Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0897864A2] A process and aseptic machine discharge two different products through two outlet tubes (31) linked to a common head (28) in which the products remain separate. During filling, the tubs (4) are held in tray openings and are lifted by a jack (57) and clamp (5) and are presented to the discharge head. As the tub is filled, the jack lowers the tub, which is automatically ejected when filled and is replaced by an empty tub. The tub may be rotated between filling sequences to expose a second chamber to a discharging product.
