The XGF 16-16-5 Tri-Block integrates rinsing, filling and capping on one machine. It is suitable for bottling non-carbonated beverages.

Empty bottles can be fed into the machine via either slat-belt conveyor or air conveyor. A Bottle Intake Worm separates the bottles and feeds them into a star-wheel.

A rinsing carousel grips bottles from the star-wheel and inverts them through 180º and a rinsing media (supplied by the customer) is sprayed into the bottles. The rinsing nozzles are specially designed to eliminate any dead corners inside the bottles during rinsing. After leaving the rinsing section, the bottles continue to move upside down for a while to drain excess water before reverting back into the upright position.

The clean bottles are passed to the filling carousel via a transit star-wheel. Gravity-filling is used to fill the product into the bottles. Different filling levels can be obtained by adding or removing spacers on the filling vales. After filling the bottles are transferred to the capping section.

Adjustable magnetic torque heads are utilized to apply constant and precise torque to the screw caps. These torque heads are maintenance free and prevent damage to caps. Caps are orientated in a Cap Unscrambler installed on the top of the Capping machine and fed down a Cap Chute to a Cap Feeding Plate. A Pick and Place system is being used and the capping chuck collects the caps from the capping plate and screws them onto the bottles. A no bottle no cap system is incorporated as a standard. An Optional Cap Elevator can be used to feed caps to the Cap Unscrambler. The Cap Elevator is controlled by the machine’s PLC. Sports Caps can also be handled by adjusting the Cap Chute and use some Change Parts.

The machine is controlled by a PLC and touch screen. The production speed of the machine is adjustable.

All material that has direct contact with the product is made of food grade ANSI 304 Stainless Steel.
