The Automatic Bottle Washing Machine has been designed and developed for washing 200ml/250ml/300ml soft drink bottles. The speed of the machine is 36 bottles per minute. An ideal compartmentalised machine, it has various wash stages. The machine is constructed of stainless steel, is robust and can withstand the vigour’s of continuous use. The unique design enables easy layman usage and maintenance.
A number of trays are provided. The trays are lightweight and designed such that bottles need not be kept one by one. The trays are directly overturned on to plastic crates containing the bottles. The bottles seat on PVC cups on the trays and the plastic crates are then removed. A Hydraulic system pushes the trays into the machine at set intervals. The machine consists of various compartments for different washes. The first section is the hot water Caustic Soda wash. In the second, third & fourth sections the bottles are washed in plain water. More sections can be added if required. Each section has its own monobloc set that pump the water in a high-speed jet. Rinser nozzles are kept below the bottles as well as above the bottles. In each section two trays consisting of 24 bottles are washed at once. The rinsed water falls into a stainless steel tank below and is recycled by the pump. A fine mesh of stainless steel is kept above the tanks and all dirt and dust is collected. The meshes can be easily removed and cleaned at regular intervals.
Water can be conveniently filled or drained from each section. A panel board provided has switches for each of the pumps and heaters. The required water temperature can be set. Rubber insulated glass windows are provided in each section to view the cleaning processes. Bottles are rinsed twice in each section and thus even the dirtiest bottles are thoroughly cleaned.
