The Combi Predis™ FMa, a dry preform decontamination system, initially used for beverages distributed in the cold chain, can now also be used for products sold at ambient temperatures. In response to consumer preferences and increasingly strict food regulations, aseptic filling creates the opportunity for sensitive beverages packaged with preservatives to reformulate naturally. The filler blows bottles and fills them with sensitive products in aseptic conditions. The key feature is its “dry preform technology.” Bottle rinsing is replaced with dry preform sterilization at the oven entrance, using hydrogen peroxide vapor.
