Title
(EN) AIR RINSE AND TRANSPORT APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE RINÇAGE ET DE TRANSPORT À AIR
Abstract
(EN)
Air rinse and transport apparatus (10) comprises a bottle air-rinsing device (12) for air rinsing a turned bottle (16) with ionized air, and an air conveyor (14) for moving a bottle (16) to and/or from the air-rinsing device (12). The air conveyor (14) includes a bottle guide (24) along which a bottle (16) is moved by air pressure. The guide (24) is at least in part helical so as to turn a longitudinal extent of the said bottle (16). Preferably, the turning causes the said bottle to be inverted.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un appareil de rinçage et de transport à air (10), qui comprend un dispositif de rinçage à air de bouteille (12) pour rincer à l'air une bouteille (16) mise en rotation avec de l'air ionisé, et un transporteur à air (14) pour déplacer une bouteille (16) vers un dispositif de rinçage à air (12) et/ou à partir de celui-ci. Le transporteur à air (14) comprend un guide-bouteille (24) le long duquel une bouteille (16) est déplacée par une pression d'air. Le guide (24) est au moins en partie hélicoïdal, de façon à faire tourner une étendue longitudinale de ladite bouteille (16). De préférence, la rotation provoque le retournement de ladite bouteille.
