The hottest beverage and liquid food packaging

  • Detail

Beverage and liquid food packaging (Part 1)

drinktec (international beverage and liquid food technology Expo) is a World Expo for the beverage and liquid food industry. Every four years, Drinktec gathers all major manufacturers (suppliers), producers, wholesalers and retailers in the industry. One of the major features of Drinktec is the overall exhibition of equipment and plants. It is the only industry expo to achieve this kind of exhibition. Drink2005, held at the exhibition center in new Munich, Germany from September 12 to 17, 2005, expanded the scope of the exhibition and included liquid food in the exhibition list. At the exhibition, products such as mixed milk and yogurt, together with wine, tea drinks, functional and vitamin drinks, played an important role

over 70000 visitors from 161 countries visited the exhibition in the six days, setting a new record for the number of visitors to international beverage industry exhibitions. The exhibition attracted 40% more overseas visitors than the previous one, especially from the United States, Japan, South America and Eastern Europe. Among them, the professional trade visitors except Germany are 36% higher than that of the previous year, and all professional trade visitors can reach 96.5%

petpoint was held at the same time with Drinktec for the first time As a forum to discuss various fields of pet, the participating enterprises included bottle production and filling, peripheral equipment manufacturing, packaging and labeling, recycling and other fields. 90% of the visitors thought that petpoint was doing well

aseptic filling of beverages and milk

over the years, with the increasingly perfect performance of pet and HDPE materials, the filling technology adopted by beverage manufacturers after the completion of aseptic filling experiments has become more and more mature; Thus, higher requirements are put forward for other peripheral equipment besides filling technology, such as integration and ease of use. For many beverage manufacturing enterprises, the introduction of the new non fixed bacteria technology means a great market opportunity and, of course, a great challenge in product production. Aseptic filling

more and more beverages, such as juice, non carbonated beverages, iced tea, coffee, sports drinks, purified water, and pasteurized milk, must maintain good antibacterial properties during the filling process. In recent years, more and more PET bottles or PP and HDPE bottles are used as containers for these drinks. Some experts predict that in the next few years, the PET bottle aseptic filling market will increase at twice the current rate

aseptic filling of plastic bottles must include the sterilization process of contents, bottle body and bottle cap respectively, and at the same time, the three should be combined in a sterile environment. The disinfection of contents is usually carried out in a short time of high temperature environment. The sterilized bottle cap can be made of multi-layer materials, or it can be a screw cap with plastic. Usually, the disinfection method of disinfection pool or UV sterilization is adopted

if the enterprise chooses aseptic filling, it means that it has to invest a lot of money in the whole disinfection system, and the disinfection and flushing systems must be combined. In this series of links, how to maintain the tightness and quality assurance of containers from disinfection to aseptic packaging is the most important issue for all enterprises. In recent years, the space for container drying on the equipment has become smaller and smaller, because it is believed that the smaller the drying space, the smaller the risk of container being affected by bacteria. People have different opinions on the specific drying methods

in this year's Drinktec2005, these two different drying methods - wet drying method with over acidity and dry drying method with hydrogen peroxide, both showed their own characteristics in terms of efficiency and safety. For example, the dry drying method uses the steam flow of hydrogen peroxide. After a very short drying process, the container can be dried immediately in the disinfection hood

system integration

it can be seen that the aseptic packaging process is reflected not only in filling, but also in the whole process. This requires the whole system to be well integrated, including the selection of disinfectant or toxic gas, the pre cleaning of disinfection devices, the preparation and storage of beverage raw materials, etc. the automatic control system and detection device can make the whole processing process realize visual operation, analysis and quality management with traceable detectors

on the other hand, if the aseptic filling production line needs to be repaired, the technicians must be trained or qualified accordingly. In short, the effect of aseptic processing is related to each link of the whole process

aseptic filling of milk

drinktec2005 is the first exhibition that Drinktec has paid attention to milk products or related marginal fields since its inception. Because milk needs to be kept in aseptic packaging for a long time, aseptic filling is undoubtedly the most interesting part of the production line. Driven by the increasing expectations of consumers and food innovation, plastic containers are gradually used for milk products. It is understood that about 30% of milk products have now adopted plastic containers. As for aseptic filling of PET bottles, they are mainly used in UHT milk products, which can be stored at room temperature for up to three months

in a word, the aseptic filling technology and product quality of beverages and milk packed in cartons or plastic bottles will continue to improve with the improvement of consumer demand
