Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9849088A1] Disclosed is a method for filling barrels (4), specially kegs, with liquids, wherein at least one gas is dissolved. The barrel (4) is prestressed using a gas before the liquid is filled. Liquid is then fed into the barrel (4) by means of a filling valve (2) pertaining to a filling station (1) and connected to a feed line (3, 8). During filling, the prestress gas contained in the barrel (4) is evacuated. So as not to impair the product, th eprestress gas in the barrel (4) is prestressed at only a partial pressure which corresponds approximately to the saturation pressure of the CO>2< or N>2< which is dissolved in the filled liquid. Said partial pressure is lower than the maximum product pressure occurring in the feed line (8) prior to the filling valve (2).
