Pellet Scanner (PS800C)

With the OCS Pellet Scanner (PS800C), highly transparent and opaque pellets can be analysed in free fall using two separate colour line scan cameras (inspection of the front and back of the pellet stream). The system detects impurities that show a colour deviation from the product. An additional feature of the PS800C is a multi-track flap system that sorts out the contaminated pellets. The masterbatch concentration can also be determined. Further advantages are the data transfer of real-time results to the production and process control as well as product improvement through the sorting out of contaminated pellets.
