Bottles are containers that are used for storing and delivering liquids. They are available in a variety of styles and sizes and may be used for a number of different applications. When choosing a bottle for your application, it helps to understand the basic architecture of the container, which can help you make the right selection.
The bottom of the container is called the base. It is generally the largest diameter of the container. To prevent rocking, it is typically recessed. In addition, the base is designed to accommodate a closure. A closure must fit properly to prevent leakage and unsafe spills.
The neck of the bottle is the part that extends from the bottom of the bottle and connects the finish to the body of the bottle. Depending on the material, it can be either a solid or a hollow structure. Some bottles have a neck ring, which is a horizontal ridge that resembles a glass wedding band. This ring can be used for transferring bottles and for orienting them in a specific direction.
There is also a recessed area on the bottom of the bottle designed to prevent rocking and allow for stable bearing on the outside edge. Additionally, the bottle has a degree of curvature on its extreme bottom end, which extends upward from the bearing surface.
Another major part of the bottle is the rim. This is the outermost surface of the finish. Occasionally, it is referred to as the lip. However, this term is somewhat confusing because it can mean several things.
Other parts of a bottle are the shoulder, the ring, the neck, the base, and the finish. Each of these parts has an important role in the overall design of the bottle. With the knowledge of these common features, it should be easier to choose the right bottle for your application.
As an example of a common feature of a bottle, a Bordeaux bottle has a straight shoulder, curved sides, and a slightly tapered base. This type of bottle was traditionally used in Burgundy.
Another type of bottle is the Champagne bottle. It is slightly heavier than a Bordeaux bottle, but the rounded top is easier to stack. Also, the base is wider than the body.
Finally, a barrier is the area that is designed to reduce gas/vapor permeation through the bottle walls. It is also a way to minimize chemical and odor permeation. If the barrier is changed, it is necessary to perform stability studies to determine whether the new resin will affect the properties of the bottle.
The word “bottle” originated in Middle English. It has a doublet of the word “botija” (bottle-like), meaning “ass”. Originally, the bottle was used to give liquids to infants. Eventually, it was used to sell wine. Wine was initially sold in amphoras, and was later put into the bottle at a merchant’s shop.
Choosing a bottle is based on a number of factors, including capacity. Capacity is the amount of space that is provided in a container for a certain volume of product. Generally, this capacity is expressed in ml or ounces.
