CT2211 - Micro Leak Detection System

Cascade Technologies have developed a range of integrated on line Leak Detection systems (CT2211) capable of detecting and rejecting leaking aerosol cans on production lines up to 500 cans/minute (cpm). The CT2211 system provides 100% leak testing of the can by sampling air from around the full height of the can using an air sampling arch fitted to the production line. The system is contactless, thereby ensuring there is no product damage. Cascade offers four Leak Detection system variants, Bronze (up to 90 cpm), Silver (up to 140 cpm), Gold (up to 220 cpm) and Platinum (up to 500 cpm). By offering four variants, our customers to cost-effectively implement on line Leak Detection system in accordance with their line speed requirements. With a minimal footprint (less than 1metre of free line length) the CT2211 system can be easily installed into both new and existing production lines.

System highlights:


> Integrated detection, control and reject

> Regulatory compliance

> Varied line speeds, up to 500cpm
