Used for filling Bag-in-Box® and Pouch-Up® products, the machine was produced by the BIB Equipment division of Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box.
Smurfit Kappa’s automatic web filling machines offer high productivity and efficiency thanks to a number of innovative technologies including:
• The revolutionary filling valve with separate vacuum and nitrogen circuits which decrease the oxygen pickup during filling
• The “soft drop” of the bag reducing the number of leakers
• The raised buffer tank which enables a better flow and more accurate filling
The web filling machines also meet strictest standards in terms of HACCP health and safety requirements.
For over 20 years, BIB Equipment has been producing automatic web filling lines for the liquid and semi-liquid industry in Europe, Russia, Latin America, North America and Asia Pacific.
This accomplishment is the result of Smurfit Kappa’s experience and expertise in the end-to-end process of packaging liquids. In close collaboration with R&D and Quality departments, the BIB Equipment department carries out a lengthy process to serve each project from the evaluation of the specific needs of each customer to the construction, testing, installation and after-sales service.
