The brand new EC15 is the first double chamber teabag packaging machine by IMA Maisa. Simple and compact solution for double chamber knotted teabags.

Simply a double chamber.

The EC15 filter bag is based on a traditional non heatsealable double chamber bag and guarantees optimum infusion efficiency enabling the natural tea aroma to flow out.

No metal staple or additional packaging materials are required to fix the bag to the tag and the cotton thread. Fixing is achieved   by two simple knots – one to fix the cotton thread to the filter bag head and the other to fix the cotton thread to the tag. This innovative feature avoids the presence of metals during infusion, whilst guaranteeing, at the same time, a discerning and functional filter bag.

The EC15 flexibility allows the production of different filter bag sizes suitable to respond to dedicated market trends. A variety of packaging materials can be used on the EC15 for the production of heatsealed outer envelopes, such as cellophane, oriented polypropylene (OPP), paper PE, paper Alu Foil.
