NEW! Volume Deflection Gauge - VDG-1000

Volume Deflection Measurement System for Food Can Ends

Volume Deflection Gauge for measuring the deflection of food 
can ends under pressure

CMC-KUHNKE presents the new Volume Deflection Gauge for measuring the deflection of food can ends under pressure and simulating can sterilization.

Developed especially for a major 3-piece can maker, the VDG-1000 is currently the one and only volume deflection gauge on the market.

Volume Deflection Test

Through a special processing algorithm, the VDG-1000 can directly and accurately check the volume deflection of the can end while filling the can with air pressure.

Simply clamp a sealed food can into the chamber and close the door. When the test begins, the bottom of the can is pierced by a pin. The air pressure in the chamber is then equalized. Using pre-selected can pressure steps, the can end progressively deflects outwards. The pressure sensor inside the chamber clearly displays the changes in pressure. After the test, the measured values are shown on the touch display, with the option to transmit the data to a PC.

Cycle Test

It is as easy as the push of a button to switch from the Volume Deflection Test to the Cycle Test. The cycle test simulates the phases of sterilization and the effects it has on the can ends. The measured values are displayed on the touch screen and can be transmitted to a PC.
