B L Agro Oils, an indian mustard oil producer,s has installed a new PET bottling line from liquid packaging solutions provider Sidel at a purpose-built facility near its existing refinery unit in Parsakhera, Uttar Pradesh.

The bottling line comes with Sidel Combi that combines blow moulding, filling and capping in a single integrated system.

The Combi system is said to reduce operating costs by up to 12% and offer efficiency levels that are up to 4% higher than standalone machines.

Suitable for all liquids packaged in PET, the Combi system eliminates conveying, empty bottle handling, accumulation and storage, thereby optimizing line layout with a smaller footprint.

The Combis are designed to increase packaging hygiene and ensure food safety and be further improved when configured with Predis or Capdis for caps, Sidel’s dry preform decontamination technology.

B L Agro Oils is planning to extend the bottling of its oils in PET in a bid to grow its business and increase domestic volumes.

The Sidel line with Combi, labeller, bottle & pack conveyor, case erector, case sealer, case packer and palletiser is capable of producing 400 bottles per minute or 24,000 bottles per hour.

It is currently producing 200ml, 500ml and 1l formats for various products within the B L Agro Oils range, including its flagship brand, the Bail Kolhu Kacchhi Ghani mustard oil.

Additionally, the company is working with Sidel to develop completely new 2l and 5l formats with new bottle designs.

B L Agro executive director Ashish Khandelwal said: “Testing how our oils performed in PET and in different environmental conditions allowed us to arrive at the optimum packaging solution for our products.

“PET allows us to maintain the taste of our oils – especially important to our Bail Kolhu Kacchhi Ghani mustard oil which has a particularly distinctive taste – as well as their nutritional properties through the vitamins and minerals they contain.”
