The stations are positioned sealable in adjustable apertures in the tunnel above the contents conveyor, with one station being in working position and the other in cleaning position. The stations are moved between positions by aperture adjustment. Each consists of a two-part moveable unit with a trough section (5) accommodating the filler pipe (3) in cleaning position, and a passage part (6) holding the filler pipe working position. The pipe passage part has a removeable closure cap (8) when the trough section is under the filler pipe.
