BEVERAGE FILLING TECHNOLOGIES
Volumetric (or piston) Filling Systems

Volumetric (or piston) filling system guarantees that the container is filled with an exact quantity of product, having a maximum tolerance of +/- 1,5 cc using 1 litre cylinders, regardless of the product's thickness and of the differences in actual capacity between containers of the same type and size. Therefore piston filling is the correct choice for applications where accuracy of actual volume contained in the bottles is important, or in case of filling dense products into plastic containers.
The filling system consists in two steps: during suction, the product passes from the tank to the metering chamber through a three-way valve which measures the product thanks to its piston-based operating principle, according to a preset quantity. To empty the chamber, the three-way valves activates a pneumatic valve controlling the piston: the product is pushed out of the cylinder into the container. It is possible to adjust the filling speed in the top portion of the container, where the neck must be filled slowly to prevent foaming or spillage.
