45012 TESTING MACHINE
The patented testing machine 45012 has been designed to pre-vent defective bottles from reaching the filler or from breaking during the filling cycle.
A bottle burst, especially during bottling of sparkling products (e.g. sparkling wines or beer) causes a stop of the supply line in order to remove glass fragments. This inconvenience represents a food- related hazard and causes wear of the filling valves and an increase in maintenance costs. The testing machine has three important functions:
• Sterile air inlet into the bottle at a higher pressure (ma-ximum 8 bar) than the bottling one with subsequent burst inside the machine in case of bottle structural defect;
• Pressure maintenance to check the bottle resistance;
• Bottleneck checking by a tracer to verify if the internal dia-meter is too small or has an occlusive defect.
