Oystar USA has introduced the Oystar Hassia SAS 20/30 aseptic pouch f/f/s machine.Offering product-specific filling systems with high filling accuracy, the SAS 20/30 f/f/s machine can produce stick packs from 60 mm to 225 mm long, 26 mm to 80 mm wide, and at volumes of up to 250 mL. It can produce as many as 24,000 stick packs/hr. The primary benefits of aseptic stick packs are extended shelf life and enhanced product quality achieved without using additional preservatives.
Designed and manufactured in accordance with international hygienic standards, the SAS 20/30 f/f/s machine can operate as many as eight lanes.After manufacturing the aseptic stick packs by sterilizing foil on all sides, the machine then fills and seals these pouches under aseptic conditions in a sterile tunnel. Through this process of active packaging material sterilization, a bacteria reduction >log5 is achieved, which results in extended shelf life, even outside the cooling chain. FDA- and 3A-compliant machine configurations are also available.
Among the SAS 20/30 f/f/s machine’s features are specially developed forming shoulders coated with either titanium nitride or chlorine nitride.Mathematically pre-calculated and CNC-fabricated, the shoulders lead to forming with an accuracy that is 100% reproducible. The SAS 20/30 forms three-sided stick packs, which use less material than four-sided packs.
