Enercon produces a range of sensors to help ensure that the sealing process is running faultlessly, producing consistent, reliable seals on every container.

Induction cap sealing is one of the last processes that products undergo when travelling from raw materials to shipped product through the factory.

Many of the issues causing poor seals happen upstream, in the filling or capping area: a seal cannot be achieved with a missing cap or a cap with a missing foil.

The capper can also cause stalled bottles under the induction coil where caps are loose or partially fitted or the cap is incorrectly fitted or too high. Issues downstream from the sealer can cause containers to back- up under the sealing head.

Enercon offers a range of sensors that will detect the faults described to give you peace of mind that your sealing operation is running faultlessly.

This system includes:

  • Stalled Bottle and Backlog Detector:
    Jammed containers or stopped bottles that remain under the induction sealer could become a potential safety hazard. The sensor detects these faults and stops power reaching the induction coil.
  • Missing Foil Sensor:
    This sensor detects if a foil liner is present in the cap; if there is no foil in the cap, the container cannot be sealed.
  • High Cap Detector:
    Detects an incorrectly fitted or high cap, which could affect seal quality.

Stack Light Assembly:

  • A visual aid that gives a green light to indicate that the unit is functioning correctly and a red light to indicate that no power is being supplied to the sealing head.

Stack Light Assembly with Sounder:

  • The Stack Light is also available with an 85dB audible alarm. This sounder works in unison with the red light by indicating when the induction sealer is on, but not running correctly. This is useful for production environments which are noisy or where the machine isn’t in direct sight.

Auto Power Control System:

  • An induction sealer’s power setting is set to match a fixed conveyor speed. Therefore, if your conveyor speeds up and slows down, this system will automatically alter your power setting to match the changing conveyor speed. This prevents poor sealing.

Variable Line Speed Control via a 0-10V signal cable:

  • An analogue signal that allows the customer to use their own PLC/control system to adjust the power level on the Enercon.

Machine stand wheels:

  • Stainless steel housed, high compression rubber wheels can be fitted in addition to the standard frame foot pads to allow for ease of unit manoeuvrability. Two brakes are included to allow the induction sealer to be locked into position.

Spare Parts Kits:

  • Various kits available on request.

IQ/OQ Kit:

  • Enercon Industries will provide the documentation for IQ/OQ.

To keep your machine in perfect working order it needs a bit of TLC from time to time, and after almost a year, operational settings may require adjustment, or you may have new staff training requirements.

To keep you sealing at your full potential and using the machine at its most efficient, we’ve offer an annual service inspection and operator training package. One of our qualified service engineers would visit your site once per annum to:

  • Thoroughly check over the unit and clean the cooling fans
  • Check all the control functions
  • Report any issues which may require further attention
  • Review what you are sealing and advise on induction coil choice
  • Re-set your “operating window” and teach your operators how to do this for maximum seal quality at minimum power consumption
  • Offer a short refresher course in basic operation and safety training (max 2hrs)
  • If you sign up for the annual service package before your warranty expires, we will increase your warranty by an additional 6 months.

This system includes:

  • Stalled Bottle and Backlog Detector:
    Jammed containers or stopped bottles that remain under the induction sealer could become a potential safety hazard. The sensor detects these faults and stops power reaching the induction coil.
  • Missing Foil Sensor:
    This sensor detects if a foil liner is present in the cap; if there is no foil in the cap, the container cannot be sealed.
  • High Cap Detector:
    Detects an incorrectly fitted or high cap, which could affect seal quality.

These options can be installed individually, however if the full system is purchased, you gain the following extras:

  • Reject Bottle Counter:
    Gives the number of fault signals that have been detected due to missing foil or caps.
  • Total Bottle Counter:
    Counts all containers that have passed the input sensor.

Stack Light Assembly:

  • A visual aid that gives a green light to indicate that the unit is functioning correctly and a red light to indicate that no power is being supplied to the sealing head.

Stack Light Assembly with Sounder:

  • The Stack Light is also available with an 85dB audible alarm. This sounder works in unison with the red light by indicating when the induction sealer is on, but not running correctly. This is useful for production environments which are noisy or where the machine isn’t in direct sight.

IQ/OQ Kit:

  • Enercon Industries will provide the documentation for IQ/OQ.

In addition to the above options, the following are available for the Super Seal™ Touch and the Super Seal™Max.

Remote Control & Monitoring:

  • Provides the customer with an Ethernet and serial interface for the control and monitoring of the induction cap sealers via their own PLC/control system.

Automatic Start/Stop:

  • The automatic start/stop function activates the machine when a bottle is detected and will return the machine to standby mode when no container has been detected after a pre-set time period.

EXTENDED SHELF LIFE

GlaxoSmithKline was struggling to hermetically seal an oval-shaped Horlicks container with a ‘snap-on’ cap. The company contacted Enercon Industries for their expert advice and a solution.

STRONGER SEALS

“Enercon has created a unique tunnel coil that allows for even distribution of energy over the neck of the container to achieve the perfect seal without overheating”

EXTENDED SHELF LIFE

“Enercon’s machines are the only induction sealers we can use to seal our gourmet culinary sauces because of the different style cap. We are also able to change the sealing heads very easily, which allows us to seal different sized products without losing production time.”
