SAM® has been introduced as the core of an aseptic process chain. The basic components of the aseptic process system are an inclined, vacuum-tight and hermetically closed process container with a mixing tool of optimized design. SAM® is designed in compact dimensions and built up in a modular form so that the process-relevant steps are positioned on a basic rack and can be controlled from there. The aseptic process solution used in batch production, or batch method, enables the use of ESL (Extended-Shelf-Life) technology not only for liquid products, but also for particulate inlays. The sterilization process and the cooling process take place in a container – without repacking and with direct treatment of the product.
