Affordable, High-Quality Labeling, Filling & Packaging Solutions for Small Business

The entire system has a weight of approximately 3 pounds. The frame measures 3 inches in width and 9 inches in length. It's incredibly easy to set up and operate.

My father once owned a small business where he had to manually fill bottles. I understand how tedious and messy this process can be. He was never able to find a cost-effective and efficient filling machine suitable for small businesses like his.

I believe I understand your requirements, and this is the solution. Our manual piston fillers can fill products with a wide range of thicknesses.

These thicknesses can vary from very thin, like water, to very thick, like cream. If your product is liquid, the Handy Filler is up to the task. You can use our "thickness test" to determine your product's viscosity.

This piston filler, with its smooth and effortless lever action, requires less exertion than you might expect. Gravity aids the flow and does a significant part of the work for you. You can install this filler for either right-handed or left-handed use.

We tried hard to give small businesses the fillers they need, at a low cost and with good quality. If you're unhappy with your purchase you can take advantage of our 30 day money back guarantee.

The Thickness Test

Try using a plastic straw to see if it's difficult to suck up your product. If it smoothly ascends the pipe, it will adequately fill. If the straw collapses when you try to suck liquid through it, it's too thick for this type of drink. We have other models that can accommodate thick pastes and lotions.

We provide all the essentials you require to start filling immediately straight from the box.

We supply the manual piston filler with food-safe lubricant, additional O-rings, Hex Key for adjusting volume, an Anti-Dribble Valve, and three feet of silicone tubing.

Handy Filler Filling Systems

Manual Filling Machines

Zap Labeler has taken on the mantle of providing top of the line filling systems that were formerly provided by the Handy Filler company. My father originally invented the Handy Filler and his cousin, Jon owned and operated it for years. Looking to retire he called us up and asked if we'd like to take it over for him. We jumped at the thought and started getting our ducks in a row to take up where Jon left off.

This Manual filler is ideal for filling a few thousand bottles in production runs. With the low price point you're sure to recoup the cost of this liquid filler in time savings very rapidly.

This machine fills things using a lever. It can withstand temperatures up to 140 degrees F. It is durable and made of stainless steel. Therefore, it will have a long lifespan. All of our bottle fillers have pistons and valve ends made of FDA Approved Polymers that resist corrosion.

This device is capable of filling a broad range of products, from liquids to lotions and creams. Its polymer tie rods make disassembly and cleaning a breeze, and it's also safe for the dishwasher.

The machine dispenses the exact amount needed to fill your container, ranging from 1 oz to 8.5 oz per stroke. It can fill 600 to 1000 containers per hour, depending on how thick your product is. Filling a 16 oz container is equally fast using two 8 oz strokes or a bigger 16 oz per stroke machine.

A desktop bottle filler, also known as a bottle filling machine or a semi-automatic bottle filler, offers several benefits for businesses and individuals involved in bottling and packaging liquids. Here are some of the advantages of using a desktop bottle filler:

Bottle fillers are designed to streamline the filling process, making it faster and more efficient compared to manual filling. This is particularly beneficial for small to medium-scale operations where automation can save time and labor costs.

The machine ensures a consistent fill level for each bottle, reducing variations and ensuring uniform product quality. This is crucial for maintaining the reputation of the product and meeting regulatory requirements.

Automatic or semi-automatic bottle fillers can help minimize product wastage compared to manual filling, where spillage or overfilling might occur.

Many bottle fillers are adjustable, allowing you to use them with various bottle sizes and types. This flexibility is especially useful if you have multiple products or bottle formats in your production line.

Using a bottle filler can enhance the overall hygiene of the filling process, minimizing direct contact between the product and personnel, thereby reducing the risk of contamination.

In the long run, using a bottle filler can lead to cost savings by optimizing the filling process and reducing labor requirements.

As your business grows, you may need to increase production capacity. Bottle fillers can be a scalable solution that can adapt to higher volumes without a complete overhaul of the bottling process.

A consistent fill level and neat filling process contribute to a more professional and aesthetically pleasing product presentation, which can positively impact consumer perception.

In larger bottling lines, bottle fillers can be integrated with other machinery, such as cappers, labelers, and conveyor systems, creating a seamless automated production process.

By automating the filling process, staff can focus on other essential tasks, ultimately saving time and allowing more attention to be given to quality control and overall production efficiency.

It's important to note that the specific benefits of using a desktop bottle filler may vary depending on the brand, model, and features of the machine. When considering purchasing a bottle filler, it's essential to assess your specific needs and production requirements to find the best fit for your operation.
