La descontaminación seca de preformas Sidel Matrix Predis

Una producción de bebidas aséptica, confiable y flexible

Predis™ es una solución exclusiva y probada de descontaminación seca de preformas basada en una larga experiencia con productos sensibles, unos conocimientos extraordinarios en materia de fabricación aséptica y una innovadora tecnología de PET que no tiene parangón en la industria del envasado de líquidos.

 

La preforma se descontamina con peróxido de hidrógeno (H2O2) antes de ser calentada en el horno, que activa ese H2O2 desde la etapa de calentamiento de la preforma existente y logra un elevado nivel de descontaminación. Este procedimiento reduce el riesgo de que quede residuo de peróxido en la preforma. La misma tecnología de descontaminación seca se aplica en las tapas a través de Capdis™.

 

Predis se suministra principalmente en una configuración Combi que incluye la descontaminación de preformas, el soplado, el llenado y el tapado. Muchas empresas importantes de bebidas y lácteos utilizan esta tecnología. Además, la Sidel Combi Predis FMa es el estándar en la industria de las bebidas a la hora de fabricar asépticamente envases de PET destinados a los tés, jugos, néctares, bebidas isotónicas y productos lácteos líquidos (como la leche UHT o la leche de soja).

 

Ahora, Predis está disponible en una configuración compatible con la generación más reciente de equipos Sidel Matrix. Con todas las innovaciones de la generación de sopladoras Sidel Matrix, además de las constantes mejoras técnicas que se realizaron a nuestra solución de descontaminación seca de preformas en los últimos años, la nueva Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa brinda a la industria de las bebidas:

 

  • la solución aséptica con descontaminación seca de preformas más veloz del mercado;
  • el mejor costo total de propiedad (TCO, por sus siglas en inglés), sin comprometer la sencillez o la seguridad alimentaria;
  • un elevado nivel de flexibilidad de proceso, además de fiabilidad y ventajas medioambientales y económicas.

  • Flexibility for beverage producers  

    Matrix Predis 2The Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa offers total flexibility with maximum uptime. Many beverage recipes can be produced in PET bottles, in various bottle shapes and sizes, without compromising on production rates or lightweighting possibilities.

     

     

    Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa is:

    • suitable for a wide variety of sensitive beverages of high and low acidity in PET like teas, juices, nectars and isotonics, as well as liquid dairy products such as UHT milk or soy milk
    • suitable for beverages distributed at ambient temperature (aseptic production configuration) or in cold chain (ultra clean production configuration)
    • available for a wide range of bottle formats, ranging from 0.2 to 2 litres
    • producing up to 60,000 bottles per hour, a 20% output increase compared to the previous Sidel blower generation with Predis
    • available for low to medium output up to 16,000 bottle per hour; the low-speed Combi Predis FMa is extremely versatile and very easy to install in order to achieve a quick ramp up, therefore a timely commercial production.

     

    Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa also offers beverage producers:

    • total bottle design freedom because the empty bottle is blown from a decontaminated preform and does not undergo any thermal stress
    • simple, fast and safe changeovers with electrical stretching
    • reduced downtime for liquid changeovers: a simple three-hour cleaning and sterilisation period between two bottle-to-bottle productions
    • possibility to apply a large range of flat and sports caps

  • Saving money and resources  

    Compared to traditional aseptic filling systems, the new Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa offers cost-efficiency and an optimal environmental footprint:

    • Matrix Predis 1No water and almost no use of chemicals to sterilise the preform compared to traditional aseptic filling solutions
    • Because of the absence of thermal stress on the bottles and continuous by-the-neck transfer, there is no limit in terms of bottle lightweighting
    • Optimised production requires only one operator, reducing operating costs by up to 30% compared with standalone equipment
    • Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa has improved productivity with an higher overall output based on the same number of blow moulding stations compared to the previous generation of Sidel aseptic Combi (output up to 2,300 bottles per mould per hour)
    • Reduced electrical consumption by up to 45%: Sidel Matrix Ecoven requires fewer heating modules and lamps and reduces preform-heating time

  • High levels of safety and simplicity  

    The Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa is designed to ensure food safety, product integrity and a longer shelf life for sensitive products without using preservatives. It is also simple to operate and maintain.

    • Aluminium foil is no longer required due to the tightness closure (rigidity of the PET bottleneck combined with caps specifically designed for aseptic packaging) completed with the Combi Predis FMa Capdis: protecting against micro-organisms for excellent food safety
    • Production and maintenance operations are improved as the simplified design has fewer transfer wheels making it more compact and more accessible
    • Efficient external preform decontamination with increased output as the oven is equipped with new, more powerful UV lamps
    • Improved air management in the oven
    • No sterile blower is required as the dry H2O2 preform decontamination is located before the oven and avoids any recontamination
    • Improved production environment safety as only relevant parts retained in blowing area
    • Fewer manual interventions required with automatic decontamination of the surfaces of transfer wheel

  • 165 hours of continuous aseptic production  

    Matruix Predis smallThe Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa offers the longest aseptic bottling uptime available on the beverage market.

     

     

     

     

    • A completely aseptic filling environment with a continuous production run of 165 hours between two cleaning and sterilising cycles
    • Quick and easy format and liquid changeover: a simple three-hour cleaning and sterilisation period is required between bottle-to-bottle productions
    • Equipment can benefit from a longer lifespan with less maintenance, as components are subjected to less stress through fewer cleaning and sterilisation cycles

  • Low output Combi Predis FMa Blow-fill-cap system  

    The low output Combi Predis FMa Capdis leverages Sidel unrivalled aseptic dry-preform and cap technology for those who need flexible aseptic PET packaging production at lower speed for small batches prior to a wide-scale roll-out, small volumes for regional markets or niche markets or for dairy applications.

    • A perfectly adapted packaging solution in terms of speed for a competitive advantage, benefitting from the latest continual developments in hygienic design, improved flexibility and ergonomics, with no compromise on quality or reliability.
    • A standard output of 12,000 bottles per hour for a 1L bottle, it can run up to 16,000 bottles per hour for smaller bottle formats
    • A bottling solution suitable to fill any kind of still or pulpy beverages, both products of high and low acidity, bottled in all common volumes required by the market - between 200 ml and 2L
    • Ultra-compact footprint to facilitate its implementation in new or existing plants. The reduction up to 30% of the footprint of the integrated PET blow-fill-cap solution compared with existing linear solutions, lessens the constraints of line layout
    • Its linear design allows for parallel packaging machines, which is a typical layout in the milk industry
    • With its special plug-and-play conception, on-site installation is simpler and faster and can be managed in 'hidden time' while installing the rest of the line
    • Despite its compact design, the platform remains ergonomic and straightforward. Good accessibility to the machine's key components has been maintained, allowing operators to maintain and manage it easily
