Krones Lavatec D4/D5: Die Doppelend-Reinigungsmaschine, Überblick



Beschreibung

"Weniger ist oft mehr" – die neue und verbesserte Lavatec Serie beherzigt dieses Motto so konsequent wie nie. Die Krones Reinigungsmaschine überrascht mit ihrem sparsamen Wasser- und Energie-Haushalt. Und sie beweist, dass ein "Hygiene-Hoch" auch ohne "Chemie-Keule" erreichbar ist. Den sparsamen Umgang mit Ressourcen verdankt die Lavatec ihrer cleveren Konstruktion als Doppelend-Maschine mit Vertikalschleifen und kontinuierlichem Schmutzaustrag. Was das konkret bedeutet, erfahren Sie auf den folgenden Seiten.

Lavatec D4/D5

Gives bottles a shining appearance

“Less is often more” – the new and

improved Lavatec series pays heed

to this motto more consistently than

ever. The

krones

bottle washer sur-

prises with its thrifty water and ener-

gy budget. And it proves that “high-

est-quality hygiene” can be achieved

without a “chemical cudgel”.

The Lavatec‘s economical treatment

of resources is due to its clever con-

struction as a double-end machine

with vertical loops and continuous

debris removal. This is explained pre-

cisely on the following pages.

Method of operation

In order to spatially separate contam-

inated and clean bottles from one

another, the Lavatec was designed

according to the “double-end” prin-

ciple: The bottles are fed and dis-

charged at different locations, thus

ensuring the best possible hygienic

conditions. The pre-cleaning unit

heats the bottles and removes glass

fragments and debris. Subsequently

the bottles run through a number

of caustic baths in vertical loops, in

order to completely wash away dirt

or labels. Before the bottles leave

the machine, they are cooled in the

post-treatment zones with a small

quantity of fresh water and freed of

any remaining dirt or caustic residues.

Spatial separation of infeed and

discharge of the bottles

“Clean-design” construction

Automatic tank filling system

main caustic baths

Weekly operation

Discharge area in stainless steel

Touch-screen operator control

Automatic debris removal

Layout variants

The

krones

cleaning technology

is modularly structured: Single ele-

ments for the pre-soak tank, loop

guide and post-treatment system are

combined to form an individual bot-

tle washing system. Depending on

the requirements, further elements

such as a high-pressure jetting sys-

tem, heat recovery system and label

removal  unit in the pre-soak tank

can be added. For optimal utilisation

of the available space, the Lavatec is

available in different machine heights

and widths.

Custom-made:

The model variants ideally fit into

the space available.

Infeed

At the infeed, fingers pick up the bot-

tles from the conveyor and transport

them safely and precisely to the bot-

tle carriers.

Discharge

Special discharge fingers transport

containers of all shapes and sizes

securely and quietly onto the conveyor.

Drive technology

Together with a central frequency

inverter, the high-performance

synchronous drives allow precise

control of the main chain and gen-

tle bottle conveyance.

All drive sprockets and end-turning

devices are divided - this is a signif-

icant advantage for later mainte-

nance jobs.

Clean design

The housing and piping guide

systems fulfil the highest hygien-

ic demands and are equipped with

central draining points.

The combined coarse and fine fil-

tration renders the use of sieving

conveyors and detachable sieves

superfluous and ensures high

post-caustic purity.

The open bottle slide made of one-

piece, germ-resistant plastic sec-

tions guarantees the best possible

hygienic conditions.

The easily accessible discharge

area enables fast, intensive

cleaning.

Your benefits

Highest hygiene

Construction according to the dou-

ble-end principle and clean design

assures maximum hygiene and

safety.

Operational reliability

Thanks to its improved mechan-

ical components and continuous

debris removal, the Lavatec oper-

ates safely and reliably even in

24-hour operation cycles.

Less water and fewer chemical

additives

The continuous debris removal

and the multiple-bath design with

vertical loops result in enormous

savings with respect to the con-

sumption of water and chemicals.

Efficient use of energy

The heating system supplies the

best results in heat transmission

and reduces energy costs substan-

tially.

Gentle bottle conveyance

Special carrier systems guide the

bottles gently and safely through

the machine. The bottles are dis-

charged quietly and without them

falling over. Synchronous drives

and chain rollers with plastic bush-

ings guarantee accurate bottle

conveyance.

Relieves pressure on operators

The inside of the machine is easily

accessible and can be cleaned in

an optimal manner.
