INSPECTO Automation AG, Switzerland / Sniffers for 5 Gallon bottles,Visual Inspection, PET  Recycling Inspection

You are here: Sniffer Canis 420 with 4 Head
Canis 420 linear and 420 Side-Shift
Canis 420 has four heads

The machine is available
  • Pure Contamination Detector Option C
  • Contamination detector combined with leak detector
  • Side-shift bottle feeding from side instead of linear
  • Automatic adjustement for different bottle size
  • Machines are equipped with remote supervision
  • Roller conveyor for upright bottle rejection
Canis 420 has four heads. This machine is made for fast lines up to 3000 Bottles per hour. The combined contamination and leak machine s a bit slower. The Canis machines are robust and need little maintenance. The INSCO sensors need no maintenance. The sensors shall be changed every year. Even then the anual  cost for sensors are below 0,6% of machine cost. Of course, it is a quality inspection machine, that works best under clean conditions.

The Leak detection can be switched of temporarily for more production speed

Canis 420-C Linear
Pure contamination detection with four heads
Production speed up to 2600 Bottles per hour (43 bpm)
Machine with four heads equipped with eight semiconductor sensors
Robust construction little maintenance

Detection: Contaminations such as gasoline, diesel, benzene, used motor oil, kerosene, naphthalene solvents: Acetone, toluene, colour solvents, ammonia NH3, soft drinks, alcohol, fermented fruit juice
Sensitivity for gasoline : 10 micro litres in a 20 litre bottle; 0,05% ammonia; 0,1% isopropanol, 3 micro liters toluene in a 20 l container

Canis 420-CL Linear
Contamination detection combined with leak detection
Production speed up to 2000 bph (33 bpm)

Machine with four Heads:
Leak detection with compressed air: Detects cracks and holes corresponding to a hole  0,5 mm in diameter and smaller. Most Cracks are much wider, since the air pressure opens cracks.

The contamination detection measurement is made with an Electronic Nose System INSCO. It has the same sensitivity as Canis 420C.

Canis 420 is available with an electric height change to adapt to different bottle sizes: 6 gallon or 5 gallon or 3 gallon. Adjustment for bottle diameter without tools.

Canis 420 CL Side Shift automatic bottle size change

Canis 420 Side Shift

Canis 420 Side-Shift

Side-Shift has many advantages:

  • Faster machine with quick bottle feeding
  • Quite bottle transport with lower speed
  • Automatic and quick bottle Size change
  • Automatic height adjustment
  • Automatic diameter adjustment
  • Roller Conveyor for upright rejection
The In feed Conveyor shall be short and is controlled by Canis
The outgoing conveyor runs continuously.

Canis 420-C Side Shift Speed up to 3000 B/h (50 B/min)
Machine only contamination

Canis 420-CL Side shift speed up to 2400 B/h (40 B/min)
Machine with contamination and leak detection

The Sniffer heads in the C-type machine are of a new type. The Canis 420 Machine with the INSCO Sensors has been tested and approved Coca Cola®, and by Nestlé Waters Vittel PTC Water. The sensitivity for the tested contaminants is equivalent to other products and sufficient for the bottle inspection. The stability is better than with the common detectors. Two sensors per station double the already high operation safety. The first advantage is the low price of the sensor compared to UV or flash lamps used in other machines. The second advantage is that the sensors must not be cleaned; the sensors are replaced after 12 to 18 months. The absolute minimal maintenance saves money and the replacement of sensors is simple.
