Pulsed light technology is a cleantech process that utilizes short duration pulses of intense, broad-spectrum light for the sterilization of packaging surfaces. All kind of germs, even spores, are immediatly killed.
Several clear advantages for pulsed light sterilization have been highlighted by the industry compared to conventional processes for similar decontamination levels :
Pulsed-light technology is a “WYSIWIG” (“What You See is What You Get”) technology , meaning that only visible zones are decontaminated: shadow is the enemy and specific cap geometries are the challenges.
Part of Claranor's know-how and expertise consists of designing new reflectors in order to reduce shadow zones to a minimum.
We now have effective solutions able to decontaminate:
- all types of caps, ranging from flat caps, sport caps and 5-gallon caps to metal-crown caps and long-necks
Since 2006 we have developed a wide range of versions, from single to double to multiple cabinet. This last one allows the treatment of different types and shapes of caps with the same equipment.
- Different neck diameters (from <30mm to 50mm)
Claranor's equipment for preform neck sterilization is integrated into the preform chute upstream of the blowing step (preform necks).

Our sterilization process is suitable:
Our units can be installed on a linear or a rotary filling line, with a max speed of 60 strokes/mn.
The aluminum foil lid or plastic lid can be treated by pulsed light, achieving high decontamination levels:
from 3 log to 5 log reduction on bacteria and mold.
The Claranor foil treatment is suitable for ultraclean filling lines.
Claranor has supplied numerous leading equipment manufacturers and market leaders in the beverages and dairy markets worldwide. What about you?
