BBULL PULSE

Leakage Inspection for PET Bottles and Cans

GENERAL

Leaking containers and containers with missing pressure are problems which concern directly the quality of the product (missing CO2) as well as the production process.
Thus a reliable detection of these faults is obligatory for every production plant that produces such flexible containers.
BBULL has developed with the inspection system PULSE a totally new principle which detects these faults almost contact free.
The system consists basically of the inspection bridge which will be installed on the conveyor and the inspection software, which is running on a windows-based processing unit.

MODE OF OPERATION

For the inspection, a feeler element is electromagnetically accelerated to the container to be inspected. A highly precise measuring cell controls by multiple measurements the bouncing of the element of the container. Harder containers show clearly measurable differences against softer containers. Differences to the norm will be detected immediately and compared to the adjusted limits. Containers with measurements outside the allowed limits will be marked as faulty and can be rejected.

APPLICATION

The principle is especially qualified for the inspection of
  • oneway PET
  • beverage cans
  • nitrogen dosed containers (missing, or too less dosing)
  • carbonised beverages (missing pressure caused by leakers)
As installation place we recommend an installation post
  • closer (for nitrogen-dosing)
  • after pasteurizer, warmer, cooler (for carbonised beverages)
  • in combination with a fill height, date code inspection
  • in combination with a filler / closer management system

SOFTWARE

  • production statistic /counters (total, good, overpressured, underpressured)
  • graphics / production diagram / histogram
  • auto tracking to compensate process variations
  • fault-history
  • self diagnosis
  • serial-fault detection

SYSTEM CONFIGURATION

  • inspection bridge with measurement element for installation on the conveyor
  • acknowledge trigger
  • height adjustment / spindle
  • Controller (BBULL PC 500 / BBULL PC 5000)
