Alcohol, whether it is a chemical alcohol or a common alcoholic drink in daily life; from the packaging point of view, alcohol is a liquid that can flow freely, VKPAK recommends the use of gravity or overflow filling machines, in addition to piston filling machines are also a good choice. It is worth noting that according to the concentration of alcohol in the material, high concentration alcohol needs to be explosion-proof during the filling process.
For a selection of some of the most reliable alcohol filling machines available, choose VKPAK. We offer liquid filling machines that can meet your facility's needs, along with a variety of other equipment including cappers, labelers, and conveyors.

Brief introduction of alcohol
Alcohol, sometimes referred to by the chemical name ethanol, is a psychoactive drug that is the active ingredient in drinks such as beer, wine, and distilled spirits (hard liquor). Ethanol is only one of several types of alcohol, but it is the only type of alcohol that is found in alcoholic beverages or commonly used for recreational purposes; other alcohols such as methanol and isopropyl alcohol are significantly more toxic.[From Wiki]
Alcohol filling machine selection
Most of the alcohols used in the chemical industry are packaged in plastic bottles or larger plastic containers. And alcoholic drinks are mostly packaged in a variety of glass bottles.
Our wide range of liquid filling equipment is designed to fill many types of liquid products with different levels of viscosity, including various types of alcohol. Our filling equipment can handle alcoholic beverages or alcohol used for other purposes. In addition to liquid fillers, we also carry other types of liquid packaging machines that can drastically improve your production line's performance.
The gravity fillers makes them easy to operate, sanitize, and they are affordable. Gravity fillers provide volumetric time based filling solutions. An elevated tank on this bottle filler holds product until containers are in place under the fill nozzles. The fill tubes or nozzles then open and release product for a pre-set amount of time. Each fill head can be individually timed to allow for an accurate volumetric fill for each bottle. Gravity filling machines are best suited for free-flowing, low viscosity products like water and ink. Special nozzles for gravity fillers can also be used help prevent drips and control foaming with some products.
VKPAK overflow filling machine ensure that liquid-filled bottles on the retail shelf appear to contain the same amount of product, even if there are minor volume differences from bottle to bottle. Overflow Filling Equipment works on the principle of filling to a level inside a container. Even when the internal volume of a container may vary slightly, the special nozzles used on these filling machines ensure that each and every container reach the same level. Overflow fillers are ideal for thin to medium viscosity products and work especially well with products that foam. Overflow filling machines are an ideal solution for glass and other clear containers, like a typical 750ml distilled spirits bottle or clear plastic beverage bottles. By filling to a level, this type of bottle filler insures an even, consistent finish, perfect for shelf display.
Accurate fill volumes can be achieved by piston fillers or fillers using positive displacement pumps. The amount of product dispensed by a piston filler is determined by cylinder diameter and piston stroke length. VKPAK offers metered alcohol filling machines based on either technology. Though piston fillers can handle a wide range of viscosities, they are often the ideal choice for the highest viscosity products as well as products with large particulates.
There are several different things to consider when purchasing alcohol bottling machinery. At VKPAK, we know and understand the liquid packaging industry, and that is why we are confident that one of our wide variety of bottling solutions will work for our customers. From start to finish, you will find everything you need for an alcohol bottle packaging line here.
