Holland, MI, March 22, 2021 – Fogg Filler is continually focused on improving technology that better serves our customers and the environment. Fogg’s newest sanitizing solution for your filling needs is our closed-looped Ultrazone O4® solution. The sanitization process can perform at a 3 – 6+ log reduction, resulting in a near-aseptic rinse for your bottles.
Ultrazone O4® creates a hydrogen peroxide “like” solution from a combination of electricity, air and water, which keeps chemical cost ultra low and increases profitability on your filling machine. With the ability to filter and reuse the water-based solution, one system can theoretically save 18,000 gallons of water a day, increasing your facility’s savings on wastewater disposal.
The Ultrazone O4® solution comes complete with the Ultrazone O4® skid and fully enclosed, custom rotary bottle sanitizing/rinsing turrets to match your exact requirements. The Ultrazone O4® skid creates and recycles the solution continuously, while the sanitizer/rinser turrets accurately apply the solution to the bottles to achieve the desired level of sanitization. The fully sealed door enclosure around the turrets safely contains all fumes during operation using carefully designed, HEPA pressurized airlocks at the bottle entry and discharge points and special electronic door locks only open after fumes are safely evacuated from the chamber.
During the sanitization process, bottles may need to be treated on one or more turrets, depending on the line run speed and necessary contact time. Once inside the enclosure, bottles are first sprayed aggressively inside and out with the sanitizing solution in an upright position to start the contact time and loosen mechanical debris. They are then passed on to the sanitizer/rinser turrets where the bottles are rinsed upside down so that solution may flow out of the bottles. In a typical two turret installation, the first turret will sanitize your bottles with the Ultrazone O4® solution and the second turret can be used to simply drain or rinse with another solution of your choice. Lastly, the bottles pass through a HEPA pressurized degassing tunnel and out through the exit airlock. Once the bottle is out of the chamber and inside the filler, the filling and capping process proceeds as it would on any Fogg filler.
This technology can be purchased on new machines, replace your existing sanitizer/rinser system, or be paired with any existing “stand alone” filler. We truly believe that this technology will nearly eliminate the need for costly chemicals in the sanitizing process and save our customers millions each year.
Fogg continues to improve technology and provide the highest level of reliability for your production lines.
