The 3 Primary Considerations When Selecting Your Filling Equipment

Consider these factors before choosing your liquid filling equipment.

Whether you are a growing, young business or expanding your operations, your liquid-filling machinery can make a significant difference in your ability to meet the demand for your product. It is essential that you select the right machine type for your needs and work with a reliable supplier such as Filamatic, who can provide you with the support services you require. There are a few things to consider when selecting the filling equipment ideal for your facility.


How automated do you want your production and packaging line to be? If you handle a small number of products, you may be able to go with simpler filling machinery that requires manual operation by a small staff. However, most filing equipment is at least semi-automatic, so some operation is necessary, but the filling is done by precise, automatic machine functions. If you have a large production volume or expect to grow your production rates in the near future, using full automation may be best. This system requires no manual filling as your containers are moved along a conveyor system to be filled, capped, and prepared for shipment.

Production Volume

What filling equipment you need really depends on your production volume. If you have a high production volume and a wide distribution net, you will need to ensure your machinery can meet your demands. If you have a low production volume, a smaller and simpler machine can be used and can easily meet your expected output. If you attempt to use smaller machines on large productions, you will lose time and overwork the machine, which will cost you more money overall.

Your Product

The product or products you produce can also have an effect on the type of filling equipment you require. If you have one or more products that are liquid, cream, or gel, you will need fillers to fill your jars or bottles. Regardless of your product, you will also need the ability to package your completed bottles and containers for distribution. If you produce several products, you will want to install filing equipment that can be easily adjusted for each product. If you are unsure which machine may be best for your needs, the liquid filling specialists at Filamatic can help you explore the many options on the market.
