Plastic Chip Granule Pellets

Superior Moisture Control

Recycled plastic has endless uses and plastic pellet moisture content is a crucial step when recylcing the material into its next use. The process of turning piles of used plastics into usable products involves a long, complex process. During this process, plastic items are reduced to plastic chips, which are then washed, dried, made into granules, molded into plastic pellets, and reborn into new items. Without the right processing of the plastic during the recycling and production processes, the product quality becomes inferior.

To create the best quality recycled plastic products, you need to use the right equipment. A quality plastic chip, granule, or pellet moisture analyzer is one instrument that is absolutely indispensable.

The IR-3000 makes the ideal plastic chip or plastic granule and pellet moisture analyzer. It takes instant, non-contact measurements of moisture in % dry and % wet; allowing you to adjust moisture either automatically or manually to suit your needs. And that’s not all it does. Temperature, water-based coatings, chemical composition, and more are easily measured using the IR-3000.

Understand the Process

Quality and consistency are crucial when it comes to maintaining a manufacturing line. Continuous monitoring of moisture content provides proactive avoidance of potential issues caused by out of tolerance moisture levels. Producers focus to minimize cost, reduce waste, increasing product quality, and maximizing plant efficiency. Wasted efforts are certainly a drain on resources in addition to wasted product, creating the need to evaluate and implement lean manufacturing principles.
