Pellet Scanning System PS800C

The PS800C inspection system is used to analyse transparent and opaque pellets.  Equipped with two colour line scan cameras, located opposite of each other for defect detection with 50 μm resolution and 800 kg/h throughput the system provides a precise measurement of contaminations, discolorations and other impurities in different size classes and coloration. The storage of particle analyses and permanent availability of measuring results assure excellent statistic measuring performance and ideal production and process control. An additional feature for the PS800C is the determination of the mixing ratio of different coloured pellets, which is an essential  feature  for  compounder & masterbatch manufacturers and a sorting unit.

Feeding can be automated by means of an online hopper. Furthermore,
a sorting option to separate the contaminated pellets is available on request.
