The magic inside AirTight​ separators

Tetra Pak’s design concept for separators, with its closed, AirTight​ (or hermetic) system, eliminates the limitations of open (also known as semi-open) separators. The AirTight​ system means a process that is gentler on your liquid, and one that considerably reduces energy consumption.
