The Sensofill™ FMa ultra-flexible aseptic filler is for manufacturers that produce a wide variety of beverages and bottles and require extreme flexibility. Product and format changeovers are performed from outside of the sterile zone with no loss of sterility. In addition, production can continue for 72 to 120 hr without resterilization because the environment remains under absolute control. The newly designed, hermetically sealed isolator and sterile air overpressure are reinforced by directed airflow in the filling zone. Using the rinser configuration, the internal and external bottle decontamination process uses a high-pressure jet of peracetic acid. Sterile water pulse-rinsing results in low chemical residue and less water consumption, the co. reports.
