The LINEMASTER™ is a patented quality control instrument used for accurate validation of the induction sealer settings, process monitoring and fault diagnosis. Use it to:
Accurately set and re-set the induction sealer
Monitor production to ensure consistently good sealing
Warns you if the sealer is not correctly set or operating.
Help find the cause of sealing problems
Provide records for QA and traceability use
How does it work?
The LINEMASTER™ is passed down the filling line conveyor and measures the electromagnetic energy that is received from the induction sealer.
Because it measures received energy only, in effect from the position of the bottle cap it automatically takes in all variables that affect the seal quality (power output of the sealer, conveyor speed (dwell time), height and angle of the sealing head, position under sealing head etc.).
This is much more effective and accurate than just using the controls on the sealer. These can only measure the output from the sealer and cannot include the effect of the distance of the sealing head from the bottle or the speed of the conveyor which critically affect the energy input into the cap foil liner.
PATROLMAN™ patented LINEMASTER™ is the only product available that measures the heat energy going directly into the foil which is why so many top companies use it. The original LINEMASTER™ was launched in 2003 and is used by many leading companies that include.

LINEMASTER™ can also be used for process and equipment validation and can assist in finding the cause of problems if sealing problems do occur.
LINEMASTER™ is mounted between two bottles and passed down the filling line under the induction sealer. It measures and displays the induction energy that is received by the cap.
