Danone opts for “BIG COMBO”

An entire bottling system, designed by Sacmi Filling, has been installed in Morocco

Its name is Sotherma, but  Danone controls the company: based in Fes (Morocco),  the company enumerates  the world’s market leader  of bottling systems among its stockholders. This is a starting point for North Africa, a complete bottling line designed by Sacmi following the rules of Danone in designing the system: these rules are observed  even by the subsidiary companies.  

The line, designed for bottling plain water  in PET 5-litre bottles,  is based  on  the SOLO MAS “COMBO” 4HC/16/4 that comes complete with  four cavities,  16 filling valves and 4  capping heads. The only COMBO in the world capable of blowing, filling and capping large PET bottles - for this reason known as COMBO to insiders.  The machine can produce 4 thousand bottles/hour (five-litre format) and processes the 8-litre size with an hourly production rate of 3,200 pieces.  

The distinctive feature of the machine – the entire  engineering has been designed by Sacmi Filling – is the operating method (volumetric-electronic): filling takes place by using a flow meter and this technology eliminates the need for contact between the bottle and valve during the filling process. The result is that hygiene conditions are fully satisfied throughout the entire process while risks of contamination are avoided thanks to total isolation of the filling zone from the outside environment. Sacmi Filling has designed an  “ULTRA CLEAN” machine, as commonly said in the beverage sector. Sacmi Filling has designed the machine in STAINLESS STEEL as a standard feature in order to ensure thorough cleanliness and hygiene without having to add substances hazardous to health.

In order to complete the line -  which is scheduled at the beginning of 2009 and will come into operation by next April -  a labeller designed by Sacmi Labelling will also  be supplied – model RHM 720 6T/R S1/E1. Then a packaging machine, palletiser and handling machine for 5-litre bottles will be provided. With this supply, SACMI has added a new partner to its reference business associates to confirm the high reliability of COMBO designed by Sacmi Filling. Market leaders like Nestlé have opted for two packaging lines; 10 of these machines have been sold by Sacmi Filling throughout the world, which are capable of handling 5-, 8- and 10-litre package sizes.
