Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9700224A1] A filling machine for filling containers (10) with liquid is provided with one filling valve (25) for each container (10), the filling valve being operated by a control device (19) by means of a drive pulse (Z). To improve the accuracy of the quantity of fluid (M (ist)) actually transferred to the containers (10) with reference to a notional filling quantity (M), it is proposed that the control device (19) should sum partial volumes ( DELTA M) determined from measured pressures (P1) of the fluid, time intervals ( DELTA t) between individual pressure readings and a pressure/through-flow characteristic curve of the filling valves (25). Once the sum of the partial volumes ( DELTA M) has passed a threshold filling quantity (M (max)), the control unit (19) stops the drive pulse (Z).
