5US Gallon line consist of a tunnel for washing, disinfection and rinsing and the section of filling and capping 1-5 US gallon bottles. Depending on Customers’ needs they allow achieving the capacity from 300 to 3000 of bottles per hour. Metering control of liquid assures exact volume in the bottle.
As turn-key solution we propose ONE-WAY 1-5 Gallon filling line including Blow-Moulding machine TMS-5001G for 350|700 bph with rinser and filler solution. In our range available 5L + 5US Gallon filling machine
Bardi line can handle both the 3/5G and 5/10 Litres PET one-way bottles through a simple and quick change-over system able to combine minimum downtime together with maximum hygienic safety.
Neck handling: 1 gripper for 2 pliers
Dedicated rinsing program for 5 litres one way bottles\
Customized change parts to handle returnable and one-way bottle consistency
The decapper is designed to remove the cap from the returned bottles. The Plc manages all automatic and manual functions and allows to records statistics regarding the incoming bottles. This unit can be up-graded to recognize and discard potentially contaminated bottles. A combination of digital camera and fibre optic detectors allow to reject the bottles returned in the following conditions:
The leak tester is designed to recognize and reject leaking bottles. The working principle is to pressurize the containers for a predetermined period of time and measure the potential losses. The Plc manages all automatic and manual functions and allows to record statistics regarding the faulty bottles.
Reliable and accurate leak detection of cracks min. diameter of 0,2 mm
Washing machine for 5Gallons, manufactured in different sizes able to guarantee the highest level of bottle hygienic quality today on the market.

Temperature of washing
Pressure of liquids
The treatment time is the result of a washing cycle which can be customized in terms of number of stations and phases according to the customer standard and requirements. Our recommended washing cycle provides 6 main phases: 1. PREWASH - 2. DETERGENT - 3. FIRST RINSE - 4. SANITIZING - 5. SECOND RINSE - 6. FINAL RINSE
The constant monitoring of the temperature is paramount in order to wash the bottles according to the preset values (between 60 and 65°C). An alarm stops the washer in case these set points are not respected.
To optimize the washing process, the washer is equipped with high pressure system, which:
Allows to increase the pressure of the washing jet up to 6 bar
Can be installed on one or more station of the washing phase
It's particularly indicated for difficult-to-clean bottles (hollow handles, shaped bottles)
In cooperation with the main multinational chemical company, we have developed a cleaning protocol in order to guarantee, after the washing treatment, a bottle consistent to the international hygienic norms and standards.
This protocol recommends specific products of different brand, suitable concentration and temperature of the solution (water + chemical product) for each phase of the washing cycle.
Neck Handling patented system to grip the neck of the bottle, guarantees important advantages as:
The possibility to use an high pressure washing jet
The washing of the external part of the bottle inside the washer, thanks to the possibility of the bottle rotation under the action of brushes
The washing of the bottle neck
Washing Rotating Nozzles is fitted with double washing rotating nozzles which guarantee the following advantages:
The jet of water hits not only the bottom, but the handle and the walls too.
The nozzles are self-cleaning (the water flow is inverted at the passing of each bottle) and the washing efficiency is therefore guaranteed. The disassembly for maintenance is considerably reduced.
The beam carrying the bottles is synchronized with the nozzle even in case of chain extension.
Rotary Brushing are motorised and clean the bottle externally. Since they make the bottle spin, the water jet hits not only the bottom but also the sides of the bottle.
To obtain a good hygienic condition of the bottles, the first step is to sterilize the parts in touch with the product. This can be achieved through the CIP unit which can work in automatic or semi-automatic modality and with hot or cold solution.
The PRESS-ON CAPPER is a linear machine used for caps applied on the bottle by pressure. It includes:
Placing system of cap on the neck
Device to snap the cap on the neck
Specific systems to sterilize the caps in order to avoid the contact of contaminating agents present on the cap with the bottle neck
The bottle takes the cap directly from the canal chute. The snapping of the cap on the bottle neck is carried out through the pressure developed by a belt conveyor, provided with a system to adjust the force in order not to stress the bottle.
