Late last October, Tropical Food Machinery attended Cibus Tec, among the most innovative food technology exhibitions and a complete showcase of the best solutions – from ingredients to processing technologies, from packaging to logistics – for all segments of the food and beverage industry.
At this year’s edition, the company unveiled to the experts two units for aseptic filling. The first plant, the EA 1C D Aseptic Filler, is a system suitable for the aseptic filling of liquids, semi-liquids, high viscosity products or products in cubes as well as products with different acidity in drums up to 220 liters. The second, Aseptic Filler EA 2C SB, is ideal for the treatment of whole-grain pulp, concentrated juices, and tomato sauce; for filling pre-sterilized aseptic bags of 3, 5, 10, 20 Liters. Both are highly specialized plants that allow the construction of the product’s processing cycle, guaranteeing compliance with FDA-certified safety parameters.
