Dubai Crystal to install Sidel’s Matrix technology

DUBAI, May 4, 2015

The Dubai Crystal Mineral Water and Refreshments is set to upgrade its factory with leading global provider of PET solutions for liquid packaging Sidel’s Matrix Combi technology, for the first time in the UAE.

Due to be installed in August, Sidel Matrix Combi will help the Emirati bottler to produce PET water bottles in 330ml and 500ml formats at a speed 22,500 bottles per hour (bhp) and 1,500ml at a speed of 16,000 bhp.

Apart from Matrix Combi, Dubai Crystal Mineral Water and Refreshments will integrate Sidel’s recently launched StarLite base technology which gives added durability, stability, and overall resistance to the bottles.

It offers a more energy efficient method of production, allowing producers to achieve significant savings on energy and the amount of PET used for the overall production.

Shahdom Raheb, managing director of Dubai Crystal Mineral Water and Refreshments, said: “We have been looking to upgrade our factory with the latest solutions in packaging and bottling innovation, and we chose Sidel because of their proven capabilities and proficiency. With versatility and production savings for PET bottles, Sidel was the best option for us, and we are very certain that our consumers will feel the same.”

Sidel Matrix Combi brings together all the benefits of blowing and filling innovations in an integrated solution which delivers outstanding energy efficiency while simultaneously cutting costs.

The machine offers savings in raw materials with light or ultra-lightweight bottles, as well as, reduced consumption of air, water, chemicals and energy.

Harbinger Kathuria, regional commercial director of Greater Middle East at Sidel, said: “The Combi's overall efficiency, its compact size, ergonomic design, easy maintenance and lower energy consumption can all contribute to further reductions in producers' costs. We are confident that the line will help Crystal Water meet their objectives in the market and achieve operational excellence.” - TradeArabia News Service
