PVT Overview PDF Print E-mail

Innovation Update, LLC, research and development company of vented technologies, and Pearce Plastics, Inc., producer of small and medium size runs for product testing purposes, will supply technology services to distributors and licensed manufacturers on a confidential disclosure basis. The Pearce Venting Technology is available for both distributors and end-users alike.

Innovation Update has made a contribution in the packaging industry with its new-patented Vented Technology that is solving problems in the chemical and cosmetics personal care fields. This technology will eliminate most paneling, internal pressure and cap back-off problems, which cause distortion and leakage.


WHY DO WE NEED IT?

  • Hot Fill Paneling
  • Chemical Polarization Paneling
  • Atmosphere Pressure Change Paneling
  • Internal Pressure Bloating

HOT FILL PANELING

Products with a heavy viscosity, or products with certain chemical compounds have to be filled hot (90-180F.) If the package is capped and sealed before the product is cooled, the volume of the product will shrink creating a vacuum inside the package. This causes the walls of the container to pull in causing paneling.

The Pearce Venting Technology allows air to enter into the package until the pressure is equalized, thus preventing the vacuum buildup and eventual paneling.

The Advantages: Reduces porosity and cap back off. No time consuming cooling tunnels; do not have to resort to heavier walled, more rigid containers; do not lose sales because of unsightly packages.

CHEMICAL POLARIZATION PANELING

BLOATING & PANELING SAMPLES
Certain chemical compounds will react with the material that the container is made of. This will cause positive or negative pressure changes inside the sealed container. This can cause the walls of the container to push out or draw in.

The PVT allows gases to escape or air to be drawn in equalizing the pressure, eliminating package disfiguration.

The Advantages: More flexibility in container choices; Do not lose sales because of unsightly packages.

ATMOSPHERE PRESSURE CHANGE PANELING

When product is filled at one altitude and then transported to another, or is shipped via air, external pressure changes will effect the sealed package. This can cause paneling, or bloating.

The PVT allows the package to breath in or out to equalize pressure avoiding package distortion.

The Advantages: Reduced product spoilage.

INTERNAL PRESSURE BLOATING

Certain chemicals such as Hydrogen Peroxide will cause gasification or products. These gases will build up in a sealed container causing the package to bloat and in the worst-case blowout.

The PVT allows these gases to vent out of the container minimalizing or eliminating package distortion.

The Advantages: Reduces porosity and cap back off. Reduced product spoilage; Do not lose sales from unsightly packages; Customer safety advantages.
