Blow moulding specialist PET Technologies has sold an automatic stretch blow moulding machine APF-3002 to Arion, a spring water bottler based in Ukraine.

The APF-3002 can produce 3,000bph, in sizes between 20cl and two-litre. The heater is equipped with eight-zone temperature control and enables production of a range of shaped, asymmetric PET bottles, such as the ergonomic and aesthetic design of Arion’s bottles. PET Technologies supplied the APF-3002 blower to form 1.5-litre bottles for carbonated and non-carbonated water.

Arion bottles the water that flows through underground rivers from the Carpathian Mountains, and markets this under the brand name Devaytis. It is said to require no additional filtering and is bottled straight from the spring.
