Directed at extending the shelf life of sensitive liquid products, the Actis™ 48 is said to be the world's fastest equipment for applying PET bottle barrier treatment. With output rated to 40,000 bottles/hr, the system deposits a thin layer of hydrogen-rich, amorphous carbon inside the bottle, reducing carbon dioxide loss and entry of oxygen and, the co. adds, can also bring significant material costs savings because bottle weights are lighter. With 48 processing stations, the machine design is based on rotary kinematics, with features including a vacuum system, plasma technology, process time and positive transfer.
