Sipa provided an update on the early adopters of its latest oven technology for its stretch blowmolding systems. The new "green" ovens were originally launched on Sipa's SFR EVO3 rotary systems, which came onto the market in 2013. Since then, the technology was expanded to other SFL linear blowmolding systems. Now, customers with existing standard equipment can also get the oven upgrades.
The company claims that several major customers have already opted for the new "green" ovens. In production of bottles in formats from 0.75 L to 1.5 L, for mineral water, carbonated soft drinks, and milk, they are reporting energy savings of over 40%-and in one case beyond 46%.
