Advanced Leak Detection for Flexible Containers

Dual Sensor Compression Technology detects and rejects leaking and damaged flexible containers at production line speeds up to 1.52 m/sec (300 ft/min). The system is designed with dual parallel belts suspended over the customer’s existing conveying system. As the container passes through the system, the dual parallel belts apply force to the sidewall of the container. This action compresses the headspace of the container which allows a comparative measurement to be taken at both the infeed and the discharge of the system. Comparing readings on the same container at the infeed and discharge of the system eliminates the effects of typical product and container variations.

The TapTone Dual Sensor Compression (DSC) system is designed to inspect a wide variety of flexible containers for micro leaks. The design incorporates our patented dual sensor technology and high speed compression belts for improved accuracy and container handling. The system was designed for harsh environments. When combined with optional sensors, this system will also perform fill level inspection, cap inspection and label detection.

This system can be configured with low profile belts for small containers or with TDLC sensors for containers with foil or film seals.

A User Interface is required for operation of the DSC sensor. The DSC sensor is compatible with the T4000 PRO Series user interfaces..
