Today’s food and beverage producers operate in an environment of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity – VUCA. This is the case more than ever with today’s global challenges.

To deal with these challenges they need to increase operational efficiency, ensure high output quality and improve cost effectiveness. They also need greater flexibility, so that they can adapt more easily to consumer demands and seize new business opportunities.

Solution: Upgrade Kits by Tetra Pak® help food & beverage producers meet the demands of a fast-changing world

Upgrade Kits by Tetra Pak® are the way we bring the latest innovation and functionality to your equipment, based on our industry-leading expertise. They help you optimise performance and minimise downtime while streamlining operational handling for your staff. They protect your investment, because as the world changes, your equipment changes with it.

These are some of the benefits you can expect with Upgrade Kits by Tetra Pak®:

  • Greater operational efficiency: The ACHx30 Slope Chain Top™ prevents smaller and lighter packages from falling or getting stuck inside the accumulator, and can improve MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) by over 75%.
  • Reduced water use: Water Filtering Station (WFS)™ reduces water consumption by up to 95%, enhancing cost competitiveness, regulatory compliance and your brand’s profile.
  • Reduced cost of materials: EcoDot™ reduces hotmelt consumption by up to 30%.
  • Reduced waste: Vision Unit™ ensures packages are correctly aligned in the cardboard packer, thereby avoiding crashes. In this way the upgrade reduces waste, downtime and cleaning.
  • Extended equipment lifetime: GE 90-30™ helps avoid obsolescence in your equipment, due to large industry-level changes. Thanks to this upgrade kit you are able to replace components that are no longer manufactured.
  • Enhanced quality: Vision Unit™, Dust Remover™, Glue Regulator™ and Additional External Cleaning™ all secure consistent high-quality production without the need for operator intervention, by automating key production aspects.
  • New products: Our Stellite-based Jaw System Cutting Knife™ allows you to adapt your equipment for more aggressive products, such as high-acid juices. In these conditions it lasts four times longer than the standard knife, and it also offers a better quality of cut and more consistent performance.
  • New product formats: Our Underfilling™ upgrade reduces product consumption without changing the package, achieving increased margins.

Results: Upgrade Kits by Tetra Pak® in action

Reducing water consumption

A company in California faced stringent new water regulations. It needed to avoid being classified as a significant water user, to avoid more inspections, additional costs, and a big hit to profitability. By installing the Water Filtering Station (WFS)™, it was able to reduce its water consumption to just 25% of what it had been. The company saved 17.5 million litres of water per year and quickly repaid the investment.

Increasing overall line performance

The ACHx30 Slope Chain Top™ improves the performance of older Accumulator Helix 30™ equipment using technology from our latest developments. When moving through the accumulator, smaller and lighter packages can fall or get stuck, creating problems for overall line efficiency. By introducing our latest innovation to existing equipment, this upgrade increases MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) by up to 75% – and with it, overall line performance.

Reducing waste and downtime while improving product quality

The Vision Unit™ is designed to enhance performance of the Cardboard Packer 32™. It detects if the cardboard tray is correctly aligned before moving packages into the tray, thereby avoiding package crashes. It also examines the tray from above to detect if a package has fallen, is twisted, misaligned or even missing.

In this way downtime due to tray misalignment is reduced, along with associated waste and cleaning. Quality is significantly improved, and the upgrade helps prevent the costs of repacking or replacing product for retailers – as well as the equipment wear and tear that is avoided by reducing crashes, splashes and cleaning.
