US - When STIHL, a leading manufacturer of chain saws, needed a pouring spout to provide its customers with an easy refill process, it approached Bericap for help.
As a chain saw needs to be permanently oiled during the working process, a separate small tank at the engine of the chain saw has to be refilled by a 5 liter canister several times a day during working hours.
Bericap’s new three-piece DIN closure SVB 45/28 MAB was the solution; this new closure system was able to provide controlled pouring of the lubricant due to its extra long spout and two separate flow controls (marguerites). STIHL’s customers can now refill the chain saw engine tank without spilling (“anti-glug”) and without any spoilage
To protect the high class branded oil used by the chain saw, the closure has three tamper evident systems: a tamper evident ring at the closure which is linked to the canister; bridges, which need to be broken before one can open the closure on the spout; a tear-off membrane at the end of the spout.
The closure fits on all existing DIN 45 canister neck finishes which are in the market, main size between 3 –5 and 10 liters. Customers who are already using Bericap’s SK 45/26 MAB MDR can easily adjust the new SVB 45/28 MAB for special products.
This closure solution can be used in the automotive industry, e.g. for windshield products, in the paints, varnishes and other chemical industries and for liquids in the food industry e.g. sauces and dressings for the restaurants business or bulk catering.
For all larger canister sizes - 15, 20 and 25 liter - Bericap customers have the option of using the “Big Brother” closure SVB 60/32 MAB which provides the same spout features.
