      Method of operation

      First the glass bottle is pressed on and pressurised. The filling process will start as soon as the same pressure prevails in the ring bowl and the bottle. Two different filling speeds guarantee optimum flow. If the liquid flowing in touches the probe integrated in the filling tube, the valve closes. After a settling phase, the pressure in the head space of the glass bottle is reduced via a snifting valve and the filled product exits the machine.

      Clever: Two gas channels – double hygiene

      The containers are pressurised and snifted via two separate gas channels. This separation prevents liquid from escaping from the filled container into the pressurisation channel, providing considerable advantages with regard to filling stability and hygiene.
