Common Questions About Filling Machines

complete linesThere are a lot of different liquid filling machines out there, and it can be difficult to choose the right one for you. New manufacturers or producers may have difficulty determining their needs and what filler will work best for their product. If you have questions about filling machines for your business, here are some common answers.

What filling method is best for my product?

Different fillers operate in different ways, and not all of them are appropriate for all projects. Gravity fillers and piston fillers will fill your containers by volume, while an overflow machine will fill by level. Net weight machines, of course, fill by weight. Which method you choose depends on what type of product you have and what type of bottles or containers you will be using.

How automated are the filling machines?

Some filling machines are designed for a lower volume usually expected from smaller companies and manufacturers. These low capacity liquid fillers could be less automated and may require more interaction from a line worker. If you have a higher volume, you can get liquid filling machines that are almost completely automated.

Can the liquid filler handle my bottle sizes?

Most filling machines are able to handle just about any size or shape of bottles or containers. If you offer your product in different sizes, you’ll need a filling machine that is easily adaptable. Most fillers can be adjusted without tools to meet your packaging needs. However, if you range from very small to very tall bottles, you may need a custom filler solution.
