Abstract (en)

Method and device for filling plastic bottles whereby a dispensing/suction nozzle (1) is inserted into the mouth (2) at the top of a bottle. The nozzle (1) dispenses a liquid to fill the bottle and at the same time sucks out the air contained inside the said bottle. As the bottle is filled, the nozzle (1) has a frustoconical surface (6), which is made of steel, that fits tightly against an edge of the mouth (2), forming an air-tight seal around the said mouth by virtue of which seal the pressure inside the bottle can be less than the pressure in the external environment. <IMAGE>
