The Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper filling machine for aseptic cartons features the eBeam system—it sterilises packaging material using electron beams and replaces the traditional hydrogen peroxide sterilisation process for packaging material while guaranteeing the same sterilisation performance. The technology enables fewer chemicals to be stored and treated, leading to reduced consumption of water and energy.
The machine is able to reach 40,000 portion packs per hour, which presents more than a 60 percent improvement compared with the company’s existing A3 machines. The machines allows for higher modularity in terms of filled product types and the same machine can be used to move from pasteurised filling to extended shelf life production.
