THE powder testing system (PT 2C) from Optical Control Systems, with colour camera, counts and classifies contamination.
Colour classes can be defined with the "teaching" tool to detect discolorations and foreign bodies which are different in colour to the bulk material, like PVC, PP, PE, etc.
Available from Rheology Solutions , the system is capable of detecting contamination and discoloured powder particles (pink, yellow, brown, black, etc.).
These inhomogenities are sorted into different class sizes which are completely user definable. Furthermore, it is possible to define alarm limits. If these are exceeded, a floating contact is activated.
The software offers a multitude of configuration possibilities, enabling the user to adapt the system exactly according to individual requirements.
The PT2C is applicable for laboratory purposes as well as on-line inspection. The powder can be submitted as a sample or it can be withdrawn from the production line by creating a bypass.
Using a bypass system gives the user the advantage of direct inspection of the material during the production process. This allows quicker reaction to any defects.
The PT2C from OCS is perfect for online and laboratory applications for all free flowing powders across, food, pharmaceutical, and polymer industries
