Can Universal’s filling machines fill carbonated drinks?

Carbonated liquids have substantially different characteristics to conventional liquids. They react to changes in pressure and agitation far more than liquids that are not carbonated.

The process of volumetric filling forces liquid into a container and the process of Vacuum Level filling draws liquid into a container by vacuum. Both processes will have an adverse effect on a carbonated liquid, causing it to fizz and overflow.

Most industrial-scale filling systems for carbonated drinks effectively produce a filling environment which is at a higher-than-atmospheric level of air pressure throughout the entire filling and capping cycle. The supply tank, filling system, and bottle are all pressurised with CO2 to an extent which forces some of the CO2 gas to be dissolved within the liquid while preventing it from fizzing and overflowing.

In such an environment, carbonated drinks behave much more like non-carbonated liquids and can be filled by gravity or volumetric filling.

Unfortunately, Universal Filling Machine Company don’t currently offer a system which maintains constant, balanced pressure throughout the filling cycle.
