for Flexible Plastic Containers
Brochure / Specs (.pdf)
The TapTone 4000-F inspects 100% of containers at production line speeds. The system will detect leaks and low pressure in liquid nitrogen dosed containers and carbonated beverage containers. When combined with optional sensors, this system will also perform fill level inspection, cap inspection, and label detection.
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 Optical sensor is used to measure fill level of water based products in glass and plastic containers. The sensor utilizes a special emitter/receiver infrared wavelength tuned to the absorption band of water. The beam is powerful enough to pass through most types of plastic and glass containers but will not pass through water based liquids.
