Serac Group of France (U.S. office in Carol Stream, Ill.) has long built filling and capping machines for dairy products and vegetable oils. In order to provide a total packaging solution, Serac recently introduced its first PET reheat stretch-blow molding machine. The model SBL (Serac Blow Linear) can mold bottles up to 5L at speeds from 2400 to 12,000 containers/hr. It is built by Serac’s Malaysian branch. The machine is designed for low energy consumption with low-temperature, uniform heating using reflectors and individually adjustable lamps. The blow molder can be integrated with Serac Combox filling/capping systems by means of a patented bottle transfer system that converts the intermittent blowing action into continuous, rotary motion for filling and capping.
