Different uses of fruit juice filling machine
The flow of fruit juice filling machine is basically similar. But because of the different properties of fruit juice or beverage, the filling machine and capper are also different. For example, a proper sterilizer can be added to the beer filling line. The corresponding capping machine is selected according to the different cover shape.
The boxes with empty bottles are stacked on the trays, which are sent from the conveyer belt to the unloading tray machine. The trays are discharged one by one, and the boxes are conveyed to the unloading machine with the conveyor belt. The empty bottles are removed from the boxes, and the empty boxes are sent to the washing machine through the conveyor belt. After cleaning, the empty boxes are cleaned and transported to the packing machine, so that the bottles with the fruit juice are loaded into them.
The empty bottles removed from the unloading machine are sent to the bottle washing machine by another conveyor belt for disinfection and cleaning. Tested by bottle inspecting machine, enter the filling machine and capping machine after meeting the cleaning standard. The juices are loaded into the bottles by the juice machine. The fruit juice bottle is sealed by the capping machine and conveyed to the labelling machine. After labeling, they are sent to the case packing machine and loaded into the box, then sent to the stacking pallet machine and sent to the warehouse.
TICO produces a variety of filling machines, including vacuum filling machine, atmospheric pressure filling machine and pressure filling machine.
Vacuum filling machine
The pressure in the bottle is lower than atmospheric pressure. The filling machine has the advantages of simple structure, high efficiency and wide adaptability to the viscosity of materials, such as oil, syrup, fruit wine, etc.
Atmospheric pressure filling machine
It is filled by liquid gravity under atmospheric pressure. This kind of filling machine is divided into regular filling and volume filling, only suitable for filling low viscosity gas-free liquids such as milk, wine and so on.
Pressure filling machine
Pressure filling machine is suitable for liquid filling with gas, such as beer, soda water, champagne and so on.
Filling modes in the production of juice drinks
Nowadays, the taste of juice and beverage is also becoming more and more diversified. The development of juice drink is full of frustrations, and it also puts forward a great test on the production line of juice drink. The diversified development of fruit juice is also manifested in filling and concentration differences. The filling methods of PET bottled and cartoned fruit juice drinks in beverage production lines on the market are mainly divided into aseptic cold filling and hot filling. Many consumers do not know much about these two ways of development.
Aseptic cold filling
The cold filling of fruit juice production line is to cool the product to ambient temperature after ultra high temperature sterilization. In the artificial sterile environment, fruit juice is filled into bottles or cartons that are sterilized with hydrogen peroxide. The bottle caps are also sterilized by hydrogen peroxide. Cold filling has little effect on product taste and nutritional quality. PET material is also used less, but equipment investment is about 1 times more than hot filling.
After the product was sterilized at high temperature, it was filled in the bottle at a temperature of about 90 degrees. After the lids are screwed up, the bottles and the covers are finally sterilized with the temperature of the material themselves. In this way, the product maintains a high temperature state for a long time, causing more damage to its taste and nutrition. Hot filling equipment is less invested.
