Sidel, the leading global provider of PET solutions for liquid packaging, will be introducing for the first time in the UAE its Sidel Matrix™ Combi system, after being selected by Dubai Crystal Mineral Water and Refreshments to upgrade its factory. The Sidel Matrix Combi, based on the most cost-effective technology of the latest generation of Sidel Matrix systems, will contribute to delivering high level performance and production safety, along with reduced costs and a low environmental footprint.

Dubai Crystal Mineral Water and Refreshments is a HACCP and ISO certified company involved in multi-faceted activities with manufacturing and distribution facilities in Iran and UAE for the Crystal and Hatta Mineral Water brands.

The Sidel Matrix Combi will help the Emirati bottler to produce PET water bottles in 330ml and 500ml formats at a speed of 22,500 bottles per hour (bph) and 1.5l format at a speed of 16,000bph.

Along with the Sidel Matrix Combi system, Dubai Crystal Mineral Water and Refreshments will integrate Sidel’s recently launched Sidel StarLite™ base packaging technology which gives added durability, stability, and overall resistance to the PET bottles. It offers a more energy efficient method of production, allowing producers to achieve significant savings on energy and the amount of PET used in the overall production process.

“We have been looking to upgrade our factory with the latest solutions in packaging and bottling innovation, and we chose Sidel because of their proven capabilities and proficiency. With versatility and production savings for PET bottles, Sidel was the best option for us, and we are very certain that our consumers will feel the same,” says Shahram Raheb, Managing Director of Dubai Crystal Mineral Water and Refreshments. 

The Sidel Matrix Combi system integrates the blow-fill-cap function in one single enclosure, with neck-handling and positive transfer of bottles, which avoids limitations imposed by air conveyors.

It brings together all the benefits of blowing and filling innovations in an integrated solution which delivers outstanding energy efficiency while simultaneously cutting costs. The machine offers savings in raw materials with light or ultra-lightweight bottles, as well as reduced consumption of air, water, chemicals and energy.
