krones LavaClassic

Reliable cleaning in extreme conditions

Low-priced, robust technology krones LavaClassic

High air humidity, heat, sand, poor

bottle or label quality: Challenges
such as these are often an endur-
ance test for bottle washing systems.
Where other machines reach their
limits, the LavaClassic is at its peak
performance. For the structure, tech-
nology and operation of this com-
pact cleaning system are purposely
designed to easily master the most
difficult working conditions. Yet
for itself the LavaClassic demands
very little. For it is economical with
resources and operates without com-
plex automation – this modesty
makes the LavaClassic as likeable as it
is cost-efficient.

Water management krones LavaClassic

Every drop counts

Efficient water control

The water enters the machine in the
opposite direction to the bottle flow:
The fresh water is only used for rins-
ing the bottles. It then flows in a cas-
cade-like fashion through the individ-
ual post-treatment zones.

Needs-based fresh water supply

To keep consumption as low as possi-
ble, the supplying of fresh water can
be adjusted to the current demand.
If the machine stops, a control valve
immediately shuts off the supply.
Using an optionally available control
system, the quantity of fresh water
can also be adapted to different ma-
chine speeds.
Hygienic highlights krones LavaClassic

High level of safety with low operator attention

Clean Design
■■ The tank shape has no blind spots
thus preventing the formation of
dirt deposits
■■ Front doors across the entire
machine width allow the machine
to be dried quickly
■■ Open, easily accessible discharge
area keeps cleaning times short

Pump filter in the water zones

■■ Detachable sieves and pressure
filters in the post-treatment area
for coarse and fine dirt particles

Quick dirt removal

Filter systems ensure that dirt is
quickly removed from the LavaClassic.
This extends the service life of the
caustic and noticeably reduces the
machine operating costs. The dirt is
removed using: Open bottle chute
■■ Automatic dirt removal in the made of plastic sections
pre-jetting via sieving conveyor
■■ Dirt removal with sieving convey-
ors from the caustic baths
■■ Special cyclone in the pre-treat-

Spraying nozzle systems krones LavaClassic

Giving each bottle type a sparkling clean appearance

Interior cleaning
Rotating spraying nozzles clean the
bottle from different angles of inci-
dence. This guarantees that the com-
plete interior is evenly cleaned.
■■ The bottle is cleaned from differ-
ent angles of incidence
■■ Self-cleaning jetting units
■■ Feeding of the jetting units from
both sides

Exterior cleaning
The exterior is cleaned from above: Self-cleaning rotary jetting unit
Special jetting units deluge the bot-
tles with water and rinse away any
dirt and caustic residues.

Optional systems
Depending on the label decoration
for the bottle, LavaClassic can be
equipped with a further spraying
nozzle system:
■■ Jetting units for removing neck
ring labels
Bottle infeed and discharge krones LavaClassic

Reliable and noisless

The bottles enter the machine on a
conveyor belt. At the transfer point, a
so-called “infeed finger” raises them
and pushes them precisely into the
bottle pocket.

Special discharge fingers transport
