Part 4 of our series on the unique HEUFT X-ray technology highlights its wide range of applications when filling beverages – above all but not only with regard to the increasingly important full container inspections.

关于独特的HEUFT X射线技术系列的第4部分强调了其在灌装饮料时的广泛应用——尤其不仅仅是在日益重要的全容器检查方面。


These were searched for in vain along beverage filling lines for decades. But in the meantime there are more and more:  X-ray systems for inspecting full containers are very much in trend!  They are increasingly becoming the norm not only with the big players.  Even small and medium-sized manufacturers can hardly avoid solutions which detect safety risks in and on the beverage container directly after the filling process.  No wonder!  After all they want to supply their customers with a perfect end product in documented top quality, prevent liability cases and product recalls effectively and safeguard the brand image sustainably.  And those who want to continue to see their goods on the shelves of the large retail chains in the future are also under tremendous pressure regarding certification.



Using the best available techniques is required in order to ensure all this and to meet the requirements of standards such as IFS Food, BRC or DIN EN 22000. For many years these were limited to modular systems for an empty container inspection from HEUFT.  But now new full container inspectors for a wide variety of products, packaging, applications and installation positions define the state of the art.  Especially when their X-ray technology combines full detection power with an unequalled low radiation exposure.

为了确保所有这些,并满足如IFS食品、BRCDIN EN 22000等标准的要求,需要使用现有的最佳技术。多年来,这些系统仅限于用于HEUFT空瓶检测设备的模块化系统。但是,现在新型的满瓶检测机用于各类产品、包装、应用和安装位置,明确了目前的发展水平。尤其是低辐射X射线检测技术与全面的检测能力相结合。


Extremely precise base inspection


They close a security gap not be underestimated.  Because the risk of contamination has only been finally averted when the beverage packaging has been sealed.  Whether burst bottles in the filler with glass splinters flying around, nuts and bolts falling off during the container transport or high density foreign objects entering the beverage packaging together with the product:  a great deal can still happen between the empty bottle inspector and the capper!  The ideal HEUFT eXaminer II solution is now available with further optimised pulsed X-ray technology for every application from the fully equipped premium system to the extremely space-saving entry-level device in order to identify such containers in-line:

他们缩小了一个不可低估的安全间隙。因为只有当饮料包装被密封时,污染的风险才最终得以避免。无论是灌装机中玻璃碎片飞溅的爆瓶,还是容器传输过程中螺栓螺母的脱落,亦或是包装和产品中的高密度异物:从空瓶验瓶机到压盖机之间仍会发生很多事!理想的HEUFT eXaminer II解决方案现在可提供进一步优化的脉冲X射线技术,适用于从配备齐全的高级系统到极其节省空间的入门级设备的每个应用,以便在线识别此类容器:



The HEUFT eXaminer  II XOS is the first choice for the high-precision complete inspection of full transparent bottles made of glass or PET.  It identifies glass splinters, metal fragments and all other high density foreign objects at the bottom of the container particularly gently and precisely with cleverly arranged X-ray strobes which are only activated for a maximum of a thousandth of a second when a bottle is actually in the detection area – even if they are covered by the base dome, embossing or other material structures.  The same applies to containers with defects and chips.  In addition the fully equipped flagship of the range incorporates sophisticated optical technologies in order to also find mould, hair or even transparent film in the bottle – both on the base and when floating freely in the drink.

  HEUFT eXaminer II XOS是对全透明玻璃瓶或PET瓶进行高精度全面检查的首选。它可以识别容器底部的玻璃碎片、金属碎片和所有其他高密度异物,特别是使用巧妙排列的X射线闪光灯,当瓶子实际位于检测区域时,X射线闪光灯最多只会被激活千分之一秒——即使它们被底部穹顶,浮雕或其他材料结构覆盖也不受影响。同样适用于有缺陷和碎片的容器。此外,该系列设备齐全的旗舰产品还结合了先进的光学技术,以便在瓶子中找到霉菌、头发甚至透明薄膜——无论是在瓶底还是漂浮在饮料中。



Simply more transparency



Camera-based procedures cannot be used when the packaging material is completely opaque.  The required transparency is simply lacking.  Therefore a more compact system which operates solely with the pulsed radiometric measurement available exclusively from the technology leader is best suited for opaque primary packaging materials such as beverage cans made of tinplate / aluminium or even dairy bottles made of plastics such as HDPE:  the HEUFT eXaminer II XAC full container inspector with the hygiene-optimised HEUFT CleanDesign offers the same outstanding detection performance for a detailed examination of the container base as the fully equipped premium system.

当包装材料完全不透明时,不能使用相机程序。所需的透明度不够。因此,技术领先厂商独有的唯一靠脉冲辐射测量运行的小型系统最适合非透明初级包装材料,如马口铁/铝制成的饮料罐,甚至是塑料制成的奶制品瓶,如高密度聚乙烯:HEUFT eXaminer IIXAC 满瓶检测设备和卫生优化的HEUFT CleanDesign,与完全装备的高级系统一样,为详细的瓶底检测提供了相同出色的检测性能。



A double X-ray flash sidewall inspection can also be integrated into the modular system of the new generation which fully covers more than 360 degrees of the container volume for products with a higher consistency such as liquid food and smoothies:  solid foreign objects which can cause difficulty in breathing and serious injuries if swallowed are therefore also found by it when gravity has not pulled them down to the bottom but they are still stuck in the middle of the rather paste-like product.  It also identifies safety-relevant packaging defects such as finish chips or cracks in the container wall reliably.



An optimal entry



For those who do not have enough room along their line for the HEUFT eXaminer II XACand are instead looking for a particularly slim entry-level solution with careful and precise pulsed X-ray technology for a reliable full container inspection directly at the conveyor should have a closer look at the brand new HEUFT eXaminer II XSThe compact solution originally developed for the food industry also provides excellent results during the in-line examination of full drinks cartons or stand-up pouches filled with liquid products.

对于那些在他们的生产线上没有足够的空间安装HEUFT eXaminer II XAC,取而代之地在寻找一种可直接安装在输送带上的小巧的带有细致脉冲X射线技术,能可靠的进行满瓶检测的初级解决方案,那么应该近距离了解HEUFT eXaminer II XS。最初为食品工业开发的简洁的解决方案在对满瓶饮料纸箱或灌装有液体产品的直立式包装袋进行在线检测时也提供了极好的结果。



The complete coverage of the total volume is possible with two optimally positioned X-ray strobes in extremely space-saving casings for such "simple" packaging without complex base structures.  One illuminates them from the base to the middle at an angle from below for this purpose.  The rest is covered by the second module which emits its X-ray pulses directly and horizontal to the fill line. Foreign objects and defects are thus visible everywhere regardless of their position.  At the same time the pulsed X-ray technology carries out the first fill level detection which can be further refined by the uncomplicated integration of additional X-ray measuring bridges.



Maximum detection reliability



Therefore it goes without saying that due to all these advantages the powerful full container inspection of the new HEUFT eXaminer II generation, which can also be implemented in a top-down arrangement depending on the application, is also increasingly becoming the norm when filling drinks.  No wonder! Its unique X-ray flash modules generate crystal clear images without motion blurs even in the high-speed section with minimum radiation which are processed in real time by the HEUFT reflexx²image analysis with learning ability.

因此,毫无疑问,由于所有这些优势,新一代HEUFT eXaminer II的强大的全容器检测,也可以根据应用程序自上而下地检测,也日益成为饮料灌装的规范。难怪!其独特的X射线闪光模块,即使在辐射最小的高速段,也能在无运动模糊的情况下生成清晰的图像,并通过具有学习能力的HEUFT reflexx²图像分析进行实时处理。



However they cannot completely replace an empty bottle inspection.  After all it is always better and more cost-effective to detect contaminated or damaged packaging and to remove it from the production flow before the valuable beverage has been filled. Therefore corresponding systems remain indispensable particularly along returnable lines. Especially when, like the HEUFT InLine II IXS, they demonstrably increase the detection reliability when identifying optical barely perceptible glass splinters in residual liquid at thebottle base by up to 29 per cent – with pulsed X-ray technology available exclusively from HEUFT!

但是,它们不能完全取代空瓶检测。毕竟,检测被污染或损坏的包装,并在灌装贵重饮料之前将其从生产流程中去除,总是更好、更具成本效益的。因此,相应的系统仍然是必不可少的,尤其是在可回收线上。特别是像HEUFT InLine II IXS一样,它们明显地提高了检测可靠性,当它们在识别瓶底残留液体中的光学难以察觉的玻璃碎片时,检测可靠性高达29%——使用HEUFT独家的脉冲X射线技术。
