No matter how well a liquid filling machine is designed, incorporating electric heat to help control fluid viscosity is an important variable in most applications. Viscosity defines a fluid's resistance to flow. The higher the viscosity of a liquid, the thicker it is and the greater the resistance to flow. Conversely, lower viscosity means thinner liquid and less resistance to flow. Temperature will affect the viscosity of most materials. Heating up a fluid can reduce the viscosity, allowing the fluid to flow faster. Learn more by reading our blog!
