Buying time during cleaning
The performance variant uses hot caustic for machine surface disinfection and reliably sterilises the product channels with steam. This process guarantees microbiologically safe filling in the fastest cleaning and sterilisation times.
- Timespan from last to first bottle:
- only 90 minutes – including cleaning and sterilisation
- Saving a full hour compared to other systems
- Only 30 minutes intermediate sterilisation after manual interventions in the block
- Handling parts change-over at the blow moulder:
- Without intervention in the sterile area
- Therefore no intermediate sterilisation required
The key components
Benefits to you
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.

Everything you need for PET: the closed plastics cycle under one roof
Can plastic packages be sustainable? Yes, they can, if the process for producing them is resource-economical and if they are kept in a closed cycle. You can achieve both of this with technology from Krones and the services it provides. Starting with material-saving packaging design, then low-energy container production right through to recovery of used plastics: Krones offers PET bottles and other packages a chance for a sustainable, eco-compatible life-cycle – not only once, mind you, but again and again.
