Extended Shelf Life Filling Technology
Federal specializes in durable and hygienic designs for filling and capping solutions.  With an understanding of customer demands, Federal develops filling systems that ensure quality, freshness, and flavor of products.  In addition to keeping products fresh, Federal also offers superior machine characteristics for a long machine life. 
In recent years, Federal has introduced a variety of innovative technology to provide the latest in filling and capping abilities.  At Pack Expo 2012, the company unveiled the extended shelf life filling system, ESL filler.  This machine offers the latest in filling technology.  Working at maximum efficiency, this 30-valve net-weight, non-contact system is available for a wide range of industries.
Features on the filling machine include a 10-station pick and place capping turret, a hot water sanitizing system for juice or drinking yogurt applications or steam sterilization for ESL Ultra-High-Temperature processed milk or dairy beverages.  With versatility to accommodate numerous products, this Federal machine works effectively in any production room. 
But that’s not all Federal has to offer.  At the same Expo, the company displayed a filler and capper.  This system is specifically designed for a picante salsa hot sauce application.  The filler offers a gravity pressure 42-valve system capable of running five liters through 350-milliliter PET bottles.  Features on this unique system include automated clean-in-place with bi-directional flow of cleaning solution and optional neck handling and sanitizing systems. 
Federal has a filling and capping solution for any product need.  For stand-alone capping technology, a five-station free-standing pick and place capping system is available. Designed to cap round industrial-style gallon bottles, this machine can be electronically synchronized to the operation of a filler.

Federal offers a variety of cleaning equipment.  Cleaning and sanitizing machinery for processing and packaging dairy products is available to provide high product quality and food safety.  

Proper sanitation is used to lower waste, improve output, and ensure a healthy bottom line.  Before automated clean in place system, the dairy industry used packaging equipment that could be dissembled, cleaned with a brush and soapy water, and air-dried.  

After, the machines were reassembled and sanitized before production.  Utilizing this method caused unnecessary, time-consuming labor demands and was not as effective due to contamination during reassembly.  

With all of the troubles that came along with manual cleaning, it wasn’t long before automated solutions were created.  Federal offers the clean in place cleaning method to ensure sanitation standards are met with precision.  The CIP cleaning method uses tanks for rinse water and cleaning solutions, pumps, and piping circuits in order to complete a CIP loop.

The importance of the circulation system through the product is to remove dairy soils that could contaminate fresh products.  If circulation does not have the proper flow, temperature, or detergent concentration, deposits on product contact surfaces and residues cause contamination.  

The result of contamination, among many factors, is off-flavors and poor keeping quality.  

Early clean in place method problems resulted from inconsistencies in the procedure.  Issues, such as the construction of the equipment, seams in the surfaces, poor welds, and crevices that trapped milk soils, resulted in the presence of microorganisms.  

Federal established superior machinery to establish clean equipment for a wide variety of industries.

Tips on Choosing Clean-in-Place Technologies in the Dairy Industry

In the dairy industry, it is necessary to clean and sanitize equipment for processing and packaging products.  To ensure a high level of food safety, product quality, and to establish and maintain consumer trust, proper sanitation is required.  Additional benefits to sanitation include lowering waste and improving output.  

The history of sanitizing dairy filling machines sheds light on the new technologies utilized for superior sanitation and cleanliness in the dairy industry.

Before clean in place systems were invented and utilized, the dairy industry packaging equipment was cleaned with a brush, soap, and water.  Then, it was air-dried.  The machine were then reassembled and sanitized.  And, though this time consuming method was labor intensive and ineffective, it took several years before any changes in sanitation were created.

Manual cleaning was dangerous because the equipment was easily contaminated during reassembly.  Thus, filling machine manufacturers began making strides in automated solutions.  The start of CIP was a long time coming.  And, in its beginning, tanks for rinse water, cleaning solutions, pumps, and piping circuits were required to complete a CIP loop.  

There was much though and engineering necessary for successful clean in place solutions.  It was crucial to circulate solutions through the product contact conduits at an established flow rate to remove dairy soils that could contaminate fresh product.  

However, manufacturers realized that insufficient flow in circulation, incorrect temperature, and low detergent concentrations were affecting the quality and flavor of the products.  

A solution was created to control the basic requirements that ensure proper cleaning.  Time, temperature, flow velocity, and solution concentration became the leading factors to consider.  The new system developed included a skidded unit, a centrifugal pump, a sanitary, air-actuated divert valve, and a stainless steel steam heating package.  Later, an automated dosing system was added on to dispense acid, liquid caustic, and sanitizer.  Finally, a conductivity sensor was added for monitoring the acidity of the reagents.

The systems purpose was to ensure that a high speed flow rate was achieved at the proper temperature and cleaning solution concentration.  Federal created the E-Series filling valve assembly.  This machinery cleans the outside and the product contact surfaces of the filling valve.  

Using the E-Series filling valve with the CIP and sanitary-in-place canister in addition to the closed filler bowl allows for extended shelf life that cannot be typically reached with a contact filler.
