While syrups are predominantly cold-filled, fillers of most products within the JETS market (pure juices & nectars, fruit drinks, energy & sports drinks and RTD teas) use aseptic as well as hot filling processes. The closure program for aseptic filling including high pressure processing contains flat caps as well as different types of sports caps (PushPull and ThumbUp) in numerous variants and for different neck types.
Carbonated Soft Drinks (CSD) & Carbonated Water need special handling. While unavoidable damage to PET bottle necks can occur accidentally, even small scratches on the inside bore seal or dents on the outside surface of the neck are likely to endanger product quality.
The market for Home & Office Delivery (HOD) of water has been growing continuously in recent years. While employers and home consumers alike appreciate the comfort, suppliers still struggle with poor neck quality and therefore leaking bottles, counterfeits, and high-weight solutions.
Hot filling processes as commonly used in the JETS (Juices, Energy Drinks, Teas and Syrups) market, are a particular challenge for packages and closures. Being filled at a temperature of +85-88°C, inverted for closure and headspace pasteurization and finally cooled down to < 40°C, the closures need to withstand hydrostatic bottle contraction and guarantee a tight seal during the entire hot filling process.
Markets with broad product variety need closure solutions which offer the same diversity. The BERICAP closure program for JETS (Juices, Energy Drinks, Teas and Syrups) includes solutions for the whole product range, applicable to both hot fill and aseptic filling processes. We offer flat caps as well as sports caps (e.g. PushPull and ThumbUp) in different diameters.
Doing things straightforwardly means putting the focus on the product as a whole. This applies notably to products where consumer convenience determines success or failure. Sports caps have gained enormously in importance, and they have to satisfy the highest standards in terms of convenience.
Still Mineral Water is life and needs specific protection. A good reason to offer the best closure solutions for consumer packs, large containers from 3-10 ltr and for home-and-office-delivery (HOD) 20 ltr containers, screw caps and sports caps for all common neck finishes. Most of our closures allow individual designs or printing options and are equipped with well-performing tamper evidence bands.
