The intelligent weighing filler
  Precise weighing, perfect filling                                                                  krones Sensometic VPGW

The Sensometic VPGW filler is              Weighing cell at
employed as pressureless filler for      Sensometic VPGW
non-carbonated products operating
by the gravity principle. This filler is
the ideal solution for specifically non-
conductive products because the fill
quantity can be determined at each
filling valve via weighing cell. Senso-
metic VPGW fills different products
like milk, milk-mix drinks, non-carbo-
nated water, cooking oil, or shampoo
into glass or plastic bottles. Thanks
to non-contact filling, this system is   Non-contact filling
especially suitable for microbiologi-            of milk in
cally sensitive products.                   PET containers
All filling process steps can be pro-
grammed easily and individually –
adjusted to the product to be filled
and to the container. High flexibility,
measuring accuracy, and reliability
make this well-proven filler a real
