The Wipotec SC-S 5020 X-ray scanner is designed for leak detection in filled and sealed glass bottles and jars used in food and beverage applications. In addition to detecting micro-leaks as tiny as 0.1mm, the unit can provide foreign body detection, fill level check, and confirmation of proper screw cap or lid closure. The system enables optimum product handling—even for tall and/or slender containers—at throughput rates up to 60,000 products per hr.
Easily integrated into existing filling lines without the need for opening an additional transport route, the SC-S 5020 features ejectors capable of sorting faulty products into lockable rejection bins, or conveying them upright into a sort lane. The machine comes with a user-friendly operator interface highlighted by a 15-in. color touchscreen that displays real-time inspection statistics.
