Super Air Knives Dry PET Bottles
Customer produces and bottles various beverages including wine and grape juice. One juice bottling line uses PET plastic bottles that need to be dried after a washing tunnel, before moving on to the labeler. The bottles are about 12" tall. Two Model 110012SS 12" (305mm) Stainless Steel Super Air Knives were mounted vertically on either side of the conveyor with the airflow at a 45-degree angle opposite the direction of travel of the bottles. This configuration was able to dry the entire outer surface of the bottle, allowing for proper label adhesion without disrupting the process, and dramatically reducing the number of rejects.
