Cyclone-Series Bottle Unscrambler


The Cyclone-series Bottle Unscrambler is a compact and simple-to-operate, packaging machine that accepts bulk plastic containers and orients them onto a conveyor.

  • Bulk Supply Hopper - The integrated bulk supply hopper (approximately 15-cubic feet) with elevator automatically conveys containers to the disc sorter.
  • Sorting - A rotating disc sorts containers into a single file along the pre-orienter’s wall. Containers exit through an opening provided in the sorter.
  • Orienting - Containers travel along an adjustable horizontal channel stopping on a set of dispenser doors. When the doors swing open, the container drops into a vertical chute with a neck-up orientation.
  • Discharging - A rotating star wheel at the base of the vertical chute indexes containers onto the discharge conveyor.
