Can for hot filling

Submitted by: Pirlo GmbH & Co KG
Can for hot filling

In a sophisticated process this can by Pirlo has succeeded in enabling hot filling directly into a tinplate can. The novel can has a membrane, and pressure regulation is established which prevents collapsing – thus enabling direct hot-filling for the tinplate can market. The solution to this problem is provided by a foil integrated into the base in which a hole has been previously made. This prevents the formation of a vacuum as the aluminium base extends inwards when the tin is cooled and thus compensates for the pressure – the hull remaining stable.
