PECO INSPX ANNOUNCES EASY BEVERAGE VENT TUBE DETECTION USING FULL CONTAINER X-RAY

San Carlos, California – September 7, 2017 – Peco InspX Corporation, a leading provider of advanced inspection solutions for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries is pleased to announce robust vent tube detection capability in sealed beverage containers using its side-view full container X-Ray inspection systems.

What differentiates Peco InspX’s full container X-Ray system is that it is capable of detecting extremely small pieces of a vent tube thereby ensuring that each individual beverage container is free of foreign material. Furthermore, the latest Peco InspX software algorithms allow accurate detection at a phenomenally false low reject rate. In beverage can applications the false reject rate is less than 1 per million inspected containers. In addition to vent tube detection, Peco InspX full container X-Ray systems can perform fill level monitoring and container integrity inspections on cans at full line speeds (up to 4000 containers per minute).

“One of the challenges in vent tube detection is being able to detect even the smallest pieces of vent tube while at the same time not generating false rejects.  All of our high performance side-view X-Ray systems excel at providing this capability with both steel and plastic vent tubes and in addition to being able to detect other small pieces of foreign material. The same X-Ray system can also monitor the performance of individual filler valves,” remarked Peco InspX CEO Rich Cisek.
