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

Certain features of bottling equipment, especially the filling machine and capping machine, will generally appear more often in specific industries. For example, an overflow filler will be used a majority of the time in the bottled water industry, due to the level fill that it provides. In the personal care industry, taking a look at bottling equipment for shampoos offers a good example of why these general rules will not always apply.

Thick and Thin

Shampoos can vary in viscosity, This variation means that, unlike bottled water, there is not a single type of filling machine that will be used for 95% of all shampoos. A pump filler might also be an option where a thicker product is being bottled. The characteristics of the specific soap or shampoo being bottled will help to determine the type of filler that will be used.


Some shampoos have a tendency to foam during the filling process. Different types of bottle fillers can use different methods to stop the foam from causing inconsistent fills. Thicker products on different filler types may require a bottom up fill, anti-foaming nozzle attachments or other tactics to control product foaming. Again, the specific shampoo being bottled will determine the best manner for stopping the foam.

Cap types

The bottle cappers used for shampoos will have little to do with the product, but everything to do with the package and cap. Shampoos may use simple flip top caps, flat screw on caps or even pump top caps. A majority of the time, each of these cap types will screw on to the bottle being used, though some exceptions to the screw on cap exist as well. Spindle cappers and chuck capping machines will seal most of the shampoo bottles found on the market, though with pump tops and other unique lids, custom placing or inserting components may be necessary to consistently and reliably create the seal.

For these reasons the characteristics of each individual product will be analyzed to find the best solution for the unique product and demand.
