Benco Pack: worldwide aseptic solutions

The Imola-based Group keeps on growing. Sterilization now carried out with hydrogen peroxide

Benco Pack, the Piacenza-based company of the Sacmi Group that specialises in the design and construction of horizontal form-fill-seal machines for the packaging of liquid and paste-like foods in rigid containers, continues to expand thanks to its aseptic solutions.
“It’s in this last field that we produce our most sophisticated products; it is a field that is growing fast in the wake of ever-more stringent legislation and, most importantly, growing consumer awareness when it comes to hygiene and food preservation”, explains general manager, Gianni Minganti. “This technology , in fact, drastically reduces - without having to resort to white rooms – the bacterial load inside the packages and so ensures long-lasting food product quality”. Benco Pack’s HFFS machines, in fact, feature a completely closed tunnel in which the entire processing cycle is carried out: from container forming to lid sealing.
The aseptic technology adopted by Benco Pack is based on hydrogen peroxide. “We’re able to reduce the bacterial load by a ratio of 1 to 100,000 in just two hours, while those still sterilising with steam have to wait up to 12 hours, or “settle for” a “logarithm 4” bacterial load reduction (that is, 1 in 10,000)”. On the export front “we’re gaining ground on all markets”, continues Minganti, “from Europe to South East Asia, from Latin America to the Near East. Iran is showing a marked propensity for investment in advanced technology and is, at this time, one of the most interesting outlets for our products”.
