In Europe and the US the market for fruit purée/ smoothies is growing rapidly. Pouch packaging is getting more and more important for a creative and successful presentation of the products.
SN Pouch packing technology
With an output capacity of 120, 240 and 500 pouches per minute SN presents further three new machine generations for hot-filling of fruit purée and other liquids. Hot-filling makes the costly pasteurizing downstream redundant.
A camera system can be integrated to monitor the exact positioning of centerspouts with a precision of 0,1 mm. This system makes further inspections down the line unnecessary. The two machine types with output capacities of 120 and 240 pouches per minute are available in both right-hand and left-hand execution. This reduces the costs for personnel by 50%.
Naturally all SN machines can be linked to known data management systems and the recipes and production parameters are saved in the program which allows for a very quick product change-over.

Juice-type beverages in pouches – up to today this segment has been dominated by a small number of companies. With the LIQUID POUCH Technology SN now offers highly efficient FFS-machines for hot-filling liquid products into pouches at 95°C, opening up the market for everyone.
The innovation behind the SN LIQUID POUCH is that, contrary to past concepts, form, size and filling capacity of the pouch can be chosen freely. Every possible addition, such as a straw-applicator, re-sealable cornerspout or centerspout, or simple pouring aids can be realized. There is no end to marketing creativity.
SN Liquid pouch technology
Traditional technology fills and seals pre-made pouches. The SN LIQUID POUCH is produced directly from a film roll. It is formed, filled and sealed with utmost precision and velocity. The LIQUID POUCH machines are designed for 60, 120, 240 and 500 pouches per minute and can handle cost-reduced composite films. Material consumption is significantly reduced in comparison to former methods. Thus the SN LIQUID POUCH technology offers critical ecological and economic advantages.
The upper sealing edge is sealed absolutely precisely along the entire width by a special ultrasound-hygiene-sealing procedure. This eliminates germs or dirt to accumulate at the upper sealing edge and guarantees highest hygiene standards.

With the FBM 20 machine (100-120 stand-up pouches per minute) SN also offers a highly efficient and innovative machine concept to pack fresh sauces into pouches.
In order to optimize sterility and shelf-life of the filling good, the film can be sterilized by UV-radiation during the pouch making process. The filling good is supplied via CIP-compatible pumps which can completely be cleaned without dismantling.
SN FBM20 pouch packing machine
Conductive filling good is dosed precisely by means of electromagnetic flowmeter. The advantages: the servo-driven filling valves guarantee exact and reproducible behavior of the filling good (spilling and splashing).
Like with all other SN machines a recipe control is integrated and all filling parameters are reproducible at the push of a button. This guarantees an easy and quick change of product. Further advantages of the FBM 20 machine are its flexibility concerning pouch formats and the small footprint.
