Fogg Filler Co.: Sanitizer skids
Fogg Filler’s new Sanitizer Skids will combine chemical blending, sterile water generation, and rinse recovery in one compact skid for multiple rinsers.
The first thing the Sanitizer Skid is designed to do is blend chemical. It will mix the chemical of your choice to the proper concentration. Then it heats it to the prescribed temperature and maintains it as needed. These actions are all controlled and operated by the PLC. Using this feature will ensure that your rinsing/sanitizing system always maintains the proper pressure and allows for custom blending requirements.
The second part of the skid is the Sterile Water Generation process which takes ambient, plant water and filters it through a series of filters. The necessary pumps and valves are provided to meet your application needs. You also have the option for direct steam injection where the temperature is controlled +/- 5°F to heat the water to your specified temperature.
The chemical solution then travels to your rinser/rinsers to sanitize the bottles. Then the chemical solution is returned back to the Rinse Recovery section of the Skid to be filtered and reused. This dramatically reduces the environmental impact a t the same time it lowers the manufacturers operating costs.
A typical user shows results like this:
If your filler is running at 120 bpm and your rinser is running at 10-14 gpm you will use approximately 14,400-20,160 gallons of sanitizing fluid every 24 hours. Without a Chemical Supply & Recovery System, it all goes down the drain. With a Fogg Rinse Recovery System, you will only use 300 gallons of sanitizing fluid in 24 hours, nearly eliminating the waste of water and chemical! That saves nearly 20,000 gallons of water per day and would fill up an Olympic sized swimming pool every four days of operation! With these savings the system pays for itself in 60-90 days!
You can integrate this Sanitizer Skid to any line or have the system built directly into your next project. Each system will be customized to meet your sanitation needs. Fogg’s proven technology helps lower operating costs and provides the highest level of reliability for your production lines.
