There are all kinds of glass wine bottles on the market, so what are the little-known secrets of glass wine bottles? The following will be popularized by the technical staff of Shandong Yuncheng Ruisheng Glass Co., Ltd.
In addition to the quartz sand, the glass wine bottles we saw were actually made of a mixture of four materials. These materials are all mineral oxidants, and each is very cheap and common. The glass characteristics formed after mixing together are not soluble in water, but also have strong strength. The addition of additional materials to the wine bottle glass is not over yet. If you pay attention to observation, some wine bottles will use transparent glass, this situation is more obvious in white wine. But most red wine bottles are green, because this color can absorb ultraviolet light and prevent it from passing through the glass. Ultraviolet rays will make wine aging, that is to say, put the wine in the sun. Without these green glasses to absorb ultraviolet rays, the wine cannot be stored for too long, which shortens the storage time and life of the wine.
The production of glass wine bottles must be very sturdy; most of today’s liquor is bottled in a mechanized way, and the process is very streamlined; when the bottles arrive at the winery, they are usually sealed with adhesive tape on each tray, and the adhesive tape is mechanically sealed Tear open, and then wash the bottle with hot water. After the workers have dried the bottles, they will be fed into the bottle machine row by row. The machine will extend the throat into the bottle, inject the wine into the bottle in a semi-vacuum or with inert gas, and then put it into the cork.
During this process, the pressure on the wine bottle is very high. If there is a blast during this period, it will cause a very large loss. Because the machine enters the wine at a high speed, it only takes a few seconds to fill a bottle. At this time, the blasting, the machine will not stop for a while, there will be a large amount of liquor spouted out of the ground. Workers also have to stop the machine to reset it, and perform a thorough cleaning before it can be turned on again. Therefore, the hardness and robustness of the glass bottle are very important to the winery. Some wineries will add inspection machines to continuously irradiate each wine bottle with laser before entering the machine to check whether there are cracks. Once found, the wine bottle will be automatically removed. Take it away and don’t let it into the machine.
