Flake Sorting: PVC in PET
Challenge: Distinguish between PVC and PET
Solution: Separation of PVC and PET with
EVK Chemical Imaging
EVK's hyperspectral imaging systems enable the classification of different materials based on their chemical composition. While conventional color cameras reach their limits, the EVK HELIOS hyperspectral systems significantly expand the possibilities of material detection and are able to reliably distinguish PET and PVC.
Hyperspectral Imaging offers the degree of classification accuracy required for applications in the recycling industry by directly measuring chemical molecular composition through the absorption of light (spectroscopy).
EVK's portfolio of sensor-based technology includes hyperspectral cameras and inductive sensor systems that can be used individually or combined with a color camera with sensor fusion to create a high-performance sorting application.
