Patented Quality Control Instrument for Induction Sealing
Many hidden component can hugely impact the performance of an induction liner. This is why it is highly advisable to use a gaugeable validation QA system for induction sealing. During the induction sealing process, there are a number of risks involved that can easily change the speed of the induction machine such as knocking the induction machine out of line, difference in bottle height, adjustment in the conveyor speed and other adjustments.
A well trained and seasoned operator is knowledgeable on the things to watch for throughout the course of the sealing process. This include, but not limited to, correct settings, even or uneven sealing and overheating. He can discern these problems easily; however, such operators are not always available to every business operation. This is where the need for Line Patrolman™ come into being.
Small Changes that Could Affect the Sealing Results
The Line Patrolman™ range of products replaces all subjective judgements with measurable statistics collected together for reference. Some changes that could go unnoticed by an operator may include the following: an alteration in the speed of the product conveyor of up to 10%; 1mm height adjustment of the sealing head; 5° angle change in guide rails. Any one of these changes can make a negative difference on the sealing results even though the induction machine settings show no change at all.
The Line Patrolman™ equipment provides a visual and measured count of the energy that is transferred between the induction equipment and the induction seal. This validation occurs when the Master Sensor is passed along the same path as the products during a production run. The Line Patrolman™ range takes away the guess work on the amount of energy that is being transferred and provides the operator with confidence that the filling line is set to the optimized settings, giving the brand owner peace of mind and the consumer a perfect package every time.
The Line Patrolman™ range has dedicated equipment that meets the requirements of the different filling lines, whether you need the LineMaster™, a flexible system for a variety of bottle shapes and sizes operating at lower speeds, or the SealMaster™, a dedicated system for high speed lines that have minimal variation in the size of the container and closure.
