Preferred for use in filling machines

Foods nowadays have to fulfil requirements for both efficient production and ease of handling. That is why stand-up pouches are widely used, especially in the beverage and pet food industries. Modern pouch filling machines from a well-known German manufacturer enable the fast and efficient production of foods sold in these practical packages. To ensure a smooth-running production process, stainless steel push-in fittings from Eisele are used in the wet areas of the filling machines, where they have withstood the test of time especially due to their corrosion resistance and ease of handling.

The market leader for high-speed pouch filling machines develops and implements processing facilities and pouching machines that are used primarily in the food, beverage and pet food industries. These industries have extremely stringent hygiene standards, which necessitates efficient cleaning of the systems. The components used in the systems therefore have to withstand not only harsh production environments, but also chemical cleaners and splashing water. That also applies to the pneumatic fittings used in the wet areas of the filling machines: Even if these components do not come into direct contact with the products, they are used in processes with high requirements for hygiene and are subjected to rigorous cleaning procedures.

Hygienic and corrosion resistant

Among other things, this has consequences for the material used: Nickel-plated components provide sufficient protection against corrosion as long as the nickel coating remains undamaged. But they cannot withstand the environmental influences to which filling machines are exposed – which soon becomes evident in the occurrence of pitting corrosion.

Stainless steel fittings are less sensitive in such environments, since they feature high resistance to corrosive influences, even without a coating. That is why the manufacturer chose stainless steel fittings from Series 17 of the Eisele INOXLINE. |
