Liquid Filling Machines
Speedway has a long history in manufacturing liquid fillers with many of the original machines still in service more than 30 years later.
When deciding on which liquid filler is best for your application, there are a number of factors that must be considered such as:
A/. Container- size (dimensions and volume), bottle opening, shape
B/. Desired production rate in bottles per minute (BPM)
C/. Product- viscosity, special characteristics such as does it foam when filled, is it caustic or acidic, is it flammable, or is the product abrasive?
Speedway provides three types of liquid fillers: overflow filler, metering pump filler and piston filler.
