A gel is a complex solid but fluid substance with liquid-like properties. A gel is a semi-solid that can have properties ranging from soft and weak to hard and tough. Gels are defined as a substantially dilute cross-linked system, which exhibits no flow when in the steady-state, although the liquid phase may still diffuse through this system. A gel has been defined phenomenologically as a soft, solid or solid-like material consisting of two or more components, one of which is a liquid, present in substantial quantity.
Gel is among the more viscous liquids that VKPAK’s filling and packaging equipment can handle. We offer top-quality gel filling equipment for a variety of gel products. We offer many different customizable options that you can integrate in your production line to maximize productivity and efficiency, giving your facility what it needs to fulfill a large volume of orders with consistent effectiveness.
By weight, gels are mostly liquid, yet they behave like solids because of a three-dimensional cross-linked network within the liquid. It is the crosslinking within the fluid that gives a gel its structure (hardness) and contributes to the adhesive stick (tack). In this way, gels are a dispersion of molecules of a liquid within a solid medium.[From Wiki]
- Hair gel, a gel used for setting hair styles which makes it stay still
- Shower gel, a cosmetic body wash
- Personal lubricant used for sex purposes
Broadly speaking, gels include a wide range of products, and we are mainly talking about bottling or tube packaging of gels with a certain degree of fluidity.
Usage: They are used in filling thick liquids like different sorts of gel, creams, and lotions. Nonetheless, it can also fill water-thin beverages and various paste products. Some of these varieties include — shampoo, hair gels, hair conditioners, cosmetic creams, thick sauces, honey, paste, cleaners, car wax, and much more.
Install A Customized System Of Gel Filling Equipment
Gel is highly viscous, meaning that it requires the use of gel filling machines that are intended for this type of liquid. VKPAK carries this machinery along with several other types of liquid packaging machines to make filling and packaging more efficient. Based on your product type and its specific filling and packaging requirements, we can help with equipment selection, setup, and installation.
After your gel product passes through the filling process, a system of other liquid packaging equipment can complete the rest of the packaging process to prepare products for shipping. Cappers can fit many types of containers with custom-sized and -shaped caps. Labelers can print and place labels with custom branding, images, and text on containers. To efficiently transport products from one end of the production line to the other, conveyor systems are available with custom speed settings to maintain efficiency.
