Hot filling is a method beverage makers use to reduce the chances pathogens end up in their products.
The hot-filling process involves filling containers immediately after the product has been through a thermal processing step and it may be done at temperatures between 182oF and 192oF, for example. Bottles have to be strong enough to absorb the distortion that occurs as the beverage cools to room temperature.
SOMEX developed a Hot Fill simulator for effective ‘Off Line’ analysis and performance testing of containers.
Designed from the ground up with usability and reliability as cornerstones, the Delta ETS is a robust reliable product using standard components from recognized suppliers.
Particular attention is given to temperature control and filling nozzle design to ensure exact, repeatable simulation conditions of a Hot Fill line.
