Challenges of liquid filling and packaging machines

Nichrome aims to deliver on growing customer needs

It is not easy to package liquid food. Liquid foods as commodities require utmost care when packing, sealing and most importantly post packing as it also includes the transportation, till it reaches the consumer. When it comes to liquid filling and packaging, the pouches have to be dry, convenient to handle and attractive. Liquids have unique requirements for packaging, since they need to stay fresh and odourless on the supermarket shelves for a long time. However, Indian form, fill and seal (FFS) machine manufacturers are up for the challenge.

Among the few well-known Indian FFS machine manufacturers, Pune-based Nichrome is one which is an expert in manufacturing, liquid packaging machine, dairy products packaging and automatic filling machine. Nichrome’s horizontal FFS and vertical FFS machines have been designed to attend to the vast and varied requirements in the liquid filling and packaging segment. These include edible oil filling and packaging machines, ghee pouch packaging machine, milk packaging and other dairy products packaging solutions.

Impact of the filler can cause the liquid to change its taste, color, smell and taste. The state and viscosity of the product can be unconsciously changed depending on the liquid filling machines. For example, if the liquid is passed through the pipes faster than the required speed the liquid’s physical structure can change causing it to be less viscous. Liquid packaging also demands that every pouch is filled with the same amount of liquid maintaining the consistency of the filling machine.

Nichrome’s liquid filling and packaging solutions aim to provide vital accuracy while packing through different pouches of various sizes and weights, thus reducing the percentage of wastage per batch. Nichrome’s leak detectors test for pin-hole leaks in individual containers by comparing air pressure decay rate to a benchmark container; thus ensuring no leaks, increased reliability and accuracy.

Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia.
