Freudenberg seals help minimise flavour transfer problems

15 March 2019

Beverage bottlers know the problem of flavour transfer all too well. If the wrong elastomer is used, a new batch can taste like the previous one, even though the facilities were cleaned between batches. The problem being the flavour is transferred from the beverage to the sealing material and then, far worse, back to the (new) beverage. With the right choice of sealing material from Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, this problem can be minimised or avoided completely.

From flavoured waters to fruit concentrates – the number of beverages on the market is immense. The major difficulty in beverage production is the rapid changeover from one product to the next, which makes well thought-out process optimisation and batch sequences indispensable. This involves not only efficient planning of the bottling process, but also guaranteeing the desired taste of the individual batches. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies can provide sealing materials optimally suited to the process media, to help prevent unnecessary downtimes caused by constantly changing seals. These products are available from Dichtomatik UK Ltd, the exclusive provider for Freudenberg’s food and beverage related products in the UK.

In the processing industry, elastomers should ideally be able to withstand corrosive cleaning media, be resistant to all products offered by the bottler in question, and offer a long service life. 

Whatever the beverage being bottled, seals from Freudenberg Sealing Technologies help to minimise or even completely avoid flavour transfer between batches.
