For this particular project, the canister in question was being shipped through UPS, and the company wanted to go above and beyond to ensure nothing would leak in transit.

Meredith-Springfield, New England’s premier blow-molded products manufacturer, has released a Case Study outlining its innovative packaging solution for a client looking to ship dental waste.

When asked by a packaging supplier to find a solution for a water tight package that contained remnants of dental waste, Meredith-Springfield Associates, Inc., found a solution that made its client smile.

The supplier was working for a client that provides the healthcare industry with packaging that prevents toxic emission into the environment.

For this particular project, the canister in question was being shipped through UPS, and the company wanted to go above and beyond to ensure nothing would leak in transit. The supplier reached out to Meredith-Springfield because of their willingness to engineer a design for a new bottle from scratch.

“There’s nothing standard about this bottle,” said Dwight Lowe, Director of Dales for Meredith-Springfield. “We had to take a lot into consideration and make sure that anybody – regardless of the size and strength of their hand – could screw this cap on correctly. It had to fit any person’s capabilities and it had to be secure enough to be transported through the postal service.”

Meredith-Springfield constructed molds and conducted design experiments to create the extrusion blow molded bottles, which are made out of HDPE (high density polyethylene) resin. Because the containers are used for shipping dental waste, they were created with 100 percent leak-proof specialty caps and included inserted liners.
