Cycle of Production
Lauretana mineral water is bottled in Graglia , in the province of Biella, not far from the artesian source : not to damage the molecules of the water, the procedure lasts from eight to ten seconds and it happens without pressure, so as to preserve to the best taste, quality and natural lifespan, without any risk of bacteriological contamination.
Since the water reaches your table as it springs from the source, without any treatment or forcing, the production cycle is linked to the weather: in winter months, when it rains less and the low temperatures risk to freeze the water, the production pace slows down.
Over the years the technological investment of the Firm has always been constant. Today all the production lines are completely renewed and of the latest generation, with hygienic systems of control in the forefront.
The bottling lines are three : the first one is dedicated to Pet bottles – acronym for polyethylene terephthalate, a recyclable, unbreakable and very light material, - and it has a production capacity of about 20.000 bottles per hour. To support the production line of the plastic bottles there is a Krones blowing machine, equipped depending on the molds and the preforms - from 0,5 litres, 1 litre and 1,5 litres -, that through the air blowing at high temperatures inside the preforms reaches a production capacity of 10.000 bottles per hour.
The third bottling line of the Glass is exclusively dedicated to the foreign markets with the possibility to change rapidly size introducing smaller ones, to be able to react promptly to the demand of international deliveries.
All the machinery, in the forefront and in step with the latest requirements of the market, are manufactured by Krones and Acmi, firms leaders in the field that grant the highest standards of quality and safety.
