HEUFT SPECTRUM II VX
Finding fill level and closure faults just as easily as their causes: fill management based on the HEUFT SPECTRUM II.
Ensuring the highest product quality with maximum filler and closer efficiency – with the HEUFT SPECTRUM II VX this is simply easy! Proven functions for checking and inspecting full containers safeguard the quality of the products. The system uncovers losses in filler and closer performance before this can impair the efficiency of the complete line using an integrated quantifying system, serial fault detection and continuous monitoring. The high degree of automation of the HEUFT SPECTRUM II platform and the self-explanatory HEUFT NaVi user guidance take fill management to a new level.
Fill level detection
Finding underfills and overfills reliably: the right technology for each application.
Too little, too much and exactly right: the HEUFT SPECTRUM II VX can be perfectly equipped with different detection modules for a precise fill level detection.
Special camera technology checks the filling quantity of transparent bottles 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. An integrated quantifying module converts the results of the individual fill level measurements automatically into the actual fill value and calculates the average fill volume.
Ensuring tightness: different possibilities for a closure check.
Effective, safe and precise: different technologies for a closure check can be integrated into the system due to its modular construction. It can check the presence, position, completeness, integrity and brand affiliation of the closures precisely with special sensor, camera or ultrasonic technology depending on the requirements. Thus it provides the best results for every application and safeguards the tightness of the bottle sustainably as well as the quality of the product contained in it.
Filler and closer management
Finding faults and exposing the causes: monitoring the filler valves and the closer heads.
Detecting, monitoring and locating: finding faulty filling and closure faults reliably is one thing. However it is just as important to uncover their causes at an early stage for the sustainable safeguarding of product quality and productivity.
The HEUFT SPECTRUM II VX takes over the monitoring of the filler valves and closure heads for this purpose. It monitors their performance continuously and provides exact statistical data. Malfunctions which can cause serial faults are therefore identified in good time. The system exposes defective valves and closure heads even before they completely fail. This permanent filler and closer management system is a valuable tool for preventive maintenance.
Checking production quality regularly: exemplary sampling.
Controlled, individual and representative: the HEUFT SPECTRUM II VX carries out exemplary sampling for internal quality assurance purposes. Cross-sectional sampling is possible due to the freely definable rejection of the desired number or a whole series of bottles in succession.
These can be selected separately for targeted sampling in order to check individual filler valves or closer heads specifically. In addition it is also possible to define particular conditions such as minimum speed in order to take representative samples under standard production conditions.
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.
Burst bottle management
Detecting and competently managing burst bottles: effective protection against contamination due to glass splinters.
Detection, reaction and prevention: the potential danger of glass bottles which burst in the filler should not be underestimated. The HEUFT SPECTRUM II VX registers burst bottles 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 an optional forced underfill can prevent them from being inadvertently returned to the production flow. Another safety factor is provided by the shower function which cleans the areas which could be contaminated with glass splinters.
