Drinktec Agr, Hall A4 - Stand 336 Agr International, Inc. will be exhibiting an array of products for managing the production and quality of beverage containers. Featured will be the latest developments in advanced blowmoulder management, shelf-life control and pressurised container testing.

The Process Pilot with CrystalView automated blowmoulder management system is ideal for beverage producers that PET bottles in-house. The Process Pilot product group offers precise material thickness distribution management on PET bottles, while offering hands-off blowmoulder control. With the trend towards ever lighter bottles, the Process Pilot system offers producers the ability to light weight bottles to the absolute minimum while providing the confidence that material is distributed appropriately, with proper thickness in all critical areas, on every bottle produced. Whether the goal is to make the lightest bottle possible, process preforms of mixed lineage, improve bottle shelf-life and performance characteristics, save energy or just run a stable process 24/7, the Process Pilot product group offers a means to realise this goal profitably and with confidence.

Shelf-life management is an important but tedious measurement. Agr will feature several products that provide immediate determination of the permeability and shelf-life performance of newly produced PET bottles. These products make it possible to effectively manage (in real-time) a bottle’s shelf-life performance for oxygen ingress, CO2 or water loss.

Whether a final product is packaged in a PET bottle, PET keg, aluminium bottle or glass, accurate volume and proper pressure performance is paramount to the efficacy of the finished beverage container. The Agr PPT3000 offers a versatile solution for measuring volume expansion and pressure testing of containers manufactured from PET. Unlike other pressure testers, The PPT3000 actually simulates the rapid rise pressure profile that a container experiences during the filling cycle, providing valuable data that can be used to prevent filling line downtime due to premature pressure breaks.
