Light Tester for Easy Open Ends
ELTP - End Light Tester Package
100% light testing for leaks on easy open ends on the conversion press
- Reduced spoilage and rejects
- Beverage and food ends 112 to 603 / 44.5mm - 153mm diameter
- Other sizes and non round shapes are possible
ELTP can normally be installed on any press that makes round food or beverage ends from 112 to 603 / 44.5mm - 153mm in size using belt pocket transfer. Other sizes and non-round shapes can also be considered for installation with specially designed adaptations.
Highly sensitive leak detection
By testing 100% of production on the press, the End Light Tester Package (ELTP) delivers a significant improvement in product quality for a low investment and with minimal disruption.
Experience shows that most types of end defect are detected, including leakers due to tears or pinholes in the panel, score and chuck wall, as well as split rivets. Clipped curl and compound blob defects can also be detected if they are large enough to affect the light seal around the end.
System always ready for testing
The latest models of ELTP are fitted which a special Flash Control feature which switches off the lighting arrays if the detectors are flooded with light due to very large holes, or because no end is in the pocket. This allows the detectors to recover in time for reliable testing of the end in the following pocket. Older versions of ELTP can be upgraded to take advantage of these improvements. Contact Sencon for details.
Non round and outsize ends
Systems for non-round and outsize ends are made to customer specifications. Mechanical installation packages available for most beverage end conversion presses. ELTP has also been successfully installed on some food end conversion presses.
