Tetra Pak reduces production costs for Johnson's Juices

15 February 2011

Tetra Pak CPS, has integrated a new single strength apple juice road tanker intake, bulk storage and distribution network at the Johnsons Juices site in Headcorn, Kent

Tetra Pak CPS supplied Europe's largest freshly squeezed juice manufacturer with a new 30,000 litre chill jacketted vessel and a free issue 30,000 litre vessel with double seat valves, which allow Johnsons Juices to safely undertake production alongside CIP (Cleaning in Place) and therefore enhance production up-time.

To ensure the new equipment was incorporated into the existing production facility with no disruption to output, Tetra Pak CPS worked in close partnership with Johnsons Juices to plan all the site break-ins.

Preparations and planning of site activity also included the expansion of the company's existing Allen-Bradley control system, where careful dry and wet simulations of the routes were conducted before any product was allowed onto the system.

Tetra Pak CPS' flexibility and specialist skills in designing and manufacturing complete systems through to individual components means that it adopts a unique hands on approach to working with its customers. Johnsons Juices were involved at each stage of the project and Tetra Pak CPS' engineering knowledge allowed many additional process features to be included, which have maximised product integrity and minimised wastage.

The collaboration between Johnsons Juices and Tetra Pak CPS allowed the commissioning regime to interface the new system with more than a dozen existing site processes without any hitches or disruption to production.

Johnsons Juices Operations Manager, Howard Garbutt, commented: "We have developed an excellent working relationship with Tetra Pak CPS.

"I am extremely pleased with how well the project was managed and implemented and would have no hesitation in recommending Tetra Pak CPS to others."
