Sports closures that are suitable for aseptic filling often have low flow rates and require complex treatment in the filling and closing process.
Bericap claims the Push Pull Next Generation changes that thanks to its new design.
The caps and closures specialist claims its new sports cap is suitable for aseptic filling with both wet and dry decontamination while also offering high flow fates that enable consumers to get more drink from each sip.
Suitable for still and medium carbonated drinks the new three-piece cap also uses the Bericap DoubleSeal sealing technology.
The market introduction of the new cap is planned for the first three months of this year. It will be suitable for the standard neck PCO 1810, with an extension in the pipeline that fits PCO 1881 necks.
Bericap spokesperson Dorothea Diehl said the company had to update its own production equipment to produce the Push Pull Next Generation cap.
Because the cap has to secure the integrity of aseptically filled drinks, Bericap has integrated different, automatic test units at different phases of its production process.
Bericap is one of the biggest manufacturers of caps and closures in the world with 20 factories spread across 18 countries.
