Information about a filling machine and our service
We are a mediator for machines used in the paint- and chemical industry. There are many machines (e.g. filling machines, dispensing machines, dissolvers etc.) involved in the production process of paint and chemicals. Every machine is crucial and important in this process.
After you returned the filled-out questionnaire to us, we will forward it to different eligible suppliers. They in turn will prepare a quotation that exactly match the filling machine you have requested. You can compare all quotations and can decide to proceed with one of the suppliers.

Filling can be subdivided into two main technologies: volumetric and gravimetric. Volumetric filling machines are based on a self-priming cylinder. A piston moves in a cylinder and the stroke length and diameter of the cylinder determine the filling volume. Gravimetric filling machines weigh the exact weight with a filling valve that is positioned above a scale. Scale in combination with the filling program controls the filling valve, resulting in a weighing process. The most useful method for your company depends on several factors for example product characteristics or desired filling amount.
The paint industry requires semi-automatic and fully automatic filling machines to fill large batches in cans / buckets (sales packaging). The chemical industry has a wide range of applications: for example all kinds of cleaning products, oil, solvents, etc.
These applications require a different approach e.g. cleaning substances can start to foam during above level filling especially if the filling machine fills too fast. To prevent this foaming, a sub-level filling lance is required in order to fill the product below level.
Typically there is an information report provided by the chemical or paint producer. This document contains information about the product chemical profile e.g. health effects of exposure or other potentially dangerous substances and about the safe working procedures when handling the products. This report is a MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) and important information for the filling machine manufacturer. Even though a MSDS report is available, the buyer of a filling machine has to consider about many more specifications, such as:
- Machine dimensions
- Type of packaging (Bottle, Drum, IBC, Can, etc.)
- Filling volumes
- Subdivision of different filling volumes (..% – .. ltr.)
- Largest and smallest quantity:
- Number of fillings per minute
- Electrical equipment
- Explosion proof (Zone/ IP)
- Available facilities
- Storage of the components
