Sidel Kohlox[TM] grease-free technology.
PET liquid packaging solutions specialist Sidel has added Kohlox grease-free technology to all its 2.5-litre moulds as standard. Kohlox is a thermo-composite material that self-lubricates, meaning less time spent greasing and degreasing and more time spent manufacturing. The material also helps improve hygiene and reduces wear and tear during production, saving both time and money.
The implementation of Kohlox means that moulds stay clean, which means that bottles stay clean as well. It also contributes to a longer cam life within a blower through lighter mould bases. Furthermore, the benefits of increased hygiene and reduced maintenance can be further enhanced on a blower with the fitting of a 'diamond-like carbon' coating treatment on the mould locking pins.
"Beverage producers around the world have been benefitting from the grease-free Kohlox technology for mould sizes of 2-litres and below for the past few years," explained Gilles Leroux, Product Manager at Sidel. "We are now delighted to introduce the new technology for larger mould sizes, so more beverage producers and their products can also benefit from this technology."
"When our moulds are combined with Sidel's packaging design expertise and fast line conversion services, beverage producers can get a quick and complete concept-to-consumer solution for new or updated beverage products," added Delphine Hallot, Director for Line Conversions & Moulds at Sidel.
