Pellet Scanner (PS25C)

With the OCS Pellet Scanner (PS25C), highly transparent and opaque pellets can be analysed on a vibration plate using a colour matrix camera. The system detects impurities that show a colour deviation from the product. An additional feature of the PS25C is a multi-track flap system (optional), which sorts out the contaminated pellets. Further advantages are the data transfer of the real-time results to the production and process control as well as the subsequent evaluation of the sorted-out pellets by further analysis systems.
