Volumetric Measurement Principle

The FillTrac Filler Valve Monitor uses either an X-ray or Gamma radiation source and a receiver. The volume in the container will change the radiation count proportionally to the vertical fill level. The radiation count recorded will be translasted into a volumetric measurement (i.e. milliliters, ounces) based on the setup parameters established during the calibration process.

Fill Level Monitor

In addition to monitoring filler valve performance, the FillTrac operates as a Fill Level Monitor to ensure proper fill level in every container. Rejects for low fill level can be rejected separate from the containers sampled using the Automated Sampling option.

Cap Inspection

Using additional sensors mounted in the inspection area, the FillTrac Filler Valve Monitor can inspect for high, cocked, or missing caps. Containers with a cap fault are subsequently rejected using one of Peco InspX wide range of rejection devices.

Sampling Option

Automated or manual sampling can be enabled that’s either time or count based. A single container can be sampled to help troubleshoot faulty valves, or an entire rotation of the filler or seamer head can be sampled.


Automated Printing

Our automated printing option allows fully automatic printing of detailed sampling information on each container, which eliminates the need for an expensive takeaway conveyor to properly sequence samples.
