Fruit preparations in Fluid-Bag

Berry smoothie

Fluid-Bag model and equipment used:

  • Fluid-Bag FLEXI with 2" aseptic discharge valve
  • Stretching Station or Universal Stretching Device

Fruit preparations are being shipped long distances in Fluid-Bag FLEXI one-way containers. Fruit preparations manufactured in for example Northern Africa 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.

Smarter logistics
Return freights can be avoided altogether. There are no costs for administration, cleaning and maintenance of empty containers.

Less food waste
The discharge process is very efficient (down to 1% residue), meaning that the food producers receiving the fruit preparations in Fluid-Bags can make the most of every last drop.

Fluid-Bag set-up for fruit preparations 

For fruit preparations a Fluid-Bag with 2-inch discharge valve is typically used. The inner container is equipped with a DN 50 size valve (DIN11851) that can be steam sterilized in accordance with current industry standards. The valve has a renewed design (launched in 2019) and is made of a Bisphenol A free material fulfilling EU and FDA requirements for food contact. The inner containers are manufactured in an ISO 22000 certified facility with HACCP process control system.

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.
