Connell Industries provides the best and most cost effective PLC controlled hot fill/heat set tester on the market. Used by many of the largest PET hot fill bottlers and heat set manufacturers in the U.S., our 10 station hot fill system will safely and reliably meet your stringent hot fill and heat set testing requirements.
Our Hot Fill System uses the principle of gravity overflow to deliver 195 degree Fahrenheit water through overflow nozzles to provide a “cosmetic fill” for a wide variety of thin products. The overflow nozzles work by compressing and forming a tight seal on the rim of the container, allowing product to travel from a common supply tank directly into the container. At the same time, air and excess water are forced out through a return port in the nozzle and recirculated back to a secondary reservoir used to collect all excess water. This makes for a safe, reliable, and quick testing process.
Connell Industries’ Hot Fill testers have oversized reservoirs, primary and secondary recirculation tanks and an automatic float and valve systems to keep all wetted parts at a constant temperature between cycles. All systems incorporate an Allen-Bradley Micrologix 1000 programmable controller with a touch screen operator interface, 304 stainless steel framing, piping, tanks and conveyor plus many other features to provide operators with a high degree of safety and functionality.
