DISPENSING SYSTEMS

  • Sustainability with PCR Products – Silgan Dispensing’s broad portfolio of PCR solutions uses post- consumer recycled (PCR) plastic in its packaging and dispensing solutions, enabling the brand to meet its sustainability goals. Silgan Dispensing’s PCR portfolio includes well-known pumps and sprayers, including the SD200® dispensing pump, TS800® trigger sprayer and select dispensing Closures produced in its North American manufacturing plants. The selection continues to grow with the addition of SD®20c and Mark VII® Max products that are manufactured in its European facilities.
  • Home & Garden – Silgan Dispensing offers solutions ranging from trigger sprayers to battery- operated remote dispensers. The TS800 trigger sprayer, with its proven reliability and performance, continues to be one of the most trusted dispensers by some of the most iconic household brand names.
  • Beauty & Personal Care – Silgan Dispensing designed its sun care solution, Mark VII® Max Style specifically around consumer pain points. The re-designed shape is a result of our own in-depth consumer research into preferences around sun and hair care application. As such, Mark VII® Max Style offers users more ergonomic comfort and security during application courtesy of the increased size of the pump and the emulation of a finger groove plus two added grips at the top of the pump.
  • Dispensing solutions for fast-growing markets – Responding to the evolving needs of brand owners for fast-growing markets is just another way Silgan Dispensing sees itself as a true partner. For example, the pet care market is growing and consumers are expecting to encounter the same dispensing experience for pet products as they would use a personal care product on themselves. Whether it’s wet or dry shampoos, our fine mist sprayers, dispensing closures and lotion pumps provide a superior experience even on high-viscosity formulas. The trigger sprayers and aerosols that are available from Silgan Dispensing can be used for applications such as flea & tick care, stains and indoor odor control.

EQUIPMENT

  • 2D-X2 Dud Detector

    2D-X2 Dud Detector

    2D-X2 Dud Detector – New dud detector and inspection system employs dual lasers to scan the surface of the cap on a packaged beverage or food product to determine proper cap sealing. The side-by-side laser beams each scan the cap one-third of the way across its surface, so users can immediately detect cap tilt and overall cap height.

  • Troubleshooting Video Series now available on YouTube! – four new videos address loose, cocked or stripped caps as well as loose lugs. See all of the videos in the booth or visit the Silgan YouTube Channel
