At a higher preform density damage can be caused by the preforms falling onto one another. In the compact and hygienic Silent TipTainer the risk of contamination by dust or other foreign matter is reduced to a minimum.

Retrofits on existing lines possible

The system is not just installable on new lines; it can also be retrofitted in existing and older plant engineering. All that the customer’s individual setup may require is a suitable software update.

The Silent TipTainer is also flexible in its operation; the elevator can be connected inline or on both sides of the Silent TipTainer and operated from the right or left. At Gerolsteiner Brunnen GmbH & Co. KG the system has already been in operation for six months where the low preform rejection rate is especially appreciated. “Converting from the conventional box tilter to the Silent TipTainer reduces the number of rejections on downstream control units and upholds our high demand for quality while lowering rejection rates,” states Dieter Kuhl, head of Non-returnables Production at the mineral water bottling plant in Gerolstein, Germany. In addition, known flaws on the neck, which can lead to a loss of CO2 among other problems, have also been reduced.
