“We bought our original 2 PDC neck banding systems in the early 80s, for tamper evidence. They are true work-horses, running 20 hours a day, 5 days a week. We neck band at 150-200 bottles per minute, running PVC bands that are 68 to 42 lay-flat size, 2-3 mil gauge. We are literally the poster kids for systems that run continuously and reliably.
We now have 5 PDC systems and use them for all of our sauces. The equipment’s only downtime was following Katrina, when, after being in 5’ of water, they had to be refurbished. They were returned to service immediately – they are incredibly robust systems.”
