For hygienic packaging machinery solutions- Pretty is as pretty does.
When it comes to food packaging, none of the other stuff matters if it's not safe.
So much time goes into evaluating your bag style, choosing the right film material, maxing out how fast you can run acceptable packages, etc.
Of course, those are crucial and excited steps to vetting out the best vffs solution for your products but at the end of the day, if your packaging solution makes it difficult to maintain an exemplary level of hygiene, it won't matter what recloseable feature you picked or how fast you can run.
Food safety isn't a category you have the luxury of just glancing over, so what technologies are available for Rovema equipment that allow for consistent and efficient washdowns and changeovers?
Automated Wet Cleaning for Auger Fillers
Rovema's chemical-free automated washdown system available on our range of auger dosers allows users to reduce their downtime spent cleaning and drying the filling component by 89%. The four-step process displayed in the video above of pre-rinsing, flooding, rinsing, and drying, is automated and not only safer for your customers but your operators as well.
Even though it's chemical-free, it's advantageous as the components inside of the auger move as normal as the washing cycle happens, making sure no spot is missed.
Split Door Hopper- Accessibility that Comes Standard
Another auger filler feature is the high level of accessibility for your maintenance and operations teams.
Getting into a typical auger filler has always been a pain but for Rovema augers, they come standard with a split door hopper that opens up 180 degrees.
The hopper also comes standard with a window, allowing operators to easily monitor product levels inside.
Premium Seal® Technology for Maximum Seal Integrity
Many common issues that producers experience with seal integrity, like the film running off-center or product getting caught in the seal, are thankfully visible to the human eye or pulled by leak detection technology.
But for some film types like metalized film, the sealing process can cause micro-leakers in the edges of the film that compromise the shelf life of the product and make for unhappy consumers.
Rovema's Premium Seal ® process uses two sealing pressures in each cycle, allowing the jaws to preheat the film prior to applying full force, preventing these micro-leakers.
Rovema machine seal integrity, strength, and safety are unmatched in the VFFS industry.
