Investigation and Analysis on development prospect of beverage machinery in China
The domestic beverage industry market is a new industry that has gradually developed after the reform and opening up. The renewal of beverage machinery and equipment has also driven the changes and development of the beverage and food industry. In recent years, with the improvement of residents' consumption awareness and purchasing ability, China's beverage industry has made great progress, the market scale has been continuously expanded, and products have gradually diversified, it has developed from a single soda into a beverage system including carbonated beverages, fruit juice beverages, functional beverages, drinking water, etc. , providing consumers with more choices.
The continuous subdivision of the beverage market also puts forward more and higher requirements for beverage machinery.
Beverage Machinery is produced with the emergence of beverage industry and develops with the development of soft drink industry.
One of the highlights: tea beverage drives the development of hot-filled PET bottles. PET polyester beverage bottles have only been developed for more than 10 years in China, while hot-filled PET beverage bottles have a shorter history in China, only about 4 years, however, the momentum of development is fierce, surpassing most other packaging containers. This rapid momentum is mainly due to the rapid development of tea drinks.
Highlight 2: The Revolution of aseptic filling: instant filling, filling products sensitive to microorganisms such as tea, fruit juice, sweet wine, dairy products, sauces, vegetables, condiments, etc. is a challenge to traditional bottling technology, because possible microorganisms can lead to the growth of bacteria and mold, thus causing damage to the color and taste of the product.
The traditional method to solve this problem is to use hot filling, but the hot filling technology has many shortcomings, such as high container cost and loss of flavor caused by long-term exposure to high temperature, and high energy consumption.
In recent years, cold aseptic filling is considered as a feasible alternative to hot filling. This method ensures the hygiene of containers by controlling the sanitary conditions of the filling environment.
However, although these aseptic measures can maintain the nutrition of beverages or foods, they still need to sterilize the container itself, so they still need higher investment and operating costs, and will bring inconvenience to the operator.
