An aseptic carbonator is also installed which adds carbonation to the sterile product after it has been de-aerated and pasteurized. Future plans for the lines include the ability to process plant-based milks made from soy or oats. For this, IDS Borjomi International will use a homogenizer from Krones subsidiary HST that can treat the products at both the aseptic and non-aseptic ends of the flash pasteurizer. In addition, the line will be equipped with a VarioSpin de-aerator and a VarioStore aseptic buffer tank.
Krones will also deliver a syrup room with CIP system at both locations. In the Moscow plant, the room will include a sugar dissolver for granulated sugar, a protein-dissolving station, a powder-dissolving station, a barrel emptying system, and blending tanks. In Morshyn, glucose-fructose syrup will be used instead of granulated sugar.
