Rinsing cans is an important step in preparing the empty cans prior to filling. It helps remove unwanted materials from the cans. Cans are moved from the conveyor to a twist rinse cage which inverts the cans, rinses them with water or air, then re-inverts them to the upright position for filling. Water twist rinse cages are normally used in canning lines running up to 110 cans per minute. They work well on slower line speeds in order to have time for the water to drain from the can prior to re-inverting.Our new Dual Twist Rinse cage makes changing can sizes as simple as sliding the rinse cage from one side to the other. No tools are required.
Ionized air rinsers are common in higher speed canning lines because they are more efficient. Once the can is inverted, a blast of ionized air blows out particles while a powerful air-vac removes them. This process works with line speeds up to 2,000 cans per minute.
