Home » Fillers - Can Filling » Can Piston
Liquid can fillers are similar to liquid gravity fillers in that gravity can fillers utilize the pressure of gravity on a liquid product to fill the product into the can. Gravity can fillers plunge a nozzle into the can that has a gasket that forms a seal with the top of the can. The nozzle on the liquid can filler then opens to allow product to flow from the product hold tank.
Once the liquid reaches a level above the filling ports in the nozzle, the head pressure above the liquid in the can is equal to the pressure above the liquid in the product hold tank. Once this occurs, the liquid stops flowing into the can. As the nozzle is raised out of the can, the nozzle closes to prevent more product from entering the can.
