Liquid Filling Machines

When it comes to liquid filling machines, there are several different types available on the market. Each type of machine has its own unique features and benefits, making it important for manufacturers to understand their options in order to choose the right machine for their needs.

Piston Filling Machines

Piston filling machines are primarily favored for their ability to handle thick products like sauces and creams. Employing a piston and cylinder mechanism, these machines efficiently fill bottles, containers, and various types of packaging with a precise amount of viscous liquids. The piston draws the thick product from a reservoir or hopper and dispenses it into containers as it moves within the cylinder. This mechanism ensures consistent filling volumes, making it ideal for industries requiring handling viscous products notably in food , cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals. Icon Equipment offers customizable piston filling machines tailored to the specific needs of customers, providing reliable and efficient solutions for thick liquid filling applications.


Volumetric and Net weigh Filling Machines

Volumetric and net weight filling machines are two types of liquid filling equipment commonly used in industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals. Volumetric fillers operate by measuring and dispensing a predetermined volume of liquid for each filling cycle, ensuring consistent fill levels regardless of the product’s density or viscosity. These machines are ideal for applications requiring precise dosing and are often used for filling containers with fixed volumes, such as bottles and jars. On the other hand, net weight fillers dispense liquid based on weight, typically using load cells or scales to measure the exact weight of the product as it fills each container. This method allows for accurate filling of containers to a specified target weight, making net weight fillers suitable for products sold by weight, such as beverages and chemicals. Both volumetric and net weight filling machines offer advantages in terms of accuracy, efficiency, and versatility, catering to the diverse needs of different industries and product types.

Peristatic fillers

Peristaltic fillers, also known as peristaltic pump fillers or tube filling machines, are utilized in industries like pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and biotechnology. Operating on the principle of peristalsis, these fillers propel liquid through a flexible tube via rollers or pinchers, ensuring accurate and precise dispensing without contact between the product and pump components, thus maintaining high levels of hygiene. They are versatile, accommodating a wide range of liquid viscosities and handling delicate products gently. Peristaltic fillers are favored for their ease of cleaning and maintenance, with tubing that can be quickly replaced and pump components easily sanitized. Commonly used for small to medium-sized batches, these fillers provide reliable and flexible liquid filling solutions while upholding cleanliness, precision, and product integrity in various industries.

Gravity Filling Machines


Operating on the principle of using gravity to fill containers, these machines are particularly suitable for low viscosity liquids such as water, milk, and juices. The liquid product is stored in a controlled reservoir or tank positioned above the filling machine, and when a container is placed beneath the filling nozzle, the valve in the reservoir is opened, allowing the liquid to flow down and fill the container. Often designed in rotary configurations, gravity filling machines ensure constant pressure and consistent filling volumes, enhancing accuracy and reliability. Customizable to meet specific industry requirements, these machines offer ease of operation and maintenance, making them a cost-effective solution for filling bottles, jars, cans, and other types of containers with liquid products.

Icon Equipment, with decades of experience in designing, building, and maintaining such machines, provides reliable and tailored gravity filling solutions to meet the unique needs of each customer.
