Bottled Water Testing That All Pet Bottle Manufacturers Should Do

by Ricky Martin Marketing Consultant
The demand for packaged drinking water is on the rise and a lot of companies are providing different variants of drinking water. Some come with added minerals while some with flavors. However, bottled drinking water can be hazardous if the bottles are not tested. Almost all types of bottles need proper testing before they are used for drinking water packaging. To keep the number of plastics used to a bare minimum, PET bottle manufacturers try to stick to a bare minimum amount of plastics. However, even with the bare minimum, good quality plastic bottles can be manufactured. Here are some of the tests that Single-Stage PET bottle manufacturers perform to test if a bottle is of good quality or not.

Top Load Testing: PET bottles, in warehouses, or during transportation are wrapped into bundles using shrink wraps. These bundles are then stacked on top of one another. This improves the space efficiency and also reduces the cost to transport the bottles. However, if a bottle is not properly manufactured, it can get damaged during the stacking procedure. If a bottle cannot take the weight of the bottles above it, it can get crushed and cam leak. The weak areas of the bottle generally include the neck region and the bottom. A deformed bottle does not look good on the store shelf. Moreover, the damaged bottle means that the company incurs losses. Therefore, to avoid such scenarios, the bottle manufacturer should test how much top load the bottles can take. This will provide the client with a clear idea of how high the stack can be.

Torque Testing: Torque testing is related to the cap of the bottle. When the bottle is tightly closed, or when the seal is to be broken, the neck of the bottle should not be deformed by the force of the rotation. The bottle is an extremely common tool that is used by a ten-year-old as well as a seventy-year-old. The contents of the bottle should be easily accessible to any user and should not require too much force. Then again, the cap should be tight enough to prevent leaks. Torque testing takes care of all these issues.

Drop Tests: A filled bottle, when dropped from a reasonable height, should not crack or get deformed. A consumer may drop a bottle, but the bottle should not get dented, deformed or cracked. A drop test shows how durable the bottle is. The testing procedure is standardized and there are instruments to test the durability of a bottle.
