The Gerolsteiner mineral water bottlers have started operation with one of the world’s most sophisticated bottling lines for returnable glass.

At the same time, Gerolsteiner has upsized its warehousing capacity for its products in returnable packs. With the new Krones bottling line and consumer-friendly packs, Gerolsteiner is blazing a trail for returnable glass as a packaging alternative to PET. The line handles both the new Gerolsteiner 1.0-litre returnable glass bottle introduced during the summer of 2010 and also the various sizes (0.25 litres, 0.5 litres, 0. 75 litres and 1.0 litre) of the Gerolsteiner catering-trade bottle. “The line’s tandem configuration ensures minimised legwork for the operators, while the high degree of automation cuts change-over times to maximise the bottling operation’s overall efficiency”, explains Technical Director Ulrich Rust. A total of 56,000 bottles can be filled per hour, twice as many as on the previous line.
