Hot Fill Aseptic

A hot fill line pasteurises the liquid, killing any harmful organisms such as bacteria, moulds, and yeasts.

Hot Fill Bottle

  • Sensitive high-acid beverages (< 4.5 pH) are pasteurised between 95-110 °C to neutralise the microbiological state
  • Liquid is then held at this temperature for several seconds before cooled to between 80 to 92 °C for filling
  • After filling and capping, containers are laid on their sides to sterilise the caps and kill unwanted organisms
  • Bottles are rapidly cooled to less than 40 °C in a cooling tunnel with water to ensure product and vitamin integrity
  • Ambient stability and extended shelf life ranges between 6 to 12 months
  • Shelf life duration is determined by oxygen barrier sensitivity, storage conditions, as well as size and type of the beverage bottle

An aseptic filling line bottles the beverage product at an ambient temperature while preserving organoleptic properties and keeping it bacteria-free.

This gives your product a specific shelf-life without tunnel pasteurisation, hot filling, or the use of preservatives or cold sterilising agents. 


  • Beverage is briefly heated before filling
  • Container, bottle or preform, is sterilised
  • Container sterilisation can be wet or dry
  • Most traditional is wet and most innovative and sustainable is dry preform sterilisation

Sidel brings you all the benefits of PET aseptic filling solutions with dry preform decontamination. This unique solution ensures product integrity and cost efficiency and maintains production flexibility and sustainability.
