Arcade GEL

To overview
The bottle cleaning machines of the ARCADE GEL series are part of a complete type family and have been designed for the medium performance range from 12,000 to 42,000 bph.

They are of compact design and combine equipment and convenience of our high-performance machines with low space requirements. The optimal dimensioning and high proportion of stainless steel ensure high serviceability in the long term. Renowned institutes have confirmed the favourable cost effectiveness due to the economic use of water, low heat consumption and low lye carry-over proportion.

Thus, also this series copes with the high demands of the beverage industry, from the economical as well as from the ecological point of view.

The standard equipment of the Bottle Cleaning Machine ARCADE GEL includes, among others, the following important parts and features:

  • One-piece block-type machine housing, water zone completely made of stainless steel (see marking).
  • Bottle infeed with one-finger system and single-finger switch-off, completely made of stainless steel.
  • Final emptying with pulsed washing and separate vapour suction.
  • Heating by means of tubular heat exchanger in V4A steel, including control valve.
  • Self-cleaning internal GM rotary tube system for oblique and straight spraying.
  • Bottle discharge unit completely made of stainless steel, operating by means of one-finger system – height of fall = 0!
  • Manually operated protective sheathing for discharge unit.
  • Programme for automatic tensioning of the transport chain.
  • Single-shaft drives for main drive, infeed and discharge control for synchronous running.
  • No chains, no cardan shafts!
  • Cleaning and disinfection of head section by using initial solution from the cold water tank (semi-automatic mode).
  • Control cabinet made of stainless steel, mounted to the machine.
  • SIMATIC S7 control; reading of all temperatures and operating states on front touch panel.
  • Telephone remote maintenance via modem.
  • Automatic placing in running order, including time-switch controlled filling and heating of baths.
  • All lubricating pipes are joined on lubricating strips.

Upon request, the following proven additional equipment or special models can be provided:

  • Housing in the lye 2 zone made of stainless steel.
  • Housing completely made of stainless steel.
  • Insulation in hot lye zone by means of Styrodur and stainless steel cover.
  • High-pressure pre-spraying system for increased output with automatic dirt removal by travelling screen.
  • Fully automatic internal cleaning of the machine in the water, pre-soak and lye 2 zones.
  • Fully automatic lye sedimentation for an increased hold-up time of the lye.
  • Dirt removal by travelling screens in the water zones.
  • External spraying as self-cleaning rotary tube spraying.
  • Hot bottle discharge; fresh water preheating and heat recovery with plate heat exchanger.
  • Automatic lye dosing with conductivity measurement.
  • Conductivity-controlled dilution of lye 2.

The housing dimensions can be adapted to the constructional requirements.

  • Width of housing from 1,200 mm to 3,620 mm (grid dimension 220 mm)
  • Length of housing from 7,850 to 13,850 mm (grid dimension 500 mm)
  • Mirror-imaged or partially mirror-imaged design is possible.
