Aseptic technologies

Aseptic technology development has marked a turning point in the food industry. Thanks to these technologies, products as common as milk, fruit juices, vegetable creams, etc; can now be processed and packaged whilst retaining their initial properties: organoleptic qualities and nutritional properties. Shelf life is extended and products can be easily distributed.

The idea behind aseptic technology is to stabilize the product enzymatically and microbiologically by exposing it to high temperatures for short periods. Cooling takes place immediately after so that vitamins and fresh product qualities are preserved.

Different heating systems have been developed depending on the products qualities and acidity.

UHT systems are used for low acid products with a pH greater than 4.6 such as milk, soybeans, etc.

For products of high acidity, with a pH lower than 4.6, such as fruit juices and some vegetables;
pasteurization systems are most commonly used.

The pasteurization of dairy products differs from other pasteurization systems as only certain microorganisms are destroyed, and there is no need to reach complete sterilization. This is why pasteurized dairy products need to be stored in a refrigerator.

We categorise aseptic technologies into three different groups:

Aseptic processing: pasteurization and UHT systems
Aseptic storage – used for storing products in factories or for industrial distribution - aseptic tanks or drums
Aseptic Packaging: In Carton, PET, Aseptic Bag

MachinePoint Engineering has an unreachable reputation for installing complex aseptic processes. We have over 25 years of experience installing aseptic lines for the dairy, beverage and agro-food industries.
