Bosch Packaging Technology: Coffee protection valve
See it at PACK EXPO, Booth #S-3514! Applied on coffee packaging at a rate of 150 valves/min, the V55 external coffee protection valve from Bosch Packaging Technology prevents product deterioration and enhances product protection while offering material, logistics, and storage space savings as well as a changeover time reduction.
Thanks to its small size (only 12.5 x 12.5 x 0,35 millimeters, 0.49 x 0.49 x 0.014 inches), with the new V55 the number of valves per reel is now doubled to 12,000 in comparison with previous generations. This reduces storage space requirements and transportation costs for coffee manufacturers.
In addition, reels do not need to be changed as often as before, enabling operators to use their time more effectively. The compact design of the V55 valves requires 62% less paper film, contributing to material savings. This reduction also significantly decreases paper waste and supports sustainability efforts.
Smaller in size than the previous generation, the new V55 valve may be coupled with the Bosch valve applicator CVA V55 or retrofitted into third party packaging machinery.
