The DSC500 applies coatings to the outside of preforms, without contaminating the inside.

DSC500 This Delta Engineering spray coater applies a coating only on the outside of preforms, rather than both the interior and exterior of preforms.  

What’s new? The spray coater. It can be used in combination with other technologies; in particular, Delta Engineering has suggested a setup involving a host of new technologies: its ETN500 take-out system, the DCI500 inspection system developed in collaboration with Intravis Inc., Norcross, Ga.; and the DSB500 soft-drop unit.

Benefits Application to the outside of preforms, without contaminating the inside. This approach eliminates the potential for distorting the flavor or causing chemical reactions with the food or cosmetics that might eventually be contained in the bottle.
