FILLING

The other two lines are 70-head Simmonazi glass fillers, each capable of approximately 450 bottles per minute.

Fillers can do different sizes glass bottles i.e. 275 ml, 300ml, 330ml, 660ml and 750ml (still fill).

LABELLING

CROWNING

VOLUMES

Facilities cater for applying either self-adhesive or wet glue labels to neck, body and back of bottle. A Graham sleeving machine allows us to sleeve bottles on site.

Pry-off or twist-off crowns

can be applied.

Although there is no maximum batch size, we do not recommend batches smaller than 15,000 litre (2,300 cases of 24) as it has an adverse effect on yields.
