An Introduction to Bottom Up Filling
For those of you looking for a clean, efficient and cost effective filling solution for your liquids, a bottom up filling system on a volumetric filling machine is a perfect tool for when you need to fill containers with foamy products. The foamy products we are talking about include liquids such as milk, body wash, detergents and other chemical foamy liquids.
A bottom up filling system minimises the risk of foam and frothing that can happen when liquids are dropped into a container from a height. Using the bottom up filling method, the nozzle of the bottom up filling system drops through the spout of a container and down to the bottom of the container before proceeding to fill the container with shampoo, body wash, detergent, cleaning products or other foamy liquids.
