The miniature-scale carbonatorprovides the ability to establish precise and repeatable parameters whencarbonating in the laboratory, this can dramatically improve the speed withwhich new products are developed.
The totally new design including a large number of improvements andenhancements. In particular, special attention has been given to the ease ofuse, enhanced flexibility, reliability and improved Clean In Place (CIP).
Both premix and postmix operations are available from the standardmachine, and an option is available to add the syrup for postmix automatically.Other options enable for deaeration of the product and evacuation of thebottles, continuous processing capability, and filling and capping (screwand/or crown) at a single station without removing the bottle.
The Carbonator/Filler is easy to install, set up and use.
Colour touch screen control is used with a new graphical interface,enabling different carbonating and filling scenarios to be set and stored. Theimproved semi-automated cleaning programme takes the user step by step throughthe cleaning process and enables the unit to be made ready for another productor formulation.
