Global liquid food packaging solutions supplier Ecolean will bring its EL6 and EL3+ aseptic filling machines to AUSPACK 2019.

The compact, high-capacity EL6 and EL3+ combine competitive operational costs and environmental benefits, says Christian Olsson, director of filling lines at Ecolean.

“When launching these higher capacity machines for ambient distribution, we put a lot of effort into lowering the cost per pack for our customers.

“It makes a difference, not only on offering an even more competitive total cost of ownership, but also on reducing the environmental impact further. We can now offer an easier machine to operate with higher capacity for our customers, all within the same footprint,” he said.

The EL6 is billed as Ecolean’s fastest filling machine to date, capable of filling up to 18,000 portion-sized packages per hour, while the EL3+ upgrades the capacity of the EL3, which it replaces, to 7500 family-sized packages per hour. Each comes with an integrated cleaning-in-place and pre-production sterilisation system, as well as an HEPA filtered filling zone.

“With higher capacities within the same footprint, advanced technology yet easy operations, Ecolean offers a lighter solution,” said Olsson.
