La décontamination sèche des préformes avec le Sidel Matrix Predis

Une production aseptique des boissons fiable et flexible

Predis™ est une solution exclusive et éprouvée de décontamination sèche des préformes qui s'appuie sur une longue expérience en matière de produits sensibles, une expertise aseptique impressionnante et des technologies innovantes inégalées sur le secteur du conditionnement des liquides.


La préforme est décontaminée avec de l'eau oxygénée (H2O2) avant d'être chauffée dans le four : l'H2O2 est ainsi activée dès la phase de chauffe des préformes et la décontamination atteint un niveau élevé. Ce processus limite le risque de résidu d'eau oxygénée dans la préforme. La même technologie de décontamination sèche s'applique aux bouchons avec Capdis™.


Predis est généralement employé dans une configuration Combi, qui intègre la décontamination des préformes, le soufflage, le remplissage et le bouchage. Cette technologie est utilisée par beaucoup de grands producteurs de boissons et de produits laitiers. Le Sidel Combi Predis™ FMa est la référence du secteur des boissons pour le conditionnement aseptique en PET des thés, jus, nectars, boissons isotoniques et produits laitiers liquides (comme le lait UHT et le lait de soja).


Le Predis est dorénavant disponible dans une configuration compatible avec la toute dernière génération d'équipements Sidel Matrix. Associant les innovations proposées sur les souffleuses Sidel Matrix et les améliorations techniques que nous avons opérées continuellement ces dernières années sur notre solution de décontamination sèche des préformes, le nouveau Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa offre plusieurs atouts au secteur des boissons :


  • la solution aseptique dotée de la décontamination sèche des préformes la plus rapide du marché ;
  • le meilleur coût total de possession sans faire de compromis sur la simplicité de fonctionnement ni sur la sécurité alimentaire ;
  • un niveau élevé de flexibilité des process conjugué à la fiabilité, à la démarche environnementale et aux économies effectuées.


  • The benefits of Sidel Matrix Predis

  • Flexibility for beverage producers

    Matrix Predis 2The Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa offers total flexibility with maximum uptime. Many beverage recipes can be produced in PET bottles, in various bottle shapes and sizes, without compromising on production rates or lightweighting possibilities.



    Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa is:

    • suitable for a wide variety of sensitive beverages of high and low acidity in PET like teas, juices, nectars and isotonics, as well as liquid dairy products such as UHT milk or soy milk
    • suitable for beverages distributed at ambient temperature (aseptic production configuration) or in cold chain (ultra clean production configuration)
    • available for a wide range of bottle formats, ranging from 0.2 to 2 litres
    • producing up to 60,000 bottles per hour, a 20% output increase compared to the previous Sidel blower generation with Predis
    • available for low to medium output up to 16,000 bottle per hour; the low-speed Combi Predis FMa is extremely versatile and very easy to install in order to achieve a quick ramp up, therefore a timely commercial production.


    Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa also offers beverage producers:

    • total bottle design freedom because the empty bottle is blown from a decontaminated preform and does not undergo any thermal stress
    • simple, fast and safe changeovers with electrical stretching
    • reduced downtime for liquid changeovers: a simple three-hour cleaning and sterilisation period between two bottle-to-bottle productions
    • possibility to apply a large range of flat and sports caps

  • Saving money and resources

    Compared to traditional aseptic filling systems, the new Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa offers cost-efficiency and an optimal environmental footprint:

    • Matrix Predis 1No water and almost no use of chemicals to sterilise the preform compared to traditional aseptic filling solutions
    • Because of the absence of thermal stress on the bottles and continuous by-the-neck transfer, there is no limit in terms of bottle lightweighting
    • Optimised production requires only one operator, reducing operating costs by up to 30% compared with standalone equipment
    • Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa has improved productivity with an higher overall output based on the same number of blow moulding stations compared to the previous generation of Sidel aseptic Combi (output up to 2,300 bottles per mould per hour)
    • Reduced electrical consumption by up to 45%: Sidel Matrix Ecoven requires fewer heating modules and lamps and reduces preform-heating time

  • High levels of safety and simplicity

    The Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa is designed to ensure food safety, product integrity and a longer shelf life for sensitive products without using preservatives. It is also simple to operate and maintain.

    • Aluminium foil is no longer required due to the tightness closure (rigidity of the PET bottleneck combined with caps specifically designed for aseptic packaging) completed with the Combi Predis FMa Capdis: protecting against micro-organisms for excellent food safety
    • Production and maintenance operations are improved as the simplified design has fewer transfer wheels making it more compact and more accessible
    • Efficient external preform decontamination with increased output as the oven is equipped with new, more powerful UV lamps
    • Improved air management in the oven
    • No sterile blower is required as the dry H2O2 preform decontamination is located before the oven and avoids any recontamination
    • Improved production environment safety as only relevant parts retained in blowing area
    • Fewer manual interventions required with automatic decontamination of the surfaces of transfer wheel

  • 165 hours of continuous aseptic production

    Matruix Predis smallThe Sidel Matrix Combi Predis FMa offers the longest aseptic bottling uptime available on the beverage market.





    • A completely aseptic filling environment with a continuous production run of 165 hours between two cleaning and sterilising cycles
    • Quick and easy format and liquid changeover: a simple three-hour cleaning and sterilisation period is required between bottle-to-bottle productions
    • Equipment can benefit from a longer lifespan with less maintenance, as components are subjected to less stress through fewer cleaning and sterilisation cycles

  • Low output Combi Predis FMa Blow-fill-cap system

    The low output Combi Predis FMa Capdis leverages Sidel unrivalled aseptic dry-preform and cap technology for those who need flexible aseptic PET packaging production at lower speed for small batches prior to a wide-scale roll-out, small volumes for regional markets or niche markets or for dairy applications.

    • A perfectly adapted packaging solution in terms of speed for a competitive advantage, benefitting from the latest continual developments in hygienic design, improved flexibility and ergonomics, with no compromise on quality or reliability.
    • A standard output of 12,000 bottles per hour for a 1L bottle, it can run up to 16,000 bottles per hour for smaller bottle formats
    • A bottling solution suitable to fill any kind of still or pulpy beverages, both products of high and low acidity, bottled in all common volumes required by the market - between 200 ml and 2L
    • Ultra-compact footprint to facilitate its implementation in new or existing plants. The reduction up to 30% of the footprint of the integrated PET blow-fill-cap solution compared with existing linear solutions, lessens the constraints of line layout
    • Its linear design allows for parallel packaging machines, which is a typical layout in the milk industry
    • With its special plug-and-play conception, on-site installation is simpler and faster and can be managed in 'hidden time' while installing the rest of the line
    • Despite its compact design, the platform remains ergonomic and straightforward. Good accessibility to the machine's key components has been maintained, allowing operators to maintain and manage it easily
