Discussion on the development of wine filling equi

With the increasing development of science and technology and the integration with the international market, for the food industry, products must not only have high-tech content, qualified product quality and exquisite appearance packaging, but also their quantitative packaging must meet the standard. Only in this way can it become a famous brand product among similar products and a product that consumers can trust. For our manufacturers engaged in wine production, quantitative packaging is particularly important. The selection and use of advanced performance, especially high-precision filling machines, can not only make the quantitative packaging easy to meet the standard, improve their own image and product competitiveness, but also protect the rights and interests of consumers, relieve the worries of enterprises, and bring considerable benefits

current situation of filling equipment in domestic liquor industry

at present, the filling machines used by domestic manufacturers engaged in liquor industry can be roughly divided into two types from the filling principle: negative pressure equal level filling machine and quantitative Huai filling machine. For the wine industry, high precision, high efficiency, multi specification, multi bottle type and automation are their goals. However, at present, the filling sails of various equipment manufacturers have their own advantages and disadvantages in filling capacity, efficiency, suitable bottle type range and degree of automation. This restricts the product packaging quality and productivity of the wine industry to varying degrees, especially the problem of packaging capacity, which is a puzzle of the industry and an urgent problem to be solved

at present, many wineries use negative pressure and other liquid level filling machines to control the liquid level rather than the volume. There are three disadvantages in the filling principle and structural characteristics

due to the comprehensive influence of bottle height, bottle diameter, wall thickness and other errors, the bottle volume error is more than ten milliliters or even dozens of milliliters, resulting in a large filling error. In order to make the filling volume meet the standard, some wineries adjust the average filling volume to be higher than the nominal capacity, resulting in some being several milliliters or even more than ten milliliters higher than the nominal capacity, resulting in a large amount of liquor loss in vain; Some are less than a few milliliters or even more than a dozen milliliters of nominal capacity. This kind of unnatural lack of weight attracts complaints and fines, which makes many enterprises worried all day

in the following three cases (caused by bottle manufacturing quality or recycling bottles), there is no wine filling or insufficient filling volume, which increases the workload and affects the automation and productivity of production

the height of the bottle is slightly wrong

the bottle is slightly inclined

the mouth of the bottle is slightly uneven

the volatile area of the vacuum chamber is large, which is easy to remove the aroma, reduce the alcohol sprinkling degree, and cause a lot of economic losses

based on the above situation, some wineries choose quantitative cup filling sail to solve the problem of inaccurate quantitative. At present, the quantitative cup filling machine is not ideal in terms of structural principle and filling accuracy. (the filling accuracy is generally about ± 0.5%). If we can develop a filling machine with an accuracy of ± 0.2%, it will undoubtedly be a great blessing for the wine industry

the following takes a 16 head filling machine as an example to illustrate that different filling accuracy leads to an error of △ = 500 (ml/bottle) per bottle × 0.5% - 500 (ml/bottle) × 0.2% =1.5 (ml/bottle) (calculated based on the maximum upper deviation)

calculated by 2.5 yuan/500ml wine. Annual saving of single machine: 270 (days) × 16 (hours) × 4000 (bottle/hour) × 1.5 (M1/bottle) × 2.5 yuan/500 ml = 129600 yuan, and the benefits of high-end wine are more considerable

prospects for future wine filling equipment

the current situation of wine filling equipment and the problems expected to be solved by the wine industry at present, and the following prospects for the future development of filling equipment in the food and packaging machinery industry

high precision: adopt shunting precision filling valve or electronic valve to make the filling precision reach ± 0.2%

high efficiency: variable frequency speed regulation, 250 ~ 350 bottles/hour per valve (of course, in practice, the filling speed is related to the type of liquid, temperature, viscosity, foaming property, bottle type and other factors)

large range: suitable for bottle height of 100 ~ 430mm and bottle diameter Φ 50 ~ 110mm, 250 ~ 750ml multi specification filling

no liquid loss: the internal valve core lifting structure is adopted, and the filling valve is sealed tightly and reliably without dripping and filling without bottle

automatic, no bottle breaking: the bottle height error is automatically adapted, the bottle with crooked neck is automatically guided, the bottle is automatically righted when it is crooked, the bottle stops automatically when it is stuck, and the electrical protection function is complete

convenient replacement of parts: it is convenient to replace mechanism parts regardless of bottle diameter and bottle type

fully compatible: all kinds of glass, porcelain, plastic, ceramic bottles and cans can be automated or the company will perform semi-automatic operations in accordance with relevant laws and regulations

low price: strive to optimize the design, with compact structure, advanced performance and low price

these assumptions and prospects are realistic and feasible, and double the number of specimens should be taken for re inspection; If one test piece still fails to meet the requirements in the re inspection results. It is hoped that the food and packaging machinery industry can integrate the advantages of all parties, optimize the system structure design, and make greater contributions to the food and packaging industry in China, where these two different types of tension machines have their own characteristics.
