Achieve premium status with KronesPosted on November 1st, 2016 in News
The trend towards premiumisation of beverages, in particular healthy, functional beverages, has meant beverages need special protection during processing and packaging, as well as extended shelf life. Australian Beverage company Made, for example, uses a state-of-the-art Krones machine in its Gippsland, Victoria plant to achieve premium status. Cold-fill processing, in-line PET bottle blow moulding technology and multiple labelling options give this company the edge, and it’s able to label 12,000 bottles per hour.
The new and improved Krones Lavatec D4/D5 series
The new and improved Krones Lavatec D4/D5 series pays heed to this motto more consistently than ever. The Krones bottle washer surprises with its thrifty water and energy budget. And it proves that “highest-quality hygiene“ can be achieved without a “chemical cudgel”. Lavatec‘s economical treatment of resources is due to its clever construction as a double-end machine with vertical loops and continuous debris removal. This is explained precisely on the following pages.
- Highest degree of hygiene
Construction according to the double-end principle and clean design assures maximum hygiene and safety.
- Safe operation
Thanks to its improved mechanics and continuous debris removal, Lavatec operates safely and reliably even in 24-hour operation cycles.
- Less water and fewer chemical additives
The continuous debris removal and the multiple-bath design with vertical loops result in enormous savings with respect to the consumption of water and chemicals.
- Efficient use of energy
The heating system supplies the best results in heat transmission and reduces energy costs substantially.
- Gentle transport of the bottles
Patented carrier systems guide the bottles gently and safely through the machine. The discharge is effected without containers falling and with little noise. Synchronous drives and chain rollers with plastic bushings guarantee the accurate transport of the bottles.
- Relief of the operating staff
The inside of the machine is easily accessible and can be cleaned in an optimum manner.
