Pouches and cups – a total package from filling, sterilising to packing

ESKO Australia knows that flexible packaging is becoming more popular. The single serve, on-the-go and recyclable approach is our world today!

ESKO provides The Waldner Dosomat filler uses precision filling techniques developed in Germany for tub and pouch filing of liquids and solids.  Whether it’s dairy, baby food, fruit or PETfood Waldner is able to de-nest, fill, seal, bar code every tub OR pouch automatically in one machine. Servo drives developed in Germany provide high speed movements with no spillage.  Check Weigher data feedback to the Dosomat ensures no underweight filling issues are occurred, this ensures minimum giveaway and more product on a pallet per batch!  The inbuilt statistics software provides OEE data to ensure not only the Filler but downstream equipment is performing during a shift.

Once filled we hand the cups/pouches over to our batch retorting system Steriflow, which achieves an efficient thermal process by using cascading water to shower the cups OR pouch and transfers heat from superheated water into the product. As this is done under pressure, the water remains liquid with minimal evaporation.   The result is a product pasteurisation or shelf-stable application.  Through real time logging the Steriflow Retort can record every step of the process and control temperatures, pressures and cooling resulting in a product that is cooked safely and quickly whilst maintaining quality and flavours.  Energy savings are available through water/condensate recuperation.

Food Safety is paramount in today’s food manufacturing world, that’s why the Steriflow Retort’s provide an inbuilt QA system that monitors every aspect of the process, and generates FDA/AQIS approved reports.
