Rinsing turret – 5 grippers

Rinsing turret supplied with 5 grippers with standard fixed nozzles. The bottle gripper pads are an extra-rapid assemble and disassemble type. The rinser is supplied with a single stage rinsing treatment.

This machine is equipped with a device for detection of the bottle on the conveyor (NO BOTTLE ON CONVEYOR/NO SPRAY): it consists of a photocell which stops the machine and closes the rinser electro valve in case of bottle lack in order to avoid light sprays.

Electro-valve to control the rinsing fluid. The valve stops the treatment fluid flow every time the machine stops and starts it at the machine re-starting.

Pressure regulator for the treatment fluid. 

Filter for rinsing solution, complete with container and cartridge.

Manual turret height adjustment (electric regulation available on demand)



Counter-pressure filling turret, supplied with 5 ELECTROPNEUMATIC VALVES suitable for filling beer, into glass bottle.

Manual filling turret height adjustment (electric regulation available on demand)

The filling turret has a tank with a mirror polished internal surface and a level control probe. 



The filling turret has a tank with a mirror polished internal surface and a level control probe. 

The filler is suitable for counter pressure filling with double pre-evacuation. Here under you can find the filling steps

  1.  After the lifting of the bottle, the vacuum pump starts (first pre-evacuation)
  2. The vacuum pipe is closed and then the injection of CO2 starts
  3. we close the CO2 injection and we cycle the vacuum pump (second pre-evacuation)
  4. the vacuum pipe stays open for a very short time while the CO2 is opening and then it is closed
  5. when the pressure inside the bottle is the same as the pressure in the upper tank, the filling valves is open and the filling starts
  6. when the filling is finished, after a short pause, the snift is open for degassing of the bottle

All of the above mention cycles are adjustable and recordable in the PLC so that they are used in future



Automatic corking turret suitable for crown cork application on glass bottles, supplied with:

  • automatic vibrating sorter, made of AISI 304 stainless steel; equipped with caps level monitoring device;
  • chute equipped with cap presence monitoring device, made of AISI 304 stainless steel;
  • Nr. 1 corking head with pressure-closing cone for permanent crown cork deformation.



The machine has a central star that conveys the bottle. In turn, the bottles are positioned 5 per time under filling nozzles. 

Machine speed electronically adjusted by means of inverter.

The unit is also supplied with in and out sensors for automatic start/stop: they stop the machine in case of lack of bottle on inlet conveyor or in case of bottle jam on exit conveyor and they provide the automatic re-start.



The turrets are assembled on a unique basement.

Machine frame (pos. 1 in the picture beside) is made of stainless steel AISI 304 and machine support plate (pos. 2 in the picture beside) is made of painted iron covered with stainless steel AISI 304 

The basement is complete with supports adjustable in height. 

The machine is already provided with stainless steel conveyor belt without conveyor drive and recovery grooves of the liquid accidentally overflow.

According to CE rules, the monoblock is equipped with safety guards, realized in stainless steel AISI 304 and safety glass.

Rotation of roundabout and star devices

Rotation of the roundabout and the star devices by means of gears or reduction gears driven by gear- motors in oil-bath.

Automatic releases on the central unit and on the star devices for an immediate stoppage in case of a wrong manoeuvre.

The monoblock is also supplied with in and out sensors for automatic start/stop: they stop the machine in case of lack of bottle on inlet conveyor or in case of bottle jam on exit conveyor and they provide the automatic re-start.


Electrical plant

Electrical controls in a box made of insulating stainless steel.



In additional the machine is provided with

  • Conveyor at the inlet and exit of the machine, connected with gear but without motor. Is enough to install a gear motor at the exit and to make work also the inlet conveyor.
  • Inlet air group complete with filter and lubricant. Valve for total unload of the air is included.
  • Inlet for rinsing water and CO2 provided with globe valves made in stainless steel.
  • Product inlet complete with pneumatic butterfly valve.
  • Panel with s/steel manometer and pressure regulation for lifting jacks and counter pressure in the upper tank.
  • Upper tank provided with s/steel manometer and thermometer.
  • vacuum gauge on the vacuum tank.
  • Pneumatic element SMC
  • Gear and reducer made in Italy.
  • PLC and touch screen Siemens.
  • Sensor for presence/lack of the bottle in the filler. If a bottle is missing, the machine will not fill the bottle to avoid any product loss.
  • 3 color light for status indication.
  • In the upper part of the machine (except the motor) are built in AISI 304 or acetal resin. PVC is not used.


New software for machine working: during the start of the machine is possible to made some test filling to check the setup. When everything is ok, simply pushing the start bottom, the machine will work in automatic mode. At the end of production, whit the emptying bottom, the machine will work also with no bottle at the inlet, filling the last bottle in the central star
