A bag-in-box is a type of container for a storage and transportation of liquids. It consists of a strong plastic bag usually made up of several layers of metalized film, or other plastics, seated inside a corrugated fiberboard box.
The bag is supplied to the filler as an empty pre-made bag. The filler then generally removes the tap, fills the bag, and replaces the tap. The bags are available as singles for semi-automatic machines as web bags, where the bags have perforations between each one.
These are used on automated filling systems where the bag is separated on line either before the bag is automatically filled. Depending on the end use, there are a number of options that can be used on the bag instead of the tap.
The bags can be filled from chilled product temperatures up to 85° Celsius. Bag-in-box packaging can be made using form seal fill (FSF) technology; where the bags are manufactured on-line from reels of film, then the FlexTap is inserted; then filled on integral rotary head filler. This technology is currently limited to the packing of wine products.
