To check the integrity of its cardboard packaging, Recochem - a manufacturer of household chemical products and automotive fluids - used to extract boxes from the production line for destructive testing to establish if the hot melt adhesive had been applied in sufficient quantity and accurately. It was a time-consuming and expensive task but, thanks the FLIR thermal imaging, quality control is now fully automated and only sub-standard boxes are scrapped.

Fortress removes costly equipment risks with Remote Management Software
In fast paced, harsh or cramped food production and packing lines, where metal detectors are subject to rigorous washdowns and knocks from operatives, modern machine control panels are especially vulnerable to damage. While most are designed to withstand water ingress, Fortress Technology reports that these delicate screens can be a costly item to replace, with machine inoperability caused by a single panel failure significantly impacting line productivity.

HRS Heat Exchangers - Recovering high value products helps food factories maximise returns
When processing any kind of remotely viscous food product it is inevitable that a certain amount will adhere to surfaces, such as the inside of vessels and pipe work, or become left in equipment after processing. The potential value of this lost product can soon add up, especially when handling large quantities of viscous, valuable products such as honey, syrups and purées.
