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.
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 bottle 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. For example: PP Shampoos Bottle Cap(Figure 4 above) is recommended to use a press capping machine, Lotion Pump Cap(Figure 1 above) is recommended to use a 4-wheel chuck capping machine or 6-wheel spindle 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.
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.
Integrate A Complete System Of Shampoo Filling Machines
Shampoo is one of the thicker products that our liquid fillers can handle. In addition to shampoo filling equipment, we also carry other types of liquid packaging machinery to complete your packaging system, minimizing breakdowns while increasing productivity. We offer many different options to meet your application's unique requirements.
Following the filling process, capping equipment can fit customized caps on many different types of bottles to form an airtight seal that prevents contamination and leakage. Labelers can apply clear, Mylar, or paper labels to containers with unique branding, text, and images. To make sure your shampoo products travel with consistent efficiency from start to finish throughout the filling and packaging processes, you can use a system of conveyors programmed at custom speed settings. Using a combination of this equipment, you can benefit from an optimal production line that gives you the results you want.
