The working principle of beer filling machine

Posted by sere on March 13th, 2020

Thefilling machine is developed around the filling process. Its working principle is: clean bottles from the bottle washing machine are fed into the bottle feeding screw of the filling machine by the bottle conveyor belt, and sent to the rotary table via the bottle feeding star wheel. The bottle supporting cylinder is raised and raised. The bottle mouth is tightly pressed under the feeding port of the filling valve under the guidance of the centering device to form a seal. After the bottle is evacuated, the back pressure gas (CO2,) in the storage tank is flushed into the bottle. When the gas pressure in the bottle is equal to the gas pressure in the storage tank, the liquid valve opens under the action of the liquid valve spring. At this time, the beer is guided by the umbrella-shaped reflection ring on the air return pipe. It is automatically filled into the glass bottle along the bottle wall, and the CO2 in the glass bottle is replaced back into the liquid storage tank through the air return pipe. When the liquor rises to a certain height When the return air duct is closed, the wine will stop automatically. Then close the liquid valve and the gas valve, and drain the pressure gas at the bottleneck to prevent the spurt of the aerated wine liquid when the glass bottle descends. This completes the filling process.

的 Classification and selection of liquid filling machine

1. Classification of liquid filling machine

Liquid filling machine can be divided into normal pressure filling machine, pressure filling machine and vacuum filling machine according to the filling principle.

Atmospheric pressure filling machine is based on the self-weight of liquid for filling under atmospheric pressure. This type of filling machine is divided into two types: regular filling and constant volume filling, which are only suitable for filling low-viscosity liquids such as milk and wine.

Pressure filling machine is filling at higher than atmospheric pressure, and can be divided into two types: one is that the pressure in the liquid storage tank is equal to the pressure in the bottle, and it is filled by the weight of the liquid flowing into the bottle, called Isobaric filling; the other is that the pressure in the liquid storage tank is higher than the pressure in the bottle, and the liquid flows into the bottle by the pressure difference. This method is mostly used in high-speed production lines. Pressure filling machine is suitable for filling liquid containing gas, such as beer, soda, champagne, etc.

Vacuum filling machine is used for filling when the pressure in the bottle is lower than atmospheric pressure. This filling machine has a simple structure and high efficiency, and it can adapt to a wide range of viscosity of materials, such as oils, syrups, and fruit wines.

的 Selection of filling machine: Reasonable selection of filling machine is an important way to ensure product quality and improve economic benefits. Generally speaking, the production should be closely followed, and as far as possible, a filling machine with good quality, high efficiency, simple structure, convenient use and maintenance, small size and light weight should be selected. Filler knowledge When selecting a filler, the following principles should be followed.

原则 The principle of serving the production process. First of all, a suitable filling machine should be selected according to the properties of the filling materials (viscosity, foaming, volatility, gas-containing, etc.) to meet the production process requirements. For example, for strong aromatic liquor, in order to avoid loss of volatile aromatic substances, a cup-type or atmospheric filling machine should be generally used; for fruit juice liquids, in order to reduce contact with air and ensure product quality, generally use Vacuum filling machine. Secondly, the production capacity of the filling machine should be matched with that of the processing and packaging machinery before and after the process. High productivity and good product quality. The level of productivity directly reflects the production capacity of the production line. So the higher the productivity, the better the economic benefits it produces. In order to improve product quality, a filling machine with high equipment accuracy and high degree of automation should be selected. However, the price of the equipment has also increased accordingly, increasing the unit cost of the product. Therefore, when selecting a filling machine, the relevant factors should be comprehensively considered in combination with the production process requirements.

宽 The principle of wide process range. The process scope of a filling machine refers to its ability to adapt to different production requirements. The wider the process range, the higher the utilization rate of the equipment and the realization of multiple uses of one machine, that is, the same equipment can be used to fill multiple materials and multiple specifications. Therefore, in order to meet the production requirements of various varieties and specifications in the beverage and beverage industries, a filling machine with as wide a process range as possible should be selected.
