The new Tetra Pak® E3 platform is based on eBeam technology which will allow you to enjoy significant benefits in operational cost reduction, environmental performance and production flexibility.
The eBeam system sterilises packaging material using electron beams and guarantees the samesterilisation performance of hydrogen peroxide systems.
The new Tetra Pak® E3 platform will enable you to produce pasteurised and extended shelf life products on the same machine.
The Tetra Pak® E3 platform is a series of filling machines that use eBeam, a technology that has been developed by Tetra Pak in collaboration with our partner COMET. The eBeam technology sterilises packaging material using electron beams and replaces the traditional hydrogen peroxide sterilisation process for packaging material while guaranteeing the same sterilisation performance.
The first new generation machine with the eBeam system will be commercially released in 2016.

The new sterilisation technique offers numerous advantages such as higher production capacity with no increase in machine dimensions. The Tetra Pak® E3 highest speed machines will be able to reach 40,000 portion packs per hour, a more than 60% improvement compared with our existing Tetra Pak® A3 platform. In this way, you may save up to 20% in operational cost due to improved efficiency.
The use of the eBeam system instead of hydrogen peroxide means fewer chemicals need to be stored and treated, leading to reduced consumption of water and energy.
The continuous operation of eBeam reduces the packaging and product waste that happens during the set up for the hydrogen peroxide sterilisation process, allowing you to improve your environmental performance.
The new platform allows for higher modularity in terms of product types. Thanks to eBeam technology, you will be able to use the same machine for both chilled and extended shelf life products.
