HOW IT WORKS
Gripper Disc Bottle Unscramblers utilize a feature known as the "Bowl" to being the process of organizing containers to move down the line. The bowl has rotating discs within it to help keep containers in their right position which is either neck leading or neck trailing. The rotating discs in the bowl are cut in a special way to allow this positioning to happen, so containers do not go into the line in the vertical position. The Gripper Disc Bottle Unscrambler acts in the same way as theGripper Disc Bottle Unsrambler but uses a "carousel" (gripper belt) feature where the containers are put into the neck trailing position. The carousel is where the hook or loop is located that grabs onto the neck of the container to flip it into the neck trailing position. Gripper Disc Bottle Unscramblers only allow neck trailing containers to continue down the line.
Gripper Disc Bottle Unscramblers use of compact unscrambling makes them common use in production lines, before they reach filling, capping, rinsing, and labeling machines. Pharmaceutical and Beverage industries are mostly tapped for the use of Gripper Disc Bottle Unscrambling machines. Containers that are used include plastic bottles, jars, pill bottles, and different shaped containers. Depending on containers being used in the machine and modifications or machine type, production speeds can reach from 30 units/min up to 100 units/min.

Why it is Used with Unscramblers?
Gripper Disc Bottle Unscramblers may sometimes have a Bulk Feeder Elevator that is attached to it to allow the unscrambler bowl to be fed automatically instead of manually.
A flighted belt is used to take containers from a hopper to be fed into the Gripper Disc Bottle Unscrambler from a desired height.
Elevator operation is started and stopped by a switch that will monitor the fill level of the container feeder hopper(bowl).
