Stérilisation par lumière pulsée


Does pulsed-light packaging sterilization apply to your products?

From water to yoghurt, juices or beer, pulsed-light packaging sterilization is suitable for a wide range of products.


Pulsed light is already used by majors players in the beverages market  as an efficient and reliable solution for the packaging sterilization on:

  • Bottled water: to reduce or remove ozone;
  • Sensitive drinks: to sterilize without chemicals or water;
  • Still drinks: to reduce the amount of preservatives;
  • Hot-filled drinks: to simplify the process and to lighten the preform (eliminate the need to turn the bottles upside down to ensure cap decontamination by heat);
  • Carbonated drinks and wine: to maintain the stability when carbonation or alcohol levels are not sufficient and to maintain the quality and taste of the product (no residue).


Fresh dairy products are sensitive environments which are subject to microbiological spoilage which prompts packers to decontaminate the packaging before filling.

Claranor offers in-line sterilization equipment for cups, caps and aluminum lids used in the processed dairy product packaging process on ultra-clean or ESL lines. The equipment is suitable for linear or rotary fillers.

The in-line technology fully complies with shelf life requirements for chilled products, and:

  • there is no risk of chemical residue in the packaging;
  • there is no need for outside treatment as required for gamma irradiation.

Claranor's solutions have been selected by major companies and leading equipment manufacturers worldwide for a wide range of beverages and dairy products: water, juice, beer, desserts, yoghurts, organic dairy products, drinking yoghurts, low fat margarine, cottage cheese…



Claranor designs equipment for the sterilization of caps, preforms, cups and lids used in the beverages and dairy markets. It is able to attain the decontamination levels demanded by producers while maintaining production rates (up to 90,000 bottles/hour, up to 60 strokes/mn).
High decontamination levels can be attained (from 3 log to up to 5 log on bacteria and mold). The decontamination reduction is certified by an external laboratory Fraunhofer. A full range of results is already available.

Caps and cups of all shapes and sizes can be treated, ranging from flats caps, sports caps and 5-gallon caps to yogurt cups, PLA cups and buckets. See FOCUS ON CAPS and CUPS
