Safety features: Options for filling in hazardous areas Zone 1 as well as additional safety features such as inerting and overfill shut-off.

Integration and cleaning: Easily integrated into existing production lines and options for improved cleaning and special cleaning equipment to ensure consistent product quality and production hygiene.

Suitable filling processes for canister filling

Below bunghole filling

Specially developed for closed containers where the liquid is supplied through a bunghole. This variant is suitable for non-foaming and uncomplicated liquids and ensures precise filling.

Above level filling

Suitable for uncomplicated, non-foaming products. With this method, the liquid comes out of the dosing element above the liquid level, ideal for open and closed (bunghole) containers.

Below level filling

This method is suitable for foaming products or if explosive gases can be released during filling. The liquid exits below the liquid surface, which prevents foam and electrostatic charges in flammable materials.
