The filling of sensitive beverages for distribution through the cold chain, demands high levels of hygiene and safety. The new range of volumetric electronic fillers from GEA meets those clean environment requirements.

The key feature of the GEA Procomac ESL fillers is hygienic, clean filling within a controlled environment, combined with the best performance in terms of filling speed, accuracy and flexibility. The fillers are enclosed in a Clean Box where an ultraclean environment is maintained during production with an overpressure of sterile air. The high accuracy and performance of the machine is achieved through the use of magnetic flow meters.

For this reason ESL fillers are manufactured following a ’scrap-free’ design’ that minimizes product scraps during start up, when changing product or at the end of production.

The complete bottle NeckFlex handling system enables very quick changeover for any container, PET or HDPE, with the same neck design. CIP and sterilization with steam/free fluent steam are controlled automatically for high reliability and accurate control of the entire system.

ESL fillers can be supplied as stand-alone units for PET or HDPE bottles, or coupled to a blowing machine for the blow filling of PET bottles.
