Milk filling is our inspiration.
For bottling of fresh milk in PET or Glass bottles in ULTRA CLEAN environment INDEX-6® offers the models of AssetClean™ solutions, suitable for liquid dairy products, yoghurts, juices and other microbiologically sensitive products.
The AssetClean™ 49 series - a synchrobloc in ULTRA CLEAN edition, equipped with all the necessary and specialized systems for filling of microbiologically sensitive products in sterile environment. A system, guaranteeing the conservation of the product for a long time - up to 120 days. AssetClean™ 49 provides for clean technology - a sterile environment ISO 5 is maintained in the filling and capping zone. The machine is equipped with a system for real-time control of the processes being performed.
AssetClean™49 is flexible. Setting-up for work with different products and containers requires minimal time and is carried out using the specially designed functions that allow you to save the values of different parameters into predefined sets for a given product/container.
Different configurations have been designed for the synchrobloc AssetClean™ 49, covering the capacity range of 60 bpm up to 400 bpm for containers/bottles with capacity from 80 ml up to 5 liters.
- bottles and caps sterilization with ozonated water or hot solution of hydrogen peroxide Н2О2 followed by a thorough rinsing with sterile water. The different configurations of the synchrobloc allow for treatment time of the sterilizing fluid in the bottles and in the caps starting from the minimal 5.5 seconds and reaching a total 40-second sterilization. For this purpose two sterilizing columns for the bottles in combination with a linear rinser for the caps are used.
IND-PPS - Purity Protection System
- Automatic washing and sterilization of the product tank and the filling valves.- Automatic washing and sterilization of the external parts in the machine chamber by dedicated nozzles and spherical spray balls.
- Overpressure supply of a laminar flow of sterile air in the clean zone for filling and capping in order to prevent contamination arising from the surrounding environment.
- Centralized system for lead-off of the washing fluids and their return to the CIP system.
- Highly inclined surfaces "Sloping Base", welded to the main frame and plate, that serve as the bottom of the machine working zone and provide for quick and complete lead-off of any fluids and faster drying of the machine surfaces.
- Freestanding safety fencing with safety glass full-area windows, allowing for easy access to the machine from all sides and perfect cleaning of the floor under the carrying construction.
- IND-CIP3 S3 - a dedicated CIP system for preparation of washing and disinfecting solutions.
- IND-HOSW - Device for preparation of hot hydrogen peroxide Н2О2 solution and sterile water, used for bottles and caps treatment.
- IND-HFAS - Device for preparation and supply of sterile air, utilizing enzyme HEPA filters.
Shelf Life and Purity
For microbiologically sensitive food products shelf life can be a serious barrier to successful market penetration and development. Ultra Clean filling is a filling process that guarantees maximal reduction of contact of the product with harmful bacteria during filling and consequent transportation and storing by providing containers and caps sterilization and a highly hygienic filling environment. This way extended shelf life (ESL) can be achieved which guarantees that sensitive products like dairy products and fruit juices keep their quality during filling, remain safe from dangerous bacteria, can travel longer distances for distribution and can be stored for longer times, remaining fresh and with unchanged quality.
Precise Weight Filling
Every gram of the product is valuable both for the consumer and the manufacturer. The weight filling machines from the AssetClean™ series utilize load cells of the highest class. In addition the machine frame and base is designed in a manner that makes disturbances passed to the load cells negligible. For the precise control of the weight filling process we use complex software - the result of multiple modernizations over the years. All this, combined with the special patented filling valve guarantees absolute precision of filling, providing accuracy of 0.3 to 1.2 grams, depending on the product type and container volume.
- New process control algorithm achieving considerable increase in filling speed;
- Improved dosing accuracy amounting 0.3 to 1 gram in the filling range of 0.2 to 3.0 liters;
- Machine design free of dead zones that hold impurities and adapted to automatic cleaning;
- Rigid stainless frame;
- Inclined surfaces for rapid lead-off and drying;
- Freestanding fencing in safety glass, allowing 360° view to the machine, easy access for cleaning and maintenance for the machine and the floor under it.
- Modular design – convenient for easy transportation and assembly;
- Significant increase in the volume of sterile air supplied.
- The color touchscreen makes the dialogue between operator and machine easy and intuitive. There is a possibility for monitoring the current status of the machine and its work parameters for longer periods of time.
