preform sterilizer / process / chemical / heat
Predis™ is a unique, proven dry preform decontamination solution built on a long history with sensitive products, impressive aseptic expertise and innovative PET technology that goes unmatched in the liquid packaging industry.
The preform is decontaminated with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) before being heated in the oven, which activates the H2O2 from the existing preform-heating stage and achieves a high level of decontamination. This results in a reduced risk of peroxide residue remaining within the preform. The same dry decontamination technology is applied for caps with Capdis™.
Predis is supplied mainly in Combi configuration including preform decontamination, blowing, filling and capping. This technology is used by many major beverage and dairy companies and Sidel Combi Predis™ FMa is the beverage industry standard for aseptically producing PET packaging for teas, juices, nectars, isotonics and liquid dairy products (such as UHT milk or soy milk).
Predis is now available in a configuration that is compatible with the latest generation of Sidel Matrix equipment. With all the innovations of the Sidel Matrix blower generation, plus the continuous technical improvements of our dry preform decontamination solution in recent years, the new Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa offers the beverage industry:
