Rapak North America―a business unit of DS Smith, Plastics Division―announced the launch of its newly redesigned and NSF approved PCSS+ line side connector for Bag-in-Box applications. This makes the PCSS+ the only NSF approved connecting system for PCSS and Encore fitments in the industry.
After a year of extensive product testing and material analysis, Rapak’s PCSS+ beverage connector achieved compliance with NSF/ANSI Standard 18. This standard establishes food protection and sanitation requirements for the materials, design, construction, and performance of food and beverage dispensing equipment. Achieving this certification assures that the PCSS+ connector has food safe components that can easily be cleaned and sanitized.
Founded in 1944, NSF International, or the National Sanitation Foundation, is known for its high standard of quality, inspection and certification of products and materials intended to come into contact with consumable food or water.
Rapak will showcase the PCSS+ NSF connector at the upcoming International Beverage Dispensing Equipment Association (IBDEA) conference, to be held March 9—13 in Orlando, Florida.
