Food and beverage containers need to be cleaned with air and water before filled to guarantee safety and meet regulations. But cleaning the inside of bottles of all shapes and sizes isn’t an easy task. Cleaning by hand is out of the question if you want to maintain the speed necessary for optimal profits, which means you need to invest in machinery that can accomplish the cleaning in an efficient and timely manner. What options do you have?
Ionized Air Rinsers
Ionized air contains oxygen with an electrical charge that is either negative (due to extra electrons) or positive (due to less electrons than normal). Air with a negative charge naturally attracts dust particles and pollutants in the air in order to create a clean and pure enclosed environment. Ionized air rinsers in particular are effective in removing cardboard dust and dirt that commonly settle during container shipments. This type of machine works by delivering short bursts of ionized air into the containers to remove static charge, suspend contaminants in mid air, and vacuum them out.
Using either clear air, ionized air, clean water, or a water-based cleaning solution, a gripper rinser simply rinses clean empty bottles before they are filled. This type of machine is best for glass containers that require a wet rinsing to loosen broken glass particles and remove them permanently.
As the name suggests, a twist rinse cleaning system utilizes a motorized bottle feed belt and twisting mechanism to spin containers and bottles upside down. This allows the containers to be ionized and vacuumed to remove all impurities before the filling process begins.
All three of these options are excellent choices to ensure that all containers and bottles are completely purified and cleaned before being filled with food or drink products. It’s vital to invest in trusted machinery so customers don’t receive dirty bottles and form a bad opinion of any company’s products.
