To meet increasing volume from existing clients and additional work from new clients, Reabrook has invested in a new, personal care bottling line, complete with a four head filler. The recently commissioned line has increased combined bottling capacity and broadened the range of bottle shapes and sizes that can be handled. The line is located within a clean room area, which boasts a medical standard clean room, two phase blending facility and positive air-pressure filling area. The line has been completed to meet the latest CE requirements and validated to a high cleaning standard.
The filling line is equipped to fill a range of various personal care products with full diving nozzles to increase fill speeds (12-32 bottles per minute) and reduce foaming during filling. The controls are PLC and pneumatically operated system to ensure the flow of containers supplied from the rotary table is maintained throughout out the production process. Interchangeable cylinders fitted with rotary valves to allow accuracy of fill weights as low as 10ml up to 1000ml with a portable chassis that can be easily disconnected from line for cleaning and maintenance to maintain efficiency.
All wet parts are fitted with 316 stainless steel including the frame and safety interlocks. ‘This is an important enhancement to our offering, enabling us to continue to support our customers throughout their development programme and into larger-scale operations,’ said Tony Brealey, Joint Managing Director. The installation of the line fulfills Reabrook’s wish to ensure that they can help their customers create the products they need by providing a full-service manufacturing facility for aerosols and liquids, this can begin with market and trend analysis, through to research and development, creative and design, manufacturing, quality assurance and finally logistics.
