Piston Fillers: Frequently Asked Questions

filamatic piston fillers and pumps

Piston fillers and pumps provide wonderful precision for liquid filling products.

Countless products we use on a daily basis rely on piston fillers for creating their accurate and appealing appearance. From salsas and syrups to lotions and shampoos, a piston filler may have filled the product you use. If you are a manufacturer tasked with filling liquid or semi-liquid products and want to ensure consistent and precise fills, piston pumps and fillers from Filamatic can help you achieve those great results. If you aren’t familiar with these machines, read on for an introduction to what they can offer.

Are Piston Fillers Automated?

Like most liquid filling devices, piston fillers may be automated or semi-automated. The best choice will depend on your specific production needs. Automatic piston fillers are best suited for large productions that require conveyor belts and a high bottle-per-minute output. Semi-automatic versions often come in tabletop versions and can be upgraded in the future.

Can They Handle High-Viscosity Liquids?

Piston fillers are well-equipped to handle high-viscosity liquids. Due to their propulsion mechanism, they can fill a container of dense liquid efficiently and without error. You won’t have to worry about blockages that can delay or stop your production.

Can You Use Different Containers?

Yes, your piston fillers are not limited in what they can do. You can use them to deposit liquid products into containers of all sizes and materials. This means you can use the same machines to fill a variety of products. You can explore your options to figure out what system works best for your facility and production needs.

Can You Use Different Nozzles?

Yes, you can change and adjust the right nozzles according to your needs. The best nozzles to use are based on the product and container you are filling. For example, you may use a small tip nozzle for filling hot sauce into a thin, narrow jar and a wider nozzle for filling lotion into a wide jar.
