      Benefits to you

      Microbiologically up to date

      The post-treatment section is designed in Clean Design. The double-end design provides spatial separation between contaminated and clean bottle flow. Together with our innovate filtration concepts, it thereby meets the highest hygiene demands.

      Absolutely efficient

      Thanks to the automatic filtration of contaminants, resources are used sparingly. At the same time, the modular machine layout can be individually customised to the bottle and label quality.

      Sparing use of resources

      The Krones bottle washer surprises with its economic water and energy budget. And it proves that you do not always need lots of chemicals to achieve highest hygiene standards.

      Digitally up to date

      The latest technology used on the touch-screen and in the PLC ideally equips our machines for the new age of digitalization. For this purpose, we offer a wide portfolio of digital products for the line and machine, as well as individual setting options directly on the touch-screen.

      Operation made easy

      All double-end bottle washers offer easy access to all components so that cleaning and maintenance can be performed as quickly as possible.
