Does pulsed-light packaging sterilization apply to your products?
From water to yoghurt, juices or beer, pulsed-light packaging sterilization is suitable for a wide range of products.
Pulsed light is already used by majors players in the beverages market as an efficient and reliable solution for the packaging sterilization on:
- Bottled water: to reduce or remove ozone;
- Sensitive drinks: to sterilize without chemicals or water;
- Still drinks: to reduce the amount of preservatives;
- Hot-filled drinks: to simplify the process and to lighten the preform (eliminate the need to turn the bottles upside down to ensure cap decontamination by heat);
- Carbonated drinks and wine: to maintain the stability when carbonation or alcohol levels are not sufficient and to maintain the quality and taste of the product (no residue).
Fresh dairy products are sensitive environments which are subject to microbiological spoilage which prompts packers to decontaminate the packaging before filling.
Claranor offers in-line sterilization equipment for cups, caps and aluminum lids used in the processed dairy product packaging process on ultra-clean or ESL lines. The equipment is suitable for linear or rotary fillers.
The in-line technology fully complies with shelf life requirements for chilled products, and:
- there is no risk of chemical residue in the packaging;
- there is no need for outside treatment as required for gamma irradiation.
