At the 1929 Dairy Show of the B.D.F.A. and Brewers. Exhibition, both held in London, their exhibits definitely created a sensation.

Practical Bottlers were astounded at the almost incredible output of 8,000 pints, hour of their New Power 'Measuring, Bottle Filling and Capping Machine (in cases).

Multifillers are the fortunate possessors of several unique Patents on their machines, including an Anti-Frothing Nozzle, which enables delivery, to be made from the calibrated chamber at high or low temperature, and the fact that all the working faces are under direct spring pressure, justifies their claim that these are the only machines that improve with use.

Multifillers can also deal with the New Paper Cartons, as there are no springs or valves to be operated by either bottle or carton; further, their machines are so constructed that there are no valves or rubber packing employed.

Of particular interest is the letter from the Standards Department of the Board of Trade, an important feature of this being their approval of the use of this machine as a working standard by Weights and Measures Inspectors throughout the country, and it is a remarkable fact that the greatest error over the period of test was only 4.5 grains; in other words, about four drops.
