Hot filling is the procedure of disinfecting/sterilizing the product in order to prolong the shelf-life, ensuring the safety of the product. With the process of hot filling, harmful bacteria in the bottle can contaminate or damage the product, making it rather unsafe and bad to consume and affecting the health of the individual who’s consuming. To create hot fill plastic bottle, a liquid is heated to a temperature of 194 degree Fahrenheit, in order to eliminate contamination which might occur in the product. Hot filling is a procedure that is done with glass or other types of tough plastics, which can withstand high temperatures required to thoroughly sterilize the bottle, containing <4.5 pH products like isotonic drinks, soups, marinades, juices, among others. With the glass bottles being traditionally used for hot filling process, the PET bottles are able to withstand the heat required with hot filling without becoming deformed or collapsing. As plastic is less expensive than glass, the hot fill plastic bottle is being highly preferred by customers. The hot fill plastic bottle allows the transport of temperature-sensitive products while maintaining the product’s integrity. The rapid growth of globalization and increasing mandates for food and beverages by various countries and regions is generating demand for the use of hot fill plastic bottle.
The distribution of vaccines/vials require good packaging. Strong vials are a necessity which don’t chemically react with the vaccine solution.
