Aseptic filling system

January 9, 2013

The GEA Procomac aseptic dual filling system is used for bottling high-/low-acid still beverages that have pulps, fibers and pieces of fruit or cereals; it is also suitable for products with densities that do not allow the consistent distribution of the pieces. The system features a PX aseptic piston doser for solid particles and a Fillstar FX volumetric electronic filler. Applications include fruit juices, sport drinks, still sensitive drinks, milk-based LA drinks, UHT milk, soy milk, iced tea and infusions, and nutraceutical products.
