Dairy bag-in-box filler is built to European Hygienic Engineering Design Group specs

Bag-in-box specialist Rapak -- part of D S Smith Plastics -- has supplied an Autokap semi-automatic filling machine to the Irish Arrabawn Co-op for packaging milk in what is the first use of this technology in the dairy sector.

The Autokap 620 dairy filler is said to provide easy maintenance and good hygiene during filling. The redesigned filling head is simpler with fewer moving parts. What's more, fewer seals and a modified fill valve help to make the machine more durable and more reliable, claims Rapak.

The filler has been designed and made to European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG) specifications to enable "ultra-clean filling" of a wide range of products.

A choice of filling options is available. Arrabawn is filling the bag inside the box, but plastic, stainless steel or roller packaging tables can also be specified for insertion of the bags into the boxes after filling.
