Extending Shelf Life Through Packaging Machinery
October 11, 2013
Shelf life extension is imperative in any industry, from food to medicine. When perishable products, such as foods, aren’t packaged properly, it makes way for the growth of bacteria, molds, and rancidity due to the exposure of oxygen, also known as oxidation, which changes the composition of foods over time.
This is why Pack Line’s packaging machines provide you with top-notch packaging technology that ensures your food products last as long as possible while keeping quality intact.
The temperature of the internal packaging is a necessary proponent in food quality and preservation. All of our packaging machinery is outfitted with a Programmable Logic Controller, or PLC, by the Allan Bradley company. There is a temperature control mechanism that monitors the internal temperature within the package so that you can control the temperature.
We also offer several options for modified atmosphere packaging, or MAP, that are the latest technologies in the packaging industry. Our MAP system is a form of active packaging that interacts with the internal environment of the package in a process that flushes out oxygen gases and either reduces or replaces the oxygen within to that of nitrogen or carbon dioxide.
Our packaging machines use a nitrogen gas flush system. Inert nitrogen gases are injected into the package by a vacuum pump which in turn, pushes out the oxygen inside. While Pack Line offers vacuum pumps, we understand that vacuums can harm or break delicate products. Pack Line has a special process which doesn’t require a vacuum and flushes out the gases inside the package and replaces it with nitrogen.
Additionally, we use heat sealing technologies to make sure that your packaging is sealed tight.
For packaging machinery that extends your product’s shelf life, Pack Line is your solution.
