Juice is a drink made from the extraction or pressing of the natural liquid contained in fruit and vegetables. It can also refer to liquids that are flavored with concentrate or other biological food sources, such as meat or seafood, such as clam juice.
At VKPAK, we’re proud to be able to offer our machinery to a number of different industries, and that includes the beverage and juice industry. From bottle cleaners to liquid fillers to capping machines, you’ll find everything you need to complete an efficient packaging line.
Organic fruit juices and concentrates, fruit juices with additives, smooth fruit juices, or those with pulp etc. You can bottle them all with our filling and dosing machines.
Alimentary products, especially when fresh or bottled at high temperatures, require special attention, suitable materials and maximum hygiene during the bottling process. Our machines are manufactured with quality materials and are the ideal equipment for the bottling of fresh or pasteurized fruit juices. Our filling machines can even bottle pulpy juices, or juices that require a hot-filling process.
Glass or Plastic Juice Bottles?
Glass is a popular choice for beverages because it is nonporous and impermeable, so it will not affect the taste or smell of the liquid within. Using glass juice bottles also gives your product a high-end look, especially when paired with the right swing-top cap or screw-on lid. For a container that is more resistant to breakage, plastic juice bottles are good options. PET plastic offers clarity similar to glass, but is more resistant to impact, making it a good option for juice containers that will be used frequently, like orange juice bottles. HDPE plastic is just as impact-resistant but is more opaque, so it is a good choice for products that do not need to showcase the color of the liquid inside.
Juice Bottle Cap Styles
Once you've chosen your bottle style, you'll need to decide what kind of cap to pair with it. A screw-on lid with a lug finish makes round juice bottles easy to open and close often. A snap-on cap also makes any type of beverage bottle easy to open, and some styles are tamper-evident to offer extra security to consumers. When looking for unique bottle styles like cold-pressed juice bottles, consider your product features and selling capacities to match the container. Swing top caps give bottles a special look and include a stopper that stays attached to the bottle.
Juice capping machine, usually choose the following equipment, the specific machine selection needs to be based on the shape of the cap, size, capping method to decide.
