The TBA/3 is a packaging machine that has been completely reconditioned. Before it is re-released onto the market, each machine undergoes a thorough overhaul and test. The entire machine is stripped down, all components are inspected, and either replaced with new ones or brought back to their original condition, as appropriate. The result is a cost-effective machine with performances fully comparable to that of a new machine.
The Tetra Brik Aseptic packaging machine TBA/3 can be ordered to package any one of four different volumes within the range of 200 to 1000 ml.
The machine produces packages which can be opened by either cutting or tearing off a section of the top. A perforation on the carton facilitates tear-off opening. Perforation heater for easier tear-off opening is available for 500 ml Baseline and 1000 ml Baseline packages. The machine produces 4500 packages/hour for 200 ml and 250 ml volumes and 3600 packages/hour for 500 ml and 1000 ml volumes.
Tetra Pak’s chemo-thermal aseptic system is based on many year’s experience of supplying packaging lines. Hundreds of TBA/3 machines are in use all over the world.
Hydrogen peroxide is applied to the inside of the packaging material, and a roller ensures even distribution.
The packaging material is shaped into a tube, the edges are sealed and the packaging material tube passes the tube heater which vaporizes the hydrogen peroxide and in combination with over pressure of hot sterile air ensures that residues of hydrogen peroxide are removed and the inside of the packaging material tube is free from infections.
Reliable design synchronization
The correct position of artwork on each package is guaranteed by a sophisticated design correction system. Photocells monitor the position of the artwork and transmit information to the design correction system. If necessary this system corrects the artwork position during production.
Good working environment
The TBA/3 Tetra Pak filling machine is simple to operate and very reliable. The control panel is positioned so that it is clearly visible to the operator working by the machine. When two or more machines are located side by side, their platforms can be linked by bridges. This makes them easier for the staff to operate, and the moving components are enclosed for a safe and quiet working environment. The machine is clad entirely in stainless steel, making it easy to clean and ensures maximum hygiene.
A separate cleaning unit (SCU) is available as optional equipment. The unit cleans product valves and filling pipes internally, and is separate from the filler as well as from the processing equipment.
Meticuluos reconditioning of the filling machine
A new TBA/3 filler is given a very thorough overhaul at the plant before being delivered to the customer. This ensures a cost-effective machine with performance fully comparable to that of a new machine.
The overhaul is exhaustive. A machine that has been in use for some years is first stripped down and all components are washed and cleaned. Components which have been particularly subject to wear and tear, such as magnetic valves, bearings and bushings, are replaced. Other parts are brought up to standard by blasting, painting, zinc-plating or brushing. All components are examined. Once the examination is complete and all necessary replacement and reconditioning of components has been carried out, the machine is reassembled and fitted with any extra features required by the customer. The machine undergoes the same final testing programme as a new machine, and has to meet the same requirements before it is approved. All machines are reconditioned to 600V development specification, which includes fitting of a cooled bath for hydrogene peroxide, centre drive for the final folder chain and improved nozzles for the heating elements in the final folder.
