Filling Lines – ESL

GEA offers a range of technologies for container treatment that guarantee an effective and reliable ESL beverage production for cold chain distribution and enable the bottling of beverages with different pH levels (from high acid to low acid) on the same system.

GEA offers a range of technologies for container decontamination – which is an essential part of the Extended Shelf Life (ESL) bottling process – based on a vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) treatment for PET preforms (GEA Decontamination Blow Fill System ESL), PET/HDPE bottles (GEA Whitebloc Filling System ESL and GEA Whitebloc Filling System Aero) and closures (Sterilcap VHP and Sterilfoil VHP L) that doesn’t require water usage during production.

Filling and capping are performed in an ultraclean environment that is maintained during production with an overpressure of sterile air. Designed according to a ’scrap-free’ design that minimizes product wastage during start up, product changeover or shutdown, the GEA ESL fillers are available with magnetic flow meter or load weight cell installed on each filling head to achieve high performance in terms of accuracy and speed.
