Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9849089A1] 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 statio (1) and connected to a feed line (3, 8). During filling, the prestress gas contained in the barrel (4) is evacuated. In order to guarantee economical and ecological product processing, the prestress gas in the barrel (4) is prestressed at only a partial pressure whic corresponds approximately to the saturation pressure of the CO>2< or N>2< which is dossolved in the filled liquid. The flow rate speed is measured in the product feed line and is directly adjusted by adapting the volumetric flow rate of said product.
