Title
(EN) A PACKAGING APPARATUS FOR FORMING SEALED PACKAGES
(FR) APPAREIL DE CONDITIONNEMENT POUR FORMER DES EMBALLAGES SCELLÉS
Abstract
(EN)
There is described a packaging apparatus (1) for forming a plurality of sealed packages (2) from a tube (3) of a web of packaging material (4) which is continuously filled with a pourable product. The packaging apparatus comprises a delimiting element (37) arranged, in use, within the tube (3) and being designed to divide the tube (3), in use, into a first space (38) and a second space (39). The packaging apparatus (1) also comprises a sterile gas supply device (43) for pressurizing the isolation chamber and the second space (39) by means of a respectively a first flow of sterile gas and a second flow of sterile gas.

L'invention concerne un appareil de conditionnement (1) permettant de former une pluralité d'emballages scellés (2) à partir d'un tube (3) d'une bande de matériau de conditionnement (4) qui est rempli en continu d'un produit à écoulement libre. L'appareil de conditionnement comprend en outre un élément de délimitation (37) disposé, en utilisation, dans le tube (3) et conçu pour diviser le tube (3), en utilisation, en un premier espace (38) et un second espace (39). L'appareil de conditionnement (1) comprend également un dispositif d'alimentation en gaz stérile (43) pour mettre sous pression la chambre d'isolation et le second espace (39) au moyen d'un premier flux de gaz stérile et d'un second flux de gaz stérile.
