        It is an automatic rotary machine, with electronic equipment based on micro-processor AND&OR. The test is made in a bell closing hermetically, inside there are the closed bottles (full or empty), then the emptiness is made, and the evolution of pressure is calculated during a given period of time. Rejecting the bottles/packaging with a leakage at its output.

        CHARACTERISTICS

        Mechanical characteristics:
        • Kit made in stainless steel and fairing in PET.
        • Rotary bearing in stainless steel with ball bearing, axial radio and centralized coupling greasing.
        • Rotary group of continuous movements by hips, synchronized bells with headstocks, designed to create a tight camera around the bottle.
        • Machine supply by a worm gear screw through a conveyor belt with inlet/outlet stars.
        • Refusal unit for defective bottles.
        • Motor/inverter 0,75 HP and reduction drag motor, allowing to select machine speed and performance.

        Electronic equipment based on micro-processor AND&OR, allowing :
        • Automatic calibration of leakage detection.
        • Sensitivity 0.1 mbar (leak detection until 0,15 mm diameter, in 1L, independent from the bottle shape and temperature, and atmospheric conditions).
        • Selection of the bottle quality required (Premium, Normal).
        • Touch panel (Display) for parameters programming and visualization, production indication (bottle/hour), tested bottles number, good and bad bottles number, quantitative test result (leakage).

          The system allows the adaptation to different bottles’ height without having to change the height of any conveyor of the line, which reduces the time for a change-over.

          REC
          Motorized belt conveyor.
          It is usually installed after the blower with a gripper take out system (with or without turning system).
          In cases where there are not enough meters to adjust the conveyor’s height to different bottles’ height, the cordon conveyor (TAC) might be added after the belt conveyor (REC + TAC).
          It can also be complimented with a mask if the bottles are unsteady while placing them over the belt conveyor (REC + MASK).
