Did you know pressure is the primary cause of damage to aluminum and PET containers?
High levels of pressure on conveyors can compact containers, resulting in costly aesthetic damage such as label tearing, scuffing and crush damage.
Pressure, and related mechanical variables such as spin, tilt and friction, cause scuffing and abrasion damage by compacting containers. Damage to the container can range from label tearing and decoration damage, to catastrophic failure.
High pressure doesn’t only affect the container. Sustained pressure increases equipment wear, the frequency of downtime events and maintenance cost on all type of filling lines.
