Product description
The FLAKE PURIFIER C is a colour sorting system, developed to sort PET flakes and used to separate differently coloured PET flake streams into pure colour fractions.

The FLAKE PURIFIER series is based on a modular concept in which up to three sensors can be combined. In addition to colour separation, the FLAKE PURIFIER can also perform metal separation and contamination detection (e.g. different types of plastics). 
Advantages

  • Modular design facilitates future updates

  • Remote maintenance and automatic monitoring

  • VISUTEC data management system integration

 
Optional Equipment

• Near infrared sensor to detect different types of plastic • Inductive sensor to detect metal particles
