Shampoo Filling Machine


Shampoo is a hair care product, typically in the form of a viscous liquid, that is used for cleaning hair. Shampoo is used by applying it to wet hair, massaging the product into the scalp, and then rinsing it out. Some users may follow a shampooing with the use of hair conditioner.

Shampoo is one of the many liquid products that VKPAK equipment can fill and package. Facilities can utilize complete systems of shampoo filling equipment, labelers, cappers, and conveyors to meet nearly any shampoo packaging facility’s needs. Our machinery can also fill and packaging many other low-to-high-viscosity liquids, including beverages and industrial liquid products. Using a system of reliable equipment that we offer, you can maximize your liquid packaging facility’s longevity.

Shampoo is a hair care product, typically in the form of a viscous liquid, that is used for cleaning hair. Shampoo is used by applying it to wet hair, massaging the product into the scalp, and then rinsing it out. Some users may follow a shampooing with the use of hair conditioner.

The typical reason of using shampoo is to remove the unwanted build-up of sebum in the hair without stripping out so much as to make hair unmanageable. Shampoo is generally made by combining a surfactant, most often sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium laureth sulfate, with a co-surfactant, most often cocamidopropyl betaine in water to form a thick, viscous liquid. The sulphate ingredient acts as a surfactant, essentially heavy-duty soap that makes it easier to trap oil and grease.

Shampoos are cleaning formulations used for a wide range of applications, including personal care, pet use, and carpets. Most are manufactured in the same manner. They are composed primarily of chemicals called surfactants that have the special ability to surround oily materials on surfaces and allow them to be rinsed away by water. Most commonly, shampoos are used for personal care, especially for washing the hair.[From Wiki]

Shampoo and conditioner bottles offer convenient packaging for liquids and gels. Choose from PET, LDPE, HDPE, MDPE, and PVC plastic bottles that are ideal for shampoo and conditioner bottles. Each plastic shares common qualities with the others, as well as unique traits of their own. PET bottles, for example, are clear and impact-resistant. HDPE has high flexibility. MDPE has high shock resistance when dropped. Common shampoo bottles are as follows:

When we discuss the choice of filling machine, it is difficult to get rid of the viscosity of the material; usually the viscosity of shampoo is relatively high, so in the choice of filling machine VKPAK will give priority to recommend piston filling machine. Series of piston filling heads are calibrated to deliver exactly the correct amount of shampoo into the bottles. As the bottles move through this section of the filling line, they are filled with shampoo. Then from here the bottles move to the capping machine.

Bottling Equipment for Shampoos

In the bottling industry, certain features of filling and capping equipment are commonly associated with specific industries. However, when it comes to bottling equipment for shampoos, the general rules may not always apply. Shampoos exhibit variations in viscosity, foam during filling, and require specific cap types. Hence, the characteristics of each shampoo product must be carefully analyzed to find the most suitable filling and packaging solutions.

Viscosity Variation:

Unlike bottled water, shampoos come in various viscosity levels. Consequently, a single type of filling machine cannot cater to 95% of all shampoo products. Depending on the specific shampoo being bottled, a pump filler may be employed when dealing with thicker products. The properties of the soap or shampoo play a crucial role in determining the appropriate filler type.

Managing Foam:

Some shampoos tend to foam during the filling process. Different bottle fillers employ diverse methods to prevent foam from causing inconsistent fills. For thicker products, bottom-up filling, anti-foaming nozzle attachments, or other techniques may be necessary to control foam. The optimal approach to tackling foam formation will depend on the specific shampoo being bottled.

Cap types

The choice of bottle cappers for shampoos is primarily influenced by the package and cap design rather than the product itself. Shampoos may use flip-top caps, flat screw-on caps, or pump top caps. While screw-on caps are commonly used, exceptions exist for certain cap types. Spindle cappers and chuck capping machines are frequently employed to seal most shampoo bottles in the market. However, for pump tops and unique lids, custom placing or inserting components may be required to consistently and reliably create a seal.

Due to the aforementioned factors, each individual shampoo product's characteristics are thoroughly analyzed to identify the best solution for its specific requirements and market demand. A comprehensive system of shampoo filling machines can be integrated, as well as other liquid packaging machinery, to create a complete packaging system. This minimizes breakdowns and enhances productivity. With our wide range of options, we can accommodate the unique requirements of your application.
