Drinktec 2017 – Silgan Closures

11.09.2017 | Hall A4, Stand 531


Silgan Closures has developed a new plug and play system for the bottled water market. The K-Seal offers improved operation and hygiene combined with valuable sustainability benefits for five gallon containers.

The closure features Silgan’s unique Probe+® system, suitable for a wide range of water coolers. This enhances overall ease-of-use by ensuring full plug engagement to the cooler spike with minimal risk of misapplication and
detached plugs. The K-Seal also retains the overall height of a traditional five gallon closure, meaning it can run on existing lines with little or no adjustment to filling or capping equipment.

Hygiene levels have been improved thanks to the reformulated Flow Seal material which dramatically reduces the ability for microbes to attach themselves to the material surface and survive. In addition a reduction in pigment usage further minimises the risk of taste or odour issues.

To meet growing demands for more sustainable packaging solutions, use of the latest manufacturing techniques, along with a new resin and low-power consumption during production, reduce the closure’s carbon footprint.

All materials used in the manufacture of the closure are fully approved for direct food contact and meet relevant EU directives and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) requirements.
