Line waste, surplus production, but first of all deposit return systems: there are many cases in which you need a de-capper to make a PET or a glass bottle reusable and so that it does not become a waste.
If we talk, for example, about deposit return systems, from North America to Australia and Europe, the global interest in this material recovery is constantly growing*. These systems achieve high performance (collection rate in Germany: 98%), produce higher quality recycled materials and promote the transition to a circular economy. Given these benefits, more and more companies consider the deposit return systems the best solution to manage their empty containers in a circular manner and to address the growing problems of both terrestrial and marine waste.
"De-cap" to reuse: a concrete example of circular economy
AROL’s leadership in closure systems (25,000 machines installed worldwide) means that it has also specialized in de-capping systems (more than 200 machines installed to date).
REVERSE, with between 3 and 30 heads, delivers safe unscrewing of caps with diameters of 28-38 mm, at up 60.000 caps/h (1.000 caps/min).
The machine’s decapping heads are made entirely of stainless steel; special handling parts, including discharge piping and containers, can also be supplied in stainless steel to prevent scratches to bottles and give longer life to components.
REVERSE can identify bottles that do not have caps: its “no decapping” feature prevents bottle neck damage.
The machines are equipped with advanced inspection systems for height variance at the infeed and cap detection at the discharge.
REVERSE is designed for quick format change and is flexible enough to be adapted in any plant.
