Tetra Pak® E3/CompactFlex

Pasteurised Version

This version of Tetra Pak® E3/CompactFlex is for chilled products and does not require packaging material sterilisation. Hydrogen peroxide will only be required to sterilise the machine in a very small quantity.

Tetra Pak® E3/CompactFlex XH Version

This version of Tetra Pak® E3/CompactFlex is for Extended Shelf Life products and utilises one eBeam lamp to disinfect the inner part of the packaging material. Hydrogen peroxide will only be required to sterilise the machine in a very small quantity.

Mini Single Head Sealing

More homogeneous sealing quality

The transversal sealing of the packages is done by ultrasonic technology enabled by Mini Single Head Compact Transducer. It is a new component using single head instead of a twin head. This assures a more homogeneous sealing quality and enables machine capacity increase to 9'000 packs/hour.

New Operator Interface

New Operator Interface

Wide screen

The operator panel will have a new look and feel and a wider screen – in 16:9. More intuitive icons are available with added functionality and improved usability. The time required to perform the different operations has been reduced.

Two Optional Cleaning systems

Two Optional Cleaning systems

Choose from full automatic or eco friendly cleaning

The customer will have the possibility to select between two external cleaning options with a chance to customise his own cleaning cycle! The two available pre-defined options are:

  • A full automatic procedure ensuring a higher cleaning efficiency covering also the hygienic chamber.
  • A more eco friendly option with a lower water consumption

The cleaning parameters are visualised at the operator panel and will be enabled for customisation so that the customer can tailor make it to better fit specific needs.

Web Position Active Control

Web Position Active Control

Enhanced sealing quality and reduced dust

This new feature improves two important aspects of the filling machine functionality:

  • Sealing quality because the web position accuracy is improved through a dynamic correction of the position
  • Reduced dust because the device is not in contact with the edges of the packaging material

Options

QuickChange™

Available for TB 200 B and TB 250 B

QuickChange technology makes it possible to switch production between two packages with the same bottom cross section, whilst maintaining the filling machine's sterile conditions.

The kit consists of few parts that need to be changed by the filling machine operator. After this has been done, the machine automatically adjusts by applying the servo motor programme for the new volume chosen. Within 20 minutes, the machine can be ready to start production again.

eBeam kit

For already installed Tetra Pak E3/CompactFlex Pasteurised variant machines, the Optional Kit Adaptation For Extended Hygiene is available to upgrade the machine to XH (Extended Hygiene) variant and allow for production of extended shelf life products .

Breakthrough technology eBeam to the beverage carton industry for the first time

The Tetra Pak® E3 platform is a series of filling machines that use eBeam technology to sterilise packaging material replacing the traditional hydrogen peroxide sterilisation process for packaging material while guaranteeing the same sterilisation performance. The eBeam sterilisation technology works by focusing a controlled beam of electrons on the surface of a packaging material to kill micro-organisms as it runs through the filling machine. 

Benefits of eBeam technology

eBeam

Reduce operational cost

The new sterilisation technique offers numerous advantages such as higher production capacity with no increase in machine dimensions. The Tetra Pak® E3/Speed Hyper filling machine is 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.

eBeam

Improve environmental performance

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.

Production flexibility

The new platform allows for higher modularity in terms of filled product types. Thanks to eBeam technology, you can use the same machine to move from pasteurised filling to extended shelf life production.
