The customer´s Hansa A100/14SV model was an older O+H filler with a filling capacity of 24,000 bottles per hour, which was configured for glass bottles. This machine was however already processing PET disposable bottles. Since these bottles are naturally very light and soft, there had always been great problems with the handling of the PET bottles within the filler.
The task for FAS Füllanlagenservice was basically to completely convert the machine to neck handling. In doing so, all bottle guides as well as the other attachments on the front table should be manufactured of stainless steel. Furthermore, the press-on cylinders, which had previously been installed, should be dispensed with.
The following conversion measures were executed in a time frame of only just 2 weeks:
As four different bottle formats should be filled, easy to interchange plastic segments were installed in different colours. Switching over to another bottle now takes only a few minutes.
