Aragac water technology

“Aragac” spring purified water manufacturing technology

The filtered drinking spring water “Aragac” bottling technology meets the basic requirements of hygiene for bottling and consists of the following steps:

  • transportation of spring  water to the plant through a pipeline,
  • processing (matching taste, smell and color through the activated coal filter, filtration and purification through reverse-osmosis method),
  • water storage,
  • container washing/rinsing,
  • bottling,
  • cap sealing,
  • defect elimination,
  • coding,
  • labeling,
  • packing,
  • warehousing,
  • water quality control in laboratory during the whole technological process.

Bottling is done in rinsed polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles or rinsed polycarbonate containers. PET bottles are directly blown during the manufacturing process. Rinsing is done with hydrogen peroxide of 1-5 mg/l solution or processed water containing 0.01-0.1mg/l ozone. Bottles are automatically transferred to the bottling machine.  Bottling is done in automatic pouring cameras by isobar method. Cap sealing is done automatically under the permanent control of operators of production and quality control. Cap sealing machine is placed in bottling machine - this guarantees bottled product sterility during the period of shelf-life. Sealed bottles are coded by the coding laser machine. Manufacturing date, time and batch are marked on every bottle. Finished product is labeled by attractively designed labels. After labeling the product is packed with thermal shrink film by the automatic packing machine. Packed products are stored in special dry and protected from direct sunlight warehouse premises with 5-20°C temperature, on pedestals that are buffering the bottles from contacts with the walls or the floor. Shelf-life period of product is 24 months from the manufacturing date.
