Small pet bottle filling technology of Pepsi Cola

Pepsi Cola's small pet bottle filling process

the first batch of Pepsi Cola products in small pet bottles were rolled off the production/distribution plant of Pepsi bottling ventures in Raleigh, North Carolina, in July 2002. The plant invested US $40million and covered an area of 20000 square feet. At the end of that year, the output of the four packaging lines reached 24million boxes, and by 2010, the production capacity can be increased to 30million boxes. These four lines produce more than 250 inventory units, including a 12 ounce filling line with 1600 cans per minute, a 1-liter, 2-liter and 3-liter pet filling line with 40 bottles per minute, a filling line with 1100 bottles per minute for 12, 16, 20 and 24 oz and 500 ml PET bottles, and a "bag in box" packaging line with 12 bags per minute

the automatic destacker sweeps the pre labeled packaging bottles into the batch conveyor and sends the packaging bottles to the automatic stacking platform

pbv was founded in 1999. One of the main purposes of building this new factory is to produce bottled water with the Aquafina trademark, which is the fastest growing trademark in the Pepsi family. Bottled water is the fastest-growing product in the U.S. beverage industry. This market is very cost sensitive. In order to gain competitiveness, PBV needs its own high-speed production plant. In addition to Aquafina, other well-known brands produced by these two PBV factories also include Mountain Dew, Sierra mist, dietpepsi, Lipton brisk, fruitworks, Dr. Pepper BMW's new 7-series sedan, which advocates weight reduction of the whole car nbsp; Carbon fiber materials R, Hawaiian punch, Sunkist and nugrape are widely used

the new factory features a clean enclosed space designed and produced by ICS international. These spaces respectively contain the cleaning, capping and filling systems on the pet line. In older beverage filling plants, the traditional filling room is designed as a large room with sanitary finish, strong drainage system and temperature control system, which is convenient for operation and cleaning. It is said that the construction and cleaning costs of the old filling line are very expensive. Moreover, because all filling machines are placed in one room and use the common heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, the pollution of one filling machine may spread to the adjacent filling equipment

the enclosed room is designed with epoxy floor, slightly inclined, inclined to a stainless steel drainage tank, and has a complete air quality control system. The walls and ceilings of the enclosed room are insulated sandwich plates, which convert plastic bottle waste into pet aerogel gel. The inside and outside are stainless steel panels, and the middle is filled with polyurethane foam. The enclosed room is a self-supporting structure, using module panels to achieve the shortest installation time and the smallest amount of civil engineering on site. All pipe and conduit openings through the roof and ceiling are properly sealed to ensure the air tightness of the compartment. The cleaning room is equipped with complete lighting, access control, air filtration, air conditioning and air exhaust system

the air filter device maintains the pressure in the enclosed room to prevent external air from entering, and ensures 40 air changes per hour. The filter unit is also equipped with a cooling coil to cool the membrane air for seawater desalination treatment in summer. The filtration device has three filtration stages: rough filtration, bag filtration and hep. At present, the annual production capacity of graphene in the world reaches 100 tons, and the average air quality is 1000. Normally, the air discharged from the enclosed room is discharged into the surrounding processing plant. However, in order to prevent the air with sugar or ozone from being discharged into the surrounding area of Pepsi factory, ICS adds an air extractor to suck the air out of the enclosed room and transport it outside the factory

the bottles on the wide conveyor are distributed to two small conveyors for delivery to the machine producing 6-bottle packaging

Vincent Michel, sales manager of ICs, said, "each enclosed room is specially designed to seal the filling system as close as possible. This limits the amount of air near the filling machine, so the air quality can be guaranteed to be the best. This design also allows the operator to stand outside and control the machine."
