The SEMIAUTOMATIC QUADRIBLOCK assembles in a single machine the functions of bottles rinser, filling, corking and wire-hooding.
It is suitable for the bottling in glass containers with a diameter ranging from 55 to 115 mm and a maximum height of 375 mm.
The isobaric filler is suitable for the bottling with effervescent drinks and, on demand, with still drinks.MORE INFO AND DETAILS ON OUR ISOBARIC FILLING SYSTEMS
As to the effervescent drinks, the filling of the product obtained through the Classical method/Champenoise method (fermentation of the wine in the bottle) is to be excluded. In fact with this method it is necessary to use another machine that can perform the disgorging, dosifying (additon of the liqueur) and final leveling (machine available on demand).
Therefore, the filler is suitable to fill products obtained according to the Charmat method (fermentation of the wine in tanks/autoclaves), and other products such as cider, beer, etc.
According to the product to be bottles, the machine can be equipped with the pre-evacuation option (creation of the vacuum in the bottle before the filling) (at cost , see Options).
After adding fittings and electro-valves to every single valve, the pre-evacuation is obtained bringing the bottle in compensation with the filling valve, after that a vacuum pump sucks the air contained in the bottle.
Then, with the valve opening throttle, the CO2 is injected in the bottle so that both pressures go in compensation. Then the filling of the product starts.
Option recommended for beer and for all products with the same requirements.
The isobaric filler works fully automatically so the operator needs to perform only the loading and unloading of the bottle holding cup.
The filling valve, designed to avoid the foaming of the product, guarantees the maximum fluidity with a completely automatic leveling system.
The machine is equipped with 4 filling valves that enable filling two bottles at a time, so, while the machine performs the filling on one side, on the other side the bottle can be unloaded and loaded.
The filler is equipped with no-return valve 1” in aisi 316 stainless steel (it prevents the return of the wine into the tank and the consequent foaming).
The corker, made of steel and equipped with a safety device, closes with natural champagne corks and is suitable for small or medium productions. By request and with the suitable adaptation kit (supplied at cost, see Options) it is possible to apply natural wine corks with the same turret.
The closing system of the corking unit consists of four hardened steel jaws ground with centesimal tolerances and can be easily demounted for cleaning and sterilization. It can treat corks with 30 mm max. ø and 52 mm height. After the bottle is put on the holding cup, the machine is operated through a two-hand control and stops at the end of every cycle. The distribution of the corks is automatic. The corks are loaded manually through a steel tube.
The wire-hooding machine is suitable for the application of the wire-hoods and their closure. It is possible to apply the following types of wire-hoods: 4-leg wire-hood with cap and 4-leg wire-hood without cap.
Its operation system is mechanical and pneumatic; the wire-hoods are loaded on the traditional stick which is then taken out (capacity of the stick: 20 wire-hoods).
The wire-hoods are distributed in automatic. The bottle is positioned on a suitable support and the cycle is started through a 2-hand control.
When the cycle is completed the machine stops and no part remains in movement.
The hour productions of the various units are different.
The filler can reach a production of 200/300 bottles per hour (with optimal conditions of the product which is under constant pressure and is pushed into the filling tank from the tank under pressure or through a mono or membrane pump connected to the electrovalves of the machine).
The corker /wire-hooding machine, on the contrary, can reach a production of 800 bottles per hour.
Both data depend on the ability of the operator.
The front safety panel prevents any accident due to breakages.
By request the machine can be supplied in wheeled version.
By request the machine is available also in the version consisting of filler + corker for crown corks (for effervescent and still drinks to be packaged with crown caps).
The 4-4-1-1/co model is completely manufactured of stainless steel, a material with high compatibility with food products and easy to be cleaned.
Some parts are made of plastic material or rubber, also these materials are certified for food usage or compatible with that use, the panels at the entrance to the working zone are of shock-resistant or high-resistance transparent material, which allows the operator controlling the working process.
All components of the machine can be easily inspected to facilitate the cleaning and maintenance operations so guaranteeing a long life.
