Filling machines installed in plants filling explosive or corrosive chemicals must meet insurance, local safety and electrical requirements. Filling machines installed in sanitary plant locations are constantly wetted and washed down and must be sealed appropriately as well as use washdown rated components. The nature or sophistication level of plant personnel at that location may dictate what type of operating system or filling technology in general would be best suited to that company. The design and choice of the type of control system on a filling system are strongly influenced by plant environment. This is important because the type of controls on a filler are a major cost consideration.
