  • Item #BLV-BLUE-3C
The BLUE LINE 3-C Triblock by ViMEG is a fully automatic bottle rinsing, filling and crown capping machine. A small amount of liquid (filtered water or no-rinse sanitizer) is sprayed into the bottles before they are swung vertical and rotated to ensure that they are uniformly cleaned and dry before being filled. A light vacuum is introduced to the bottle while filling- removing the displaced air to minimize the liquid's exposure to oxygen and reduce the risk of oxidation. 

The BLUE LINE 3-C can be produced with 9, 12, or 16 rinsing nozzles; and 12 or 16 filling spouts, providing a production rate of up to 3000 bottles per hour. The self-contained unit is complete with its own conveyer belt for loading and unloading bottles, filling hopper, cap hopper with loading arm for the caps, single capping head, motor, and on-board control unit for operating the machine and adjusting the production speed. The in-feed screw smoothly transitions the bottles from the conveyor to the revolving starwheel where they are precisely positioned atop automatic lift plates that raise the bottles to the filling nozzles. The subsequent revolving starwheel secures the base of the bottle at the point of capping, while individual microsensors ensure that the bottle opening is correctly aligned for precise application of the cap. The on-board variable frequency digital control allows you to adjust the speed of both the conveyor, filling nozzles, and capping head, as well as switch between automatic and manual filling and corking on the fly. The descending cap track contains a photocell sensor to ensure the presence of a cap in the feed channel.

The BLUE LINE 3-C is modular and can be operated as a stand-alone unit or in a fully-integrated series with other ViMEG machines.
