TORR Industries’ technologically superior bag filling equipment continues to be the preferred bag filler choice as Delicato Family Wines, producer of power brand Bota Box, expand their production capacity. Delicato is increasing BIB capacity at its 250,000 sq ft Manteca, CA facility with 15 high output TORR bag fillers installed and three more on order.
In addition to production line speeds of up to 45 packs per minute from the (3) TORR fillers per line, the patent pending fill head technology plays a critical role in optimizing shelf-life and flavor retention of the company’s premium, award winning 3-liter Bota Box and 1.5-liter Bota Brick labels.
The talented team at TORR have 15+ years of hands-on experience with bag-in-box applications at major California wineries. TORR’s deep understanding of the operational issues with bag filling machines have allowed the company to develop the most advanced wine bag fillers and a proven system designed to minimize oxygen pickup through the fill process.
Excessive oxygen pickup is wine’s mortal enemy as it gradually impacts taste and reduces the time frame in which a wine’s optimum flavor profile may be experienced by the consumer. To help minimize the influence of oxygen during the bag filling process, TORR’s fill technology allows vacuum and nitrogen purge of bags resulting in dissolved oxygen (DO) pickup of less than 0.3 ppm through the filling process and oxygen in the headspace of less than 2% that combined, provide very low total package oxygen (TPO).
In addition to wine, other oxygen sensitive products packed in bag-in-box format including olive oil, are benefitting from TORR filling technology.
