In-line vacuum test systems for bottles, jars and cans
Ensuring that products meet the highest quality standards is of paramount importance in food manufacturing. Vacuum packaging is a major method of preserving food without resorting to chemical additives. However, if the packaging is defective, foodstuffs may spoil long before the given expiry date.
Vacuum test systems developed by KoCoS audentec GmbH are used throughout the world to check a wide range of containers, such as bottles, jars and tins, in-line during the production process. Non-contact inspection reliably identifies defective containers for automatic rejection.
Highly reliable and easy to use, these processor-controlled test systems are the first choice for many food manufacturers.
INDEC vacuum test systems are turnkey test systems for 100% inspection within the production process. A sensor head scans the closures of all the containers which pass through on the conveyor and measures the cap panel deflection which is dependent on the vacuum inside. The quality of the vacuum within a container and the leak tightness of the closure can be assessed by comparing the measured data from the container under test with the data from a golden sample measured previously.
The INDEC vacuum test device is the central element of the test systems and consists of the processing unit and the control panel.
The sensor head contains the measurement electronics. The connection cable is 5 m long for flexible installation in accordance with site-specific requirements.
The connection unit is the installation interface of the vacuum test systems.
The ejector unit consists of a pneumatic cylinder, a compressed air service unit and adjustable holding brackets for the sensorhead and light barrier.
