Equipment manufacturer with exclusive contract
In 2018, we developed with Steriline a new robotic system for decontaminating syringe trays, integrating a Claranor decontamination module: the Steriline RTDS2. This equipment offers manufacturers in the pharmaceutical sector, an economical alternative to gamma-irradiation.
In partnership with Guylegall, we are developing equipment for unstacking and conveying can lids and can ends to offer producers a pulsed light decontaminating solution for these kinds of packaging.
Major equipment manufacturer
In 2021 we have teamed up with R. Laurent to offer infant milk packers an integrated efficient solution to decontaminate and fit scoop cap/lid to products. Depending on the microbiological specifications, line constraints, speed, and available space, different decontamination solutions can be designed.
Laurent SA has been supporting SMEs and large industrial groups in the design and construction of packaging machines for more than 40 years.
They have real expertise in capping & lidding machines, positioners, and sorters.
The partnership helps manufacturers meet their demand for naturalness and greener processes. The Primoreels system allows the use of very thin films and the patented optimal layout, reduces film and overpack consumption, both giving producers significant material savings opportunities. Claranor Pulsed light lid decontamination, as a non-thermal treatment, is very well adapted to respect thin films.
In collaboration with Jean Bouteille, we have developed an autonomous bottle light sterilization module intended for installation in the furniture of the Fontaines de l’Occitane. These innovative fountains allow the distribution of bulk cosmetics.
Jean Bouteille supports the Zero waste transformation from distribution to consumption. “Our new business unit” Bulk for Brands “guides brands in the development of bulk distribution for their products in order to jointly create this new standard of consumption. Our service benefits from the 7 years of experience of the Jean Bouteille brand in the market liquid bulk. Thus, we develop and design solutions adapted for all types of brands and types of products: cosmetics, food, detergents etc. ”
Committed to reuse, Claranor has been a member of the Réseau Vrac association since 2021. Our objective within this network is to help reduce packaging by providing container decontamination solutions at the place of reuse. Our microbiological expertise and our responsible decontamination machines can provide concrete solutions at points of sale: management of cross-contamination, shelf life, product quality. We develop solutions for the food and cosmetic industries.
Réseau Vrac is a key player in the development of bulk sales. It is the only professional organization that federates all bulk sales professionals. In total, there are 1,900 professionals to date, suppliers, traders, store networks, project leaders. The objectives of the association are to develop this mode of consumption but also to professionalize its practices.
Aptar, world leader in the dispensing systems industry, has been working with Claranor since 2012 to evaluate the performance of pulsed light sterilization on their innovative closures: sport closures, spoon closures for infant milk, etc. Together we have developed a solution to decontaminate the dead volume in sport closures.
Silgan Closures is one of the world’s leading suppliers of closures and closure solutions. We have been working with since 2011. Flat closures with or without liner, 5 gallon closures … have been subjected to performance evaluation for decontamination by pulsed light. Pulsed light offers the advantage of being able to sterilize caps with liner without risk of chemical residue underneath.
These centers and laboratories are equipped with Claranor pulsed light pilot equipment. They are likely to carry out studies and projects on various matrices.
INRAE National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environnement is a French public research organisation with a scientific and technological focus. Our microbiological laboratory is located in the INRAE center in Avignon. Our tests are carried out there, before being validated by an external laboratory to ensure impartiality.
The Fraunhofer is the largest application-oriented research organisation in Europe. For our microbiological tests validation we work together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Process and Packaging Engineering IVV. The Institute also has a static decontamination laboratory machine Claranor.
Praxens is an expert technical center in decontamination, microbiology and formulation for the beverage, food and cosmetic industries.
The CTCPA (Technical Center for the Conservation of Agricultural Products) is a French industrial technical center that assists agri-food players in their projects for profitable innovation, workshop performance and food safety.
Zalkin is a major player in the global bottle and container capping industry. During the last Gulfood Manufacturing, a partnership was set up dedicated to manufacturers of high-speed bottling lines.
