The fully integrated Dynamic Liner System (DLS) is PerfoTec’s new technology that manufactures modified atmosphere liner bags, for bulk packaging, at source. Fresh produce growers and packers can now produce liner bags on location, with the most suitable permeability for their produce at that moment. The cost savings of producing locally are estimated to be up to 25%, or more compared to imported MAP liner bags.
The longer shelf life achieved with these customized MAP liner bags facilitates longer transport and storage options, and drives reduced waste and more sales. The “Just in Time” local production eliminates long lead times and wasted liner bag stocks that are old or inadequate, thereby resulting in significant time and cost savings for the growers and packers.
PerfoTec’s high precision online laser perforation system is an integral part of the DLS. The patented closed-loop-feedback-camera-system inspects each hole, for quality control purposes, and also to ensure the accuracy of the Oxygen Transmission Rate (OTR) of each liner bag. Its software system can store up to 200 programs for easy operator selection.
PerfoTec’s Dynamic Liner System (DLS) can use multiple raw materials for the film tube, to make the liner bags. Including ones that are locally sourced. They can be produced on demand, with no lead time, and in the right size and specifications to match the produce’s modified atmosphere characteristics needed at that moment.
PerfoTec’s Film is a great option to use in combination with the DLS because it is biodegradable, compostable and has outstanding HMVTR and C02TR properties. The additional shelf life extension achieved using the PerfoTec Film, combined with the PerfoTec laser perforation system on the DLS, can reach up to double the normal shelf life beyond what is achieved with standard MAP liner bags.
It is recommended to use the DLS in combination with PerfoTec’s Fast Respiration Meter (FRM) to measure the respiration rate of fresh produce and thereby determine the optimal Oxygen Transmission Rate required for the liner bags. This information is used in combination with the PerfoTec software and laser, incorporated in the DLS, to produce the most precise MAP liner bags.
The PerfoTec Team of engineers and customer support technical specialists offer training and support around the globe, to optimize the use and success of this new bulk packaging technology.
PerfoTec’s mission to help growers, packers and retailers reduce food waste and maximize shelf life in a natural way, across the full produce supply chain, is now complete.
