CSI Showcases Innovative Products at PACK EXPO

Lead In Photo Pack Expo 2016

Thousands of people dressed in suits, skirts, and business wear hustled toward the world’s largest processing and packaging show, PACK EXPO International 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. The show featured hundreds of booths, displaying equipment and technology, dedicated to superior packaging and processing. Many companies did not shy from the challenge to stand out. Giant fountains with laser lightshows highlighted some booths. Other companies showcased robots that could perform intelligent tasks quickly.

Creative Director, Amanda Williamson, created Central States Industrial’s booth to be a space where customers could be heard amidst the hustle of PACK EXPO. Engineers and experts stood by each product, taking time to explain the uses and benefits of each.

A large Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC), or tote, was mounted on one side of CSI’s booth, highlighting two pieces of equipment: the TrueClean ToteCleanerTM and the TrueClean ToteTilterTM. The ToteCleaner is the only hygienic system currently on the market. It is capable of removing product residue from 275 or 330-gallon totes, and could be seen in motion at the display, vigorously cleaning the tote from within. The ToteTilter provides a safer work environment by preventing product from being flushed out and helping workers avoid dangerous situations that occur from having to manually tilt totes.

A Compact CIP System stood in the other corner, shining brightly with CSI’s brand displayed in bright blue on the front. This small system provides all the needed clean-in-place processes in one mobile unit. The system is designed for cleaning tanks, process equipment, and associated lines that cannot be efficiently or cost-effectively serviced by a larger CIP system.

Lastly, CSI’s booth featured an array of different sanitary valves, many of which were original and patented inventions designed to provide the cleanest and most effective service.

Mark Cook, CEO at CSI, said the exhibition is "a good time to connect faces with names. It gives established and new customers the opportunity to meet CSI people and see the product firsthand."
