Soft drinks supplier saved from sticky situation. (News & Installations).

A drying system from air movement specialist Secomak is being used by Barr's bottling plant in Scotland on bottles of soft drinks.

When filling bottles with soft drinks, the product sometimes fobs over on to the outside, as a result, every bottle after filling and capping has to be cleaned externally with water.

For the bottles to be labelled successfully the bottles have to be completely dried; Powerstrip was originally introduced to dry 21. PET bottles of Orangina but Barr has now decided to extend the treatment to a second line producing 250ml and 500ml PET bottles.

Secomak air knives use low pressure, high velocity air to remove moisture, dust and waste material from almost any type of surface.

The machine is sturdy and requires little maintenance and as a result of the installation the 21. bottles are now dried at a rate of 300 per minute.
