DETAILS OF OPERATOIN


Step-1 - Loading of empty bottles on infeed conveyor for rinsing :
The empty bottles are loaded in the slot which holds the neck of the bottle into the infeed Air Conveyor manually. In the Infeed Conveyor, the Blower blows the bottles into the neck of the Rotar. There is a blower at the end of the conveyor, which blows the air at high pressure through the nozzles provided in the inside of the conveyor. The bottles are held by the neck and air is blown at a pressure on the neck of the bottles. Due to this air pressure on the neck of the bottles, the bottles is pushed forward and into the neck of the Rotar.
The suction of the blower can be throttled to increase or decrease the speed at which the bottle travels forward. The conveyor has to be always full of bottles when the machine is running.
TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEMS ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN
The bottle does not move freely. Check the neck holding strips for any damage which may be obstructing the bottles.
Suction is less. Air Pressure is less. Air Pressure to be adjusted.

Step-2 - Rinsing :
The rinsing rotar has ten rinsing heads. The rinsing rotar has ten mechanical valves which open when the mouth of the bottle is pressed against it and stops when the bottle moves away from it. S.S. Pump and Tank is provided for rinsing.
TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEMS ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN
Sometimes the valve may get stuck and water jets out continuously. Open the valve, clean it and fit it again.
Timing goes out. Open the adjusting screws and set properly.

Step-3 - Filling :
This consists of four filling stations. Filling is done by four Solenoid valves, which will open when the neck of the bottle presses against the lever. When the neck presses against the lever it activates a Proximity Switch above, which triggers the timer. The timer activates the solenoid valves and water starts flowing into the bottle. The filling stops as soon as the set time is attained by the timer. Then the bottle moves forward to the next filling station. The filling level can be controlled by increasing or decreasing the time on the timer.
TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEMS ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN
Filling is not in one level. The level of the water in the Buffer Tank has to be maintained at a constant level by overflowing the excess water back into the product water tank. If the level of water goes up and down, the filling level in the bottle will also become more or less. Hence level has to be maintained very strictly.
Step-4 – Cap Pick Up :
Immediately after the fourth filling station, there is a cap chute above the filling rotor. The cap chute is provided with a UV lamp, which sterilizes the caps and kills the bacteria present on the cap. There is a vibrator with a S.S. bowl on top of the filling rotor. The caps have to be put in the vibrator manually, every 15 to 20 minutes when the machine is running. The vibrator sends the caps down the chute, in one orientation.
TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEMS ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN
Caps are not coming from the vibrator.       Check the caps.
  1. There may be damaged caps in the vibrator or too much flux of flash in the caps.
  2. Cap size may not be constant.


Step-5 - Capping :
The capper rotates and also moves up and down. When the bottle with the cap stops under the capper, the capper will come down and twist and push the cap unto the bottle.
TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEMS ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN
Caps not getting tightened.
  1. Increase speed of capper by interchanging capping gears above capper.
  2. Increase pressure slightly while capping i.e. about 0.5m/m – 1m/m.
  3. To increase pressure, loosen capping pulley screw below machine and tap the capping shaft slightly down (0.5m/m – 1m/m) measure with Vernier Caliper.


Step-6 – Transfer to offtake conveyor and visual inspection :
After capping, the bottle is transferred onto the offtake conveyor. On the offtake conveyor, the bottle passes in front of an inspection light. The inspector inspects visually whether there is any dirt or foreign particles in the bottle. The offtake conveyor has delrin slats which ride on wear strips, to achieve noiseless running and prevent wear and tear. The wear strips are held firmly on the conveyor body by countersunk screws. The offtake conveyor is driven by ¼ HP, 3 phase gear motors having an output speed of 33 rpm. The drive to the conveyor shaft is given by 3/8” pitch roller chain. The drive motor is mounted on a plate which can side up and down in a slot. This ensures that the chain runs tight and also provides jerk free running of the belt. The drive chain should be oiled daily and the alignment between the drive and driven sprockets maintained. The sprockets are tightened on the respective shafts by alan cap screws which must be tightened fully. The chain has been provided with a chain guard whereas the motor has a motor guard to ensure against accidental entry of water. The conveyor assembly rests on four screws which can be moved up and down according to the height of the bottles. Tension bolts provided at the idler end of each conveyor keep the slat belt tight during running.


Step-7 – Insertion of sleeve and labels manually :
After inspection, the inspector places the cap sleeves. The bottle moves ahead and label is put on the bottle by another person. Then the bottle passes through the shrink tunnel where the sleeve and label is shrunk tightly onto the bottle.


Step-8 – Shrink Tunnel :
There are six heaters of .75KW each which are controlled by a temperature controller. You can increase or decrease temperature for required result. In the shrink tunnel, the sleeves shrink due to heat and grip the bottles.
TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEMS ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN
Temperature is not being maintained. Check thermocouple (Refer electrical drawings)


Step-9 – Manual unloading of filled bottles :
When the bottle is out of the shrink tunnel, it is manually unloaded from the machine and put into the cartons.
