Any questions about packaging sterilization or Pulsed Light, please contact them!
To date, there are about ten Claranor machines installed in Poland dedicated to the sterilization by pulsed light of packaging for sauces and especially ketchup.
Since 2019, several sauce giants have been using Claranor as a solution to decontaminate their packaging before cold filling. The powerful flashes of the pulsed light destroy bacteria and moulds.
- 2018 : 1 line – cup and film decontamination
- 2019 : 2 new lines – film’s decontamination – client specifications: 3 log reduction on Aspergillus brasiliensis
- 2019 : 2 new lines of 41 mm x 42.5 mm plastic caps, decontamination at 12,000 bph
- 2019: retrofitted line for plastic caps with 44mm x 42.5 mm aluminum liner at speed rate of 6,000 bph
- 2020 : retrofitted line – film decontamination – client requirement: 3 log reduction and output of 6 000 bph
Manufacturers of pasteurized acid products are more and more numerous to chose the sterilization of their packaging (caps, sticks …) by Claranor pulsed light, because it allows them to produce increasingly natural products, without preservatives, stored at room temperature and filled hot or cold.
In 2020 a famous dairy alternative producer called twice on Claranor, he now uses pulsed light to decontaminate its packaging for margarine. The Claranor cabinets are installed on 2 lines both retrofitted. One of the cabinets decontaminates plastic films for a 3 log reduction while the other one is located on a 120 mm x 150 mm plastic tubs / tubs line on a 60 strokes / min. line.
The Claranor pulsed light offers sterilization without risk of chemical residue in the packaging (tubs and heat seals) and preserves the quality of sensitive products such as lighter products, which are more sensitive due to their high water content. More information on Claranor equipment adapted to plant-based market.
Two news equipment will be installed in 2021 on tubs and film lines.
Water and Sensitive drinks
The first equipment integrated by Claranor in Poland was for a sensitive drink filling line, in 2011, a cap decontamination unit installed on a new line of a famous OEM. Flat and sports cap 28 mm and 38 Speed-line rate: 40 000 bph.
Since in 2018, another famous equipment manufacturer has been using Claranor pulsed light to decontaminate 30.4/31.5 mm x 15.25/15.4 mm plastic caps on a retrofitted water bottle production line. Claranor adapts to the line and its output, here it is 31,500 bph.
In 2020, a famous water producer integrated Claranor Pulsed light equipment
to sterilize bottlenecks.
Claranor preserves the organoleptic properties of your water and its source, no neoformed disinfectant residue in the packaging, and allows the reduction or elimination of ozone. The Claranor packaging sterilization process is suitable for both small and large containers (up to 5 gallons), cap (internal, or both sides of the cap sterilization), aluminum foil, and bottleneck.
This year 2020 was also the occasion for a famous equipment manufacturer specialized in dairy products to trust again in the power of Claranor technology. The Claranor pulsed light was therefore installed on a new line to sterilize plastic caps measuring 40 mm x 10.5 mm of dairy products on a line with an average output of 30,000 bph.
Since 2012 this famous manufacturer trusts the Claranor technology and has therefore decided to call on us again. Indeed, after having tested and approved our Pulsed Light packaging sterilization equipment, the choice was obvious.
Dairy packaging sterilization excludes any risk of chemical residues and offers a compact sterilization solution that can be integrated into line retrofits. It is also much more effective than UVC treatment on moulds (Comparative test results LP vs UVC on request).
A cost attractive solution compared to chemical solutions with only 3 kW for 30,000 cph.
