FILTEC Launches Empty Can Inspection (ECI) System Ahead of Brewers Association Craft Brewers Conference
ECI detects damaged cans before they are filled, reducing downtime and increasing production line efficiency for craft brewers and other beverage industry professionals
Los Angeles, March 21, 2019 – FILTEC, the leading global provider of in-line inspection solutions for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, announced today the launch of its empty can inspection (ECI) system at this year’s Craft Brewer Conference in Denver, April 9-11.
FILTEC’s ECI system inspects and identifies defects in empty cans before they are filled or seamed, reducing downtime and increasing production line efficiency for brewers and other beverage industry professionals alike.
“The beverage industry, and especially craft brewing, prides itself on quality and safety, but also runs on tight margins and efficiency,” said Christian Beck, Senior Product Manager at FILTEC. “Our empty can inspection system will be a brewer’s best friend thanks to the mitigated risk and increased efficiency it brings by only allowing pristine cans to make it through the system’s intensive screening process.”
FILTEC’s ECI has a compact machine footprint that is easy to install and capable of inspecting for flange, inner sidewall and base type defects. The new system, which takes up less than half a meter on production lines, is incredibly easy to integrate into existing production lines and can inspect at speeds up to 2,400 cans per minute.
ECI joins a suite of FILTEC in-line inspection products aimed at mitigating risk, increasing efficiency and protecting product quality and integrity for the craft brewing industry. Other inspection products and systems that FILTEC offers for craft brewers include FILTEC 3XR & 3G (fill level), AURATEC (pressure and leak detection), QUADVIEW (cap and crown defects), 3CI (case inspector), INTELLECT+ (user interface) and, OMNIVISION3 (empty bottle inspection).
