Pre-Fill Rinsers

Providing your product with a clean vessel is the first step in getting the highest quality product from your tanks to your customers. No matter what method you require or what your space limitations are, we’ve got your can rinsing covered.

Twist Rinse Cage

The Ska Fabricating™ Twist Rinse can rinser integrates with our Can Depalletizers, Custom Height Depalletizers and our new Mobile Depalletizers. The twist rinse cages invert the cans as they come off the conveyor from the depalletizer. Water is used to rinse particles out of the cans prior to re-inverting before filling. Twist rinse cages work well with canning lines running up to 120 cans per minute because faster speeds don’t allow enough time to drain water from the cans before re-inverting.

  • Integrates with all canning lines running up to 120 CPM
  • Available in multiple can sizes
  • Easy swap out to change sizes
  • Guide rails made from 1/4″ stainless rod
  • Stainless enclosure with easy access to the cage
  • Can be configured straight off the conveyor or off to the side for tight spaces
  • H2O connection 3/8’’ NPT female

There are other options for turning cans upside down. The Carleton Helical can turner is available for confined spaces and specialty needs such as printing on the bottom of the can. See the video below.

Ionized air rinsers are recommended for all lines running at 110 cans per minute or above. See the Ionized Air Rinse here.

Dual Twist Rinse Cage

Our Dual Twist Rinse Cage makes changing can sizes a breeze. No tools are needed. You simply slide the rinse cages from one side to the other and you’re ready to go. The dual twist rinse incorporates integrated can height controls. A sensor detects the active side of the rinse cage and controls which photo-eye to use so no adjustment is required. An automatic valve switches the water supply from one side to the other saving water and eliminating the need to unhook your water source. Saves time and money.

Ionized Air Rinser

A&E Conveyor Systems pioneered the waterless rinsing technology. They were the first company to introduce a commercially acceptable system for replacing conventional water rinsing systems. Historically the canning industry has used a simple water rinse ever since the introduction of non-returnable containers. The waterless rinsing systems are designed for higher speed canning lines. We recommend using Ionized Air rinsing for lines running at 110 cans per minute or above.

The A & E Pur-Rinse system is based on their patented Air-Vac technology. The Air-Vac principle uses high pressure ionized air as the cleaning agent, combined with a continuous vacuuming process at the opening of the container to help remove and collect debris from containers.

The A&E system uses an advanced ionization process that has built in diagnostic features along with an internal alarm function to provide assurances that the ionization system is operating correctly. The Air-Vac and the Advanced Ionization Controls are the two key elements that differentiate any other air rinse system from an A&E Pur-Rinse system.

  • Patented Air-Vac rinsing manifold
  • Three stage air filtration
  • Advanced ionization system with internal diagnostics
  • Pressurized rinser chamber
  • Fully inverted container
  • Vacuum collections system
  • Self contained controls with alarm beacon
  • Power for AV-C500: 120V-1Ph-60Hz
  • Power for AV-C750 and AV-C1000: 460V-3Ph-60Hz
  • Air Requirements: 3-4 CFM at 80PSI

MINI S-GRIP LOWERATOR

The S- grip lowerator inverts cans for air rinsing while lowering containers from discharge height to line level. This lowerator has a small footprint, saving valuable floor space, and can be built to customer specific requirements. These lowerators can be retrofitted to an existing depalletizer or custom built for new depalletizer orders. The S-Grip allows for tool-less multi-point adjustability to handle a large range of can sizes for quick and easy changeovers.

Carleton Helical

The CE Ionized Air Rinser is designed to integrate into packaging lines for glass, plastic, metal or fiber containers. The System utilizes the BMH Invertor/Revertor System to rotate containers over an Ionized Air/Vacuum Assembly. By supplying clean, dry shop air to the ionized air nozzles, it produces a turbulent airflow that pulls the debris towards the vacuum and ionizing nozzles. Removing the filter bag and replacing it with a new bag will eliminate debris that may collect in the filter. Some of the key components include Stainless Steel tubular frame construction with locating pins for quick and easy changeover of the BMH Invertor/Revertor Assemblies. AC Sew Eurodrive motors that can be matched for specific applications are utilized. The electrical boxes are NEMA 12 rated for our standard, but other NEMA ratings can but used according to specifications. The Ionized Air Rinser can be wired to 230 or 460 VAC or whatever voltage is necessary. The control wiring is simply 110 VAC.
