The guarantee of high quality of plastic flakes and regrind is crucial in determining whether plastic processors and manufacturers can profitably use and sell plastic recyclate.
Depending on how the recyclate will be used, but also as a means of evaluating the recycling sorting process, elaborate manual, visual, or thermal sample analyses are often necessary in order to assess the quality of a batch of materials. Such sample analyses are hardly representative, and furthermore require additional resources, costs, and time.
Automatically performs precise, reproducible analyses of material samples with the help of up to three integrated sensors:
FLAKE SCAN virtually eliminates the need for labor-intensive sample analyses and significantly reduces the efforts involved in performing manual, visual, and thermal inspections. By enabling quick and informed decisions about the viability of plastic flakes and regrind, FLAKE SCAN helps increase the profitability of using plastic recyclate. Furthermore, the results provide valuable insights into the recycling process and the functionality of various components.
Analysis results can be displayed either in a table or in diagrams. Should predefined limits for polymer types or false colors be exceeded, this will be marked accordingly in the table. The amount of identified metal contaminants will also be displayed.
From the “History” menu, you can quickly compare the purity and color quality of the current batch with those of archived samples.
optional VISUDESK visualization software, you can see all process and
usage data from your Sesotec sorting and metal detection devices in one
comprehensive dashboard. This is possible by means of an OPC UA machine
communication protocol implemented in each device as well as your
The browser-based interface is accessible
both on desktop and mobile. This dashboard provides a comprehensive
overview of your entire sorting line as well as information about
specific groups of devices, enabling you to quickly create equipment
configurations and automate product changes.
Seamless backwards compatibility is possible via established VISUTEC protocols. Customizable e-mail and text alerts keep you informed about critical developments in the machine status.
