PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED
The PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED is a unique system for 100 % online inspection and automatic sorting of plastic pellets.
From production and compounding to the processing of injection molded parts, profiles or films, the purity of the plastic pellets has the highest priority for the polymer industry. This is the only way to guarantee the highest quality of the end product.
SIKORA's PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED inspects 100 % of plastic pellets online and automatically sorts out contaminated individual pellets from 50 µm upwards. The system combines X-ray technology with a flexible optical system. Up to five cameras can be installed depending on the expected contamination and application. All types of pellets are reliably inspected. The X-ray camera detects metallic impurities in the pellet and on its surface. Color deviations in transparent or on translucent and colored raw materials are detected by the color and/or black-and-white cameras. Contamination are automatically sorted out, thus ensuring material quality.
In order to achieve higher material throughputs, the PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED is now also available as a "Twin Pack" solution. This achieves a throughput of up to three tons per hour.
|Inspection Methods/Sensor Technologies||X-ray and optical cameras|
|Smallest Detectable Contamination Size||X-ray: 50 μm (cube 3D), 50 x 50 x 50 μm |
Optical: 50 μm (square 2D), 50 x 50 μm
|Throughput||Depending on geometry and specific weight of the material to be inspected, there are throughputs possible from a few kilograms up to one ton/hour* per device. A combination of devices allows for the inspection and sorting of higher throughput capacities.|
