SERAC’s Canopy® bottles it up brilliantly

30.12.2004




SERAC of France has developed Canopy®, a completely new generation of monobloc filling and capping machines for PET bottles. The machines are very different from existing rotary fillers - they are compact, functional, easy to use and economical, providing exceptional accessibility. The Canopy® concept is based on six patents filed and registered by the company. SERAC will be at the INTERPACK trade fair in Düsseldorf from 21 to 27 April 2005.

A major feature of the Canopy® machines is that the mechanical components have been transferred to the upper part of the canopy, thus increasing the accessibility of the packing machines. This reduces fatigue and risk to operators as maintenance can be performed at human height. Canopy® takes up only half the floor size of standard machines. The container neck transfer system, redesigned sensors and the invention of a new dosing system, Dynaflow®, have led to a considerable reduction in area between the filling nozzles - the machines are now more compact and simpler to use. Electricity cabinets and control panels are also housed in the machines.

Canopy® filling and capping machines are very easy to use. All users need in order to start production are two parameters: the weight of the load and the production rate. Dosage takes place with no contact between the nozzle and the bottle, using a laminar jet to avoid splashing. Waste is collected in the lower container which is easily accessible and washable.



Canopy’s® attractive price also makes it very competitive in the flowmeter market. Production capacity reaches 18,000 one-litre packages per hour. Canopy® machines can be used for packaging water and oil for the food industry.

About SERAC

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
