Online and Offline Analysis of Pellets and Flakes
Sikora AG, Bremen, Germany, presents its new models of the Purity Concept Systems. With that, the company offers an outlook on the varied potential of its systems for online and offline inspection and analysis of plastic material. According to the application, the systems are equipped with X-ray technology (X), infrared technology (IR) or optical sensors (V) and can be used for samples during the production in order to find impurities from 50 μm.
During the processing of high-quality and therefore high-priced XLPE materials it is often not enough to rely only on sample tests. Here it is useful to integrate an online analysis in the production process. For a low throughput up to 50 kg per hour, which is common during the extrusion of medical hoses for example, Sikora offers the Purity Concept System with conveyor belt that can easily be integrated in existing lines. Depending on the model, the device inspects pellets and flakes with optical sensors or by using X-ray technology for contamination from 50 μm before the material enters the extruder.
Especially interesting are the systems for the manufacture of medical hoses. An essential criterion for hoses of the medical field is the absolute purity of all materials in order to ensure highest quality for the demanding range of application.
