This type of filler is also known as a Vac filler. It has a stainless steel rod with a specially designed "Plunger Washer" attached to it. It fills the pen in downward motion of the plunger when vaccuum is released towards the end of the downward movement.
This is a Sac based filling system with a button which operates a pressure bar. A Silicone Sac is attached directly to the section. The button is hidden underneath a blind cap on the barrel. The button itself can be made in Bronze or the same material as the pen.
This type of filler has a clear acrylic pump button hidden underneath a blind cap on the barrel. A stainless spring is used for keeping the button in its normal position. For this filler to be effective, the feed must have a breather tube installed in it.
