Flexspeed process modules

To fully benefit from the Flexspeed carrousel’s unmatched filling capacity, the speed of the upstream and downstream processes must be equally high. To that end Kosan Crisplant offers various high-speed process modules with a capacity of more than 4000 cylinders/hour – just like the Flexspeed filling carrousel.

The process modules are small carrousel units with six stands that run synchronically with the filling carrousel as they are all connected to the same gear and motor.

Types of process modules:

  • Leak detector with CIR test heads for leak detection by means of infrared technology.
  • Valve tester for detection of damaged valves and regulator gaskets by means of a pressure test. Can be installed upstream in the Flexspeed divert module for immediate sorting out of cylinders with defective valves or regulator gaskets to avoid gas leaks during the filling process due to bad valves.
  • Mid seam leak detector for detection of leaks from the weld seam of steel cylinders.
  • Cap applicator for application of hard caps. The cap applicator module comes with cap buffer storage for up to 4 hours’ operation (depending on cap size).
  • Cap applicator for application of shrinkable caps. The cap applicator module comes with cap buffer storage for up to 4 hours’ operation (depending on cap size).
  • Thermo-sealing module for shrinking of shrinkable caps by means of steam.
