Technical DetailsMain UnitComponentsAccessoriesRequest More Information

The Cime Careddu Silver bottling machine has a base that consists of a tubular AISI 304 stainless steel frame and steel plates. Once assembled, the upper plate is processed and painted and the base is completely covered with panels that are made of high-quality AISI 304 stainless steel.

The base has adjustable feet that meet the regulations in terms of height and allow for the leveling of the machine. These are located in the lower part of the base.

The Silver bottling machine was specifically designed and built for easy operation and cleaning, rapid replacement of accessories, and simple maintenance.

The four sides of the Cime Careddu Silver model base are kept closed by mechanically locked safety panels made of AISI 304 stainless steel. However, these can be easily removed by authorized personnel for any internal maintenance that may be needed on the drive and the transmission units, the clutch star unit that contains devices for automatic stopping in case of problems, and the carousel that allows for rotation of the upper part of the bottle-lifting cylinders.

The base also accommodates various motorized units internally. These allow for height adjustment of the filling machine and any add-on turrets (machines and devices) that are required for operation of the machine. These include the rinsing unit, de-aerator, distributor, capping unit, an inspection unit, and the device used to do wire-hooding. Any adjustment of the machine can be performed manually or electronically depending on the type of machinery used.

The transmission operates through gear wheels made of steel or thermoplastic resin (polyamide). These are mounted so that there is no contact with the steel, in this way reducing the noise level as much as possible.

Safety guards

The safety guards of the Silver model comprise an AISI 304 stainless steel frame that is combined with transparent panels that allow constant visual control by whoever is working with the machine. The sides of the frame are covered with mechanically fixed panels, while the front and the rear have electrically protected doors that give access to the machine for maintenance. Only skilled personnel should undertake maintenance and the machine must be at a standstill with the necessary safety devices inserted.

Micro-switches are installed on the central carousel of the rinsing machine, as well as in the star unit. The function of these switches is to stop the machine instantaneously if the bottles fall over or are not totally vertical.

Control Panel

There is an electrical control panel with a programmable logic controller (PLC) that forms part of the protective structure. It incorporates an inverter, a display unit, and low voltage controls, all built according to established international VDE standards The inverter in the electrical panel is activated by a potentiometer that allows for variation of the machine speed.

The alphanumeric display (or touch screen graphic terminal if preferred as an upgrade) shows all the bottling information and the machinery’s possible alarm alerts. These include open guards, insufficient bottle inflow, and excessive bottle outflow.

The PLC allows programming all the necessary functions for the proper operation processes of the machine.
Additionally, the electrical system and the control panel are fully CE compliant.

Filling Unit

Filling Machine

The Cime Careddu Silver series unit has an annular (ring-shaped) tank for fillers with 44 valves and a full tank for fillers between 8 and 40 valves. Annular tanks can be provided for 12 to 40 valves if this is what customers want.

Automatic feeding devices for the product are also installed and analog signals can be provided if needed, along with the regulators required to optimize production flow. The filling valves are mounted on the lower part of the tank together with the mechanism that positions and centers the containers.

The machine was specifically designed and built for easy operation and cleaning, as well as rapid replacement of accessories, and for simple maintenance. All parts of the machine that come into contact with the product being bottled are made of AISI 304 stainless steel (or higher quality AISI 316 if preferred) and can be cleaned with hot water and chemical products, or they can be sterilized using steam.

The rotating table has been completely clad in AISI 304 stainless steel and it is mounted on two centering bearings and ball thrust bearings. Alternatively, it comes mounted on a thrust block and centering bearing for small-to-medium size machines, or on a thrust block and support for large machines that form the support for the bottle-lifting cylinders and the ring (air chamber) air to the cylinders.

The bottles (via screws, stars, conveyors and conveyor belts) are placed on the lifting cylinders by a compressed air pneumatic-mechanical system that filters and lubricates the system. This enables the bottles to be lifted up softly to the filling valves so as to ensure that they are centered correctly without being damaged.

A cam that ensures a perfect outflow to the filled bottle from the filling machine is used for the cylinder descent. This mechanical movement re-uses the air in the descending cylinders and sends it to the cylinders during the lifting phase, also minimizing air pressure consumption.

A tank that allows height adjustment depending on the size of the bottles to be filled is connected to the lower carousel via the lifting device. It is electrically activated and comes standard with machines that have 20 valves and more, but is optional for filling machines with 8 to 16 valves.


SILVER Series Valves

The Silver series machinery is designed for bottling still liquid products, that don’t contain CO2.

This range of machinery is ideal for bottling easy-flowing liquid products like water and more dense products like oils.

In addition to water and oil, this series of machinery is ideal for bottling fruit juices and still wines using either hot or cold filling processes.



The Silver series machine’s tank/basin comprises an annular (ring-shaped) tank for filling machines with 44 valves and more and a full tank for filling machines with 8 to 40 valves. Additionally, an annular tank is available upon request for 12 to 40-valve filling machines.

The interior surface of the container is mirror polished to enable easy and safe sterilization. It is made of AISI 304 stainless steel unless customers prefer to order an even higher quality AISI 316 product.

Automatic wire-hooding machines are designed for the distribution and closure of wire hoods.

These machines come equipped with an automatic wire-hood extraction and distribution system, intermittent movement bottle conveyors, and electronic controls for incoming bottles and bottle output overflow.

All the functions of these machines are managed by the PLC and inverter located in the centralized electrical control cabinet.

Dosing Turret

Dosing Turret

The dosing device is composed of a:

  • distributor rotating body supporting the injection head
  • dual chamber dosing device with screw for dose adjustment
  • central shaft with control boxes for height adjustment for various bottle formats
  • injection heads with centering bells and an opening valve for product flow that is controlled by the ascent of the bottle
  • support rotating table for the bottle lifting pistons with control cam (in the rotary version)

Capping Turret

Capping Turret

Our capping turrets can cap any bottle with any cap.

They can be subdivided into four types made for:

  • crown caps
  • natural and synthetic corks suitable for either wine or champagne
  • plastic caps of either the mushroom, pressure or pre-threaded type
  • threaded aluminum caps

All four types of capping turrets are available in a single-head version (for a maximum production of roughly 2,500-3,000 b/h) and multi-head form for higher production rates.

The high level of technology that characterizes the capping turrets means that even small single-head machines can utilize high technology features that are every bit as good as those of more complex multi-head machines.

Deaeration Turret

Deaeration Turret

The de-aeration section of the bottling machine, which may be mono-head or multi-head, is ideal for products, like wine that is badly affected by oxidation. Its cycle can be divided into two steps, carried out in the same section:

  1. The air is removed from the bottle with a high vacuum pump.
  2. The neutral gas (nitrogen or carbon dioxide) is injected into the bottle before it is filled.

Once these two steps have been completed the bottle goes into the filling machine and the neutral gas found inside the bottle is transferred to the tank. This ensures that the wine in the container does not come into contact with the air in the bottle, which could cause carbonation.

Rinsing / Inspection Turret

Rinsing / Inspection Turret

The rinsing turrets feature a semi-automatic electrical system (where provided) that adjusts the height of the grippers as the bottles pass by. The bottles coming from the conveyor belt are positioned to correspond with the grippers that firmly seize the bottles around the neck. Heavy bottles are lifted from the base with the help of a support.

When the carousel rotates the grippers are overturned by means of a tubular guide or twist and guided to the nozzle washing level.

All these machines are made of AISI 304 stainless steel (or AISI 316 if required). The plastic parts are made of certified food materials.

An intercepting solenoid valve designed to shut off the rinsing fluid automatically stops the flow every time the machine stops and reactivates it when it is restarted. In addition to the traditional fixed nozzle, an optional mobile nozzle system that goes inside the bottles is available to improve the washing procedure of the bottles.

A second rinsing or blowing cycle is also available to provide a double treatment. After rinsing, the “dripping” phase takes place. This ends when the gripper starts to once again rotate downwards by placing the bottles in the star unit, which will bring them back onto the conveyor belt and direct them towards the filling turret.

The machine’s injection system is built in such a way to prevent the injection phase on the grippers that, for whatever reason, have not lifted up a bottle. This device avoids any upward splashing that could wet both the machine and the surrounding environment.

The functions of the inspection machine are similar to those of the rising turret.

The bottles, already filled and capped, are turned upside down using the same mechanism as the rinsing machine. This machinery does not have a valve for washing but it is used to establish whether there are any foreign objects inside the bottle. Once the bottles are turned upside down they pass in front of a panel with bright lamps. If any irregularity is detected the bottle is discarded and removed from the production cycle.
