Many fillers can handle both glass and plastic. There are several potential issues, especially at high filling speeds, including that PE containers have very little mass and will need more control (via size parts) when empty than heavier glass. The use of an VFD to control the filler's in feed conveyor speed is a common adaptation, stacking up bottles at the machine in feed 'pushes' plastic containers into the machine. This is best done carefully unless the bottle is straight cylinder! Plastic bottles are easily fed onto a filling line by a centrifugal unscrambler- have an anti-static device added to the unscrambler's out feed.
