Bottles are blown directly from resin (primary raw material) instead of preforms (secondary raw material) which are typically used in the soft drink industry. The use of resin results in significant cost savings and a better quality of bottle. The resin is melted at a temperature of 250 degrees Celsius and then blown into the form or shape of a bottle, much like a balloon.
Equipment is computerized with programmable logic controllers (PLC’s), which allow the interface with all the machines to allow for a synchronous operation. The PLC’s have resulted in the elimination of ‘bottle necks’ and under supply problems typically associated with integrated conveyor systems. The plastic blow molding equipment is linked via modems to our principal machine supplier whereby real-time diagnosis / analysis / evaluation can be done on the spot, thus enhancing productivity and overall quality of product.
S.M. Jaleel uses state-of-the-art equipment to make preforms which delivers an average of 15000 preforms per hour. The preforms are made directly from resin (raw material) which is melted at a temperature of 250 degrees Celsius and then injected into the form or shape of a preform, much like a test tube. It is fully robotic, efficient, with minimal wastage and low energy consumption.
