Bottle Filling
and Sealing Machine

A logical consequence

Finnah offers three Standard types of bottle filling and sealing machines for common plastic bottles, the difference being in the width of the machine. This makes it possible, depending on the dimension of the bottle, to cover an output range up to 46,000 cups per hour. Another machine type permits the combined filling of glass and plastic bottles.

The bottle filler is the logical technical development of the cup filler – tried and tested know-how has been improved upon:

  • Modular system
  • Drive concept
  • Ergonomic construction
  • Ease of use and maintenance
  • Fully aseptic, optimal sterilisation and cleaning times

The compact linear bottle filling and sealing machines are space-saving and flexible, especially with regard to the filling of small batches:

  • The key-hole principle, a special bottle support system for the transport through the machine, makes it possible to handle two alternative bottle neck dimensions on one machine without requiring format changeover parts – only programmatic settings are necessary.
  • The transport by means of caskets makes is possible to handle different bottle sizes regardless of the neck diameter.
  • The simultaneous filling of several flavours facilitates the fulfilment of special retail packaging requirements considerably.

Bottles, on the other hand, are different, and require special treatment. Several solutions for the bottle input and output are available. And even regarding bottle closure the customer is spoiled for choice; Finnah offers solution that only consider a sealing or only a screw cap, but the combination of both closures in one machine is also possible.

Furthermore Finnah offers another machine type which permits the combined filling of glass and plastic bottles - even under aseptic conditions.

Depending on the defined product characteristics as well as the selected distribution channel and the desired minimum shelf life, the „correct“ clean room technology of the machine is determined and thus a hygiene class. The hygiene classes applied by us comply with those defined by the VDMA (German Engineering Federation) and have to meet defined demands on machine an process technology.

A bottle filler can be open, low-germ or aseptic in design. The choice of the sterilisation system to be used in each case is matched to the product and the packaging materials. The achieved killing rate of up to log 5 is regularly confirmed by independent institutes.

For bottle fillers the patented H2O2-aerosol-method for the inline sterilisation of all packaging materials is applied.

In order to protect the sterile packaging material and the product to be filled against the contaminated ambient atmosphere, the machines are protected with a tunnel from the bottle station up to the completely tight closure. In the tunnel directed sterile air flows prevent a recontamination by ambient air.

Procedural parameters such as consumption of H2O2, reaction times, temperatures etc. are continuously recorded by the operation and machine data acquisition and can be readjusted at any time if required. For known packaging material preset parameters are stored in the recipe Management.

The dosing procedure is a process that involves the interplay of exact mechanical precision and perfectly coordinated servo and automation technology. Finnah achieves this with three established systems that are always kept up to date:

  • Piston-valve doser
  • Piston-pipe doser
  • Doser based on inductive flow measurement

All types of free-flowing and highly viscous products, also with particles like fruit pieces or pulp in fruit juices, can be filled gently and specifically; hot or cold filling is neither a problem. Special dosing nozzles are available for different dosing applications, which are specially selected depending on the product and dosing pattern.

The simultaneous filling of different flavours offers the advantage, especially in the case of bottle fillers, that the fulfilment of special packaging requirements by the retail trade is considerably facilitated.

Finnah dosing systems are CIP and SIP capable and low maintenance by design. Furthermore Finnah dosing systems also help to increase the valuable productive core time:

  • Sterile water supply being Independent from the process.
  • Nozzle changes can be performed by way of a fast-change mechanism.

Our own material selection for all product-contacting machine components ensures that the product to be filled retains its specific properties during the filling process.
