LINE ANALYTICS AND OPTIMIZATION
Closely monitoring filler and capper performance keeps high speed line operations smooth. FILTEC systems can identify underperforming or broken valves and capper heads within seconds. Immediate warnings prevent wasted product, container damages, and line failures. Analytics provide detailed foundations for line planning and optimization.
Fill and pressure levels, especially in carbonated or pressurized containers, can be a crucial indication of product integrity. FILTEC's finely tuned vision systems can isolate multiple inspection parameters simultaneously, detecting fill level down to less than a milliliter.
FILTEC's PLD, or Pressure Leak Detector, is a sensor-based system that detects bottle pressure as an indicator of container integrity without the risk of adding any additional pressure to the container itself.
Incorrectly applied caps and broken tamper bands can cause pressure to leak from the container and can cause the spoilage of certain products.
FILTEC equipment can also inspect for cap color, ensuring that branding remains consistent throughout the production process.
Large objects may remain stuck in returnable containers after the washing process and float hidden in the necks of filled containers. In dark liquids, clear plastics and bits of paper may be difficult or impossible to see, but with powerful strobes FILTEC equipment can pick them out easily.
