The market success of the BERICAP Double Seal SuperShorty® is seemingly irrepressible. The SuperShorty®-Family has already been able to successfully establish itself throughout the world. Whether it is oxygen-sensitive beer in PET packaging, aseptic filling or the use of carbonated beverages: BERICAP has the right product for each closure.
PCO 1881 developed by the International Society of Beverage Technologists (ISBT) specially for the filling of carbonated beverages is very probably the most well-known lightweight bottleneck to have established itself on the market to date.
BERICAP offers six different closures with different weights for the PCO 1881 bottleneck, upon request also in a customised design.
The single part DoubleSeal SuperShorty® Crown was established as the first version to be used in the beer market and can be equipped with a liner that absorbs oxygen to maintain the quality of the beer.
Additional DoubleSeal SuperShorty® versions that also come in one part, such as the DoubleSeal SuperShorty® CSD, and the weight-reduced DoubleSeal SuperShorty® Eco were successfully launched onto the market for carbonated beverages (up to 8gr CO2 / l).
The DoubleSeal SuperShorty® Still is available for still beverages. The DoubleSeal SuperShorty® Still is also available for hot filling. This offers a significant potential for savings compared to conventional closures and bottlenecks.
The LinerSeal Supershorty® rounds off the range of beverage closures.
In addition to this sport caps were developed for the PCO 1881 bottleneck: The two part THUMB‘UP® and the 3 part PushPull sports closure have now been successfully launched on the market.
BERICAPs PUSH PULL Next Generation – filling without aluminium foil
Sports Caps for hot and cold aseptic fillings
Sport closures are best suited for consumption when on the move, when travelling or when doing sport; always on those occasions where the consumer wants to open and close their drinking bottle rapidly and simply.
The BERICAPs PUSH PULL Next Generation meets this requirement. This closure does not require an aluminium foil as a seal, is easy to open and meets all the requirements of a modern, environmentally-friendly and customer-friendly packaging.
Thanks to its user-friendly functionality: The consumer can enjoy a drink immediately after removing the protective gap, and by virtue of its flow rate that is approx. 30 % higher than that of conventional products this sports cap has achieved increasing acceptance in the market and on the part of consumers since its launch in 2010. The 3 part PUSH PUSH PULL Next Generation is equipped with DoubleSeal™ - technology that has also been successfully used for other BERICAP closures in the beverage industry.
The 38mm closure has been used for aspetic fillings up to now and is appropriate for wet and dry sterilisation processes. The successful qualification of the 33mm PushPull Next Generation for the hot filling process by a multinational beverage filler in Latin America is a new feature. This is a further innovative step due to the complete dispensing with an aluminium foil seal.
