Planinka selects Sidel Matrix bottling equipment for Prolom Voda facility

sidelSerbia-based bottler Planinka has selected a complete polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottling line from Sidel for its Prolom Voda mineral water production facility.

Planned to be installed by October, the new 13,200bph line will be added to Planinka’s existing PET bottling manufacturing line for its Prolom brand.

The compact Sidel Matrix Combi features a Matrix blower SBO 6 and a Matrix Filler SF100 FM with 36 valves.

Integrating blow-fill-cap functions in a single unit, the Sidel Combi system enables lightweight bottles to be produced by a single operator.

The Sidel Matrix SBO blowers offers blowing stations in three sizes and up to 200 possible blower configurations.

The systems produce ultra-lightweight bottle in different shapes and sizes, ranging from 1l to 3.5l.

Equipped with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, the contactless Matrix Filler SF100 FM helps prevent the filling environment being contaminated.

Planinka Prolom Voda head Dragoslav Ilic said: “As top producers in the beverage business, we are looking for great performance and the lowest possible total cost of ownership (TCO) from all our production lines.

“The main challenge of this particular project related to space constraints.

“However, Sidel’s line project team was able to offer the solution to fit all the component machinery needed for the line into the available space in a safe and functional way.”

In 2007, Planinka bought a blower, Universal SBO 6, from Sidel for its water bottling line at its facility in Prolom Banja.

In 1990, the company launched its bottled Prolom water in order to meet the demand for healthier drinks in the local and international market.
