Industrial aspetic pouch system

Elopak says the Elopouch, which was launched in 1998, combines Elopak’s knowledge of packaging and systems (particularly dairy-related), with those of Bosch, which is one of the leading providers of aseptic packaging machinery.
Jorg Weltert of Elopak says the sophisticated co-extruded laminate of the Elopouch is made from polyethylene with up to seven layers. The type and number of barriers are adjusted according to the requirements of the product for targets of three, six and nine-month shelf life in ambient distribution conditions. With less than 10g of packaging material being used for one litre of UHT milk, Elopak says it offers the best product/packaging ratio in UHT-milk packaging.Weltert says the material is a new development which is in no way similar to the carton material which is conventionally used in liquid aseptic packaging. The Elopouch is reckoned to be a considerable more economic packaging system than aseptic carton packaging.
Elopouches are offered in 500ml and one litre capacities. But Weltert says that it is important to understand that the pouches are not “the final unit”. Because of the long shelf-life of the product, it’s logistic chain and national distribution, the Elopouch system offers takeaway six-packs with wrap-around packaging.
On pallets, 96% volume use, and 99% area use, are claimed.
Production facilities packaging in Elopouches have so far been installed in Western and Eastern Europe, and South Africa.
