FT System a leading manufacturer of inspection equipment for the food and beverage industry announced today that it has released its newest fill level inspection system, the CL700-HF, high frequency fill level system for glass and plastic containers. The system is designed to mount easily over an existing production conveyor. The ergonomic design provides easy access to the control panel and supports fast tool-less change overs. The High Frequency fill level system can be used on still products including water, juice and tea, wine and spirits. The system can also be used on carbonated beverages.
“The CL700-HF fill level inspection system with foam compensation is an extension FT System’s long history of innovative product development. The market demanded a non-radiation emitting fill level inspection system for products with foam in the head space and FT System CL700-HF meets that demand”, said Rick Reardon, General Manager of FT System North America. “This type of foam compensation technology is unique to FT System. Prior to its release we performed and extended evaluation on a high speed carbonated soft drink line. The customer determined the fill level measurement of the high frequency system outperformed their current X-ray inspection”.
The technology is unique in that it not only measures the liquid level in a container but it also measures the height and density of the foam in the head space. The system will calculate the liquid equivalent of the foam and determine an aggregate fill level.
Features of the FT System CL700-HF High Frequency Fill Level Inspection System include:
Over fill and under fill inspection on single sensor
Consecutive and sequential reject alarms
Self diagnostics with alarm output
Multilingual user interface
Able to support multiple production lines from single controller
Filler valve monitoring to isolate fill level defects by individual filler valve
Filler valve sampling to periodically sample containers by filler valve
