Contaminant detection in the chemical industry

The chemical industry includes many different manufacturing processes, from cleaning agents and surfactants to silicates. Sesotec contaminant detection systems ensure that production and further processing proceed free from any impurities or contaminants.

For decades, Sesotec has specialised in systems for industrial contaminant detection. We provide a technologically perfected range of metal detectors, which enable the reliable detection and removal of contaminants in the chemical industry.

The degree of purity that our machines help achieve in the production process prevents customer complaints and damage to machinery.

Why is contaminant detection important in the chemical industry?

The detection of metals in particular has become a key aspect of responsible production. Firstly, protecting processing machines during the production process is important in order to prevent damage to machinery and subsequent costs. Secondly, metal contaminants could also adversely affect or even halt chemical processes.

 

How do Sesotec metal detectors help?

Sesotec metal detectors can detect all types of metals and protect processing machines, such as mills, against damage and breakdowns.

What kinds of contaminants could appear?

Pieces of metal are the most frequent type of contaminant in the chemical industry. These contaminants might already be found in the raw materials that are delivered or wind up in the product during production, for example through machine wear, mill breakage, slough, etc.

 

Where are Sesotec machines and systems used in the chemical industry?

Our machines and systems make it possible to check products in goods receiving and during processing for metallic contaminants and to safely remove such material. Sesotec provides solutions for many types of conveyance, such as vacuum and pressure conveyance or free-fall designs.

White Paper

Keeping plastic compounds free of metallic contaminants

The Whitepaper explores the challenges that metal contamination poses to compounding and masterbatch production and considers the key features that metal separators must have to provide an adequate solution.

Sitraplas: Risk-free recyclate processing

Separately purchased recyclate often contains various different polymers as well as metal contaminants such as aluminum, brass, and stainless steel. Learn in our Case Study how Sitraplas has solved this problem.

OPC UA for production without machine downtime

SITRAPLAS GmbH is a producer of high-performance engineering plastic compounds. Unplanned downtime is a nightmare for every company, but especially for continuous production facilities. When metal separators are networked with plastic processing machines, the flow of information between machines can be monitored.

Machine protection during PVC granulation

To avoid any metal in the powder, CIPSA wanted to inspect the PVC compounds before they enter the pelletizer. This was to protect the extruder screw from damage and avoid expensive production stops.

How a metal separator saved this plastics manufacturer 75% in maintenance costs and increased output by 20%

While processing virgin glass-filled material together with regrind, the same problem was coming up up over and over again. Metal inclusions were clogging the hot runners of the molds, leading to as many as 10 emergency stops and 2 to 3 costly repairs per month. After careful consideration of the production environment and manufacturing specifications, the metal detection system PROTECTOR 40 was installed along with the magnet system SAFEMAG at the feed hopper of the injection molding machine.
