The TapTone PRO Series FS is designed to handle the higher pressure applications found with many aerosol containers and heavy-duty aluminum can/bottle applications.

The system inspects 100% of containers at production line speeds. The FS sensor is manufactured with a stainless-steel transport system for harsh environments. The reinforced side plates give extra rigidity for high-pressure applications and allow for a stable reading with excellent resolution.

The system can alternatively be fitted with a mid-range or low range pressure sensor for applications that require all-stainless-steel construction.

A PRO Series User Interface is required for operation of the FS sensor. A PRO Series interface is required if adding a vision inspection option.

This system is also available with an extended height frame to accommodate conveyor heights up to 1.96m (77in).

The system can also be configured with a mid-range or low range pressure sensor for applications that require all stainless-steel construction.

  • Easy operation and product set-up using a large colour touchscreen and icon driven menus
  • Controlled access to system features with multi-level passwords
  • Combined inspections on a single controller: run up to four primary inspections
  • Reject and sort with two independently operated reject outputs
  • Meets CE requirements
  • UL and CUL approved

How it works:

Force Technology

Detects leaks and low pressure in LN2 dosed containers, carbonated beverage containers and aerosol containers. Parallel belts transport the container past a sensor that measures the tension on the sidewall of the container. This action allows the system to measure the pressure inside the container.

Utilising DSP technology, the controller analyzes the measurement and assigns a merit value to each container. If the merit value is outside of the acceptable range, a reject signal activates a remote reject system and the container is removed from the line.


  • Pressure/leak inspection in aerosol cans with gas propellants
  • Pressure inspection in aerosol cans with liquid propellant
  • Pressure/leak inspection in carbonated or LN2 dosed plastic containers
  • Pressure/leak inspection in carbonated or LN2 dosed beverage cans
