‘Infrared heat for hot juices in glass bottles’ - .PDF file.

The Britvic factory handles a range of fruit juices. The juices are pasteurised prior to filling to temperatures in the region of 80ºC; glass bottles arrive on the line at ambient temperatures. When filling glass bottles, there is a significant danger of sufficient thermal shock to cause cracking/bottle failure if the temperature difference between fluid and glass is greater than around 42ºC. The production facility installed at Britvic consists of a 4m-long infrared oven from Heraeus Noblelight with a total power of 109.2kW, split into three zones.
