The first article intends to answer one of the most frequently asked questions to a glass packaging solution provider, "What capacity bottle/jar will be sufficient to pack my product?"

The answer is not simple because the conversion is not always 1:1, that is, 1,000 grams of a product cannot be filled into a 1,000-ml glass bottle. It depends on host of factors such as type of product, form/texture of product (liquid, powdered, dry, etc.), sugar content in the product, density of the product, etc. For instance, if the density of the product is high, then more grams can be filled in same ml bottle. Generally, the product owners are aware about how much of their product is to be packed, but they are not sure what capacity of bottle is required to pack the desired quantity.

Usually, the capacity of all glass bottles is given in terms of water capacity, ml. When a bottle is filled to overflow capacity, the product is filled to the point that no extra drop can further be added in the bottle.

Product-wise Analysis: Interesting takeaways

Over the years, the number and type of products packed in glass bottles and glass jars have increased manifold, and provided interesting insights:

Let us start with Ghee, which is measured in both litres as well as gms. On an average, in a 1,000-ml bottle, approximately 900 to 930 grams of ghee can be packed in it because the density is low. So, if you want to pack 450 grams of ghee, a 500-ml bottle would be required.

For packing honey and jams, capacity of the bottle will vary even if the quantity to be packed is same as ghee. Due to high sugar content in these products, one would require smaller bottle to pack same grams of product. Honey and jam usually comes almost 25 per cent more than the water capacity. So, if you want to pack 500 grams of honey or jam, a 400-ml bottle is required, and similarly, if you need to pack 250 grams of jam, 200 ml capacity bottle will be required.

For pickles, garlic paste or salsa or any product which is paste/oil based, quantity that can be filled is equal to the capacity of the bottle. So, you will find that in a 400-ml bottle, you will have 400-grams of pickle. In a 200-ml bottle, you will have 200-gram of salsa.

Interestingly, many customers use same bottle for packing different products manufactured by them such as jam, pickle, spices, etc. For example, when a manufacturer buys a 200-ml jar, they can pack 200 grams of pickle, 250 grams of honey or jam, or 60 gms of spices. A customer selects 200 ml jar, and in the same bottle they can pack 200 grams of pickle, 250 grams of honey or jam, or 60 gms of spices. The main advantage of this is that you have to maintain inventory for only one bottle, which is serving multiple products. So, if you have order for pickle, jam, honey or spices it can all be packed in one type of jars without having to maintain different type of jars.

Tomato ketchup is another example. Tomato ketchup is usually heavier than ghee and lighter than jam/honey. Density of the tomato ketchup differs on the basis of bricks, tomato paste and sugar content. Typically, in a 900-ml bottle, 1 kg of tomato ketchup can be packed.

The next in line of examples are powdered products such as coffee and tea. Usually, coffee or tea is about 30 per cent of the water capacity of the bottle. So, if you have 200-gram bottle, you should be expecting about 60 to 65 grams of coffee or tea, which can be packed in the same bottle. This, of course will depend on various other factors too like whether the coffee is grounded/powdered or in bean form, and tea is a leaf or in dry form.

In the current times, a lot of customers are packing dry fruits and seeds in glass bottles. The amount of dry fruit or seeds which can be packed in glass bottle would entirely depend on the size of the seed/dry fruit. It is advisable to fill the bottle and check for your specific product.
