Over the years, pouches have become increasingly popular within the food and beverage industry. Snacking and on-the-go, single-serve food and drink packaging are becoming more and more popular in our society today. According to the MarketsandMarkets Research Firm, because of the increasing demand for lightweight and compact packaging, the pouch market reached $42.13 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow roughly 5% each year after. From juice pouches and bags of pretzels, to dog food and alcoholic beverages, lightweight pouches are becoming the preferred packaging solution for many food and beverage manufacturers because of their lower shipping costs. And because pouches come in all different shapes and sizes, each drying application requires its own unique and custom-engineered solution.

Paxton Products offers a variety of solutions that can be integrated into your current pouch drying system to improve your overall drying performance and the quality of your pouches. Our team of Application Engineers will work alongside you to determine how and where Paxton Products can help improve your pouch drying operations. The process starts with defining your conveyor speed, the orientation of pouches as they travel down the conveyor, single- or multi-lane, pouch size, position of gusset(s), and much more. Paxton Products does not offer a pouch hold-down mechanism. The end user would be responsible for anchoring the pouches throughout the drying process.
