BERICAP, a worldwide operating manufacturer of plastic closures, will, as in previous years, be exhibiting at the BRAU Beviale 2008.
BERICAP’s main focus will be the presentation of new closures and neck finish solutions aiming to reduce the consumption of non-renewable resources and in consequence to reduce the green house gas emissions (carbon footprint), but also offering cost savings to its customers by reducing weight.
BERICAP has enhanced its SuperShorty® portfolio suitable to PCO 1881 and has extended the SuperShorty® range. The venting capacity of the SuperShorty® design has been enlarged to ensure safe venting on 2,5-l-bottles filled with up to 4,5 Vol%CO2. All SuperShorty® variants are equipped with the well-proven DoubleSeal™ system for safe sealing also under hot climate conditions. In addition SuperShorty® has been perfected to ensure proper rinsing after wet decontamination in aseptic filling lines. The SuperShorty® product line has been extended by SuperShorty® ECO, a light weight solution for high carbonated beverages and a SuperShorty® variant for hotfill application.
A change from PCO 1810 to PCO 1881 reduces the weight of the entire package. In case of a CSD package the neck weight is reduced from 5,05 g to 3,82 g. The total weight saving adds up to more than 2,5 g for neck and closure.
Another fair’s highlight being presented will be BERICAP’s sports closure variants. PUSH-PULL 28mm, equipped with anti-sabotage feature, is enhanced for aseptic filling and hotfill application for PCO 1810 and PCO 1881 neck. A 38mm PUSH-PULL version is available for aseptic filling.
THUMB’UP®, the first sports cap combining one hand opening, comfort to drink and high flow rate is available as light weight version for the light weight neck 26 mm and 29/25 mm, both being used mainly for water application. THUMB’UP® 38 mm for 2 and 3-start neck will suit aseptic application.
Looking forward to meeting you at the BERICAP booth at the BRAU Beviale 2008, Hall 4, Stand 513/515.
