Dosing liquids with ease and accuracy

The new Bark dosing system integrated into bottles made by Greiner Packaging International simplifies the dosing of liquids. This innovative packaging solution is produced at our Rastatt facility in Germany for the Belgian, German and Dutch markets.

Kremsmünster, 20 February 2013 – Innovations join together. The Dutch company Bark has incorporated the theme of innovation in its company designation, and for packaging specialist, Greiner Packaging International, innovation has always been the central driving force toward success. Together, both companies contribute their strengths into a new packaging solution ideally suited for liquid substances that need to be precisely measured. The end result is that bottling companies across a variety of sectors – from household articles to chemical products – will benefit.

Measuring ideal quantity becomes a cinch
The Bark dosing chamber is incorporated into the bottle itself and requires no outside mechanical force such as squeezing or similar handling. It is invisible to the user and works from within the container. To determine the ideal quantity of liquid needed, the user just turns the bottle upside down. When the container is then returned rightside up, the cover can be removed to easily pour out the proper amount of liquid. This dual-chamber design allows for the exact portioning of various dosing quantities using a single container.

Three volumes, lots of freedom in design
Greiner Packaging International produces the dual-chamber bottles for the Bark dosing system at its German location in Rastatt. At present, three volumes are manufactured holding 250ml, 500ml, and 1000ml. For decoration, the extrusion-blow-molded HDPE bottles use labels. Customers are offered a great amount of creative leeway with regards to color, shape and design. Upon request, the packs can also be supplied with childproof closure systems.
