NORTHLAKE, Ill., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Scholle Packaging, the Pioneer of Bag-in-Box™, is pleased to introduce its latest bag-in-box packaging innovation at the 2011 Pack Expo in Las Vegas. The Scholle SureFill® High-Acid filler is a single-head, fully-automatic, linear bag-in-box filler and is also offered in Fresh and Extended Shelf Life (ESL) models to suit the requirements of a wide array of products. According to Rick Pindur, Director of Global Equipment Engineering at Scholle Packaging, "the filler's design shares many components across multiple models, allowing the addition of modules for customer-specific applications or future upgrades."

The new platform is a combination of the most advanced bag-in-box filling technologies in an operations-friendly machine that delivers production versatility and speed. This combination offers processors: bag size and fitment versatility; filling speeds up to 15 one-gallon bags per minute; decreased operations down-time with automatic changeovers; longer run periods between clean-up and enhanced product and operator safety.

This filler will bring processors the ability to offer popular 100% preservative-free, aseptic products to large-volume customers with product end-use flexibility. Curt Linson, Market Segment Director for Beverages at Scholle Packaging remarked that "the ability to package shelf-stable juices without preservatives brings a whole new level of product quality to the dispensed juice marketplace."

The Scholle SureFill® High-Acid will be showcased at Scholle Packaging's booth (#5937) at Pack Expo 2011 in Las Vegas, September 26-28.
