Serac Innovates and Reduces Environmental Impact Thanks To Blustream®


    Serac confirms its expertise in container treatment based on dry processes with an industrial sterilization solution using ebeam technology. Capable of ensuring a 5 log bacteriological reduction on Bacillus Pumilus without leaving any chemical residue in the container and to eliminate the consumption of chemical agents to decontaminate a bottle, BluStream® is a real technological breakthrough in the aseptic filling of plastic bottles. BluStream® is particularly interesting for manufacturers wishing to highlight: Production processes that respect both human beings and the environment, and brands that follow natural trends and target sensitive consumers (babies, elderly people, allergic people, etc.). Unlike peracetic acid (PAA) and hydrogen peroxide (H₂O₂) treatments that rely on chemical principles BluStream® is based on a physical process. It uses an issuer which throws an electron beam over the container’s surface. Electrons quickly destroy micro-organisms by breaking their DNA chains. This enables BluStream® to achieve a 5 log bacteriological reduction on Bacillus Pulumilus with a 1.5 liter bottle in about 5 seconds. Without the use of chemicals, BluStream® ensures that containers are totally free of any toxic residue. BluStream® is a simpler process which makes sterilization easier to monitor. Its process only depends on 3 critical easy to control parameters (voltage, current intensity and exposure time). BluStream® treatment is also more economical in production because it requires no chemicals, no water, no compressed air, and a minimum increase in electrical consumption comparable to the H₂O₂ treatment.
