Full Range of Tetra Pak eBeam-based Filling Machines Now Available

Tetra Pak has announced that the full range of Tetra Pak® E3 machines, which is based on the revolutionary eBeam technology, is now ready for customer rollout. This means that customers can now produce all types of beverage products on an eBeam-based filling machine, both ambient and chilled, and in family or portion sized packages.

Charles Brand, Executive Vice President Product Management and Commercial Operations, says: “The use of eBeam in the packaging material sterilisation process is a ground-breaking first in the carton packaging industry. This will help the customer to cut operational costs by as much as 20%, while reducing the environmental impact, making water recycling easier and lowering energy consumption.”

The Tetra Pak® E3/Speed Hyper, the world’s fastest aseptic carton filling machine, is among the latest introductions to the range. The new machine runs at an industry-leading capacity of 40,000 ambient portion packages per hour, more than 60% faster than its next nearest carton packaging rival. This is possible thanks to the introduction of eBeam sterilisation, which completes the task more efficiently and more rapidly than has previously been possible.

Also making its debut in the range is the Tetra Pak® E3/Flex which will produce a new chilled family package, the Tetra Brik® 900 Ultra Edge. With a shape that is taller and slimmer than many family size carton packages on the market, this innovation helps customers differentiate their products in the highly competitive chilled market.

With the two latest additions, Tetra Pak now offers a full range of eBeam based filling machines –

    • Tetra Pak® E3/CompactFlex for chilled portion packages;
    • Tetra Pak® E3/Speed for ambient family packages;
    • Tetra Pak® E3/Flex for chilled family packages;
    • Tetra Pak® E3/Speed Hyper for ambient portion packages.

“EBeam is the future direction of the industry, and we will continue to expand our offerings to include more packaging formats and features,” Charles Brand adds.
