The Thermo Scientific Versa checkweigher controller from Thermo Fisher Scientific, Minneapolis, now offers an optional filler valve monitoring capability that monitors the behavior of up to 16 filler heads and determines if any individual head is not performing correctly.
The checkweigher controller screen provides “at-a-glance” status of all the filler heads, highlighting any critical situations, high and low weight ranges and average and standard deviation. Statistical info and warning status for individual filler heads also can be communicated to remote systems connected by the system’s Modbus protocol. Further, alarms can be set for high average or standard deviation, high range, low accepted percent and high consecutive rejects.
This capability is ideally suited for products that are filled in a liquid or viscous state, including sauces, dairy foods and more.
