HEUFT SPECTRUM II ATEX: Fill level and leakage check of aerosol cans
It has what it takes to eliminate the need for lengthy water bath checks and weighing methods: the HEUFT SPECTRUM II ATEX tracks down leaking as well as incorrectly filled aerosol cans without contact and removes them reliably. The compact straight-through system of the new generation can be used in potentially explosive areas for this purpose without any risk.
Butane, propane or dimethyl ether: it is dangerous when highly explosive propellant escapes from aerosol cans. Furthermore microleaks threaten the stability of the containers. Therefore the HEUFT SPECTRUM II ATEX, developed especially for the aerosol industry, detects leaks without contact using innovative laser technology. In addition it can check the filling quantity of each individual aerosol can radiometrically and expose minute deviations reliably. In many applications the X-ray fill level detection has the potential to replace productivity thwarting weighing systems.. Just as the laser-based leak detection is able to eliminate lengthy and energy-intensive checks in the water bath: up to 1,000 aerosol containers per minute can be checked reliably with the HEUFT SPECTRUM II ATEX in-line and rejected specifically or distributed on up to three different lanes if necessary.
This is all achieved with absolutely no risk even in an explosive atmosphere. Because the system is ideally suited for the unrestricted use in areas where a dangerous mixture of air and gas can form – due to a strict separation between the highly automated control unit and the respective inspection modules: whereas the former is outside the hazard zone the latter can operate without any problems and safely in an ATEX Group II / Category 3 risk area. Regardless of whether it is heat, electric or electrostatic energy: the detections are optimally protected and the risk of life-threatening explosions has been averted.
The quadrupled precision of the HEUFT SPECTRUM II platform compared with its predecessor ensures the clear allocation of the measuring results to the product in question during container tracking with millimetre precision – and thus the accurate rejection of every single leaking, underfilled or overfilled aerosol can. The self-explanatory HEUFT NaVi user guidance with audiovisual step-by-step assistance makes the reliable operation of the compact linear machine simply easy.
