Bouteille eau

100 Claranor machines on the water market are in operation in 22 countries!

Mainly cap decontaminating machines, flat or sport cap, but also Puls’Combi solutions offering decontamination of the cap and the preform neck. Our equipment has been installed on new lines but also during renovations of bottling lines, in partnership with many equipment manufacturers or directly by our technicians.

The growth of this market is linked, in emerging countries, to raising awareness of health risks due to consumption of non-potable water; in developed countries, awareness of the risks linked to excessive consumption of sugary drinks.

As soon as the water needs a demineralization or reverse osmosis treatment – which is the case in all countries where the water does not come from natural sources but is drawn from the soil, its natural microbial balance is affected. The germs contained in the packaging no longer have to compete with the original flora which has been eliminated, they can grow!


Sterilization of the packaging is then necessary.

To meet this growing demand Claranor has developed 2 types of equipment

For speeds below 16,000 bph Claranor Essential

A solution that combines the efficiency of pulsed light with an attractive TCO, compared to existing UV solutions on the market. A solution also well suited to large containers such as 5 Gallons which give water increased sensitivity.

For speeds up to 100,000 bph, much in demand in Asia, Claranor High speed

A patented solution that allows the replacement of chemical disinfection, UV solutions having no effectiveness at these speeds, thus offering a solution without risk of chemical residues in the product and respectful of the environment – without effluents to manage.

For even more sensitive waters: a Puls’Full Cap solution

This Claranor pulsed light sterilization solution allows the decontamination of the 2 faces of the caps, thus avoiding any risk of cross contamination. Puls’Full Cap is a very compact and economical alternative to H202 tunnels.
