For producers of fruit beverages with a solids content like pulp or fruit chunks, a new piece of kit is available from Krones for the aseptic handling of solids.

The DosaFlex aseptic container station has been developed for the dosing of aseptic components in finished beverages with a solids content. It has been made possible by the provision of components with an increased concentration of solids in aseptic containers an option that used to be offered only for aromas and concentrates.

The aseptic containers can be pressurised with an overlay of sterile air or nitrogen. This prevents recontamination or absorption of unwanted substances.

The newly developed DosaFlex aseptic container station can be used for continuous product treatment.

The finished beverage is blended using controlled dosing in a double-seat valve with an adjacent vapour seal. For low-acid products, a vapour seal can be provided in the condensate drain, so as to ensure a sterile production process.
