IMA C56C Tea or Coffee Bag In a Pouch Single Serve Packing Machine With Nitrogen Purge


Equipment Description

IMA C56C Bag In a Pouch Single Serve Tea Bag Machine

Was told by the seller that the machine is in need of repair.

From The OEM Brochure
The following information is taken from the IMA C56 Sales Brochure and covers the items that are not on a C55 machine:

The Heat Sealed Outer Envelope/Pouch

The problems to be faced in the packaging of flavoured and good quality tea blends, aromatic herbs or coffee are basically caused by the need to protect efficaciously the integrity and aroma of the product.
For this reason it is necessary to overwrap the filter bag with an entirely airtight protection, which stops the aroma spreading out of the package, and also prevents a possible inlet of humidity to the inside which could affect the product itself.
The IMA C56 is the right solution to these problems.
Thanks to the filter bag characteristics it has been possible to reach another solution resulting in a very functional and aesthetically tasteful product: the IMA C56 heat sealed outer envelope.
The filter bag is overwrapped in two heat sealable paper sheets, which are further sealed on four sides, resulting in a completely waterproof and airtight package.

Easy to Open:

To open the IMA C56 heatsealed outer envelope, is an easy and quick operation: it is sufficient to tear the upper seal by means of the appropriate cut out notch and extract the filter bag contained in the outer envelope. [Film is laser etched instead of using the cut out notch]
Once the envelope has been opened, it is then possible to sense the aroma and fragrance of the product, perfectly protected until the moment you wish to use it.

The Gas Flushing:

In order to face the problem relevant to the perfect preservation of certain products packed into outer envelopes, such as aromatic herbs or coffee, it is possible to fit on the IMA C56 machine a system to force the insertion of inert gas, into each single envelope, during final closing station. The flushing of inert gas, e.g. nitrogen, determines for each single bag, a considerable reduction in oxygen residues, avoiding the natural oxidization of the product.

This C56 machine has the nitrogen flushing system installed. The C56 machine still forms, fills, and seals the coffee singles into the carton which leaves the machine and packaged into cases to be shipped out.
