How PET Jars Descrambler Works

The flagship product within Shemesh Automation’s range of Front-Of-Line Packaging Solutions is the hopper and descrambler for fully automatic container feeding.

The SA-JF descrambler fits various types of canisters and requires virtually no additional changeover parts for different sizes. It features a top-notch control interface, robust building standards and benefits from Shemesh’s ‘easy-to-use’ and ‘built-to-last’ approach.

First, empty containers are unloaded into the stainless steel SST304 container hopper, which has level transmitters for ‘half-full’ and ‘empty’. From here they are collected by an elevator conveyor (first orientation) which transports them to a centrifugal feeding plate (second orientation). This orientates the containers before releasing them downstream along a conveyor in the perfect position as the jars stand with the opening rim facing the top.

Once on the SA-JF discharge exit conveyor, products normally advance towards the Shemesh-compatible fillers, sealers, cappers, labellers and case packers further down the Shemesh line.
