Retort Pouch Packaging Machine
A wide variety of products that were previously canned are now able to be more economically packaged in retort pouches. These specialised plastic film and metal foil laminates are ideal for food use. Traditional premade pouch filling machines are not suitable for hygienic operations, and a dedicated retort pouch filling solution that can seal to withstand the high pressures of the autoclave is needed.
Food pouch packaging machine with sanitary design
The Bossar BR Retort series is a range of machines designed specifically for hygienic filling of premade retort pouches for food products. They are perfect for product lines such as soup, tuna, chicken, sauces, prepared meals and pasta, as well as pharmaceutical applications.
Constructed from AISI 304 stainless steel, the BR series is easy to clean and sanitize. In addition, all parts that are product contacting are made from AISI 316L stainless steel. Optional residual oxygen removal systems can be specified, either N2 or steam injection, to meet your exact requirements.
The Bossar-designed high-pressure sealing system has been designed to give a perfect seal every time, and offers temperature control of +/- 1 degree to guarantee a hermetic seal on a wide range of pouch types.
A robust walking beam transport method ensures reliability and accuracy while allowing throughput of up to 180 pouches per minute. The BR series can seal flat or stand-up pouches ranging from 60mm x 80mm up to 330mm x 300mm. Maximum fill volume can be up to 2,000cc.
