Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR FILLING CONTAINERS WITH A LIQUID
Abstract:
The invention concerns a method and device for filling with a liquid containers which are closed at one end, in particular collapsible folding packs. The device comprises at least one conveying arrangement for moving the container (1), a supply container (5) for holding the liquid and at least one filler head (2) which is connected to the supply container (5), can be closed by a filler valve and can be moved vertically relative to the container (1) and lowered thereinto. According to the invention, with little structural expenditure, the provision of a flow measuring device (8) between the supply container (5) and the filler valve and of a control arrangement (9) for converting the pulses from the flow measuring device (8) into vertical movements of the filler head (2) and/or of the container (1) allows the relative movement between the container (1) and filler head (2) to be reliably controlled, so ensuring that no foam is produced. The volume of filling liquid flowing into the container (1) is determined by a flow measuring device (8) such that the relative movement between the collapsible folding pack and filler head (2) is regulated.
