All the qualities of PET : The PET bottle is a great success in many countries. And no wonder, producted by the biaxially oriented blow moulding process, PET or Polyethlene Terephthalate- bottles combine outstanding performances and aesthetic qualities. They give you the super crystal clarity needed to show any product to advantage. They have excellent carbonation retention properties and a good barrier to oxygen. Extremely resistant to breakage, light to handle and transport, and safe to health and environment.
To the advantage of PET itself, the extraordinary characteristics of the Canada Pure Fillers PET Bottle Blowing machines are added simplicity, compactness, reliability and flexibility. Quickly installed, the machine is ready for producing bottles of various shapes and contents as the changing of the moulds are rapid. Renowned for these advantages, it is the small "two steps" machine which is the most sold in world and gives satisfaction to hundreds of producers for various different applications like mineral water, carbonated Softdrink project equipment, edible oil, detergents. This is an ideal system for economical production in small series of quality bottles.
Six to eight vertically horizontally and angularly adjustable double lamps can be turned to allow a more uniform heating of any type of preforms. Before blowing preheating is achieved by recirculation of hot air exhausted by lamps and the system automatically adjusts to changes in the ambient temperature. An oven with ten lamps (optional) permits the heating of thicker preforms. An oven with 24 lamps permits the heating of 2 litre bottle preform. The control cabinet is equipped with a programmable microprocessor with Error Status Indicator. Setting and adjusting of the controls can be performed manually. For special climates the cabinet can be air conditioned.
The pneumatic, hydraulic and electrical equipments, as well as the cooling system, are easily accessible. Minimum replacement time is required when one type of bottle mould is changed for another one. No special tools are needed.
PET is certainly the ideal material. But to retain that title, it also needs the full benefits of bi-axial orientation. Bi-axial orientation requires two-stage production: the perform is first produced and then, within a precise temperature range, it is stretched both axially, (thanks to stretching rods), and radially by blowing. It is this process which gives the container its strength. These two phases can be carried out on one double acting machine (one stage) or separately on two different machines (two stages).
The application of this process to PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) product bottles, jars and containers which perform remarkably and uniquely: giving clarity excellent properties of carbonation retention, ingress of oxygen and virtually unbreakable, light to handle and transport and above all, kind to the environment and recyclable. This combination of properties has opened up new and important markets, PET has become the favored material in number of applications, notably for projects and equipment for carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks, mineral water, vegetable oils and vinegar. But the new generation of applications is covering a still more extensive range of detergents and cleaning products, wines and other alcoholic drinks, fruits juices, certain conserves sauces, ketchup and mustard, cosmetic and pharmaceutical products, industrial paints and oils chemical products etc., A range of new markets with a promising potential.
