Packaging Patent: Bottle design optimized to reduce foaming during filling

Packaging Patent: Bottle design optimized to reduce foaming during filling

The invention from Krones AG relates to a plastic bottle in a functionally advantageous design for the  many beverages or filled goods where it would be desirable not to encounter the base of the container directly during the filling. This would prevent excessive foaming of the product during filling.

The invention describes a container geometry wherein the liquid flows off the lateral wall or inner wall of the container. In this case, the filled goods can be still and/or hot-filled beverages.

Notably, a further benefit of the design is the option to thin-wall such a container.
