Aseptic filling is slowly replacing the traditional hot filling systems as it better preserves the processed products' qualities.
Aseptic filling begun in the 1950s as a solution for packaging milk into carton bricks. Nowadays, the most popular forms of packaging are PET bottles, and pre multilayer plastic bags sterilized with gamma rays.
Paperboard Packaging – Brick Packing
When brick packing; sterilization, filling and product packaging all take place at the same time. Good systems ensure the hygiene conditions and maintain a strict control over the entire process.
The brick is firstly sterilized by using hydrogen peroxide and hot air. The product is then filled into the brick without air, this means that the brick is assembled by the filling process. Filling temperatures are between 4 to 30 ° C, so that the product does not suffer any changes.
MachinePoint Engineering has over 25 years of experience supplying and assembling aseptic lines for the beverage and food industries. We are pioneers in the South of Europe when it comes to the installation of aseptic technologies.
We produce aseptic lines for the packaging of dairies, soya products, wines, fruit and vegetable pastes and concentrates, liquids, etc. We pack in cartoon, brick, Gabel Top, Prisma, etc.
We do assembling lines from 4000 packages/hour, which is the minimum for aseptic processing.
As a result of looking for an alternative to the traditional glass bottle, PET bottle packaging was born. Nowadays PET packaging is a niche market with huge expansion. PET packaging allows to blow the performs in the factories, reducing hugely transport cost of empty bottles.
Also for large amounts, performs can be manufacture in house. A perform machines, a blow moulding machine and then the filling and packing line are required.
MachinePoint Engineering integrates perform, blow and filling and packaging lines from best brands with the product processing lines developed by us. Thanks to MachinePoint Used Machinery, that controls 80% of the used machinery for sales in Europe, access to used packaging machinery is possible for tighter budgets. We can also integrate used machinery in our complete plant projects.
