This report covers the details of developing a design of a flower water distillation system with a filling and capping machine. A flower water system explores the production of the orange flower water by exploiting as much as possible the essential oils that are a by-product. A step by step description and study of the different parts of the project is presented in a simple manner supported by figures, schematics and diagrams from the very conceptual stage to the final implemented result. First after taking a general idea about the old method of distillation and its function, the design of a flower water distillation system is extracted in a suitable format in order to produce a sufficient quantity of the products that can meet the demand of the market. This design is separated into two parts: flower water distillation system and bottles filling and capping system. The first system consists of a cauldron where the flowers are put in to be boiled. The vapor obtained after boiling enters a heat exchanger for condensation. The condensed liquid enters a filter in order to separate the essential oil (Neroli oil) from the flower water and then goes into a storage tank. The second part consists of system of filling and capping the flower water bottles. Every empty bottle is driven by a conveyor and it is taken by a disk which turns to a position to start up the filling by opening the injector corresponding to it. The disk also turns causing the closing of the injector to let the bottle continues the path going towards the capping. At the end of this stage the filled bottle moves on another conveyor to storage.
