Air and water cleaning systems are almost always used in beverage filling applications as well as most food and pharmaceutical operations to ensure food safety. These systems include inline ionized air cleaners, twist air rinsers, gripper rinsers, orbital rinsers, and nitrogen purge systems.
Ionized Air Rinsers
Air rinsers are used to remove cardboard dust and dirt that have settled during shipment from the container suppliers. A combination nozzle delivers short bursts of ionized air into the containers thereby removing the static charge on the container walls and suspending the contaminants in mid air. These contaminants are then simultaneously vacuumed out by this nozzle.
Designed to rinse clean empty bottles and jars prior to filling. This machine can use either clean air, ionized air, clean water, or a water-based cleaning solution and even distilled spirits. The unit will remove loose particulate or dust from a bottle and in some cases provide a chemical sanitation of the inside of the bottle. Most often used for glass containers where only wet rinsing can remove broken glass particles.
Twist Rinse cleaning system uses a motorized bottle feed belt and enclosed dedicated twist change parts to invert containers over an ionized air/vacuum station to remove dust and debris in a filling operation.
