thorough cleaning of returnable crates. Another new feature is a Krones-built distribution system installed as part of the MultiCo pack conveyor downstream of the empties inspector.
All of the machines had to be brought into the hall by way of a special 500-ton crane, through three openings in the roof.
The palletizing system commissioned in fall 2020 consists of a Pressant Duplex 2NT depalletizer with two depalletizing stations, a Modulpal 3A palletizer for full crates, and a Modulpal 3A palletizer for empties crates that are not needed for the current production run.
