SEE (formerly Sealed Air) has announced the launch of a new automated packaging system for liquids – the CRYOVAC Brand 308A CE Vertical Form-Fill-Seal System.

With what the company describes as a “versatile vertical filling approach”, this system can accommodate packages weighing up to 2 kg in either one or two phases. SEE says that the solution is “the perfect choice” for smaller and medium-sized processors or food services, offering a compact footprint and a squeeze roller system.

The system can pack various types of liquids, including those with particles or solids. Operating at a speed of 28 packs per minute, it can handle hot or cold products with temperatures reaching up to 95 degrees Celsius. Its three different tooling sizes aim to ensure optimal coverage for a wide range of products.

SEE’s vertical pouch packaging has no headspace, which the company says results in superior quality and protection for the products. SEE also claims that the pouches are not only convenient to store, open, and dispose of, but they also offer cost-efficiency, lightweight design, and resistance to damage while preserving flavor and freshness.
