Video helps determine cause of exploding jars on food packaging line

A new filler added to a food packaging line appeared to be causing intermittent jars to explode. The real culprit, discovered by the 20/20 Hindsight high-speed camera and video capture from Monitoring Technologies, was a bad bearing on the elevator for the filler head.

With the data gathered using the 20/20 Hindsight that continuously records for hours, the plant was able to quickly identify and solve a costly problem.

With the need for perfect quality and low cost production, packaging of food products can be particularly difficult. To solve these problems, use Hindsight’s food and beverage package allowing cameras to operate in clean areas. Operators can see jams in slow motion and instantly determine whether environmental issues (temperature, etc.), line setups, or material defects are the root cause.
