Description

  • Die Erfindung betrifft ein Verfahren und eine Vorrichtung zum Befüllen von flexiblen Folienbeuteln. Folienbeutel, die befüllt werden sollen, werden vor dem Befüllen in einem zusammengelegten Zustand gelagert. Um diese Befüllen zu können, werden die Folienbeutel vor dem Befüllen ausgeformt, was bedeutet, dass der Hohlraum geschaffen wird, in den das Füllgut eingefüllt werden soll.The invention relates to a method and a device for filling flexible foil bags. Foil bags to be filled are stored in a collapsed condition prior to filling. In order to be able to fill these, the film bags are formed before filling, which means that the cavity is created, in which the filling material is to be filled.
  • Hierzu ist aus der EP 0417810 , der EP 0908386 und der EP 0909708 bekannt, die Folienbeutel durch Aufblasen mit Luft auszuformen.This is from the EP 0417810 , of the EP 0908386 and the EP 0909708 known to form the foil bag by blowing with air.
  • In die ausgeformten Folienbeutel wird anschließend Füllgut eingefüllt (siehe EP 0909708 ), wobei das Füllgut aus hygienischen Gründen zur Desinfektion heiß abgefüllt wird.The filled foil bag is then filled with contents (see EP 0909708 ), where the contents are hot filled for sanitary reasons for disinfection.
  • Anschließend werden die Folienbeutel verschlossen, so dass das Füllgut in einem hygienisch einwandfreien Zustand verpackt ist und somit lange Zeit auch unter normalen Umgebungsbedingungen gelagert werden kann, ohne zu verderben.Subsequently, the film bags are sealed so that the contents are packed in a hygienically perfect condition and thus can be stored for a long time under normal environmental conditions without spoiling.
  • Die befüllten Folienbeutel müssen für die Weiterbehandlung anschließend gekühlt werden.The filled foil bags must then be cooled for further processing.
  • Durch die aufwendige Kühlung ist der Betrieb dieser Anlagen recht kostspielig.Due to the complex cooling of the operation of these systems is quite expensive.
  • Aus der GB963144 sind ein Verfahren und eine Vorrichtung zum Abfüllen von Flüssigkeiten gemäß den Oberbegriffen der Ansprüche 1 und 9 bekannt.From the GB963144 For example, a method and apparatus for filling liquids according to the preambles of claims 1 and 9 are known.
  • Aufgabe der vorliegenden Erfindung ist es daher, ein Verfahren und eine Vorrichtung zu schaffen, die im Betrieb kostengünstiger sind.The object of the present invention is therefore to provide a method and a device which are cheaper to operate.
  • Die Aufgabe wird gelöst durch ein Verfahren nach Anspruch 1 sowie eine Vorrichtung nach Anspruch 9.The object is achieved by a method according to claim 1 and an apparatus according to claim 9.
  • Gemäß dem Verfahren wird der Folienbeutel mit einem gasförmigen Medium ausgeformt, wobei das gasförmige Medium den Folienbeutel bereits desinfiziert. Ein Erhitzen des flüssigen Füllguts vor dem Befüllen kann somit zumindest teilweise vermieden werden. Das bedeutet, dass das Füllgut entweder gar nicht oder im Vergleich zum Stand der Technik weniger stark erhitzt werden muss. Daher kann auch die Kühlung mit einer geringeren Kühlleistung vorgesehen werden. Dies führt auch zu einer Schonung des Füllguts, da das Erhitzen des Füllguts dieses beinträchtigen kann.According to the method, the film bag is formed with a gaseous medium, the gaseous medium already disinfecting the film bag. Heating of the liquid contents before filling can thus be at least partially avoided. This means that the contents either do not have to be heated at all or, in comparison with the prior art, they need to be heated less. Therefore, the cooling can be provided with a lower cooling capacity. This also leads to a preservation of the contents, since the heating of the medium can affect this.
  • Desinfizieren bedeutet hier, dass die Keime, Bakterien oder ähnliches soweit reduziert werden, dass das Produkt während seiner Lebensdauer nicht von diesen beeinträchtigt wird. Dies umfasst auch ein völliges Sterilisieren, bei dem keine Keime, Bakterien oder ähnliches mehr vorliegen.Disinfecting here means that the germs, bacteria or the like are reduced so much that the product is not affected during its lifetime. This also includes a complete sterilization in which there are no more germs, bacteria or the like.
  • Die desinfizierende Wirkung des gasförmigen Mediums, das Luft als Trägergas umfasst, wird durch Zusatz von Ozon erreicht.The disinfecting effect of the gaseous medium, which comprises air as the carrier gas, is achieved by the addition of ozone.
  • In einer besonders vorteilhaften Ausführungsform wird der Beutel evakuiert, bevor er mit dem gasförmigen Medium ausgeformt wird. Dadurch wird erreicht, dass bei dem Ausformen des Folienbeutels mit dem gasförmigen Medium, das gasförmige Medium in alle Ecken und Winkel des flachliegenden Beutels gelangt und so die Desinfektionswirkung zuverlässiger im gesamten Inneren des Folienbeutels erreicht wird.In a particularly advantageous embodiment, the bag is evacuated before it is formed with the gaseous medium. This ensures that in the molding of the film bag with the gaseous medium, the gaseous medium reaches all corners and angles of the flat-lying bag and so the disinfecting effect is more reliably achieved in the entire interior of the film bag.
  • In einer weiteren Ausführungsform kann der Beutel, auch nachdem er ausgeformt wurde, wieder evakuiert werden, um so das desinfizierende gasförmige Medium zu entfernen. Anschließend kann der Folienbeutel wieder mit einem desinfizierten bzw. sterilen gasförmigen Medium und/oder dem Füllgut ausgeformt werden.In another embodiment, the pouch may be evacuated even after it has been molded so as to remove the disinfecting gaseous medium. Subsequently, the film bag can be formed again with a disinfected or sterile gaseous medium and / or the contents.
  • Auch ist es möglich, dass das desinfizierende gasförmige Medium mit einem desinfizierten bzw. sterilen Medium (z.B. sterile Heißluft) rausgespült wird, nachdem der Beutel ausgeformt wurde.It is also possible that the disinfecting gaseous medium is flushed out with a disinfected or sterile medium (e.g., sterile hot air) after the bag has been formed.
  • Auch ist es in einer vorteilhaften Ausführungsform möglich, nur wenig desinfizierendes gasförmiges Medium in den Folienbeutel zu geben und diesen anschließend mit einem desinfizierten bzw. sterilen gasförmigen Medium (z.B. sterile Heißluft) voll auszuformen. Hierbei wird mit dem desinfizierenden gasförmigen Medium eine teilweise Ausformung des Folienbeutels vorgenommen.Also, in an advantageous embodiment, it is possible to introduce only little disinfecting gaseous medium into the foil bag and then to fully mold it with a disinfected or sterile gaseous medium (eg sterile hot air). Here, a partial shaping of the film bag is made with the disinfecting gaseous medium.
  • In einer weiteren vorteilhaften Ausführungsform des Verfahrens ist es möglich, das gasförmige Medium zu erhitzen, bevor es zum Ausformen des Beutels verwendet wird. Durch das Erhitzen wird die desinfizierende Wirkung von Ozon, das dem gasförmigen Medium zugesetzt worden ist, erhöht.In a further advantageous embodiment of the method, it is possible to heat the gaseous medium before it is used to mold the bag. By heating, the disinfecting effect of ozone added to the gaseous medium is increased.
  • Die Vorrichtung weist eine Ausformeinrichtung zum Ausformen der Folienbeutel mit einem gasförmigen Medium sowie eine Fülleinrichtung zum Befüllen der Folienbeutel mit einem flüssigen Medium auf. Weiterhin weist die Vorrichtung eine Einrichtung auf, die dem gasförmigen Medium eine desinfizierende Wirkung verleiht. Dies umfasst eine Einrichtung zum Winzufügen von Ozon und kann weiter eine Einrichtung zum Erhitzen des gasförmigen Mediums und/oder zum Hinzufügen von Wasserstoffperoxid oder ähnlichem zu dem gasförmigen Medium sein.The device has a molding device for molding the film bag with a gaseous medium and a filling device for filling the film bag with a liquid medium. Furthermore, the device has a device that gives the gaseous medium a disinfecting effect. This includes means for ozone adding and may further be means for heating the gaseous medium and / or adding hydrogen peroxide or the like to the gaseous medium.
  • Ozon ist Luft als Trägergas hinzugesetzt worden, um so das gasförmige Medium zu bilden. Dies kann mit einem Dosierventil, einer Dosierpumpe oder ähnlichem geschehen.Ozone has been added to air as a carrier gas to form the gaseous medium. This can be done with a metering valve, a metering pump or the like.
  • Auch ist es möglich, dass Ozon durch Bestrahlung von Sauerstoff oder Luft hergestellt und so dem gasförmigen Medium hinzugefügt wird.It is also possible that ozone is produced by irradiation of oxygen or air and thus added to the gaseous medium.
  • In einer vorteilhaften Ausführungsform weist die Vorrichtung eine Evakuiereinrichtung und/oder eine Verschließeinrichtung für die Beutel auf.In an advantageous embodiment, the device has an evacuation device and / or a closing device for the bags.
  • Die Evakuiereinrichtung kann so ausgebildet sein, dass sie zum Evakuieren der Beutel vor dem Ausformen oder auch zum Evakuieren nach dem erstmaligen Ausformen dient. Im letzten Fall kann eine zweite Ausformeinrichtung zum Ausformen der Folienbeutel eingesetzt werden.The evacuation device may be configured to evacuate the bags prior to forming or to evacuate after initial forming. In the latter case, a second molding device can be used to mold the film bag.
  • Weiterhin weist die Vorrichtung vorteilhafterweise eine Spüleinrichtung auf, mit der der Folienbeutel gespült wird, um so das desinfizierende gasförmige Medium zu verdrängen. Das Spülen kann beispielsweise durch Einleiten von vorzugsweise desinfizierter bzw. steriler Luft geschehen, die das gasförmige desinfizierende Medium verdrängt. Auch ist es möglich das desinfizierende Medium zu neutralisieren. Falls beispielsweise ein stark oxidierendes desinfizierendes gasförmiges Medium eingesetzt wird, kann es mit einem reduzierenden Mittel neutralisiert werden. Dieses Mittel kann auch statt des Spülens eingesetzt werden.Furthermore, the device advantageously has a rinsing device, with which the foil bag is rinsed so as to displace the disinfecting gaseous medium. Rinsing can be done, for example, by introducing preferably disinfected or sterile air, which displaces the gaseous disinfecting medium. It is also possible to neutralize the disinfecting medium. For example, if a highly oxidizing disinfecting gaseous medium is used, it can be neutralized with a reducing agent. This agent can also be used instead of rinsing.
  • Vorteilhafte Ausführungsformen des Verfahrens und der Vorrichtung sind in den Figuren dargestellt. Dabei zeigt:
    • Fig. 1 in schematischer Darstellung die verschiedenen Zustände eines Folienbeutels in einer Ausführungsform des Verfahrens,
    • Fig. 2 eine schematische Darstellung einer Vorrichtung zum Befüllen von flexiblen Folienbeuteln,
    • Fig. 3 zeigt eine schematische Darstellung einer Ausformeinrichtung.
    Advantageous embodiments of the method and the device are shown in the figures. Showing:
    • 1 is a schematic representation of the various states of a foil bag in an embodiment of the method,
    • 2 is a schematic representation of an apparatus for filling flexible foil bags,
    • Fig. 3 shows a schematic representation of a molding device.
  • In Fig. 1a ist ein Folienbeutel 1 dargestellt, wie er in einem flachen gefalteten Zustand vorliegt. Fig. 1 a zeigt einen Schnitt durch den Folienbeutel 1. Der Folienbeutel 1 weist zwei Seitenfolien 1a und 1b sowie eine Bodenfolie 1c auf.In Fig. 1a, a film bag 1 is shown as it is in a flat folded state. 1 a shows a section through the film bag 1. The film bag 1 has two side films 1a and 1b and a bottom film 1c.
  • In Fig. 1b ist dargestellt, wie ein Röhrchen 2 in das obere Ende des Folienbeutels 1 eingeführt wurde. Seitlich des oberen Endes des Folienbeutels 1 sind Backen 3a und 3b dargestellt, die ein Ausströmen von Gas aus dem Inneren des Folienbeutels 1 nach außen hin, weitgehend verhindern.In Fig. 1b is shown how a tube 2 was inserted into the upper end of the film bag 1. Side of the upper end of the film bag 1 jaws 3a and 3b are shown, which largely prevent leakage of gas from the interior of the film bag 1 to the outside.
  • Durch das Röhrchen 2 wird nun gasförmiges Medium in den Folienbeutel 1 eingeblasen (siehe Pfeil 4 in Fig. 1c). Dadurch, dass das obere Ende des Folienbeutels 1 durch die Backen 3a und 3b und das Röhrchen 2 verschlossen ist, wird der Folienbeutel 1 aufgeblasen und somit zumindest teilweise ausgeformt. Die beiden aufeinanderliegenden Seitenfolien 1a und 1b beabstanden sich jeweils voneinander und die gefaltete Bodenfolie 1c wird zumindest teilweise entfaltet (siehe Fig. 1c).Gaseous medium is now blown through the tube 2 into the foil bag 1 (see arrow 4 in FIG. 1c). Characterized in that the upper end of the film bag 1 is closed by the jaws 3a and 3b and the tube 2, the film bag 1 is inflated and thus at least partially formed. The two superposed side sheets 1a and 1b are spaced apart from each other and the folded bottom sheet 1c is at least partially unfolded (see Fig. 1c).
  • In dem so ausgeformten Folienbeutel 1 ist nun ein Hohlraum vorhanden, der mit flüssigem Füllgut gefüllt werden kann.In the thus-formed film bag 1, a cavity is now present, which can be filled with liquid filling material.
  • In Fig. 1d ist dargestellt, wie ein Röhrchen 6, welches identisch oder verschieden zu dem Röhrchen 2 sein kann, benutzt wird, um flüssiges Füllgut 5 in den Folienbeutel 1 einzufüllen (siehe Pfeil 7 in Fig. 1d).In Fig. 1d is shown how a tube 6, which may be identical or different from the tube 2, is used to fill liquid contents 5 in the foil bag 1 (see arrow 7 in Fig. 1d).
  • Wie zu sehen ist, füllt das flüssige Medium den geschaffenen Hohlraum in dem Folienbeutel 1 weitgehend aus.As can be seen, the liquid medium largely fills the created cavity in the foil bag 1.
  • Der so gefüllte Folienbeutel 1 wird anschließend mit Schweißbacken 8a und 8b an seinem oberen Ende verschweißt und so verschlossen (siehe Fig. 1e).The film bag 1 filled in this way is then welded at its upper end to the welding jaws 8a and 8b and thus closed (see FIG. 1e).
  • Durch das Einblasen eines desinfizierenden gasförmigen Mediums in den Folienbeutel 1, wie durch den Pfeil 4 in Fig. 1c angedeutet, wird das Innere des Folienbeutels 1 desinfiziert. Da der Folienbeutel 1 vor dem Einblasen selber leer ist (siehe Fig. 1b), erreicht das desinfizierende gasförmige Medium das gesamte Innere des Folienbeutels, so dass dieser zuverlässig in seinen gesamten inneren Bereich desinfiziert wird.By injecting a disinfectant gaseous medium into the film bag 1, as indicated by the arrow 4 in Fig. 1c, the interior of the film bag 1 is disinfected. Since the film bag 1 is empty before being injected (see FIG. 1 b), the disinfecting gaseous medium reaches the entire interior of the film bag, so that it is reliably disinfected into its entire inner area.
  • In einer besonderen Ausführungsform wird der Folienbeutel 1, nach dem er, wie in Fig. 1c dargestellt, zumindest teilweise ausgeformt und desinfiziert ist, anschließend evakuiert. Dadurch nimmt der erneut die Form an, wie sie in Fig. 1b dargestellt ist. Anschließend wird der Beutel erneut ausgeformt, so dass er erneut die Form annimmt, wie sie in Fig. 1c dargestellt ist. Der so ausgeformte und desinfizierte Folienbeutel 1 kann dann, wie in Fig. 1d dargestellt ist, befüllt werden.In a particular embodiment, the film bag 1, after which, as shown in Fig. 1c, it is at least partially formed and disinfected, then evacuated. This again assumes the shape as shown in Fig. 1b. Subsequently, the bag is reshaped so that it assumes the shape again, as shown in Fig. 1c. The thus formed and disinfected foil bag 1 can then, as shown in Fig. 1d, are filled.
  • Weiterhin ist es möglich, den Folienbeutel 1 mit dem Röhrchen 2, wie es in Fig. 1b dargestellt ist, zunächst zu evakuieren und so auch noch letzte Luftreste aus dem Beutelinneren zu entfernen. Anschließend kann dann mit dem Röhrchen 2, wie in Fig. 1c dargestellt, das Innere des Beutels mit dem desinfizierenden Gas gefüllt werden, so dass dessen Inneres desinfiziert wird. Durch das vorherige Evakuieren werden noch besser die inneren Falten des Folienbeutels durch das desinfizierende Medium erreicht und somit die desinfizierende Wirkung verbessert.Furthermore, it is possible to first evacuate the film bag 1 with the tube 2, as shown in FIG. 1b, and thus also remove any last air residues from the bag interior. Then, with the tube 2, as shown in Fig. 1c, the interior of the bag can be filled with the disinfecting gas, so that its interior is disinfected. By the previous evacuation, the inner folds of the foil bag are even better achieved by the disinfecting medium and thus improves the disinfecting effect.
  • Für das Evakuieren kann das selbe Röhrchen 2, wie für das Aufblasen, verwendet werden, es ist jedoch auch möglich, hierzu verschiedene Einrichtungen zu verwenden.For evacuation, the same tube 2 can be used as for inflation, but it is also possible to use different devices for this purpose.
  • In Fig. 2 ist schematisch eine Vorrichtung zum Verfüllen von flexiblen Folienbeuteln dargestellt.In Fig. 2, a device for filling flexible film bags is shown schematically.
  • Die Folienbeutel können in Richtung 13 durch einen nicht dargestellten Förderer gefördert werden. Hierbei sind die Folienbeutel hängend an ihrem oberen Ende gehalten.The foil bags can be conveyed in the direction 13 by a conveyor, not shown. Here, the foil bags are suspended hanging at its upper end.
  • In einer ersten Station 9 können die Folienbeutel 1 von dem Förderer aufgenommen werden.In a first station 9, the foil pouches 1 can be picked up by the conveyor.
  • In einer Ausformeinrichtung 10 werden die Folienbeutel durch das Röhrchen 2 mit dem gasförmigen Medium aufgeblasen und so ausgeformt.In a shaping device 10, the film bags are inflated through the tube 2 with the gaseous medium and thus formed.
  • Stromab der Ausformeinrichtung 10 ist eine Fülleinrichtung 11 angeordnet, mit der die Folienbeutel 1 befüllt werden können.Downstream of the molding device 10, a filling device 11 is arranged, with which the film bag 1 can be filled.
  • Stromab der Fülleinrichtung 11 ist eine Verschließstation 12 vorgesehen, mit der Folienbeutel verschlossen werden können.Downstream of the filling device 11, a closing station 12 is provided, with which foil bags can be closed.
  • Stromab der Fülleinrichtung 12 kann eine Kühleinrichtung oder eine Entnahmeeinrichtung zum Entnehmen der Folienbeutel 1 aus dem Förderer vorgesehen sein.Downstream of the filling device 12 may be provided a cooling device or a removal device for removing the foil bag 1 from the conveyor.
  • Ausführungsformen der Ausformeinrichtung 10 sind in Fig. 3 dargestellt.Embodiments of the molding device 10 are shown in FIG.
  • Fig. 3a zeigt ein Folienbeutel 1 zusammen mit dem Röhrchen 2. In das Röhrchen 2 kann durch ein Ventil 14 Ozon und ggf. Wasserstoffperoxid oder ähnliches zugeführt werden. Das Ventil 14 ist hierbei in einer Zuleitung zu dem Röhrchen 2 angeordnet. Auf diese Weise kann Luft als Trägergas mit einem Medium, das die desinfizierende Wirkung hervorruft, vermischt werden.Fig. 3a shows a foil bag 1 together with the tube 2. In the tube 2 can be fed through a valve 14 ozone and optionally hydrogen peroxide or the like. The valve 14 is in this case arranged in a feed line to the tube 2. In this way, air can be mixed as a carrier gas with a medium that causes the disinfecting effect.
  • In Fig. 3b ist eine Einrichtung 15 dargestellt, mit der eine desinfizierende Wirkung des gasförmigen Mediums erreicht werden kann.In Fig. 3b, a device 15 is shown with which a disinfecting effect of the gaseous medium can be achieved.
  • Dies kann eine Einrichtung sein, die beispielsweise durch Bestrahlung mit UV-Licht Ozon erzeugt, so dass das gasförmige Medium durch das Ozon seine desinfizierende Wirkung erhält. Zusätzlich kann eine Heizeinrichtung vorgesehen sein, die das gasförmige Medium aufheizt.This can be a device which generates ozone, for example, by irradiation with UV light, so that the gaseous medium is disinfected by the ozone. In addition, a heater may be provided which heats the gaseous medium.
  • Zwischen der Station 9 und der Ausformstation 10 kann auch eine zusätzliche Evakuierstation vorgesehen sein, mit der das Innere des Folienbeutels 1 evakuiert werden kann. Diese Evakuiermöglichkeit kann jedoch auch in die Ausformeinrichtung 10 integriert sein, was bedeutet, dass das Evakuieren durch das Röhrchen 2 möglich ist. Dazu ist an das Röhrchen 2 auf dem geräteseitigen Ende eine entsprechende Vakuumpumpe oder ähnliches angeschlossen bzw. anschließbar.Between the station 9 and the forming station 10, an additional evacuation station can be provided, with which the interior of the film bag 1 can be evacuated. However, this Evakuiermöglichkeit can also be integrated into the Ausformeinrichtung 10, which means that the evacuation through the tube 2 is possible. For this purpose, a corresponding vacuum pump or the like is connected or connectable to the tube 2 on the device-side end.
  • Eine Evakuiereinrichtung kann auch zwischen der Ausformeinrichtung 10 und der Fülleinrichtung 11 angeordnet sein.An evacuation device can also be arranged between the molding device 10 and the filling device 11.
  • Hierbei dient das Evakuieren dann zum Entfernen des gasförmigen Mediums mit der desinfizierenden Wirkung. Nach dieser zwischengeschalteten Evakuiereinrichtung und der Fülleinrichtung 11 ist dann vorteilhafterweise eine weitere Ausformeinrichtung vorgesehen.Here, the evacuation then serves to remove the gaseous medium with the disinfecting effect. After this intermediate Evakuiereinrichtung and the filling device 11 is then advantageously provided a further Ausformeinrichtung.
