The capacity of a reheat stretch-blow molding machine for 2-liter PET bottles has been expanded to allow production of 5-L bottles. The two-cavity L22X model from W. Amsler Equipment Inc., Richmond Hill, Ont., produces 2400 larger bottles/hr while still putting out smaller bottles at 3270/hr. The new unit was developed in response to growing demand for gallon beverage bottles. The servo-driven L22X boasts 3-sec cycles for gallon bottles and is more economical than the L26 unit, which molds up to 6-L bottles but at a slower rate. The new unit has higher clamp tonnage, longer opening stroke, and preferential preform cooling. It handles neck fi nishes from 20 to 70 mm. Tel: (905) 707-6704 . www.amslerequipment.net
