Twist Rinser for PET bottles
The Twist Rinser, developed and patented by Traktech, is a system for cleaning the inside of PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) containers, for companies with lines of high production.
It is the only rinser on the market installed on the air conveyor, located between the blower and the filler, significantly reducing production costs and possible incidents in the filling line.

Advantages of the Twist Rinser
It is a highly efficient investment, as it offers a very competitive development cost in comparison to a traditional rotary rinser for high production.
Rinser integrated in the air conveyor
It avoids incidents in the filling line and improves production efficiency, as the Twist Rinser is integrated into the air conveyor, simplifying the design and avoiding an interface between the conveyor and the rinser.
It is a very efficient machine. The Twist Rinser does not require compressed air, water, or chemicals. In addition, it requires very little maintenance.
Ideal for updating packaging lines
The Twist Rinser is also an ideal solution for companies with project to update or rehabilitate their filling lines, as it replaces an existing section of the air conveyor without modifying the current design of the production line.
How does the Twist Rinser work?
The TWIST RINSER cleans PET containers in production lines with high production, using the same air conveyor that links the blower and the filler.
On the route between the blower and the filler, 6 metres of the air conveyor are replaced with the Twist Rinser by Traktech, which works at the same speed.
The Twist Rinser guides the PET containers through the neck ring, the same as the air conveyor, locating it upside down on a section of about 1 m, while at the same time it cleans it by injecting pressurized ionized air. This dual blowing and suction cleaning with ionised air generates a circular air current that removes any particle form inside the PET container.
The Ionised Air system in the Twist Rinser
In the Twist Rinser, the ionised air used in the cleaning counteracts the effects of static electricity that the particles of dirt could have, thus avoiding the dirt adhering to the sided of the PET container.
This ionised air is generated with the IonRinse™system, which combines powerful CA ionisation with high level on-line filtration to provide the maximum level of cleaning with ionised air .
Using high-volume and high-speed centrifugal as well as Hepa filters with ionised air, the ionised air leaves the main unit and enters the containers by the air distributor. Airflow control combined with neutralisation of electrostatic charges detaches contamination form the internal walls of the container, which are collected by the flow of vacuum air.
