Inteplast Engineered Films (IEF) has invested heavily in expanding its InteGreen™ family of sustainable films. Updates include new mailer bag films made with up to 80% recycled content and low- and ultra-low seal initiation temperature (SIT) films. Mailer bags have increased the conveniences of shipping and deliver for both merchants and consumers by offering weather-resistant packaging for everything from jewelry to books. The SIT films are significant sustainable alternatives for companies who integrate recyclable materials in their stand-up pouches. For example, pouches containing microwavable rice, pet treats, or granola can be made more efficiently without sacrificing the quality of the special film that keep its contents fresh. It’s a win for manufacturers and end users.
Tetra Pak today announces that its new tubular heat exchanger with P2P (Product to Product) technology now has 3-A certification.
P2P heat exchangers are typically used by dairy, beverage and ice cream producers, and can also process products with particles. They offer up to 50% improved energy efficiency compared to Product to Water (P2W) alternatives through lower steam and cooling water consumption. Designed to achieve optimum hygiene, Tetra Pak’s machine is constructed with an innovative oxygen-free welding technique that eliminates crevices and potential hygiene blind spots, to achieve zero risk of bacteria aggregation.
Jimmy Moons, Tetra Pak Product Manager said, “Tetra Pak has been working with P2P technology since 1996 and we have a proven record of delivering more than 1,000 tubular heat exchanger installations with no hygiene issues. Our new machine is a continuation of this legacy and we look forward to sharing the benefits with our customers.”
