Arizona Instrument released the Computrac Vapor Pro XL moisture analyzer, a chemical-free, moisture-specific alternative to Karl Fischer titration. The upgraded heater increases the upper limit for testing temperatures to 300°C and allows for improved control over testing temperatures. The VPXL is also compatible with multiple sizes of sample vials, and is equipped with stepped temperature testing capabilities for enhanced method development.

LIQUID PUMP SOLUTION FOR VOLUMETRIC FILLERS
MULTI-FILL offers a liquid pump option to expand the range of products that can be handled by multi-purpose volumetric fillers. By adding a liquid pump, food processors can retain liquids normally lost in the process of filling products like pico de gallo, prepared salads and fermented vegetables. When product is loaded into the hopper, excess liquid drains off and is collected in a reservoir, then reintroduced during the dosing stage. If a drier product is desired, the liquid can be retained in the reservoir and discarded during cleaning. The stainless-steel liquid pump can be completely dismantled, without tools, for thorough cleaning and sanitation.
FLEX VISION INSPECTION SYSTEM
Mettler Toledo CI-Vision’s V2630 Flex Vision Inspection System is an easy-to-install, easy-to-move and easy-to-use vision inspection system for label, print and package inspection applications on flat, oriented products. The V2630 is designed to be expandable, allowing manufacturers to add cameras to the system as their inspection needs change. It can support up to five cameras and 10 lights, and features the company’s Rapid Fit frame system, which creates efficient frame and mounting brackets for the cameras and lights. The V2630 can be accessed from a separate control terminal, and performs multiple inspections of a target package simultaneously for ID/OD, ovality, gross formation defects, label positioning, label quality, closure application, fill level, 1D and 2D barcodes, graphical presence and quality.

METAL DETECTION SENSITIVITY
Sesotec’s new metal detection technology, INTUITY, inspects packaged and unpackaged products for the smallest metal particles, ensuring product purity with a clean sanitary design. Because this metal detector operates in parallel with variable-multiple frequencies, it provides visual images of the product signal for intuitive use and optimum performance. It’s available on both Rapicon and Sanicon conveyor platforms.
SELF-PROPELLED TRANSPORTER FOR IN-PLANT USE
Enerpac introduced the SPMT600 Series self-propelled modular transporter (SPMT), a 3-axel-per-trailer modular system featuring a minimized height, slim design and remote wireless control operation capabilities. The trailers and HPUs can be configured to a maximum of four trailers in two rows (4x2) or six trailers in two rows (6x2), and can support up to 60 tons of load. Wheel propulsion is established by hydraulic drive motors; all wheels boast individual drive motors as well as a steering and lifting cylinder. Other features include a low-profile, slim design for in-plant operation and Intelli-Drive wireless control system.
Cashco introduced a new Model 1100 sanitary vent, ideally suited for the production of processed foods. This stainless-steel sanitary vent is designed to operate at multiple set points as a breather valve to avoid vacuum or over pressurization inside a tank or piping system. The stainless-steel weather screen prevents debris from entering the tank. And, it comes in 2-, 3-, 4- and 6-inch sizes.
