DS Smith Releases New Front-Push Dispensing Tap
Worldwide Dispensers North America, part of the DS Smith Plastics Division, has fully commercialized the Mustang front-push dispensing tap for bag-in-box and standup pouch applications. The dispensing tap has the lowest oxygen transmission rate (OTR) in the industry, making it the ideal solution for extending the shelf life of bag-in box wine and other oxygen-sensitive products.
Oxygen is a major cause of reactions associated with the spoilage of food products. The Mustang front-push dispensing tap has superior OTR performance which prevents oxygen from entering the package, therefore slowing down the oxidation reaction and prolonging the life of the product.
The tap has a refined design and ergonomic wings which make it easy for consumers to dispense. The front-push tap offers a smooth, uniform flow and no-splash, or post-drip, controlled dispensing. The tap is also available with and without a tamper evident (TE) cap or aluminum foil seal. The TE cap and foil seal blocks the tap in a closed position until removed by the end-user, ensuring product integrity.
It’s available for many bag-in-box and standup pouch markets, including wine, edible oil, juice and water. The tap is also available in a variety of standard colors or can have a custom color configuration.
