Pressure Inspection up to 11 bar or 160 psi
Force technology detects leaks and low pressure in LN2 dosed containers, carbonated beverage containers and aerosol containers. Parallel belts transport the container past a sensor that measures the tension on the sidewall of the container. This action allows the system to measure the pressure inside the container. Utilizing DSP technology, the controller analyzes the measurement and assigns a merit value to each container. If the merit value is outside of the acceptable range, a reject signal activates a remote reject system and the container is removed from the line.
The TapTone FS is designed to handle the higher pressure applications found with many aerosol containers and heavy duty aluminum can/bottle applications. The system inspects 100% of containers at production line speeds. The FS sensor is manufactured with a stainless steel transport system for harsh environments. The reinforced side plates give extra rigidity for high pressure applications and allow for a stable reading with excellent resolution. The system can alternatively be fit with a mid-range or low range pressure sensor for applications that require all-stainless steel construction.
A T4000 HMI or PRO Series User Interface is required for operation of the FS or FSB sensor. A PRO Series interface is required if adding a vision inspection option.
This system is also available with an extended height frame to accomodate conveyor heights up to 1.96 (77 in). Model T4000-FSB.
The system can also be configured with a mid-range or low range pressure sensor for applications that require all stainless steel construction.
