Vertical packaging machine for fluid industry

VHVP offers the best solutions for your fluids business

As a producer in the food industry, you know better than anyone that the standards in this sector are extremely high: efficiency and maximum uptime are vital. In addition, the total cost of ownership is an increasingly decisive factor when purchasing a new packaging machine. VH Vertical Packaging specialises in the development, construction, installation and maintenance of sustainable packaging machines for packaging anything in liquid form, with or without solid constituents. The Fluids sector therefore covers a broad range. These can be soups, sauces, cold packs and soap.

The production and packaging of fluid products are subject to very strict regulations regarding quality and hygiene. VHVP developed the VH Fluid especially for this market segment. A machine that meets your requirements perfectly, because we know the specifications of vertical packaging in your industry through and through. You can always count on our expert advice and, where required, we offer customisation according to your specific needs and specifications. Large-scale packaging is often Business-to-Business oriented, while small-scale packaging is generally consumer oriented.

Familiar with the ins and outs of your industry

Fluids can create many bottlenecks and make high demands on your machine

The option to use the machine for different types of liquid must be available. Processors all face the following bottlenecks.

  • • A wet environment causes:
    – High friction of the film on the packer, forming tube, etc., which can cause slippage or ripped bags
    – Damage to the packers due to aggressive cleaning agents
  • Mainly batch oriented
  • Hot filled and cold filled
  • Leaky bags result in a great deal of contamination during production
  • There should not be too much air in the pack, air expulsion is necessary
  • The speed for small packaging is high, and the packers must also be able to handle large packaging. Because of this, a “large model” of machine should be chosen.
  • Many complexities with easy opening of the laminate pouches
  • A lot of cleaning is required
  • High static load

With VH Fluid you are responding to changing market demands

It is important to be able to respond quickly to the specific demands of consumers. When the market demand is constantly changing, the ability to be flexible and able to adapt quickly is highly desirable. With VH Fluid, you are always well prepared for these changes: a smooth transition between different types of packaging, resealable or not, etc. ensures a great deal of flexibility and continuity.

Overview of practical applications

  • Sealing system: heat seal system with easy opening options
    – Seal interruption
    – Seal interruption with tear-off edge
  • Static discharge
  • Required sealing pressure
  • TWIN tube version for high speed for small packages
  • Fittment integration for sprouts

Heatseal system

Together with the correct seal jaw pressure, sealing bars ensure that packaging is leak proof. This system ensures that packaging is always properly sealed, even in the event of seal contamination. Where there is a lot of product overfill on an intermittent application, a collection clamp is used: this closes the packaging before sealing. All overfill is collected.


  • Machines are fitted with a top plate which also serves as a support for the dosing unit
  • Lance filling station can be changed easily
  • Entire pump is detachable


For optimal operation of the line. There are often several lines that are served by one operator. Visual display of signals, such as pre-notification for end of film roll, are extremely practical and optimise efficiency.

Optimal support with MyCenturion

Packaging machine with a high uptime

MyCenturion from VH Vertical Packaging enables you to continuously monitor the performance of your Centurion packaging machine. Based on reports received from the control system on, for example, film standstill or film changeovers, continual improvements which lead to higher efficiency can be implemented. This system also allows for preventive maintenance to be predicted extremely efficiently, thereby keeping downtime and malfunctions to a minimum. Routine maintenance is always transparent, so that wearing parts can be replaced in good time.

Basic functionalities

We record all basic functions in a so-called machine master card. This basic data can be different for each machine. Recordings are subdivided into different main groups:

  • Basic information such as heights, line integration, peripherals and standard options
  • Software versions with accompanying custom-made updates
  • Mechanical issues, both standard modifications and custom-made modifications
  • Format and funnel information (including PDF film drawing)
  • Recording the documentation of each master card. Such as layout, e-scheme, situational photos, CE declaration (generator)

Objectives of My Centurion

– Higher uptime of packaging machines
– Highest possible output of packaging machines
– Optimal operator convenience
– Effective guidance from VHVP

Extra functionalities

– Tracking mechanical improvements

MyCenturion remote communication

Various communication types are supported by VH Centurion: OPC UA, MQTT, VNC Server and Mail Server.


Open platform communications (OPC) (UA). An external MES system collects data from the machine. OPC UA cannot be used in combination with MQTT.


MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT). MQTT can currently only be used to send data to MyCenturion.

VNC Server

Virtual Network Computing (VNC). VNC Server can be used to take over screens from other machines and peripherals, on condition that a VNC Server is running on the remote machine.

Mail Server

The machine will forward the data to the appropriate email address. An events list can be included.
