BERICAP Technology
for beer and O2 sensitive drinks in PET bottles

Oxygen sensitive products can be protected by oxygen

scavengers. This is well known and several technologies are
available. BERICAP produces closures for carbonated and
still beverages with a built-in oxygen scavenging capacity.
The impact of an oxygen scavenging closure on the oxygen
sensitive product is shown in Chart 1. Immediately after
filling there is oxygen from various sources inside a bottle
in the beverage, in the walls of the bottle, in the headspace. Modern filling technology can keep this initial
level relatively low. After filling, until consumption, oxygen
ingress occurs through the bottle and through the cap.
Ingress through the cap is possible by a poor mechanical
seal or by permeation. The oxygen scavenger integrated
in the closure will predominantly absorb the oxygen
which is or gets into the headspace after filling. The
closure contributes to preservation of the oxygen sensitive
product, but the closure cannot absorb all oxygen getting
access to the beverage from other sources. BERICAP
oxygen scavenging closures O2S have proven in the
field to preserve O2 sensitive products in combination
with barrier- and/or oxygen scavenging bottles.
The BERICAP DoubleSeal SuperShorty O2S and DoubleSeal O2S are based on BERICAPs DoubleSeal closure
concept for carbonated soft drinks which stands for a
safe mechanical seal and high carbonation retention
in cold and hot environment. The oxygen
scavenging compound which complies
with EU and USA regulations is moulded
inside the bore seal and covers the maximum possible surface.

Chart 1
The layer of oxygen scavenging compound is designed to
expose a maximum surface to the O2 sensitive drink to
enhance the scavenging speed. The inner side of the top
plate and the inner surface of the boreseal are totally
covered by the oxygen scavenger. The DoubleSeal of the
closure remains totally free from any compound. To avoid
any infiltration of sterilizing liquid used for aseptic filling
the oxygen scavenging compound overlaps the lower
end of the boreseal.
BERICAP DoubleSeal SuperShorty O2S and DoubleSeal
O2S can be applied on standard cappers. BERICAP provides technical service to evaluate, modify and set the

Chart 2: shows the evolution of incremental total oxygen

content measured in mg/ltr. in a bottle over a period of
6 months. The combination of a multi-layer barrier bottle
with an oxygen scavenging feature and a BERICAP
DoubleSeal SuperShorty O2S or DoubleSeal O2S shows
after 6 months a slightly lower total oxygen content than
immediately after filling.

Chart 4: TNO Holland have developed a test procedure

to check the speed of the oxygen scavenger performance
in a closure. The initial oxygen in the headspace unavoidable immediately after filling is nearly fully absorbed in
about 24 hours after filling.

Chart 3: shows that the combination of a bottle with inside

barrier and the BERICAP DoubleSeal SuperShorty O2S or
DoubleSeal O2S allows for a small incremental increase
of total oxygen content in the bottle over a period of 6
months. This ingress of oxygen added to the initial total
oxygen content immediately after filling is too small to
have a negative impact on the content. Such negative
impact is expected only at a level of > 1 mg/ltr. total
oxygen content.

Chart 5: This test simulates the oxygen ingress during the

shelf life of the filled bottle. The samples having passed
the test as described in chart 4 are artificially overloaded
with oxygen. The chart shows that the oxygen scavenging
capacity of the closure is powerful enough to absorb this
artifically increased level of oxygen in about 63 hours.

The results in chart 2 and 3 compare:

Key advantages


no liner but a safe inner and outside seal:

We can customise DoubleSeal SuperShorty O2S

and DoubleSeal O2S by printing up to three colours.
We can also assist with artwork origination to
ensure maximum impact whilst recognising the
constraints of printing on plastic closures.

the well proven DoubleSeal-concept as known

from the soft drink industry

scavenger performs independent of sealing function

strong oxygen scavenging performance
moulded in organoleptic resin no off taste
excellent CO retention at ambient and elevated



slit TE band for enhanced tamper-evidence

consistent and convenient removal torques
accommodates slightly damaged bottlenecks
pasteurisation at 65C possible
resistant to temperature peaks during transport
up to three colour top printing
embossment on top possible
EU and FDA conform
The BERICAP DoubleSeal SuperShorty O2S or
DoubleSeal O2S can be handled on virtually any
appropriately designed and correctly set capper.
BERICAP also prides
itself on its technical assistance and has developed a state-of-the-art
BNX capping head. The
calibrated scale allows
an easy adjustment to
guarantee a consistent
application torque,
independent from the
head speed and a
consumer friendly
opening torque. The
new liquid tight and
corrosion resistant
capping head allows a
torque adjustment
without special tooling
- just by hand.

Embossment requires large production lots to justify

the cost of mould inserts and downtime to change
the inserts.

BERICAP has already tested and approved about
50 different pigments to give our customers an
off the shelf range of colours to choose from.
