*A producer and bottler of its own brands of mineral water and beverages, Italian Spumador also offers packaging solutions to major international brands for an array of non-alcoholic beverages packaged in a wide variety of PET and glass packages. *
The company is now actively pursuing its growth strategy through the addition of a new aseptic packaging line from Sidel.
“We anticipated that we would need a facility able to handle a large number of products,” said Tullio Tiozzo, Spumador Operations Director. “This new line was designed to achieve extreme flexibility and speed in format changeovers while maintaining all the high quality standards that are fundamental to aseptic lines. And we really do seem to have reached this objective.”
This new aseptic line from Sidel has already been operating at the Sant’Andrea Bagni facility, producing 24,000 bottles an hour in seven different formats, ranging from 0.1-litre up to 2-litre. The key to its flexibility is the Sensofill FMa filler.
Spumador is the first manufacturer to use this aseptic filler especially designed to accommodate a wide variety of production runs. Product and format changeovers can be performed without loss of sterility, which facilitates overall operations. The Sensofill FMa also reduces losses during product changeovers, and cuts down water and APA consumption.
This new aseptic line is used to package still and neutral pH beverages in PET bottles. Such products include sports supplements, iced teas, dairy- or soy-based beverages, 100% pure juices, fruit juice-based beverages with pulp, and beverages that are enriched with vitamins and other nutrients.
As for package flexibility, the line produces bottles with flat or sport caps in multi-layer PET and single layer PET with barrier coating, produced with reel-fed labels, wrap-around labels, transparent or customised heat shrink labels.
