Irish packaging producer Smurfit Kappa has launched a new high-speed automatic Bag-in-Box filling machine called BIB 700 Double Head.
Designed for large industrial production facilities seeking efficiency, the new BIB 700 Double Head is a part of its existing BIB 700 range and features an advanced filling valve.
With separate nitrogen and vacuum circuits, the machine is claimed to offer the best Total Package Oxygen pickup values.
This will improve the shelf life of the Bag-in-Box and brings significant value to Smurfit Kappa’s customers and to the final consumer.
The BIB 700 Double Head is capable of filling up to 30 3l Bag-in-Box products a minute at a high-flow, is fully compliant with food contact regulations, and ensures efficiency and reliability.
Commenting on the equipment, Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box Filling Machines manager Florent Neveu said: "When designing and building this machine, we wanted to make the industrial filling process as efficient and clean as possible. Therefore we focused on basic things: accurate filling to avoid wastage, easy maintenance and maximum hygiene.
"Together with improved shelf life and high-performance, these benefits mean that our customers will be able to serve their customers with Bag-in-Box in the best possible way."
In addition to the new machine, the BIB 700 range comprises the BIB 700 Evolutive and the BIB 700 SUP machines.
