Milk filling spout

Milk filling spout

Milk filling spout

I  am looking for a spout/nozzle for filling milk/ post set yogurt into a 8/16 fluid ounce container. the container diameter range is 3 to 5 inches. I am looking for a manufacturer of the nozzle. 304 or 316 stainless construction required. The fill time is .6 seconds. We need to eliminate foaming and splashing.


RE: Milk filling spout

What does the connecting device look like that this nozzle attaches to?

Sincerely yours,
Leslie H. Howell

RE: Milk filling spout

As a person who design filling machinery for the beverage industry I can offer the following information. Is the filler a volumetric style filler or gravity filler?  The issues we see with speed of filling usually comes from bottle (container) sidewall design.  In a semi viscous product I would think a "nozzle" that fills the container via the outer surface wall would be beneficial. Not a single flow nozzle directly in the center of the container. The sidewall design virtually eliminates foaming. This is the way fingernail polish and other viscous liquids are filled. If I can be of further assistance please contact me. Happy filling!
