HEVS - Electronic volumetric filling system for sparkling products

HEVS - Electronic volumetric filling system for sparkling products

The filling machines of the new HEVS series, manufactured according to the new HYPER CLEAN characteristics, are suitable for the VOLUMETRIC filling of SPARKLING products in PET bottles.

HEVS fillers are characterized by:

  • High precision flow meter installed for each filling valve;
  • Simplified filling valve, with reduced number of gaskets, capable of managing two filling stages (slow filling and fast filling);
  • Filling piston integrated in the valve body to ensure less movement of the bottle, a higher level of hygiene and a reduction in maintenance times;
  • CO2 injection inside the bottle through a dedicated channel, completely sanificable;
  • Cleanable sniff channel collected from each filling valve to one single drain outside the machine;
  • Dummy bottle with automatic set up, directly placed on the filling valve;
  • Higher filling temperature than filling with an electro-pneumatic filling valve.

The machine is complete, in the basic version, also with the following features:

  • 7” HMI (15” HMI available as an optional);
  • Parameters of each format to be directly managed through HMI;
  • Quick changeover of the bottle guide equipment;
  • Compact frame for space saving in the filling line and reduced transport costs.

Available in various sizes to cover a wide range of production, the machines of the HEVS series are available in the filler/capper, rinser/filler/capper versions or in the innovative ECOBLOC® version where the ENOBERG filler-capper block is combined with the SMI stretch-blow moulder.

PET bottles are transported inside the machine through an air conveyor. The bottle flow is regulated using a pneumatically operated gate which, depending on the condition of plant production, enables or blocks the bottles transfer to the first star wheel.

Bottles coming from the air conveyor are transported towards the rinser. This transfer is performed through a rotating star wheel which receives the bottles from the air conveyor, handling them by the neck, and transports them towards the rinsing carousel.

The bottle coming from the star wheel reaches the rinsing turret where a rubber gripper grabs the bottle neck, and by using a mechanical cam system inverts the bottle (180 degrees) in order to have the bottle lip aligned with its rinsing nozzle. The nozzle is activated, dispensing water or air depending on the filling product and on the customers preference. At the end of the rinsing phase, the bottle is inverted again, coming back to the initial position. The bottle is ready to be moved to the rinsing carousel. Each rinsing turret is equipped with a “no bottle-no spray" system: a sensor placed close to the rinser inlet detects the presence of the bottle. In the event that no bottle is detected, the correspondent turret will not perform any rinsing operation.

Bottles coming from the rinser are moved towards the filler. This transfer is performed through a rotating star wheel which collects the bottles from the rinsing turret, handling them by the neck, and transports them towards the filling carousel.

The bottle coming from the star wheel reaches the filling turret where the neck holder, directly connected with the filling valve, bring the bottle in contact with the filling valve in order to allow the filling. The product tank, located inside the filling carousel, is specially designed to hold high pressure. At the beginning of the filling, when the bottle is in contact with the valve, CO2 is injected inside the bottle in order to increase the pressure in the bottle and have a filing without loss of CO2 from the product and reducing foam creation while filling. The filling is electronic with volumetric flow meter. Each filling valve has a dedicated flow meter. When the filling starts, the flow meter detect the quantity of product going inside the bottle and stops the filling when reach the pre-set value from the format in use. While the product goes inside the bottle, the CO2 goes out from a dedicated channel. When the set filling volume is reached, the filling valve is closed and the sniff/decompression is done. A dedicated channel bring the pressure inside the bottle in a dedicated manifold and from there out of the filling area. The filled bottle is ready to be transferred to the capper. Each filling unit has a “no bottle-no fill” system: if the bottle is missing there is no filling.

Bottles coming from the filler are moved towards the capper. This transfer is performed through a rotating star wheel which collects the bottles form the filling turret, handling them by the neck, and transports them towards the capping turret.

The bottle coming from the star wheel reaches the capping turret where a star shaped mould allows the bottle centering under the corresponding capping turret. The cap coming from caps feeding system is picked up by means of a star wheel called "pick and place". The capping head collects the cap from the star wheel and it applies the cap to the bottle. Depending on the cap to be applied (plastic screw cap or plastic pressure cap), the capping system may be rotating or by-pressure. The rinsed, filled and capped bottle is ready to be moved to the outlet conveyor. Each capping turret is equipped with "no bottle-no cap" system: in the event that no bottle is detected under the capping turret, the cap will not be applied.

The rinsed, filled and capped bottles are transported out of the machine through an air conveyor. This conveyor is equipped with automatic height adjustment which allows the bottle point of support to be tailored to the bottle height.



  • Modular structure which can be customized;
  • Compact filling module which minimizes the number of stars for bottle handling, while ensuring an easy access for maintenance and cleaning;
  • Modular framework which allows optimization of the shipping dimensions, cutting the transport costs and making the machine suitable for standard road transport;
  • Low operating and maintenance costs;
  • Low risk of contamination, high level of hygiene;
  • Excellent price performance ratio.

Standard accessories

Each EVF/EMF machine is provided with:

  • Independent movement of the machine axes through ICOS brushless motors with integrated control. Each motors parameter can be checked through HMI;
  • Guarding in tempered glass;
  • Dummy bottles installed in proximity to each filling valve;
  • 7” HMI (Human Machine Interface) touch screen, supplied by SMITEC;
