Full container check
Detecting quality defects reliably: compact full container check.
Reasonably priced, compact and versatile: the HEUFT basic is a control system which checks the fill level, the labels and closures of all types of filled containers among other things. Different equipment variants and measuring technologies make the full container check, manufactured in series production, a real all-rounder which can be adapted exactly to on-site requirements.
Fill level detection
Finding underfills and overfills reliably: the right technology for each application.
Too little, too much or exactly right: the HEUFT basic can be perfectly equipped with different detection modules for a precise fill level detection.
It checks the filling quantity of transparent bottles with infrared technology highly precisely. The high frequency measurement provides exact results for all types of non-metal containers – and compensates foam which may be present in the course of this. This reduces the false rejection rate on filling lines for beer or carbonated soft drinks. X-ray technology for determining the filling quantity exactly is used if the containers are opaque.
Checking the tightness: special procedures for different closures.
Missing, incorrectly positioned and leaking: the HEUFT basic identifies closure faults such as these reliably. Different procedures are used for this: it checks the presence and position with special sensor and optical technologies. Therefore missing closures or closure elements which are too high are noticed immediately. The same applies to deviating closure curvatures which draw conclusions about the internal pressure and consequently the tightness of the containers.
Paying attention to the labels: specific examination of the presence.
Collar, body, neck or wrap-around label: there must not be any missing! The HEUFT basic checks whether this is really the case by means of special sensors which make use of the different reflection characteristics of the container surface and the label. Therefore it is immediately clear when one or several of them are missing. The sensors can be directly integrated in the labeller. A presence check is also possible whilst the containers are being transported on the conveyor as an alternative.
Serial fault detection
Noticing the repeated occurrence of defects in good time: locator for safeguarding productivity.
Specific, in good time and sustainable: the HEUFT basic prevents faults from becoming serial faults and impairing the productivity of the complete filling and packaging line. For example an integrated locator function records when a particular filler valve regularly underfills in good time.
A switch-off pulse is emitted when the number of faulty fillings exceeds a certain, individually adjustable threshold value. Therefore malfunctions can be rectified before they can threaten the safety and quality of complete batches and cause rejection rates which are too high. The HEUFT basic also notices recurring closure and labelling faults in good time and prevents these from going into production and thwarting the efficiency and productivity of the whole line by means of a stop signal.
Preventing recalls: the reliable rejection of faulty containers.
Fast, careful and accurate: highest precision when detecting faults is only effective if the products in question are also removed afterwards. The single-segment and multi-segment rejection systems of the HEUFT rejector series deal with this both precisely and carefully.
Optional additional functions
Detecting even more: extensions to the range of functions.
The range of functions of the HEUFT basic with its modular design can be extended at any time. Thus the HEUFT sonic module checks the tightness of metal closures highly precisely. The optionally available bottle burst detection registers bottles which burst in the filler immediately and draws the right conclusions: not only are these rejected but also adjacently filled bottles and those which have been filled during the subsequent circuits with the same valve. Therefore products contaminated with glass splinters cannot reach the customer. Furthermore the following can be integrated without any problems: a reject verification system which ensures that each container identified as being faulty is really removed.
Control board with multi-segment display
Working without any problems: intuitive operation.
Cross-language, clear and very easy: it is not difficult to operate the HEUFT basic reliably. All the menus and information are displayed on the clearly arranged multi-segment display as icons independent of the respective language. They can be selected and retrieved at the push of a button without any problems. The user finds his way around quickly. Special access codes protect certain functions and adjustments. This ensures that they are only carried out by authorised users.
Removing faulty products: the right rejector for all cases.
For example, the single-segment HEUFT flip and HEUFT mono rejectors as well as the multi-segment HEUFT DELTA-FW and HEUFT DELTA-K systems are ideally suited for the reliable rejection of faulty full containers.
