The Heat Factor: Why It Matters in Blow-Fill-Seal

Bestselling writer Victoria Aveyard once explained why heat is both a blessing and a curse in human life. She said: “The thing with heat is, no matter how cold you are, no matter how much you need warmth, it always, eventually, becomes too much.”

How can you put a sterile liquid that is 2-8 degrees into a plastic container that was formed at 180 degrees, just a second before it’s filled?
