Tea bag packaging

The CT10 ensures optimum production capacity for tetrahedral tea bags, ideally suited to long-leaf tea and herbs. Integrating a cartoning unit, the CT10 completes the packaging process without occupying excessive floor space.

The CT10 ensures optimum production capacity for tetrahedral tea bags, ideally suited to long-leaf tea and herbs. Integrating a cartoning unit, the CT10 completes the packaging process without occupying excessive floor space.

Shaping tea naturally

The CT10 processes tetrahedral tea bags with a string and tag at a speed of 300 bags/minute. Thanks to their shape and stability, such bags are ideal for long-leaf products which consequently have more room to move and infuse for a better brew.

A specially designed volumetric rotating doser reduces fragmentation to a minimum so as to preserve the original properties of the product.

Equipped with a dedicated cartoning attachment, the CT10 packs the tea bags into stylish, open and re-closable caddy style cartons. Once closed, carton weight is checked and automatic dose regulation is performed.

All main machine stations incorporate specific product control devices for maximum product quality. Automatic rejection procedures enable non-stop processing maintaining production efficiency at the highest level.

CT10 Highlights

1.
High production speed: up to 300 bags/minute.
2.
Ultrasonic sealing technology for woven (PET) and non-woven (PET/PLA) materials.
3.
Volumetric rotating doser reduces fragmentation of long leaf tea and herbs (coarse cut).
4.
Forced filling mechanism to accelerate process and significantly enhance productivity.
5.
Rapid cleaning of volumetric doser reduces changeover times from one product to the next.
6.
Single bag rejection to maximise production efficiency and quality.
7.
Integrated carton unit for re-closable caddy cartons, including checkweighing unit with automatic dose regulator.
8.
No use of expensive pre-assembled materials. Filter bag material, cotton thread and tags are assembled directly on the machine for significant savings.
Gentle product handling is key to preserving product quality. The special volumetric rotating doser protects coarse-cut leaves with fragments up to 10 mm, including blossoms and flower parts. Forced product ejection into bag ensures high processing speeds.
