Sidel Aseptic solution for juices, teas, sport drinks and liquid dairy products

Taking care of what’s most important in your production

Perfectly defined liquid recipes and processing methods, combined with the right PET bottle and aseptic packaging solution, can ensure maximum product integrity along the supply chain for juices, nectars, soft drinks, isotonics and teas (JNSDIT) as well as liquid dairy products (LDP), while optimising uptime and costs.

 

We have worked with both the dairy and JNSDIT industries for over 50 and 60 years, respectively. 40 years of aseptic packaging expertise has led to our development of proven solutions, including innovative dry preform decontamination and traditional wet bottle decontamination.

The science of the beverage and the package

Protect your beverage integrity with the right PET packaging solution

Packaging an aseptic beverage means considering every variable that can influence its viability, and designing a package that will preserve your beverage's original profile. With help from Sidel's scientific experts in beverage, packaging and industrial design early in the process, your production bottle can safeguard beverage integrity.

 

Benefits

  • Valuable beverage insight: Physical, chemical and sensory analyses to qualify beverage behaviour in a given PET packaging, leading to appropriate filling solution
  • Package quality assessment: Qualification of decontamination and sealing performance, chemical residue, and on-site microbial analysis to ensure total hygienic compliance
  • Real-world evaluation: Reduced-scale production of your beverage under simulated conditions in preparation for full-scale production

Once the ideal packaging solution is determined, our packaging technology makes it a reality.

Fully integrated processing solutions

Optimise performance without compromising product integrity

Our fully integrated solutions employ the processing equipment and capabilities of Tetra Pak Processing Systems (TPPS) - the inventor of aseptic technology. Based on years of technological innovation that prioritises hygienic compliance and food safety while still taking into account your need for maximum uptime, our systems optimise aseptic production with efficient solutions designed to protect your beverage from preparation to filling.

 

Benefits

  • Maximum uptime: Continuous aseptic production runs, without cleaning stoppages
  • Effective cleaning: Fast changeovers with optimised cleaning cycles
  • Efficient hygiene: Shorter sterilisation times between different production cycles

Packaging decontamination, blowing and filling are traditionally performed separately from one another, but with Sidel Aseptic Combis, the process can be optimised.

100% STERILE PET BOTTLES WITH SIDEL ASEPTIC COMBI PREDIS

Scientifically proven aseptic dry preform decontamination

The Sidel Aseptic Combi Predis decontaminates a preform instead of an entire bottle as this is an easier and safer method. Hydrogen peroxide (H202) is injected in the preforms before the oven so the heating phase activates the H202. This results in a high level of decontamination up to Log 6 with minimal residue. This decontamination system has been successfully implemented in many customer plants around the world. The unique, patented process ensures full production sterility and food safety, and the competitive solution ensures process simplicity and flexibility while lowering your total cost of ownership.

 

Safe and simple aseptic production:

  • High level of decontamination: up to Log 6
  • Aseptic blowing without need for sterilisable blow-moulder
  • 100% dry solution with deployment of same technology to caps with CapdisTM
  • No water usage means no microorganic growth 

Flexible production with maximum uptime:

  • All sensitive beverages filled, high- or low-acidity, including those with pulp
  • Many different bottle formats from 200 mL to 2 L
  • Any bottle shape, round or square, with unlimited lightweighting
  • Continuous aseptic production run of 165 hours
  • High productivity: Up to 2,400 bottles per hour per mould

Cost-efficient and sustainable production:

  • No use of water and almost no chemical use
  • Unlimited bottle lightweighting potential
  • Up to 45% reduction in electricity consumption
