Bottle decontamination : Serac expands its offer

Serac : 16 June, 2006  (New Product)
Depending on the type of container filled and the specific requirements of each
application, Serac will propose the decontamination system best adapted to the
user's needs and expectations. Over a period of 35 years, Serac has established itself as the leader in aseptic filling and major milk and drinks filling companies worldwide place their trust in us. Serac has submitted around 80 patents in the filling sector which clearly illustrates its commitment to innovate and develop cutting-edge technology.
A unique proposal :
The range of 'liquid' or 'dry' decontamination solutions presently proposed by
Serac for rotary machines is well beyond that of its competitors.

Depending on the type of container filled and the specific requirements of each
application, Serac will propose the decontamination system best adapted to the
user's needs and expectations. Over a period of 35 years, Serac has established itself as the leader in aseptic filling and major milk and drinks filling companies worldwide place their trust in us. Serac has submitted around 80 patents in the filling sector which clearly illustrates its commitment to innovate and develop cutting-edge technology.

In order to meet new market requirements, Serac has now added a new bottle
decontamination system to its already extensive line.

Bottle decontamination is a key requirement in the aseptic filling sector.
Indeed, except in the case of production using so-called 'closed neck' bottles, all
'opened neck' bottles require internal decontamination. The solutions proposed by
Serac until now involved application of a per-acid based decontamination liquid.

Two possibilities are available for the filling of milk and drinks.
Either the so-called 'Top Fill' method, which consists of filling the bottle completely
with a sterilizing solution, waiting for it to work for a given time and then rinsing it
with sterile water. Or the so-called 'Injection' method, which consists of turning the
bottle upside down, inserting a jet and spraying sterilizing solution, then rinsing with
sterile water.

Serac adds a new string to its bow : 'The H202 controlled decontamination'
Dry decontamination is now possible on the Serac aseptic filling line specifically
designed for milk in polyethylene bottles.

This type of treatment is more economical and enables not only the use of less
disinfectant, but also eliminates the need to rinse the bottles with sterile water. The
effect on production costs is therefore not negligible.

The controlled decontamination concept:
However, the truly innovative aspect is the H2O2 distribution method:
A sensor (patented), placed upstream of the treatment carrousel, enables
continuous monitoring of the H2O2 concentration of the gas injected into the
bottles.

In the case of a dysfunction, an alarm stops the process. In this way any risk of
using insufficiently decontaminated bottles is eliminated.
