Juices

Juice is a beverage made from the extraction or pressing out of the natural liquid contained in fruit and vegetables. Juice is commonly consumed as a beverage or used as an ingredient or flavoring in foods or other beverages, such as smoothies. Juice emerged as a popular beverage choice after the development of pasteurization methods allowed for its preservation without using fermentation.

At Summit, our advanced filling technology can protect your juice from microbial contamination; we can provide you solutions for aseptic or hot filling with capacity range from 2000 to 48000bph.

A HOT FILL LINE PASTEURISES THE LIQUID, KILLING ANY HARMFUL ORGANISMS SUCH AS BACTERIA, MOULDS, AND YEASTS.
  • Sensitive high-acid beverages (< 4.5 pH) are pasteurised between 95-110 °C to neutralise the microbiological state
  • Liquid is then held at this temperature for several seconds before cooled to between 80 to 92 °C for filling
  • After filling and capping, containers are laid on their sides to sterilise the caps and kill unwanted organisms
  • Bottles are rapidly cooled to less than 40 °C in a cooling tunnel with water to ensure product and vitamin integrity
  • Ambient stability and extended shelf life ranges between 6 to 12 months
  • Shelf life duration is determined by oxygen barrier sensitivity, storage conditions, as well as size and type of the beverage bottle 
AN ASEPTIC FILLING LINE BOTTLES THE BEVERAGE PRODUCT AT AN AMBIENT TEMPERATURE WHILE PRESERVING ORGANOLEPTIC PROPERTIES AND KEEPING IT BACTERIA-FREE.
  • Beverage is briefly heated before filling
  • Container, bottle or preform, is sterilised
  • Container sterilisation can be wet or dry
  • Most traditional is wet and most innovative and sustainable is dry preform sterilisation
Summit brings you all the benefits of PET aseptic filling solutions with dry preform decontamination. This unique solution ensures product integrity and cost efficiency and maintains production flexibility and sustainability.
