Title (EN) A METHOD FOR CLEANING CAN BODIES AND A METHOD FOR IMPROVING A WASHING STAGE OF A PLURALITY OF CAN BODIES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE PRODUCTION DE CORPS DE CANETTE EN DEUX PARTIES
Abstract:
(EN) A method of cleaning can bodies (100) having a continuous sidewall closed at one end by an integral bottom portion opposite an open end is described. A can body transporter (11a) is populated a plurality of can bodies (100). The transporter (11a) transfers can bodies (100) through a can body washer apparatus (10) from an entry end to a delivery end. A plurality of spray bars (16a-h) are located between the entry end and the delivery end and delivers a washing solution (204) to the plurality of can bodies (100). A substantially constant can body population density is maintained on the can body transporter (11a) by controlling a speed of the can body transporter (11a) relative to a rate of production of can bodies (100) produced by an upstream can body making apparatus. A time duration of an exposure of the plurality of can bodies (100) to the solution (204) is controlled by regulating delivery of the solution (204).
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de nettoyage de corps de canette (100) ayant une paroi latérale continue fermée à une extrémité par une partie inférieure intégrée opposée à une extrémité ouverte. Un transporteur de corps de canette (11a) est peuplé d'une pluralité de corps de canette (100). Le transporteur (11a) transfère des corps de canette (100) à travers un appareil de lavage de corps de canette (10) d'une extrémité d'entrée à une extrémité de distribution. Une pluralité de barres de pulvérisation (16a-h) sont situées entre l'extrémité d'entrée et l'extrémité de distribution et fournissent une solution de lavage (204) à la pluralité de corps de canette (100). Une densité de population de corps de canette sensiblement constante est maintenue sur le transporteur de corps de canette (11a) par contrôle de la vitesse du transporteur de corps de canette (11a) par rapport à un taux de production de corps de canette (100) produits par un appareil de fabrication de corps de canette en amont. La durée d'exposition de la pluralité de corps de canette (100) à la solution (204) est contrôlée par régulation de la fourniture de la solution (204).
