Efficient use of bakery fillings in Fluid-BagsBakery cakes JPG ID 10321 cropped

Typical equipment used:

  • Fluid-Bag MULTI with 3" discharge pipe
  • Semi-automatic Discharge Roller

Less waste, no cleaning

Fillings for the bakery and patisserie industries can easily be handled in Fluid-Bag containers. In this case, a Fluid-Bag MULTI container with a 3 inch discharge pipe is used, to make sure that the flow of the viscous fillings is sufficient. In combination with a Fluid-Bag semi-automatic Discharge Roller, which stretches the bag to facilitiate discharge and helps to clean out the inner liner, the amount of fillings left in the container is minimal, down to 1%

The inner container of the Fluid-Bag MULTI is single-use. Therefore no container cleaning is necessary, which means the Fluid-Bag user saves time, cleaning costs and also reduces the use of water and detergents.

A growing product group

Fruit preparations are being shipped long distances in Fluid-Bag FLEXI one-way containers. Large quantities of fruit preparations are manufactured for example in Northern Africa, and these products are being shipped in Fluid-Bags in sea containers to Europe and other parts of the world for use in the dairy and bakery industries. Return freights of empty containers can be avoided altogether. The discharge process is very efficient, meaning that the food producers receiving the fruit preparations in Fluid-Bags can make the most of every last drop.

Since fruit preparations are usually quite liquid, a Fluid-Bag Stretching Station or a Universal Stretching Device is used for discharging. As the name suggests, these devices stretch the bag during discharge, making sure that the product flows easily out of the container to the pump, which forwards the product into the manufacturing line.

Adaptors for aseptic filling and discharge are also available, contact us for more information:
