Carbonated Drinks processing

Carbonated Drinks engineering services
Carbonated drinks are an invention that have been very successful and greatly accepted by the mass consumer market in the last century. The carbons that are used for sterilizing purposes to extend drinks´self life, makes the distribution and storage of carbonated soft drinks much easier than that of non-carbonated soft drinks.

The general recipe for a soft drink is a concentrate of specific fruit flavors, sugar and deaerated water.

The mixing process is usually carried out in a continuous mixing method before the liquid is chilled and carbonated in a carbonator. MachinePoint Engineering also supplies molecular filtration systems to remove carbon contaminants.

In some processes micro filtration or tangential filtration can be used. Carbonated Soft drinks are normally filled with isobarometric filling machines.
The packaging of soft drinks is of high priority due to marketing purposes.

MachinePoint Engineering supplies filling and packaging lines for soft drinks; and even the bottling and preform machines for those manufacturers that want to integrate the whole production within their factories.

As a general rule a typical carbonated drinks plant can include the following equipment:

  • Mixing and Blending Units
  • Storage Units
  • Sugar dissolving machines
  • Carbonator
  • Homogenizer
  • Pasteurizers
  • Dosing machines
  • Aseptic processing
  • Heat exchangers or other heat treatment machines
  • CIP & SIP
  • Clarification machines
  • Extracting line – if juice extracted directly from fresh fruit or vegetables
  • Blowmoulding machine and compressors
  • Rinser, Filler and Capper
  • Labelling machine
  • Packer
  • Shrink Wrapper
  • Palletizer
  • Pallet wrapper
