What's the distinction between overflow capacity and net fill capacity?

The overflow capacity and net fill capacity of a container refer to two different measurements related to how much a container can hold:

  • Overflow Capacity: This refers to the maximum volume a container can hold when filled completely to the brim, allowing the contents to overflow slightly without spilling. It represents the total capacity of the container, including any space above the rim.
  • Net Fill Capacity: This refers to the actual usable volume of the container when filled to a specified level below the rim. It excludes any space above the fill line, such as headspace or room for closure. Net fill capacity is often used to indicate the amount of product that can be safely contained within the container without risk of spillage or leakage.

In summary, overflow capacity indicates the maximum volume a container can hold, including overflow, while net fill capacity represents the actual usable volume of the container for containing products.


Can glass jars or bottles withstand freezing?

In general, glass can endure freezing temperatures without fracturing. However, there are risks associated with freezing liquids in glass containers. When a liquid freezes, it expands, exerting pressure on the container walls, potentially causing cracks or shattering. Moreover, insufficient space left at the container's top for liquid expansion during freezing can escalate pressure, leading to breakage.

To mitigate breakage risks when freezing liquids in glass containers, it's crucial to leave ample space at the container's top for expansion and to avoid abrupt temperature changes, such as placing hot glass in a freezer. Additionally, handling glass containers with care during freezing is advisable to minimize the risk of breakage.

What are the primary methods for filling glass containers?

  • Hot Fill: In this process, glass containers are filled with hot liquid or product, usually at temperatures exceeding 180°F (82°C). The heat aids in sterilizing both the product and the container, minimizing the risk of contamination. Subsequently, the containers are typically sealed to uphold freshness.
  • Cold Fill: Cold filling entails filling glass containers with cold or room temperature liquid or product. This approach is preferred for products unsuitable for high temperatures or those not requiring heat-based sterilization. Following filling, container sealing may occur based on product and packaging specifications.
  • Hot Water Bath Glass Filling: Also known as hot water bath canning or processing, this method is utilized for preserving foods in glass jars, particularly high-acid foods like fruits, pickles, jams, and jellies.
  • Autoclave Glass Jar Filling: This technique involves filling glass jars with food or liquid products in commercial or industrial settings, primarily for items necessitating sterilization under high pressure and temperature. Autoclave filling is prevalent in the food processing industry, especially for packaging canned fruits, vegetables, meats, and ready-to-eat meals.
