Speaking with DairyReporter.com at drinktec 2013 about its new Innosept Asbofill ASR machine, KHS pinpointed increasing demand from liquid milk processors for PET packaging as a key driver of fresh interest in aseptic filling technology.

According to KHS, the Innosept Asbofill ASR, which has a filling rate of up to 36,000 bottles per hour, is ideal for a range of beverages including juice, sports drinks, milk and milk beverages.

But KHS' Head of Mechanical & Electrical Design Engineering for Aseptic Filling Technology, Paul-Uwe Winterhoff, highlighted milk as an area of particular growth for the company in aseptic filling.


"In the last year we have seen a common trend - that milk is changing from HDPE bottles or from the carton to the PET bottle," ​said Winterhoff. 

"A lot of machines are now sold, for example in Russia, to go with dairy products in PET."
