Wire and Cable Technology International November/December 2014 : IFC »Your quality makes the difference.« Frederik Becker Business Development SIKORA AG The PURITY SCANNER is a system for the 100% online inspection and sorting of plastic pellets used for the insulation of medium, high and extra-high voltage cables, but as well for other applications such as the medical industry. Contaminated pellets are separated and sorted out, assuring that only pure pellets get into the extrusion process. The pellet inspection allows the detection of organic and metallic contamination inside the pellet as well as on the pellet surface, using a special combination of X-ray technology and an optical system. The smallest detectable particle size is 2 mil (50 µm) at a flow rate of up to 4,400 lbs/h (2,000 kg/h). • Dual inspection: X-ray and optical • Detection of contamination from 2 mil (50 µm) on the pellet surface and inside the pellet • Automatic sorting • Easy to integrate in existing feeding systems • Suitable for all kinds of transparent and colored pellets • Hermetically sealed system • Throughput of 1,100 / 2,200 / 4,400 lbs/h (500 / 1,000 / 2,000 kg/h) See us at IWCS Conference 2014, Nov 9 -12, Providence, RI, USA, Booth 413
