Two distinct bottling technologies are available for semi-automatic and fully automatic bottle filling machines: volumetric and vacuum-level filling. 

Manually operated bottle filling machines tend only to fill volumetrically whereas semi automatic and fully automatic bottle filling machines can be either volumetric or vacuum level fillers.

Volumetric bottling machines

Manual bottle filling machines use a piston within a cylinder to force liquid into the container.

These normally have a pneumatically powered pump mechanism, set to fill containers with the required volume of liquid, fed from either a floor-standing container or a machine-mounted hopper.

Containers are positioned below the filling nozzles and a foot pedal switch to start the filling process.

Volumes between 5ml and 25-litres can be handled by volumetric bottling machines and up to 150 containers per minute can be filled, depending on the fill volume, liquid viscosity and level of machine automation.

Vacuum level filling machines

Vacuum bottle filling machines use the rim at the top of the container to form an airtight seal around the filling nozzle.

This airtight seal creates a vacuum within the bottle which draws free-flowing liquids from a supply tank into the bottle, via specially designed nozzles. These nozzles have a small hole on the side which is connected to a small internal tube.

The height of this hole in relation to the top of the container during filling determines the level of liquid dispensed. The small hole in the nozzle scavenges excess liquid from the filling process and collects it in a receiver for reuse.

Vacuum level bottling machines fill containers to the same height each time, rather than dispensing the same volume. This is particularly useful for glass bottles which will be side-by-side on display shelves in shops. Glass bottles vary in capacity quite a lot, yet vacuum-level filling ensures the level each bottle is filled to is the same, giving a consistent appearance from one bottle to the next. Vacuum level bottling requires rigid containers which won’t collapse under a vacuum.

Vacuum-level machines have virtually no moving parts, making them incredibly reliable, and can fill up to 120 bottles per minute depending on the container type, number of filling heads and level of automation.

Bottles are simply positioned with their top in contact with a sealing ring around the nozzle. The container will start to fill as soon as an airtight seal is made and stop when the pre-determined fill height is reached.
