Bottle Unscrambler

The PPS bottle unscrambler is not a typical belt and hook type unscrambler. Instead this ultra-reliable unscrambler is extremely compact yet is capable of high speeds. The 600 model (or 800 for large bottles or faster speeds) is the perfect companion to the PPS multi-lane tablet counters; the unscrambler will operate up to 70 bottles per minute on 100ml round containers and can be equipped with an ionized air bottle cleaner.

Bottles are placed in the main hopper when a live bottom transfers all of the bottles to a compact elevator. This system allows several boxes of bottles to be loaded at a time. Bottles are elevated to a rotary sorter from which they exit end to end. Containers progress to the orienter belts where they are accelerated for separation, bottles are turned to be neck trailing as they pass the hook, after which they are temporarily turned upside down when cleaned (container inverting system, vacuum and air ionizer are optional). After being up righted, the side belts deposit the containers onto any new or existing table top conveyor.

The unscrambler is very easy to change over with tool-less designs, dials featuring digital read outs, HMI for all speed settings such as motors for belts and turntables. Everything is saved to memory in the recipe management system.
