The worldwide market leader for on - press light testing in beverage and food end applications
Quasar Light Detection
Quasar heads are twice as sensitive as the previous detectors and 20 times better than the original ELTP light testers. With new internal processor electronics, improved vibration suppression, latest generation high performance sensors and new detector optics.
The latest ELTP detects 1-micron test holes in end panels. Real production leakers due to tears or pinholes in the panel, score, or chuck wall, as well as split rivets, are detected with a higher success rate than competitor systems. Clipped curl and compound blob defects are also detected if they are large enough to affect the light seal around the end. The system even detects some indirect light paths.
beverage and food ends
ELTP has been successfully installed on many types of beverage end conversion press worldwide and also on a variety of presses for food ends (contact Sencon for details). Dedicated systems have also been made for other sizes and non-round shapes according to customer specifications.
Quasar detector heads, light sources and controllers are a drop-in physically fit. With 25 years of product iteration some older systems may require more work. Contact Sencon for a detailed review of your current installation.
