Our Product Highlights at K 2019

Sesotec sorting systems for plastics recycling can be equipped with sensors that are capable of sorting bottles, flakes or regrind according to different criteria, such as colour, shape, material or metal content. The various sensors can also be combined depending on the application.

The FLAKE PURIFIER+ multi-sensor sorting system, on display at Sesotec’s stand, features high-precision contaminant separation and reduced loss of good material. The special material infeed system, extra-fine valve grid and optional integrated resort track on the FLAKE PURIFIER+ increase efficiency during the recycling process, especially when dealing with highly contaminated input material.

Application Fields: Recycling

K 2019 will see the premiere of the FLAKE SCAN plastic flake analysis system, which is designed to be the perfect size for laboratory use. Companies looking to turn recyclates into new granulate can use the FLAKE SCAN material analysis system to inspect incoming goods. In recycling, the device can be used by quality laboratories to inspect outgoing goods. So far, both branches of the industry have employed manual analytical procedures that take a lot of time and produce results that cannot be duplicated. But thanks to FLAKE SCAN, a few minutes is all it takes to get reports on the composition of various plastics and on off-colour components in consistently high quality and with reproducible results.

Applications Fields : Recycling, Plastics manufacturing

At its K 2019 stand, Sesotec will showcase metal detectors from its GF, PROTECTOR and RAPID PRO SENSE 6 series. The detectors can be used in a variety of material infeed applications and ensure high plant availability for processing machinery and equipment by preventing unscheduled machine downtime due to metal particles, thereby avoiding the repair costs associated with breaks in production and potential recalls. Metal detectors play an essential role in ensuring high plant availability and avoiding damage, especially when processing recyclates.

The RAPID PRO SENSE 6 metal detector, which will be unveiled at K 2019, is equipped with a newly developed reject mechanism designed for compound manufacturers that have frequent colour changes or that manufacture or process abrasive materials. Special highlights include tool-free access for easy cleaning and an optional automatic cleaning function. Both features have already been registered for patent.

Application Fields: Plastics manufacturing, Plastics processing

A new attraction is the ASM QUASAR optical sorting system, which can be used in granulate quality assurance in plastics manufacturing to ensure that granules with black spots, for example, are removed. Along with colour, further parameters – such as surface, shape and size – can also be analysed, making the system very accurate in deciding what to keep or reject.
