KHS InnoPET Blomax Series V
Powerful, energy-efficient stretch blow molder
Good to know
The latest generation of our proven KHS InnoPET Blomax stretch blow molders, the Series V, sets new standards in resource savings and considerably reduces the carbon footprint left by the production process. In addition to innovative systems which save energy and cut down on the TCO and optimized features relevant to machine safety and ease of operation the new series provides you with highly energy- and cost-effective plant engineering for the manufacture of your plastic, bio-based and rPET bottles holding between 0.2 and 3.0 liters. The KHS InnoPET Blomax Series V can be used to bottle water, soft drinks, beer or sensitive products such as milk. Thanks to the modular design with its supplementary blow station concept for special still water applications involving containers of up to approximately 750 ml, it is highly flexible, specific in its use and has 6-36 blowing stations with a specific capacity of up to 2,500 containers per hour/blow station.
Well thought out
With the new Double Gate heating concept (DoGa) based on tried-and-tested, highly efficient NIR heating technology, a consistent heating profile can be applied with extreme precision to the preforms which pass to the left and right of the heaters. This system reduces the number of heater boxes and saves up to 40% in energy costs compared to single-lane stretch blow molders of the same capacity. In the DuoCooling cooling concept two cooling circuits with different temperatures are generated through an external cooler. In the stretch blow molding process these cool the base mold and stretch drive and prevent any condensation from forming on the outer mold shells. The system saves up to 15 % in energy. The EcoDry air management system supplements the efficient AirbackPlus air recycling system. The residual air from the blowing and recycling process is used to dry the cooled base molds. This effectively combats the forming of condensation on the entire blow mold and helps to further improve machine hygiene. The EcoDry process also significantly streamlines the separate air drying process otherwise necessary in certain climatic conditions or does away with it altogether. This in turn reduces investment and energy costs.
