Many products in the JETS category are filled hot or on aseptic filling lines, which implies special requirements on the closure design and specifications. This prevents complications in the sterilization process, such as hidden chambers or open spaces that create a risk of residual contamination. During the hot filling process the closures must withstand hydrostatic bottle expansion and inflation to guarantee tightness.
Most filling lines also include high pressure processing which our closure program is suitable for.
BERICAP’s closure program for dry and wet aseptic filling includes flat caps as well as different types of sports caps (e.g. PushPull, ThumbUp). All these closures are available in numerous options and for different neck types.
BERICAP’s slitted TE bands offer significant advantages in comparison with molded bands, especially when using tethered caps; molded TE bands have non-regular and open areas which make it more difficult to sterilize caps in wet aseptic filling processes.
