Micro-canning machines are an efficient and cost-effective way to package and preserve your beverages. It is one of the key features to consider when selecting a micro-canning machine is its filling method.
There are two main types of filling methods used in canning machines: counter pressure filling and atmospheric filling.
Counter pressure filling is a process in which the can is filled with your beverage under pressure. This ensures that there is no oxygen present in the can. This is important for maintaining the quality and shelf life of your product, as oxygen can cause off-flavors and spoilage.
Counter pressure filling is particularly useful for carbonated beverages, as it allows you to maintain the carbonation levels in the can. It’s also a great option for preserving the flavor and aroma of your product, as it helps to prevent oxidation.
On the other hand, atmospheric filling involves using atmospheric pressure to put the beverage in the can. This is a simpler and less expensive filling method, but it may not be as effective at preserving the quality and shelf life of your product.
When deciding which filling method is right for your business, it’s important to consider the type of beverage you are producing and your production goals. If maintaining the quality and shelf life of your product is a top priority, counter pressure filling may be the best option. However, if you are looking for a more cost-effective filling method, atmospheric filling may be a good choice.
Ultimately, the decision will depend on your specific needs and goals. We can help you can make an informed decision about which machine is the best fit for your business !
