Meeting food and dairy packaging requirements
Non-aseptic clean filling (C.F.) systems from Alfa Laval Astepo are in widespread use throughout the food and dairy industries. They are ideal for packaging liquids that include milk, flavored milk, milk shakes and sundaes – which have to be kept under refrigerated conditions – as well as dense, viscous products (often containing small particles) such as ketchup, mayonnaise and sauces, and shelf-stable syrups and extracts.
Versatile and automated
The C.F. filler can be configured for either automatic or semi-automatic operation, depending on your needs.
All C.F. filling systems feature easy operation and maintenance, and it’s easy to quickly swap between different bag sizes. They can operate with all the standard types of bags and spouts currently available, and can be configured with single or double filling heads.
Special Ultraclean versions are available for packaging dairy and egg products, as well as other delicate products that involve even more stringent hygiene specifications. C.F. Ultraclean bag-in-box fillers make it possible to provide longer shelf life for such products.
There is no physical interference from an operator once the first bag has been inserted and the machine has been started, thus ensuring better hygiene. The filler automatically loads, fills and re-caps the bags and is equipped with sensors to stop filling should a no-bag or no-valve condition arise.
The unique Ultraclean ”white” filling valve is EHEDG certified. It is protected during filling by an overpressure of filtered air. A nebulizer system for liquid disinfectants is an additional option.
