A container filling apparatus includes a system for flushing air from a container during the filling of the container with a liquid such as a carbonated beverage. The filling apparatus includes a chamber having a filling valve at the lower end thereof which chamber is adapted to be filled with the beverage and lowered into the container before release of the beverage through the filling valve. A gas passage is associated with the chamber and is controlled so as to direct a volume of inert gas into the container prior to the opening of the filling valve t...
A method of filling a container with a liquid and flushing air from the container during the filling process to prevent the contamination of the liquid by the air, comprising the steps of: confining a quantity of liquid within a chamber, moving the chamber into the container to a position near the bottom thereof, releasing a quantity of inert gas into the container at the bottom thereof to cause said gas to flow upwardly to flush air therefrom, opening a filling valve at the bottom of the chamber to initially release the liquid into the container near th...
