Bottling and Canning


Paxton has served the canning and bottling industry for more than half a century.  They understand the importance of drying technology that can enhance speed and productivity for bottling and canning facilities as well as ensure the highest quality. All Paxton systems (such as bottle rinser machines) are custom engineered to meet the specific needs of the package type, the line configuration, and the quality standards.

Ionizing Cap Rinser

Soda Can Rinsing

A major beverage manufacturer in drought-ridden California was looking to replace its water rinsing system prior to the filler with one of Paxton’s Ionizing Can Rinser systems. The system provided needed to be able to rinse up to 900 cans per minute with the two lines merging together before the filler.

The Paxton solution included two x 3 hp XT-300 Blowers each complete with NANO filtration for the outlet air, an 8 nozzle air manifold with internal ionizing bar, and failsafe controls. The installed Paxton system not only dramatically reduced the company’s water usage, but also maintained the high standards of product quality, as demonstrated by thorough QC testing.

 Replacing Water Rinser with Ionized Air Rinsing Solution

Replacing Water Rinser with Ionized Air Rinsing Solution

A brewery uses a water rinser for their cans in order to remove any debris from the can before filling it. Every canning company must go through this process, but this brewery company realized a significant increase in their water usage and expense. The brewery reached out to a colleague about their issue and found out about Paxton Ionized Air Rinsing solution. Paxton proposed a replacement of water rinsing to ionized air rinsing which will not only save on the cost of water and water disposal but also on the efficiency of removing debris from the can.

Bottle Drying

Drying Bottles of Varied Sizes

A Bottle manufacturer dries the tops of PET bottles ranging in size from 6 – 12 oz. The bottles are already labeled and dated coded. Similar to other bottling manufacturers, this manufacturer main focus is to remove water from the top and the center of the bottles before labeling. Currently, the manufacturer is using compressed air and off brand sypder arm solution.

The Paxton team was able to replace their compressed air usage with a 15hp blower running the CapDryer System, which has an adjustable mounting arm to cater to the different bottle sizes. With this solution in place the manufacturer will see fewer rejects and increased production speeds.

Sleeving Bottle

Sleeving Bottling

A sleeving manufacturer puts label sleeves on bottles. The manufacturer is using a competitor’s blower system. They are looking to replace the system because it is no longer at the original efficiency specified. The system consists of a blower and 12” compressed air knives and 3 flare nozzles. The sleeving manufacturer is needing a better solution to dry to bottles after the sleeving process and reached out to Paxton.

Paxton was be able to replace their original blower with a more efficient Paxton blower system, using less horsepower, with custom-made air knives and spyder arm air nozzles. Not only did Paxton improve the manufacturer’s drying problem but they also received a ROI in less than 2 years.
