The terms "short tube" and "long tube" refer to the length of the filling tube that is a part of the filling head.  As the name suggests, long-tube filling systems have tubes that extend down to the bottom of the bottles, and hence they fill the bottles from bottom to top.  Short tube filling systems fill by having the liquid flow down the sides of the bottles (on the inside, of course).

Pipe (tube) dia is more important for container mouth dia.

Most fillers with pre-evacuation are short tube.  But not all shot tubes have pre-evac.  Long tube and pre-evac can produce excellent bottle air specs, short tube/no pre-evac fillers are ofthen very poor.

I think you my be asking what the benefits are.  Short tubes offer an opportunity to aerate your product .  This benefits bottle conditioning where necessary.  Long tubes reduce aeration.
