What to Look for in a Liquid Filler

If you are new to manufacturing and packaging, it can be overwhelming to determine which equipment is best for your operation. Among the equipment you may need, liquid fillers come in many different types and specifications. Here is what you should look for in a liquid filler.

Sanitation

Depending on the type of product that you are packaging, sanitation can be very important. Your filler should be easy to clean and maintain, even during operation. The best material for liquid fillers is stainless steel, which is both durable and sanitary.

Floor Space

If you have a smaller production operation, you may need to make size considerations. Your liquid filler should be large enough to handle your desired volume, yet small enough that it doesn’t take up unnecessary space. If your liquid filler can be easily moved out of the way during other production activities this can also be helpful.

Production Requirements

Of course, you want to make sure that the liquid filler you choose will be able to keep up with your production requirements. Most of the liquid fillers that you will find are either semi-automatic or automatic, allowing for many packages to be filled in a very short amount of time. If you have a smaller scale operation, you may not need a large machine that handles a very wide volume.

Type of Product

The liquid filler you choose will need to be able to handle your type of product. Some machines are better suited to thick substances such as honey, while others are better for free flowing products like water. It is also a consideration how you will fill packages, either by weight or volume.
