More performance when checking full aerosol containers
Replacing lengthy water bath checks and weighing methods: the HEUFT SPECTRUM II ATEX tracks down leaking and incorrectly filled aerosol cans without contact in potentially explosive areas.
Butane, propane or dimethyl ether: it is dangerous when highly explosive propellant escapes from aerosol cans. Furthermore microleaks and leakages threaten the stability of the containers. The HEUFT SPECTRUM II ATEX therefore finds them without contact using innovative laser technology. It also checks the filling quantity of each individual aerosol can and exposes even the smallest deviations.
The X-ray fill level detection has the potential to replace weighing systems which slow down productivity. Just as the laser-based leak detection is able to eliminate lengthy and energy-intensive water bath checks: up to 1,000 aerosol containers per minute can be checked reliably with the HEUFT SPECTRUM II ATEX in-line and rejected specifically if required.
The system can be used without hesitation 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 safely and without any problems in an ATEX Group II / Category 3 risk area. The detections are protected against heat, electrical and electrostatic energy – the risk of life-threatening explosions is averted.
The container tracking of the HEUFT SPECTRUM II platform with millimetre precision ensures that the measuring results are clearly allocated to the product in question – 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.
