What is the Cavitus BLE-FoamControl solution?
Cavitus has perfected ultrasound technology for use in the food and beverage industry, in particular addressing the foam issues present in the majority of beverage filling lines. The highly efficient titanium BLE FoamControl unit provides an easy to install, safe and cost-effective method of removing foam, in an increasingly competitive market. And it comes with a performance guarantee.*
By removing the need for chilling or slower line speeds, Cavitus delivers productivity improvement whether it’s for carbonated soft drinks (CSDs), non-carbonated juices, teas, dairy drinks, sparkling wine, carbonated alcoholic pre-mixes or beer. The solution can be applied all sizes of can, bottle and pouch containers on CSD, aseptic and hot fill lines.
It is inexpensive to operate (using about as much energy as a light bulb) and it doesn’t affect the quality or taste of the product.What problems does it solve?
Bottling lines are often run at slow speeds to remove the problems caused by foam creation during the filling process. A key indicator of this problem is if a production line is running at less than its original design capacity. By eliminating the excess foam created in the bottling process using ultrasound technology, Cavitus delivers an increased line speed of 10% or more.
Lines also often require the product to be chilled in order to adequately reduce foaming, thereby increasing capital expenditure and energy usage. Cavitus removes the need for chilling, reducing your energy costs and your carbon footprint.
What benefits does the BLE-Defoaming unit offer?
The advantage of the Cavitus technology is that because each unit is designed to suit each beverage line, it allows you to decide how you benefit. You can:
- Increase productivity
- Increase your bottle yield
- Improve the efficiency of your nitrogen doser
- Reduce your costs per unit
- Reduce your waste and rejects rates
- Reduce the risk of cap, thread and seal contamination
- Eliminate CO2 bubble breakers on beer lines and reduce CO2 usage and reduce WHS risks.
