Food and Beverage
The food and beverage industry includes a vast array of products. Beverages can range from thin, free-flowing liquids to thicker liquids. Food products, like sauces and salad dressings, can include particulates that tend to settle prior to container filling. In addition, the food and beverage industry normally requires sanitary packaging machinery. These issues, as well as the ideal packaging machinery for packaging food and beverage, are dealt with on an individual, application specific basis.
A typical automated food and beverage packaging line is shown below:
This line includes:
- An overflow filler for thin products;
- A spindle capping machine for continuous container capping;
- A container loading and product accumulating turntable;
- A power conveyor system to move containers through the filling and capping process.
This typical system will not be ideal for every product in the food and beverage industry. Liquid Packaging Solutions manufactures a variety of filling machinery and capping equipment for the food and beverage industry, including gravity filling machines and pump and piston fillers for thicker products. Tabletop and manual packaging systems are available for facilites with low to medium production needs.
In addition, container cleaning equipment such as wet rinsers and bottle vacuums are available to meet cleanliness requirements often enforced in the food and beverage industry. Packaging equipment such as an unscrambling machine, an automatic labeler, an induction sealer and/or a pallet wrapper can also be added to the packaging line based on the specific needs of your company.
The food and beverage industry can present unique challenges to packaging product. The solutions are as varied as the products themselves. Liquid Packaging Solutions has manufactured a packaging line for unique jams that included plums, apricots, strawberries and other fruits. The jam required product agitation to stop fruit from settling and a hot fill to allow the product to flow. Liquid Packaging Solutions has also manufactured packaging lines for barbeque sauces, energy drinks, salad dressings and much more, with each packaging line application requiring a unique solution.
