Lay down conveyors are commonly used in bottling plants to assist in bottle sterilisation. Lay down conveyors are generally used on hot-fill production lines or on a line that has a sterilisation process to sterilise the lid of the bottle. Lay down conveyors progressively and gently tilt the bottles from the vertical to the horizontal and then back to the vertical plane to allow for the relevant sterilisation process to occur and are suitable for PET, HDPE and Glass Bottles or Jars.
Lay down conveyors are manufactured using a slat chain and therefore seamlessly integrate with your new or existing slat chain conveyors on the infeed and outfeed of the lay down.
