The all-round treatment with gaseous H2O2 sterilises the entire preform surface at once: Inside, outside and in the neck area.
Gentle preform treatment
The sterilisation of the preforms hardly leaves any residues: This is because the surface enlarges by many times and the residues of the sterilisation medium are diluted accordingly.
The complete block production can run for up to 120 hours at a time – and only a short 90 minute sterilisation break is required before it is back in action and ready for the next round. Intermediate cleaning after manual interventions also only takes 30 minutes.
Filling to the last drop: The system uses the remaining product quantity in order to calculate exactly how many more PET containers and caps are still to be sterilised.
Handling parts change-over at the filler and the capper can be performed up to a defined output without any manual interference.
The optional automation package allows change-overs to be performed on the entire block in under 20 minutes – including the emptying and starting up of the machines. This means that you gain an additional two hours of production time with each change-over – and operators have their hands free to perform other tasks.
