Sidel prolomvoda serbia plant

In response to the growing global trend for healthier drinks, Serbian spa resort owner Planinka began bottling Prolom water in 1990. Despite the growing popularity of imported bottled water, domestic producers continue to benefit from the numerous natural springs in the area.

When purchasing its first blower in 2007, Planinka opted for a Sidel Universal SBO 6. So when the company decided to invest for the first time in a complete new production line, it once again turned to Sidel.

Compact and flexible

Commencing in October 2016, the new production line will operate in addition to the existing PET bottling line. It will include a compact Sidel Matrix Combi, featuring a Sidel Matrix blower SBO 6 and a Sidel Matrix Filler SF100 FM with 36 valves. The Combi system integrates the blow-fill-cap functions in a single unit — with neck-handling transfer of bottles enabling potential for lightweight bottles — occupying up to 30% less floor space and requiring only one operator, due to its single and simple control interface.

Sidel Matrix SBO blowers offer the flexibility to pick and choose a size and shape that best fit specific production needs. With three sizes of blowing stations and up to 200 possible blower configurations, almost endless distinctive light or ultralightweight bottle shapes are possible in sizes ranging from 0.1 to 3.5 L.

Optimum hygiene to maintain water properties

Additionally, the new 13,200 bph Prolom PET bottling line features the contactless Sidel Matrix Filler SF100 FM, developed to handle high-precision filling of beverages with little or no conductivity. It minimises product loss and the external tank holding the beverage is easy to clean. All parts that come into contact with the water are made from stainless steel AISI 316L. A tight enclosure, featuring HEPA filters on the roof, keeps the filling environment safe and reduces the risk of contamination.

The complete line also includes an efficient cap feeder, an automatic shrinkwrapper and bottle and pack conveyors.

The result is a line tailored to the specific site requirements, achieving the desired bottling capacity in a relatively confined space, with the high levels of hygiene required.
