Bottles are placed in the main hopper when a live bottom transfers all of the bottles to a compact elevator. This system allows several boxes of bottles to be loaded at a time. Bottles are elevated to a rotary sorter from which they exit end to end. Containers progress to the orientor belts where they are accelerated for separation, bottles are turned to be neck trailing as they pass the hook, after which they are temporarily turned upside down when cleaned (container inverting system, vacuum and air ionizer are optional). After being up righted, the side belts deposit the containers onto any new or existing table top conveyor.
