Spectrapak 5000 Turnkey Small Format In-Line Bottling System

NOTICE: if after reviewing our website bottling information you decide you want to build a system and need initial design and cost information, CLICK HERE.

 
AUTOMATIC BOTTLE FEED SYSTEM

 

To begin the bottling process, bottles are placed on the 48" Feed Table.

The Feed Table includes specially designed bottle guides to help keep the bottles feeding onto the conveyor without the risk of the bottles tipping over.

BOTTLE RINSING

 

The Spectrapak 5000 system can rinse up to 85 bottles per minute, ranging in size from 12 oz(335ml) up to 1 gallon(3.8 liters) in virutally any shape:round, square-plastic or glass.

Optical sensors ensure smooth and trouble-free operation while the digital LED display offers precise operating instructions and immediate troubleshooting information at a quick glance.

If the flow of bottles in interrupted, the system will pause automatically until the supply of bottles is resumed.

The bottles are fully inverted and rinsed with product water or air. High pressure nozzles direct the water inside the bottles for an effective rinsing operation.

Allow about 15% "overhead" for rinse water if calculating total product water needs for a specific bottling configuration.

FILLER CONTROL PANEL

 

 

The Bottle Filler Control Panel allows for quick assessment and/or adjustment of the operation of the system.

SECURE LOCKING OF BOTTLES DURING FILL OPERATION

As bottles enter the filling area they are counted by a pair of optical sensors.

The unique locking mechanism on the Bottle Filler ensures bottles are correctly positioned to minimize spillage of water during the filling process

The filler, as other system components, is constructed of 304 polished stainless steel, solid-state electronics and food grade approved materials to provide for years of durable, reliable and trouble-free operation.

LOADING BOTTLE CAPS INTO CAP HOPPER

 

 

The Spectrapak 5000 System includes a large-capacity Cap Hopper that holds a full carton of caps.

Te top of the Cap Hopper is located at approximately 48"(1.88m) above floor level for easy loading of caps.

AUTOMATED LABELING PROCESS

 

 

The labeling process incorporates the Original label Spool, a series of Roller Tension Pins and a Spool Take-Up Wheel for label dispensing.

BOTTLE CAP SORTING AND PREPARATION

After the caps are sorted, they are conveyed to the Final Cap Application Chute where they await placement onto the filled bottles.

The system can be configured to operate effectively with either 28mm or 38 mm flat and sports type caps.

BOTTLE CAP APPLICATION

 

 

(8) As the caps are placed on the bottle, they are slightly pressed onto the bottle but are not completely tightened.

PREPARATION FOR BOTTLE CAP TIGHTENING

 

 

Once moved into position, the bottles are held in position to prevent them from spinning during the cap tightening process.

PRECISE CINCHING OF BOTTLE CAP

 

 

A unique feature of the Cap Tightener is the adjustable clutch control mechanism allowing the operator to select the desired torque on the cap.

FINISHED PRODUCT READY FOR PACKAGING

The filled and capped bottles are then moved down the conveyor for collection onto an inline collection conveyor or a rotary accumulation table. The bottles are now ready for case packing in conventional corrugated boxes or being shrinkwrapped.
