Lower Production Costs and Environmental Impact with Aseptic Filling
- Output – 400 to 1200 bpm
- Type – isolator based with inline bottles and cap sterilization
- Liquid metering methods – net weight with auto CIP and SIP
- Products – low acid and high acid beverages (non-carbonated and carbonated)
- Containers and Caps – 100 ml to 3500 ml bottles, any shape, multiple caps sizes
- Capper – Servo (aseptic screw cap)
Aseptic Filling Systems differ from conventional filling systems by keeping the entire process in an aseptic chamber. This reduces the risk of contamination in your products. It also uses ambient fill temperature that allow for the use of thinner containers resulting in lower environmental impact and production costs. The product is filled in an aseptic chamber, in turn, extending the product shelf life and eliminating the need for refrigeration therefore not requiring cold distribution channels.
Those are benefits of aseptic filling systems, but why choose Shibuya’s?
- To date, we have manufactured and installed over 150 Aseptic Filling Systems worldwide.
- There has been no spoilage detected in the over 15 billion bottles produced on Shibuya’s Aseptic Filling Systems.
- Our system can maintain an aseptic environment inside the chambers for up to 156 consecutive hours and has a fully automated CIP/SIP of the product pathway as well as automatic chamber/equipment cleaning and sterilization.
- We have had multiple successful FDA installations and shorter installation, commissioning and validation periods.

Electron Beam Rotary Filler
We have also produced the world’s first Aseptic Electron Beam Rotary Filler System for PET bottles. The Electron Beam technology is a proven innovation and provides our customers with the option to eliminate chemical sterilants and reduce water consumption; therefore increasing cost savings while reducing environmental impact.
What is a CIP system?
The CIP system automatically cleans the inside of the filler bowl and filling valves after each run or when there is a size change. If a cleaning/sterilizing tank or steam tube is connected to this system, chemical cleaning or high temperature sterilization can be achieved.
Bottle Neck Transfer System
Features: Since the transfer system is designed to grip the bottleneck, which is of a common size with other PET/HDPE bottles, a variety of sizes can be run without the need for new attachments. Additionally new products can be introduced without the need, in most cases, for new transfer attachments. Attachments including star wheels and main guide required for conventional bottle transfer are no longer needed, reducing size change times. The neck grip wheel design ensures stable transfer during high-speed operation and eliminates liquid splash. The transfer path is simplified to facilitate easy maintenance. The space required for storing attachments is greatly reduced compared with conventional bottle handling systems; this becomes more significant as the number of bottles sizes increases.
This system has been developed to transfer PET/HDPE bottles at high speed by gripping the bottleneck. This simplified transfer system provides both stable operation combined with size and change-over time savings, Shibuya will apply this concept to the total bottling system from bottle-feeding to product discharge.
