  • Patent number: 5794668
    Abstract: A procedure for adjusting a filling jet of flow-controlled automatic filler machines. The task is of providing an inventive solution, ensuring an even, clean supply of the medium volume flow via the filling pipe into the container. The task is solved by determining and storing the speed of a filling jet emerging from a filling pipe. The actual speed values of a volume flow emerging from a pump is measured with a speed sensor and the thus gained values are compared in order to adjust the speed of an emerging filler jet. At the same time the flow output of the pump is changed until the stored set value of the filler jet speed at the volume sensor corresponds to the speed of the medium volume flow measured at the speed sensor. Only then the filling process into the vessels is started.

  • Patent number: 5787943
    Abstract: A procedure and a device for dosing free-flowing media irrespective of its viscosity into containers. It is based on the task of providing an inventive solution for filling machines of the procedure, allowing the dosing of free-flowing media into containers within an exact time regime. The task is solved by the filling media moving through the filling pump, flowing passed a flow sensor in a filling media flow, with the flow speed being measured and transmitted to a regulator in which the set value is stored which is then compared with the actual value measured in the flow sensor. To adapt the actual value to the set value, the output of the filling pump is changed until the actual and set values of the flow speed correspond. With the thus exactly determined flow speed, the filling flow of the filling media arrives at the starting sensor arranged at the outlet opening of the filling pipe and activates the sensor by flowing through a sensor section.
