Most bottling facilities utilize industrial air compressors in San Jose to blow glass bottles. The type of industrial air compressor that is used will depend upon the size, shape, and style of the glass bottles being produced, as well as the production demands of the bottling facility. While almost everyone uses glass bottles in their day-to-day lives, not many are aware of the air compressor process by which glass bottles are produced.
Watch this video for a fascinating, step-by-step look at how glass bottles are made. You’ll learn about the materials that comprise glass, how the glass is melted, and how jars and bottles are then formed from the molten glass. Once the glass comes out of the glass mold, it enters a blow mold, where an industrial air compressor system stretches the glass and creates the final shape of the bottle.
