Our Bottling Line
Our 800 bottles per hour, fully automated bottling line can meet all your bottling requirements. Continuous investments and upgrades ensures our line is one of the best bottling lines in the UK. Bottling both 19 litre and 11 litre bottles, the bottling line ensures our Natural Mineral Water reaches you in a totally hygienic and fresh condition. All key components are maintained by our highly trained staff through our HACCP management programme, with the support of our external suppliers.
The line was constructed by Quadrant equipment ltd and consists of;
- An automated cap remover
- A twin head leak detector
- A twin head VOC detector (sniffer)
Before moving onto the main machine….
It’s a 800BPH fully automated and PLC driven neck fed 19/11 litre washer filler capper consisting of;
- A 4 stage 62 degree 700l chemical hot wash
- A 2 stage 240l product water rinse
- A 2 stage 240l ozone injected water sterilization wash
- and a final pure product water rinse
Each stage take just 18 seconds to cycle a row of 4 bottles. Filling is done by 4 multi stage invertor driven fill pumps to give variable fill rates as required fed by a 700l header tank. Capping is a fully automated hopper feed system with ozone misting to sterilize caps before sealing. Loading is dealt with by a Motoman UP165 XRC industrial robot which loads bottles using a suction cup lifting system fed by a fully automated roller driven rack loader.
