The "COMET NG" unit is a stand-alone machine handling filling and capping using a range of different methods: T-Corks, Vinoseal (all closures).
Produced in stainless steel, it provides the highest efficiency for sterilising, cleaning and maintenance.
Linking a new glass rinser and labelling machine is very simple to do, by either making a direct connection or using a bottle diverter.
The COMET bottling unit production rate can vary from 1,000 to 3,200 bottles/hour (0.75 litres) depending on the model selected.
Bottle selection at inlet is done using an Archimedes' screw. The bottles are routed to the filler chute by 8, 11, 14 or 16 nozzles, height adjustable using an electric control panel (180 to 380mm).
How is bottle filling optimised using the COMET NG group?
It offers a simple gravity filling principle, with no suction, no contact with ambient air, no overfilling and using assisted gravity with gentle vacuum (depending on the liquid recommendation).
A top feed either fills by gravity or using an external pump connected directly to the unit.
A pneumatically operated solenoid valve is built into the liquid inlet (requiring access to compressed air). The head space level in the bottle can be adjusted with millimetric accuracy using the electric control panel.
Bottles are then transported by conveyor to the "revolver" capping column which can handle several different capping methods (including corks, crown caps and screw caps) using one single rotation.
It offers electric height adjustment (180 to 380mm).
The corking cycles are managed electronically ensuring corks are tightened slowly followed by rapid insertion to secure them. The corking head includes a stainless-steel compressor with four corking jaws that can be easily detached (filling system). A high-performance vacuum pump draws air from the neck of the bottle, prior to the cork being secured. The cork hopper fitted with a dust collector is positioned on the top of the column.
The electronic speed control allows the production rate to be accurately set (from 0 to 3,200 bottles/hour depending on the model).
We also offer precision monitoring via a control panel which tracks bottles throughout the production process. A 4-line digital screen displays:
