Air conveyors for moving PET bottles
Traktech’s air conveyors are an effective way to move PET blown bottles, guaranteeing quick and agile movement of the bottles with no risk of snagging or contamination.
Traktech, being a specialist in the handling of empty bottles at the start of the filling line, has accumulated a great deal of experience in different systems for moving empty bottles.
Traktech’s air conveyors blow the bottles just below the neck guide that holds the bottle by the ring, making contamination by blowing into the bottle impossible, as between the blowing orifices and the bottle mouth there is a Teflon guide and the ring of the bottleneck that stops air from entering the PET bottle.
Traktech’s air conveyors also have an automatic system to adjust the neck guide and side guides, that can work with electrical actuators or pneumatic pistons. In both adjustment systems, the air conveyors ensure perfect adjustment of the guides, avoiding bottle transport jams, which can occur with other adjustment systems.

Air conveyors with CHP Micro lubrication systems with Teflon
Our air conveyors use guides with Teflon for the bottle neck as well as incorporating as standard a patented CHP Micro lubrication system with Teflon, providing bottling companies with significant advantages in comparison to other offers on the market.
Advantages of the CHP Micro lubrication System with Teflon
Enables fan power to be reduced by up to 40% in an existing installation. For new installations, this will mean fewer fans, and as a result, more economical and energy-efficient installations.
Guarantees that there will be no jams in the Air Conveyor, due to low friction between the neck guide and neck ring of the bottles.
Ensures optimum operation of the Air Conveyor whatever maintenance is carried out, as the Teflon used as a lubricant repels dirt.
Avoid static electricity
Eliminates electrostatic problems in untreated PET bottle preforms.
Longer useful life
Extends the lifespan of PET bottleneck guides up to five times more than other conveyor options on the market.
