Mechanical filler providing high-speed precision filling and tool-free format changeovers.
TOP 3 BENEFITS:
Great versatility is the hallmark of the Eurostar HS. The machine comes in both glass and PET bottle versions and is designed to fill carbonated and still beverages, beer and wine.
Eurostar HS is based on proven technology guaranteeing reliability, high performance, product quality and easy sanitization. As the name “HS” suggests, this machine offers high-speed precision filling and, in the case of beer, minimal oxygen in the bottle.
The machine is designed to be washed and sanitized in a closed loop, with dummy bottles applied to the filling valves. All parts in contact with the product are treated in the sanitization cycle. On request, an external sanitization system can be provided for the filler carousel and base frame. Any residue is removed by foaming products and water rinsing.
The mechanical filling valve has an extremely simple design with a limited number of components and gaskets. This guarantees easy sanitization and minimizes maintenance.
Depending on the product and container to be filled, various versions of the valve are available:
The bottle lifts are raised from above and are located inside the carousel where they are well protected. The design of the bottle lift makes for easier, faster assembly and dismantling, as these operations are carried out with the bottle lift completely assembled.
If a bottle bursts, the fragments of glass and product fall directly to the floor without coming into contact with the sliding parts of the bottle lift.
At the same time, an automatic wash-off system is switched on to spray high-pressure water jets onto the bottle lift plates, the filling valves and the centering bells which are lifted into the wash-off area, where any remaining glass debris is completely removed.
The format changeover is completely tool free, and is performed with a quick turn of the handles of the starwheel and guides. Optional guides quick changeover system with a quarter turn.
On request, the filler for glass bottles can be equipped with an automatic height adjustment system to adapt to the various bottle formats. This feature guarantees high precision, repeatability, easy operation and minimal changeover times.
The crowner offers both speed and flexibility as it can be adjusted according to the application.
As an alternative or in addition to the crowner, one or more cappers can be installed to handle all types of screw caps:
This foaming system is installed on fillers dedicated to beer. Residual air is eliminated from the bottle neck by injecting high pressure water before crowning. As an option, this system can be automated.
The PLC software adjusts the pressure according to a pressure/speed graph set by the operator interface terminal. By memorizing the graphs, proper foaming is guaranteed in all working conditions.
The system can also be integrated with an automatic device controlling the foam water temperature.
