Novembal strengthens position in the aseptic arena with their Novaqua 38A mm cap
Novembal, an independently managed business unit of the Sidel Group, producing plastic caps and closures for beverage manufacturers, presents the Novaqua 38A mm cap. The solution furthers the company’s contribution to the aseptic PET value chain and commitment to continuous quality improvement.
Lorenzo van Haelst, Managing Director of Novembal, presented Novembal’s latest solutions for the Sensitive Products market – comprising Liquid Dairy Products (LDP) as well as Juices, Nectars, Soft Drinks, Isotonics and Teas (JNSDIT) – at a public event in Chicago, Illinois. The event featured presentations from the industry’s top processors and influencers, including forward-thinking developments that will shape the future and engage conversation and company growth.
The conference included a special discussion on sustainability and environmental readiness, a key topic that many in caps and closures want to better understand. With the Sidel Aseptic Combi PredisTM as the world’s first aseptic PET filling equipment with dry preform sterilisation approved by the FDA, this was an excellent opportunity for Novembal to show brand owners, co-packers, injectors and recyclers the company’s portfolio which is compatible with pioneering solutions, such as the Novaqua 38A cap.
“Part of Novembal’s strengths is strong manufacturing practices that help deliver the performance and quality our customers demand and expect in the aseptic arena,” explains Lorenzo van Haelst.
Pioneering caps and closure solutions for the sensitive market
This cap perfectly matches the high output speed offered by the Sidel Aseptic Combi Predis and can be used also in wet decontamination production processes. The conference represented also a live platform where Novembal was able to champion its commitment to help customers minimise their environmental footprint.
During the presentation, Lorenzo van Haelst introduced the benefits of the Novaqua 38A, highlighting its tightness, design, ease of opening and resealing and quality features. The closure has a proven track record and answers to the demand of producers and consumers when it comes to product safety. “We also showed data that favour the three-lead version of Novaqua for aseptic bottling in comparison to the two-lead version. This is because the three threads are able to better protect the product and prevent leaking. This bottle cap meets producer demands for a tight seal while still being easy to open for consumers through its low opening torque,” explains Novembal’s Managing Director.
