Winegrowers Supplies - External bottle washers
Automatic Washing and Drying machines
DUR - LT500: 500 bottles/hour actual speed, 9700.00 Euros
With a single station, including a central star-wheel with step-by-step motion which transfers the bottles to the
different positions for the washing and the drying actions.
In the first position, high-speed rotating brushes clean the neck and bottom of the bottle.
In the second position, a holding head is lowered on to the bottle, to keep it firmly positioned on the bottle-seat. The bottle then rotates against a main brush; water is sprayed through adjustable nozzles.
Then the bottle is dried in two steps:-
Firstly, removal of water drops from the bottle neck by blowing compressed air.
Then complete drying of the body of the bottle by means of an air-blowing pipe, feeding hot air over the entire bottle surface. During the air-blowing the bottle is rotated on its axis.
The blown air is always higher in temperature that the external ambient temperature.
It is ideal for cleaning Champagne bottles with corks and wire-muzzles on, as the air-blowing nozzle is designed specifically to blow the water drops away from the bottle top (see the second photo above).
The machine is built entirely in stainless steel (AISI 304) or other materials guaranteed for long-term
resistance to water contact.
