A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11926445B2) discloses a filling system designed to distribute filling fluid through a filling nozzle while maintaining a stable fluid interface. The system includes a reservoir holding the filling fluid, at least one filling nozzle fluidly connected to the reservoir, and a set of operating parameters defining various factors such as nozzle radius, fluid density, surface tension differentials, and net acceleration. These parameters are crucial in forming a stable fluid interface adjacent to the nozzle opening, ensuring a continuous and stable jet of filling fluid without breakage during the filling process. The system utilizes fluid properties like viscosity to generate the operating parameters and minimize mass loss due to convective drying within the filling nozzle.

Furthermore, the patented filling system incorporates additional components such as a pump for distributing the filling fluid, a processor to adjust pump parameters for maintaining a stable interface, and a nozzle actuator to control the fluid interface profile. The system is capable of filling containers with the filling fluid efficiently by controlling the pump based on the generated operating parameters. The design also includes features like a narrowed portion in the filling nozzle, specific contact angles, and the formation of bubbles at the stable fluid interface to optimize the filling process. Overall, the patented system offers a comprehensive solution for precise and stable distribution of filling fluid through filling nozzles, ensuring efficient and controlled filling operations in various applications.
