Milk producer needed the right stretch film for their beverage industry application

In the beverage industry, products are constantly changing temperatures. The temperature swings aren't good for more stretch film materials. Fortunately with Air-Flow Stretch Wrap, stretch film for the beverage industry provides significant cost savings.

Problem

Individual cartons were stacked into pallet loads while the cream was still between 20c - 30c. They were then wrapped using a regular stretch film and placed into a blast chiller (pictured above). Two hours later, once the cream had fallen to less than 5c, the load was moved, the stretch film removed and the individual cartons shrink wrapped into multiple product units. Unfortunately, due to this process, the product then needed to be placed back into the chiller in order to cool it down again. Only when the products temperature was back below 5c was it ready to once again be wrapped in stretch film so that it could finally be dispatched.
