The benefits of low-output production

Why some producers choose to take it slow

Sidel LSDH machine 600Consumers are always on the lookout for new beverages and manufacturers are meeting their needs with new beverage flavours, textures and functionality. Very often, these new sensitive beverages are produced in smaller volumes, which requires aseptic low-output production.

In February 2013, Sidel released its new low-output integrated aseptic blow-fill-cap solution: the Combi Predis™/Capdis™ FMa. This low-output version is based on the worldwide success of the unique dry preform and cap decontamination system used by the Combi Predis/Capdis

Based on proven technology

  • 100% decontamination using no water and very little chemicals
  • Simple to operate
  • For low and high acidity products
  • Supports bottle and cap design flexibility
  • Up to 120 hours non-stop production

 

Reinforced hygienic design to ensure food safety

Dry preform contamination technology helps to protect liquid packaging from microorganisms, preserve the integrity of sensitive drinks and lengthen their shelf life, while keeping the taste natural and pure. It's the perfect solution for handling products for ambient distribution (room temperature) and it can even extend products' shelf life when distributed in the cold chain (refrigerated distribution).

Save time and money

Unlike traditional aseptic filling systems that consume large amounts of water and chemicals, the low-output Combi Predis/Capdis solution also helps to preserve the environment by using no water and very few chemicals. Other savings from the low-output Combi Predis/Capdis solution include:

  • Reduced electrical consumption by up to 45% with the Ecoven
  • Reduced annual operating costs by 30% compared with traditional dry bottle decontamination
  • Reduced PET costs through lightweighting 

The solution has been proven to deliver quick and easy format and liquid changeovers with only a three-hour cleaning and sterilisation time required between two bottle-to-bottle productions.

Compact and linear footprint

Its ultra-compact footprint facilitates implementation in new or existing plants. Despite its compact design, the platform remains ergonomic and straightforward with good accessibility to the machine's key components for ease of use and maintenance.

Popular in the dairy industry

Low-output aseptic PET is popular with dairy manufacturers who see PET solutions as a way to create differentiation through packaging while being able to handle different formats. With this new low-output solution, they can reap the benefits of production in PET bottles with Sidel's proven aseptic dry preform and cap decontamination technology. In fact, the first low-output aseptic Combi Predis FMa has been running successfully in the plant of French beverage producer Laiterie Saint-Denis de l'Hôtel (LSDH) since October 2012.
