KHS wide-neck PET containers for hot filling

Thursday, 24 October, 2019 | Supplied by: KHS Pacific Pty Ltd

The KHS wide-neck PET containers are suitable for the hot filling of food. With low weight and good recycling properties, the line-compatible containers are designed to help to reduce the carbon footprint throughout the life cycle. An alternative to the non-returnable glass receptacle, the containers also provide a level of product safety due to the FreshSafe PET coating.

The packaging can be produced on the InnoPET Blomax Series V stretch blow moulder in what is known as the blow-trim process or from preforms with a moulded neck which can be crystalline as required. Heating the blow moulds electrically, KHS manufacturers can thermally condition the containers for standard market filling temperatures. The PET alternative is designed to withstand both the positive and negative pressures which can occur in the closed container after the filling process.

KHS opted for PET plastic for its wide-neck containers, as they are lighter than glass containers. PET preforms are also smaller than their glass alternatives; consequently, they take up less space during transportation and storage. PET containers are also claimed to have a higher energy efficiency than non-returnable glass receptacles. PET can also be a good insulator, as the filling temperatures needed to obtain the necessary number of pasteurisation units is lower than those for glass.

KHS provides customised containers tailored to the customer’s requirements, taking the specifications of the filling line into consideration.
