The Cap Sterilization Unit utilizes HP Invertor technology to invert hot filled containers to soak the cap and seal. This application is used to sterilize/pasteurize a containers cap, by using the heat of the fluid in the container to kill bacteria and germs on the cap. Our units have a small footprint, compared to other systems that perform the same application. There are three ways to sterilize your caps:
- Dual Invertors: the first Invertor moves the containers over 180 degrees, releases it to the production line for any length of time, then another Invertor turns it 180 degrees to the upright position.
- Momentary Contact: uses one Invertor to rotate your product 120 degrees, which quickly soaks the cap in hot fluid and sets it upright to proceed down the production line.
- All-In-One Unit: this is for containers that need a full 360 degree turn in an extremely small footprint for cap sterilization.
*Contact times vary per product rate.
These HP Invertors are specifically designed for the use of Cap Sterilization and are outfitted with heat dissipation gaps to aid with leaks, airflow and visual inspection. Our Invertors can be engineered for removal from the production line for quick changeovers and easy cleaning.
