How does the Alfa Laval thousand-litre filler work?

The bag neck is manually inserted into the filling head to fill 5–1,000-litre bags. The automatic cycle of opening, filling and closing then begins. During this cycle, the temperatures of the steam jets and the filling valve are carefully monitored and controlled. 

For 1,000-litre bags, the product enters the bag with the filling head in the down position. This solution uniformly distributes the product, especially a viscous product, within the bag, helping prevent any folding of the corners. 

When using the automatic bag feeder (ABF) for 3–20-litre bags, the sequences such as bag loading, cap opening, filling and cap closing are fully automatic.
