China’s Nanjing Ziquan installs second hot-fill PET line

Chinese co-packer Nanjing Ziquan has installed the second Sidel complete hot fill PET line at its Nanjing facility in order to increase production capacity.

Chinese co-packer Nanjing Ziquan has installed the second Sidel complete hot-fill PET line at its Nanjing facility in order to increase production capacity.

Sidel’s new hot-fill PET line is capable of producing 36,000 bottles per hour (bph).

The addition of a new line will bring the total number of hot-fill lines installed at the Nanjing plant to three.

Sidel’s comprehensive line includes an SBO Heat-Resistant blower with 20 blowing stations, a Sidel Matrix SF700 hot filler, conveyors, labeller and packer.

“As a result of the excellent and reliable performance of this first complete hot-fill line, we were happy to award the project for a similar solution once again to Sidel.”

By installing Sidel’s new hot-fill complete line, the Nanjing Ziquan intends to further increase production capacity of Mizone in PET bottles.

A Nanjing Ziquan management spokesperson said: “The earlier Sidel line had been maintaining an operating efficiency of 95%+ and has even been upgraded recently so that its output speeds for the 600ml bottle format increased from 30,000bph to 34,500bph.

“As a result of the excellent and reliable performance of this first complete hot fill line, we were happy to award the project for a similar solution once again to Sidel.”

In addition to manufacturing PET bottles for Mizone, the new hot-fill line will be used to meet the production demands of drinks packaging such as teas, isotonics and juices.

A part of the Shanghai Ziquan Beverage Company, Nanjing Ziquan was established in April 2004 and it produces PET bottles for several major brands, including Danone and Coca-Cola, at its 56,000m² facility in the Nanjing high-tech industrial development park.
