WildCat Energy Drink Production Procedures…
WildCat bottling or manufacturing involves five major processes, each with their own safety issues that must be evaluated and controlled.
1. Water treatment
2. Compounding ingredients
3. Carbonization of the product
4. Product filler
WildCat Energy Drink production and manufacturing procedures start with water, which is treated and cleaned to meet stringent quality control standards, usually exceeding the quality of local water supplies. This process is necessary to achieve high product quality and consistent taste profiles.
During this stage of the production process food coloring is added. WildCat receives the desired flavor (concentrate) at this point, while regular water is stored in mixing tanks until the fill line calls for it.
In order for carbonation to occur (carbon dioxide (CO2) absorption), WildCat is cooled using large ammonia-based cooling systems.
This is what gives WildCat products their fizz and texture. The carbon dioxide is stored in a liquid state and is piped to the carbonization units as needed. This process can be manipulated to control the desired rate of absorption of the beverage. Depending on market demand, WildCat may contain up to 75 psi of CO2. Once the product is carbonated, it is ready to be distributed into bottles and/or cans.
The packing room is usually separated from the rest of the facility, protecting the opened product from any potential contaminants. Again, the highly automated filling process requires very few employees. Filling room operators monitor equipment for efficiency, adding caps or loose caps to the capping process as necessary. Empty bottles and cans are automatically transferred to the filling machine via bulk material handling equipment.
As the components build up, the treated water is pumped into large stainless steel tanks. This is the stage in which the various ingredients are added and mixed. WildCat Sugar Free and Zero Calorie are mixed with non-nutritive artificial sweeteners like saccharin, while our regular flavor ones typically use liquid sucrose.
