Krones has launched its rotary dry-aseptic PET-bottle filling system featuring H2O2 as a sterilising agent.
The FDA-approved system sterilises bottles, closures and seals in a completely dry and safe process using H2O2.
The isolator is also sterilised in a dry process using evaporated H2O2 – unlike traditional isolators, which use peracetic acid.
The downtime required for cleaning and sterilising the system has consequently been minimised. The machine has currently been validated for 48 hours of continuous operation. The cleaning and sterilisation process after this period takes 3.5 hours.
