The market introduction of BERICAP SuperShorty® is progressing. After the conversion of beer in PET from PCO 1810 to PCO 1881 in Germany, SuperShorty® has been introduced for aseptic filling in China and for carbonated drinks in Europe. With in the next months BERICAP will increase its capacity for SuperShorty® to more than 5 billon units.
BERICAP has enhanced its SuperShorty® portfolio suitable to PCO 1881. 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. Safe venting means that the risk of blow-off has been reduced drastically also for cases when consumers unscrew the closure with excessive speed. 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.
A change from PCO1810 to PCO 1881 reduces also 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 g for neck and closure. At the same time such a reduction in resin supports all efforts to save non-renewable resources and to reduce the output of CO2 (Carbon Footprint).
The SuperShorty® closure range consists of the SuperShorty® Crown, mainly used by beer fillers, the SuperShorty® CSD used by bottlers of carbonated drinks, the SuperShorty® Eco as a low weight alternative to SuperShorty® CSD for carbonated water and carbonated drinks and the SuperShorty® Still for still drinks.
There is also a SuperShorty® for hotfill applications available.
BBERICAP has converted 20 lines from PCO 1810 to PCO 1881 meanwhile; numerous further lines will be converted soon. BERICAP supports these line conversions with its technical service team.
In order to complete the product program, BERICAP offers a 3-piece Push-Pull Sportscap for PCO 1881. A Push-Pull Sportscap without liner, suitable for wet decontamination is in preparation.
