Midland install bottle conveyor for Saint Gobain, Atlanta, Georgia.
Midland Handling Equipment have just finished installing a 150m Omnitrak light conveyor system at Saint Gobain’s bottle coating facility in Georgia, USA. The Omnitrak is a specially designed inverted bottle conveyor with a narrow pitch of 50mm for maximum product capacity. This system includes powered sprocket rotators to spin the bottles during the coating process. The bottles are sprayed with a unique type of glass coatings before being conveyed into an oven for curing. This type of bottle coating is becoming ever so popular due to its efficiency and cost saving benefits over producing coloured glass. This is the tenth bottle conveyor Midland have sold to Saint Gobain for this process. Saint Gobain also have 2 overhead chain conveyors at their pipelines facility in Telford, UK.
