Pakistan Beverage has installed a new standalone SBO8 Universal2Eco blower for carbonated soft drinks (CSD) production at its facility in Karachi.
The new blower is the second to be procured by the company from liquid packaging solutions provider Sidel.
Pakistan Beverage expects the new equipment, which has the capacity to generate close to 16,000 bottles every hour in 500ml, 1.5l and 2.25l formats, to help it meet increased market demands for its products.
The Sidel blower features Ecoven technology, which ensures less power consumption and can increase output since it is equipped with a large reserve that allows fast heating.
The blower can also deliver heat treatment precision that can ensure identical PET bottle characteristics and quality, Sidel said.
Pakistan Beverage manufacturing operations group director Ronnie Daruwalla said: "At Pakistan Beverage, we always strive to operate reliable equipment that can help us keep up with the market demand.
"We have worked with Sidel for almost two decades, and with the use of their machines and innovative solutions, we have seen our production capacity increase."
The beverage manufacturer had installed the first SBO Universal2eco blower at its facility in 2015, which has helped it to manufacture multi-serve packages at optimised operating costs.
