Thermo Scientific Versa checkweigher controller offers optional filler valve
Thursday, 31 August, 2017, 08 : 00 AM [IST]
The Thermo Scientific Versa checkweigher controller now offers an optional filler valve monitoring capability that monitors the behaviour of upto 16 filler heads and determines if any individual head is not performing correctly.

Food processing companies use checkweighers to monitor individual filler head performance in real time. This helps them improve performance and increase profitability.

“With the cost of food ingredients increasing, it is becoming more critical for food processors to make sure they are not giving product away,” said Rick Cash, checkweigher product manager, product inspection, Thermo Fisher Scientific.

“Conversely, they also need to ensure that underfilled containers are not entering the marketplace,” he added.

“By adding a filler head monitoring capability to their checkweighers, they can see what is happening in real time and make adjustments before the fill levels become problematic,” Cash said.

The checkweigher controller screen provides at-a-glance status of all the filler heads, highlighting any critical situation, high and low weight ranges and average and standard deviations.

Statistical information and warning status for individual filler heads also can be communicated to remote systems connected by the system’s Modbus protocol.

The Versa controller is used to control the chain, slack-belt, and powered weigh table frames in the Versa checkweigher series.

Further, alarms can be set for high average or standard deviation, high range, low accepted per cent and high consecutive rejects.

This capability is ideally suited for products that are filled in a liquid or viscous state, including condiments (such as mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup), sauces, peanut butter, dairy foods, personal care products, etc.
