Maintaining glass bottle condition is essential. Your returnable bottle fleet represents a significant investment. Can you continue to send out scuffed – or what may appear as unclean bottles – without compromising your brand?
Diversey has developed two new hygiene solutions, as part of the company’s returnable glass BottleCare programme. During the washing cycle bottles are exposed to high temperatures and harsh chemicals.
Scuffing is a common problem and glaze removal accelerates on each subsequent cycle.
DivoBright Defend is a sustainable additive delivering superior glass protection and cleaning power beyond existing corrosive detergents, which are severely compromised in their cleaning ability.
The chemistry used is non EDTA or Phosphate based, exhibiting a better environmental profile.
High-performance cleaning at a more economic consumption rate extends the life of returnable glass bottle fleets by up to 50%. Better cleaning performance improves line efficiency and achieves a reduction in carbon footprint and operational costs.
The reduction in re-wash rates ensures food safety. Micro contamination risks are reduced through scale removal and residue build-up actively prevented.
DivoMask is a complete bottle maskant system. The bottles receive a high shine, quick drying and non-sticky maskant. The average number of trips for a returnable bottle is twenty: the new system can achieve fifty.
DivoMask meets the beverage industry’s tough requirements and exceeds required parameters in four key challenges. These include a freeze-thaw test, realistic drying time, superior visual coating and economy – the cost of masking one bottle is less than one per cent of the value of a replacement.
BottleCareincreases sustainability. Acquiring a returnable fleet becomes a positive choice over plastic.
Reducing the annual investment in glass taps into positive sentiment to meet German consumer expectations. While meeting water, energy and emissions goals, and reducing reliance on virgin resources are set to become indispensable contributors to future industry success.
The BottleCare range will be displayed in a working exhibit at BrauBeviale from 13th – 15th of November at the Exhibition Centre Nürnberg in Hall 4/ 4-545.
