For manufacturing, special emphasis is placed on best raw materials, modern processing and comprehensive monitoring. Ehrmann has state of the art production facilities with current proactive maintenance and periodical renovation.
The awarded MONSTER BACKE fruit curd and all favored ALMIGHURT jogurt sorts have been available as a stand-up pouch with center spout for a long time. SN Maschinenbau GmbH was especially proud in providing Ehrmann as the first german dairy with a pouch filler in SN ULTRA CLEAN execution. That execution is FDA, USDA and 3A dairy certified and satisfy to all international requirements for filling of fresh and liquid dairy products. Meanwhile Ehrmann Group is using three SN ULTRA-CLEAN machines.
In 2017 the most powerful LMS 124 SN machine was installed at the facility in Oberschonegg (Germany). It is a quattro machine with the total capacity of 13.200 pouches per hour.
Besides precise filling and high speed the sterility and storage life are the major challenges when filling fresh, liquid dairy products into pouches. This is where SN`s concept is convincing.

The automatic hydrogen-peroxide sterilization is integrated in the pouch making process and ensures sterility of the film and spouts. In combination with the state-of-the-art clean-room technology and a dosing system which was developed for aseptic filling, the entire filling process remains clean all time. High value was set at a design to achieve simple cleaning and maintenance: All machine parts, including the filling area, can be cleaned and sterilized without dismantling.
