As with glass bottles, the characteristics of the material glass should be highlighted. Glass is gas-tight, inert and diffusion-tight. This means that glass packaging is impermeable and tasteless and does not interfere with its contents. For this reason, glass is particularly suitable for the storage of all kinds of foods. Another big advantage of glass is its unlimited recyclability. Waste glass is thus not an objectionable residue, but a desired raw material, which is recycled again and again. Jars are nearly always made from flint glass. The most common closure for preserving jars is the twist-off lid. When selecting the screw cap, pay attention to the processing and the properties of the food product.
ETIVERA offers twist-off caps with different kinds of seals made of various compounds for specific process conditions.
The standard compound is a standard pasteurization seal for process temperatures up to 95 ° C. Use only recommended in preheated condition. This closure is not suitable for oily products.
The special compound is a pasteurization seal for process temperatures up to 115 ° C. Use only recommended in preheated condition.
The screw cap with PVC-free seal is especially designed for cold filling. Basically, recommended for oily products.
We also offer twist-off caps with vacuum indicator / click. When the filled product cools down after hot filling (95°C) a vacuum inside the jar arises, which pulls the indicator down. When opening the jar, the vacuum releases with an audible click of the vacuum indicator, hence you can control that the glass was originally sealed.
Please note for all closures: compliance with the permitted migration limits must be checked and verified by the user, since only he determines the composition of the final product, the manufacturing process and the storage and use conditions.
When it comes to the stack ability of canned jars, it is important that the form of the glass bottom matches to the shape of the twist-off lid. The jars of our FACTUM series offer this feature, which makes these jars not only visually, but also practically very attractive.
A jar without shoulder, which enables the user to overturn the entire content at once, for example, on a plate, is called straight jar. This wide-necked jar type is mainly used for spreads as well as pates. Also, for serving desserts in the creative kitchen it looks beautiful.
Wire bail jars, also called clip top jars, are very useful as storage jars and they have a lid that is also made of glass. The jar has an air-tight rubber gasket which makes it convenient for storage of dry ingredients such as beans, flour, pumpkin seeds and rice. However, the gasket also makes it suitable for canning of vegetables or fruits as well as for preserving meat pies, jams, pickles and chutneys. Furthermore, this kind of traditional jars with the pre-assembled lid are also popular for serving soups, salads or desserts.
The smallest representatives of our jars are often used as serving glasses. They have a cylindrical shape and are ideal for portioning, for instance, jams, honey, jellies or spicy delicacies. The small jars are beautiful accessories on every breakfast table.
Due to the increasing appreciation of the material glass itself, a renaissance of canning came into existence. Especially in the meat delicatessen sector, there is an increased use of glass packaging instead of plastic packaging noticeable. At home, one-way jars are often used as storage jars as a second use. For storage of dry foods such as dried fruits and nuts, lentils, beans and noodles, large volume jars are just perfect.
