Honey is a sweet, viscous food substance made by honey bees and some related insects, such as stingless bees. Bees produce honey from the sugary secretions of plants or from secretions of other insects, by regurgitation, enzymatic activity, and water evaporation.
Honey filling applications require heavy-duty machinery that can handle liquids of this thick viscosity. VKPAK has a selection of honey filling machines, cappers, labelers, conveyors, and bottle cleaners to meet the needs of these applications. Our equipment can handle unique honey packaging designs and maintain a consistent level of accuracy and speed throughout the filling process. With a system of our machinery installed in your facility, you’ll benefit from improved efficiency and productivity.
Honey gets its sweetness from the monosaccharides fructose and glucose, and has about the same relative sweetness as sucrose. It has attractive chemical properties for baking and a distinctive flavor when used as a sweetener. Most microorganisms do not grow in honey, so sealed honey does not spoil, even after thousands of years.[From Wiki]
Glass Honey Containers
Glass is commonly used to package honey due to its strong barriers against moisture, contaminants, and oxidation. Clear glass also allows customers to easily see the products packaged within and helps to showcase vibrant colors.
These ribbed clear glass jars feature wide openings that allow for easy and clean dispensing. Glass honey pot jars are another classic glass honey jar option that can beautifully showcase an entire line. The round, tapered shape of these glass jars features molded notches on both sides for an added design flair.
Plastic Honey Containers
PET plastic bottles and jars that could be ideal for housing honey and honey infused products. PET is a durable, semi-flexible plastic with high clarity. It is one of the most recyclable plastics and provides substantial barriers to protect the products packaged within.
Plastic honey bear bottles with snap top caps are an iconic packaging choice for honey. These well recognized bear-shaped bottles feature molded bear faces and bodies with textured fur details. For easy labeling, the honey bear bottles have flat square panels on the bear's stomach to incorporate your logo and product details.
Install A System Of Honey Filling Machines
Because of honey’s higher level of viscosity, honey requires the use of pressure/gravity fillers that can properly fill containers. Our honey filling equipment can fill jars and bottles with consistent accuracy and precision. Filling machine configurations are customizable depending on facility space requirements and applications, with table-top models available. You can also combine them seamlessly with other types of liquid packaging machinery we offer. Simple programming makes it easy to set custom speed and fill settings.
Efficient Conveyor, Capping, And Labeling Systems
After the liquid filling process is completed, our cappers and labelers can fulfill final packaging needs. Capping machines can fit unique types of caps to bottles and jars of nearly any size and shape, and labelers can apply custom product labels containing brand names, images, and nutritional information. To ensure efficiency throughout the packaging process, a system of conveyors can transport bottles at varying speeds from filling to final packaging processes.
Prior to filling, a bottle cleaning system can make sure that bottles and other types of honey containers are free of dust and other potential contaminants. Bottle cleaners use an ionized vortex method with self-centering rinsing heads and a vacuum to thoroughly clean packaging. Any debris is evacuated into a collection bag.
With a complete custom configuration of liquid packaging equipment from VKPAK, your production line will be more capable of giving you consistent results.
