Summary for Patent: 6,328,928
Title: Method and for preparing container for filling, and method of filling container
Abstract:A method and a machine for preparing and filling containers with a product, for which method and machine the containers are grouped in rows at right angles to the transporting direction with the container openings facing upwardly and aligned at a distance from one another. The containers are swiveled, row by row, into an at least approximately vertical position with the container openings facing downwardly and rinsed jointly on the inside with a cleansing agent. The rinsed containers are dried on the inside in a first drying station and, after passing through the first drying station, are charged into a sterile environment. After a row of containers has entered the sterile environment, the containers are sterilized on the inside by means of a sterilizing agent and, in a second drying station, residues of sterilizing agent are expelled from the sterilized containers. In the event that the containers are to be filled with a carbon dioxide-containing and/or a nitrogen-containing material, the containers are wetted subsequently on the inside with sterile water and, after being dried, are swiveled in a second turning process into a filling position with the container openings facing upwardly. The containers subsequently are filled with the specified amount of product and, in a sealing station, sealed at least provisionally with a stopper part, after which the sealed containers are discharged from the sterile region.
