DOSOMAT 20.8 AS for yoghurt with cup and lid sterilization

Capacity: 34.000 cups/hour

Machine with carton erector and case packer. Depending on the packaging scheme, the integrated case packer picks the cups out of the cell chain and places them in the ready carton case.


Fields of applicatio: dairy products
For the DOSOMAT 20AS machine the cups and lids are sterilized with the most advanced technology. The subsequent stations are covered, hermetically sealed and flushed with sterile air to avoid any recontamination of the packaging.

Cup sterilisation
The sterilising agent hydrogen peroxide H202 is sprayed through specially manufactured nozzles. The atomised cleaning agent is mixed with a flow of hot sterile air and blown into the cups via delivery nozzles. This process ensures good spraying of the cups without forming drops, while an optimal reactive temperature is reached. The cups are dried with hot sterile air on the following machine stations. The air loaded with H202 is discharged externally and safely away from the building. All cleaning media are completely prepared in a separate module. Exact control and dosing of all components guarantee optimal degermination rates, while the machine surroundings will be largely free of contamination through the sterilising agents. 

Lid sterilisation
The aluminium film lids are taken from the lid magazine, sterilised with H2O2 and hot sterile air or with high dosis of UVC radiation and placed on the filled cups. For this sterilisation non-ozonic projectors are used. A sophisticated aeration system using sterile air allows the use of even plastic film lids on the machine. Optionally, infrared or H202 systems are available for sterilisation. The subsequent stations of DOSOMAT 20 Inline are covered, hermetically sealed and flushed with sterile air so as to avoid any recontamination of the lids.

CIP cleaning / SIP sterilisation
This version includes a closed hopper with spray ball and electric level control. The entire dosing unit can be cleaned in place without dismantling. To initiate the cleanining procedure, the circuit is closed by means of an automatic locking cleaning adapter. All components and seals meet the requirements for food products and can be adjusted to the specific requirements at the customer's location (3A, EHEDG). The WALDNER standard which applies to all CIP/SIP relevant parts avoids dead legs and other points of contamination. The sterilisation procedure of the dosing unit is controlled through safety checks (time and temperature). This means that the dosing unit is only returned to production, when cleaning and sterilisation is successfully achieved.
