More precision when identifying minute leaks: the detection accuracy of the HEUFT squeezer QL is considerably higher compared with other HEUFT devices for checking the tightness of plastic containers.
(PM) Brugbrohl / Munich, 10.09.2009 - The new HEUFT squeezer QL which will be showcased at drinktec 2009 exhibition in Munich (Hall A5, Stand 524) is ideally suitable as a sustainable quality inspection for particularly sensitive products such as dairy drinks, liquid food and enteral food.
The leakage check even detected microscopically small faults reliably every time during tests. Therefore the already impressive performance which the HEUFT squeezer QA (www.heuft.com/lang/en/heuft-squeezer-qa-leakage-check_142.html
) and the HEUFT squeezer QS have to offer was again surpassed: the detection accuracy has quadrupled with regard to the size of the hole.
The HEUFT development team has achieved this quantum leap by using a new belt drive. It applies a precisely controlled amount of pressure to the containers which pass through freely, with belts which are three times as long as those of the other two device versions, in order to identify leaks using a comparative fill level measurement in a compressed and non-compressed condition. The result: more time for a considerably higher detection accuracy.
A servo control system adjusts the height and the passage width of the belt which is no longer divided and the position of the measuring bridges for the fill level detection completely automatically. This makes it possible to inspect larger plastic containers and eliminates misadjustments during a brand change due to operating errors. The belt adapts itself independently to the changed container shape at the push of a button. All the brands which have been read in can be reproduced completely automatically.
The new HEUFT squeezer QL also provides tried and tested functions for an optical closure inspection as do the other two device versions. This new development is particularly suitable for checking plastic containers which are filled with extremely sensitive contents precisely for leaks. Because even minute leaks can seriously endanger the integrity of the products and with that the health of the consumer in this
area. Above all the fillers of dairy products, liquid food and enteral food could be interested in the HEUFT squeezer QL. See its outstanding performance for the first time at the drinktec 2009 exhibition for yourself.
