Total Cost Of Ownership: Analysis For Capital Packaging Equipment Purchasing
Minimizing capital cost is a common strategy for purchasing packaging line equipment. But, operating costs can offset that strategy. This article details the full picture of purchasing packaging line equipment.
Improving Shelf Life With Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)
Tulip, one of Denmark’s leading producers of processed food for the domestic and export market, produces around 90 tons of sausages each day. A large proportion of these – about 60 tons a day – is packaged under a modified atmosphere of carbon dioxide and nitrogen to keep the product fresh and improve its shelf life. This case study shows how the company improved its efficiency by installing a Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) system.
On-Line Gas Analyzer Improves Shelf Life For Meat Processing Company
Bye-bye manual testing: Replaced by new on-line gas analyzer. This case study examines how a meat processing company made the switch from manually and randomly testing of its packages five times each day to an on-line headspace analyzer for its Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) products.
Seafood Company Increases Quality With Package Integrity Testing Technology
In 2004, Mariscos Linamar, a Spanish seafood company, began to investigate the innovative idea of packaging a proportion of its product in a modified atmosphere, with the aim to extend the product shelf life and improve its appearance. Years of research followed. After extensive research and trials, the optimal gas mixture, comprising oxygen and carbon dioxide blended in a ratio that depends on the product and the format of the package, had been decided upon as well as the best packaging approach. This case study illustrates the process the company used to implement Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) with thermosealed trays.
Major Poultry Processing Manufacturer Gains Additional Shelf Life With Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)
Hellenic Quality Foods (HQF) is a leading food company in Greece, packaged its products on trays with stretch film until early 2014. This case study shows how the company made the move to Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) to improve its products shelf and extend its customer reach.
How Adopting Package Integrity Testing Increases Quality
Omnibar, a small Montana-based company that produces a unique, high-nutrition food bar, was seeking new markets for the high-grade, grass-fed cattle reared on the family ranch in Montana’s Blackfoot River Valley. This case study examines how the company overcame the packaging challenges associated with its unique product.

Explanation, Methods, And Solutions For Chemical Treatment Of Industrial Water And Wastewater
We discuss the function of various types of chemicals used, and why we believe a FLEXFLO peristaltic dosing pump is the best choice to deliver those chemicals.
Nitrogen Removal At A Very Large Scale
Nitrogen removal standards are a pressing concern for meat and poultry processing plants. Historically, food processing plants discharging to public waterways or directly to publicly owned wastewater treatment plants have faced challenges in meeting effluent limitation guidelines (ELGs) for nutrient removal. That may soon become even tougher yet with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announcing in September 2021 that it has completed a detailed study of the meat and poultry products category and will initiate new rulemaking to revise the existing discharge standards for the industry.
