Best in class production efficiency
The combination of the Schur®Star Concept and the Micvac™ technology enables the producer to market unique products with a shelf life of 40-60 days.
The flexible packaging machine offers manual, semi-, or fully automatic filling. Together with the concept of premade bags, a consistent and effective filling and sealing process is the result. By adding the unique Micvac™ in-bag cooking and pasteurisation technology, the combined process brings superior ready-to-eat foods.
The result is one continuous production flow, from filling of the bags, over preparation of the ingredients to the final product, ready for distribution. A highly efficient production that requires low care and low labour.
The valve is the core
The valve is the core of the Micvac™ process and makes it possible to have a fully cooked, pasteurised, and vacuum-packed product in approx. 7 minutes.
During the pasteurisation process in the microwave tunnel, the pressure in the bag will open the valve to release steam and with it oxygen molecules. After 5-10 minutes, the food is cooked and pasteurised. When cooled, the valve closes, the steam condenses, and a natural vacuum is the result.
Long shelf life brings several benefits
The Micvac™ technology allows you to produce a pasteurised, safe product with a shelf life of 40-60 days, bringing several producer benefits:
The unique in-bag cooking and pasteurisation technology preserves not only vitamins, but also flavour, texture, and colours of the meal
The Schur®Star Packaging Machine offers effortless bagging, whether manual, semi- or fully automatic
The large opening in the total width of the Schur®Star bag ensures a precise and consistent bagging process, reducing product spillage and downtime
From raw ingredients to fully cooked, pasteurised, and vacuum-packed ready-to-eat foods in approx. 7 minutes
40 to 60 days' shelf life allows for longer production batches, a smoother production flow and more efficient logistics
When the ready-to-eat foods are adeaquately heated in the microwave, the valve will produce a whistle, indicating that the meal is ready to serve
