Plastics are an important product in the petrochemical industry – and quality is a key factor for success. Our contaminant detectors and separators ensure metal-free granules and satisfied customers.
When it comes to producing plastics – one of the most important areas in the petrochemical industry – product purity is a key quality factor. It is necessary above all to eliminate metal pieces and particles, which could otherwise cause damage to machinery when the plastic is processed and create quality issues. As a result, manufacturers of plastics should use machine-based contaminant detectors. It is the only way they can ensure that they are able to consistently deliver granules of perfect quality.
Metals such as iron, stainless steel and copper very often contaminate plastics. There is a wide range of reasons for this, including:
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.
