Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19752263A1] The invention relates to a cleaning system, comprising a spray device which is supplied with a pressurised cleaning liquid and which is arranged along a bottle transporting device (12). The cleaning system has several nozzles (2, 3) located both above and on both sides of the bottle heads (14) on a nozzle pipe (1), and cleaning liquid is directed onto the screw thread (15) and collar (16) of the bottle head (14) by means of these nozzles. The invention also relates to a method for pre-cleaning bottle heads (14). According to said method, a pre-cleaning liquid is sprayed onto the bottle head (14), including the screw thread (15) and the collar (16), as closely behind the unscrewing device (10) as possible. This takes place when an optical sensor (11) detects an impurity on the bottle head (14), and by means of the nozzles of a spray device which are positioned alternately vertically (2) and laterally (2).
