Getting the right amount of liquid into each bottle is a crucial step in the process. Overfilling shelves costs money and leaves customers feeling duped, while underfilling containers sends the wrong message. Because the foam will eventually settle or vanish, the packager must be cautious not to overfill the bottles with the foaming agent.
The overflow liquid filler, in instance, is a machine that can aid in the fight against foam bottle just by virtue of its design. Overflow filling machines use a specialised nozzle that fills bottles to the same level regardless of the differences in their internal volumes. As the nozzles lower, the bottle opening is sealed. When a certain threshold is reached, the liquid “overflows” through a return port and back into the machine’s tank.
For these purposes, we opted for a low-viscosity PET resin, AQUA NeoPET, which has an IV of 0.76 dL g1, a T m of 248°C, and a density of 1.34 g cm3. It was determined that certain ratios of pyrromellitic dianhydride.
The PET was dew-point dried (Gerco, Ennigerloh, Germany) for at least 24 hours at 130 degrees Celsius to remove any moisture to a level below 60 parts per million before being used in the extrusion process. A Karl Fischer-Coulometer C30S equipped with a Stromboli oven sample changer was used to calculate the percentage of residual moisture (Mettler Toledo, Columbus, OH).
Getting Sample From Foam
The PET sheets have noticeable foam coverings after calibrating. In order to achieve uniformly foamed samples, the skin must be removed due to its compactness and inhomogeneity. The final cutting was done with a Diadisc 6200.
Process of Preparing Multiple Samples
A co-rotating twin-screw extruder with an 11-mm screw diameter and a 150-rpm screw rotation speed was used for the compounding. While 240 degrees Celsius was selected for the first temperature zone, 270 degrees Celsius was used for the remaining zones. Using a water bath, the molten strand was cooled before being pelletized (Varicut, China, Shanghai, Jiading).
Gel permeation chromatography tests of the various samples were taken to determine how CE affected the molecular weight of the PET foams. GPC was used to calculate the molecular weight. Three PSS-PFG gel columns with a porosity range of 100 to 300 and a Gynkotec refractive index detector were used for the GPC analysis.
Fire Resistance Examinations
The i-Cone Cone Calorimeter by Fire Testing Technology (East Grinstead, United Kingdom) was used to conduct cone calorimeter tests at a heat flux of 35 kW m2 with a gap size of 25 mm in accordance with ISO 5660. Each sample was analysed three times.
Height of Foam
The camera captured a time-lapse of the foam’s evolution. Pixel heights in the horizontal plane were ignored in favour of their vertical counterparts. For this purpose, we established the heights of the top and bottom edges of the foam for each run and the constant heights of the bottle opening for each run. individual images.
