A HPI system injects a high pressure jet of water into an open bottle causing the contents to foam before the bottle is closed. The system is designed for use with carbonated drinks.

Functional descriptionWater is passed through a boiler and heated to a controlled temperature. The heated water is then sprayed/injected into the bottle. As the foam forms in the neck of the bottle it pushes the air out before being sealed. Through this process the shelf life of the product is increased.
Manually Controlled HPIThe HPI system is a self-standing unit, built from 1.4301 Stainless Steel. All the components required for the high pressure injection system are combined in a safe, space saving and modern design. This includes; heating element, pressure gauge, pressure relief valve, solenoid valve, temperature sensor, bleed valve, etc.
The required pressure can be manually set using the Pressure regulator. The system is design for constant production speeds.
Automatically controlled HPIThe automated system uses the same stainless steel gear pump that is also included in our closing machines.
By the means of a rotary encoder the speed of the filler is calculated and the pressure in the HPI proportionally adjusted. This means that the filler speed is constantly being monitored by the controller and the ideal injection pressure is provided by the pump. This ensures that by every production speed the product has the optimal amount foam in the neck before being closed. The system is design for variable production speeds.
Simple Operation The Automatic HPI has a built in PP65 Powerpanel from Bernecker + Rainer. This Panel consists of a TFT-LCD Colour-Display Touch-Screen with a 320x240 pixel resolution.
