GEA Procomac will be showing its new Aseptic Dual Filling System
for the filling of PET bottles with products containing particulates at ANUGA FoodTec 2012
, in Cologne from 27 – 30 March.
The new system is composed of two separate filling carousels: the new aseptic piston doser PX for solid particles with set volume from 30 to 150 ml and the volumetric electronic filler Fillstar FX, an industry standard for aseptic beverages filling. Filling of the bottles takes place in two operations: first the dosing of the solid particles; then the addition of the liquid phase. The dual fill system requires a two-stream process line: one dedicated to the thermal treatment of the pieces and the other to the thermal treatment of the clear liquid.
The new Aseptic Dual Filling System is designed for the bottling of still beverages, both High Acid and Low Acid, containing pulps, fibres, and pieces of fruit or cereals with dimensions up to 10x10x10 mm, or products whose density does not allow the consistent distribution of the pieces.
GEA Procomac will have a test rig of the new dosing valve on show at ANUGA FoodTec 2012
so visitors will be able to see the system in action. The company will be exhibiting on the GEA Group stand: Hall 4.1. D038-A031
. Sales and engineering staff will be on hand to answer both technical and service questions.
