In the name of recycling: bottle washers
Today high outputs are to correspond to a high level of specialization in bottling processes
Today high outputs are to correspond to a high level of specialization in bottling processes and therefore the washing of recycled bottles is increasingly performed by technologically advanced machines .
In the beverage sector, automatic washing of recycled bottles has achieved remarkable levels of specializations so far. In this market field in particular Akomag, company of Soragna (Parma) can offer a broad variety of machines, such as bottle washers, rinsers and immersion sterilizing machines for glass and PET bottles as well as large bottles, crate washers, and numerous complementary machine accessories. Moreover, the company offers a broad range of bottle rinsers, whose capacity varies according to the model, however, from 500 to 60,000 pieces/h.
The modularity of all installations enables to increase the functions and the accuracy requested by adding special washing and sanitization operations, which includes automatic control of process parameters, safety systems, energy recovery, reduction of wastes, automatic sanitization of all the relevant parts in terms of hygiene.
AKOMAG’s product range includes the following:
For law capacity bottle washing, Akomag offers the line Genesi, whose compact size makes it ideal for any work environment. Designed upon specific customers’ requirements for law outputs, the line performs a simple though functional washing cycle, which enables to curb running costs (water, energy, detergents), while still obtaining excellent washing results and ensuring that the bottles are perfectly cleaned, their labels completely detached and their insides totally emptied.
Remarkable user-friendliness and easy maintenance help increase productivity and limit machine downtime.
The modularity of the GENESI series enables customers to tailor themselves their machines upon the different applications (water, wine, oil, beer, drinks).
For work cycle rationalization, AKOMAG produces the Hydra Series, consisting of fully automatic machines that enable to reduce the pollution deriving from the detergent bath and reducing consumption.
The tripe label-removal station assures that the labels are completely loosened from the bottles, while a rotating filter, extending the entire width of the machine, carries every last trace outside the machine.
The series of internal and external high-pressure detergent wash sprayings, performed using self-cleaning and self-centering rotating nozzles, completes the bottle washing process. A highly-effective alkalinity reduction station followed by a series of internal and external spray rinses, provide thorough bottle rinsing with low water consumption from the mains.
High production combine with utmost washing automation in the Hydra HP series. Although Hydra is highly sophisticated, just one operator is requested to remote control the whole washing cycle.
Outside washing tubes are designed as to reduce maintenance to minimum. However, disassembly and cleaning operations are very easy. It is possible to automatically vary the temperature of the tanks through a modulating proportional pneumatic system, which grants accuracy and safe operations. An electronic frequency changer enables just one operator to remote control the main motors of the HYDRA HP series.
Akomag has been committed to creating bottle washing machines for many years and the highly qualitative standard achieved in all its production stages, namely, advanced technology and timely after-sales service, have opened the company the way to many production facilities and given it the certainty to have manufactured a safe and quality machine fit for various requirements.
The company has been focused on this targets, from the design phase right to the research of the most innovative materials, and to the routine controls on products to be made.
Having this mission in mind, Akomag aims to improve itself and invests in quality with the knowledge to be doing a very good job.
