E-proPLAST GmbH has developed a hot-fillable, disposable PET-bottle which does not differ from the design of an aseptic filled PET-bottle.
Besides the benificial design the weight of these bottles can be reduced with this technology and therefore the costs.
The benefits of the hotfilling technology are:
• aseptic filling lines with an investment of more than 8 mio Euros are only profitable when large quantities are filled.
• the HOTFILL-technology is absolute safe. The technology is easy to handle and operate.
• existing glas filling lines can be converted with relatively simple instruments. Especially small and medium sized organizations are able to fill fruit juices in PET. With the panelless HOTFILL-bottles popular fruit juices such as orange-, fruitpunch- and applejuices can be processed. Depending on the product a shelf-life between 9 and 12 months can be achived.
