      Probe filler for filling carbonated and non-carbonated water into glass bottles

      The intelligent probe system

      • Precise determination of fill quantity with a probe
      • Perfect flow characteristics through two filling speeds
      • Turbulence-free switching between speeds thanks to diaphragm valve technology
      • Low-foam filling via swirl insert in the valve
      • Closed CIP circuit
      • Hygienic design
      • Electropneumatically controlled filling valve functions

      Field of applications

      • Filling of both carbonated and non-carbonated water into glass containers, with and without conductivity 


      • Up to 78,000 containers per hour

      Functional principle of the valve

      The glass bottle is pressed on first. 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. The valve closes if the liquid flowing in touches the probe mounted on the filling tube. 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. 

      Conductivity > 50 µS/cm
      Viscosity < 10 mPa·s
      Pulp ≤ 0.4 mm/proportional < 10 % 
      Fibres 1 x 5 mm/proportional < 5 %
