The linear full bottle inspector
   No room for stowaways                    krones Linatronic 774-FBI

The bottles have been filled and
closed – what now? It‘s to be hoped
that there are no “stowaways” inside
them. Don‘t want to take that risk?
Then you should rely on the
Linatronic 774-FBI. The inspector
checks full bottles for glass splinters,
organic particles and other foreign
objects. It can also be fitted with fill
level and cap inspection units. For fill-
ing with zero-defect tolerance.
