Industries such as the medical, chemical, brewing, food, and beverage sectors frequently handle and transport many types of fluid. Therefore, finding effective liquid packaging solutions is of utmost importance to these facilities’ operations. When dealing with fluid ingredients, processing components, and products, it’s essential for your company to maintain secure, transportable, and dependable packaging.
This post will look at various types of liquid packaging containers and measure how they compare with our progressive packaging solution, the CUBITAINER.
Common Liquid Packaging Containers Versus the CUBITAINER
Below are some of the most common methods of transporting liquids and how they compare with the CUBITAINER.
- Open-head pails’ unwieldy design makes them difficult to transport, clean, and reuse, unlike the CUBITAINER.
- Open-head pails typically take up a lot of space, and in many cases, you can’t even stack them on top of each other; however, the CUBITAINER is collapsible and stackable
- Open-head pails expose liquids to airborne pathogens, unlike the CUBITAINER, which is fully sealed
- The CUBITAINER has a smaller footprint than tight-head containers: A standard pallet of CUBITAINERs (96 filled five-gallon cubes) takes up 96 cubic feet of storage space, whereas a standard pallet of 64 standard tight-head pails can occupy up to 120 cubic feet of space
- Tight-head containers usually only work with large-volume orders, whereas most CUBITAINER products have low quantity order minimums
- Blow-molded tight-head containers have a number of manufacturing issues associated with production: they need a cooling off period to clear excess plastic, and they allow air in as they're developed; meanwhile, the CUBITAINER has a streamlined manufacturing process that ensures the integrity of the package
Bag in box
- Bag in boxes can only package liquids, whereas CUBITAINERs can ship a variety of other materials
- The comparison is clear: no other form of liquid packaging offers you the same level of versatility, utility, and affordability as the CUBITAINER.
