Meeting the unique requirements of hot or aseptic filling lines
The JETS (juices, energy drinks, teas and syrups) and functional drinks markets have increasingly complex and demanding requirements for packaging solutions, filling processes, and sustainability. The extensive BERICAP closures program solves our customers’ challenge by offering a comprehensive range of sophisticated closures that ensure product integrity and operational excellence without sacrificing consumer convenience.
We accompany you through the process of selecting and integrating the ideal closure for your product, balancing significant closure weight savings while maintaining excellent gripping properties for easy opening and re-closing. The BERICAP bore seal design guarantees product freshness and integrity.
We offer a wide variety of diameters for:
- Flat caps standard TE band (non-tethered or “tether-prepared”)
- ClipAside Tethered caps
- Sports caps
Ensuring safe closure application
Full consumer protection
Safe Venting keeps pressure build-up inside the bottle below a safe 2-bar threshold through a venting feature in the closure’s sealing area. By managing the pressure, it protects the consumer from the so-called “missiling effect” – a familiar hazard with certain beverages that have a tendency to ferment when being opened and re-closed and especially when additionally being stored at room temperature exposed to light.
Our venting technology eliminates this issue while still providing a secure seal.
Closure solutions that meet special filling requirements
Aseptic filling and hot filling
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.
