Near Infrared measuring system for the detection of the composition of plastic samples directly from the production or from a recycling process.

Testing procedure

The sIRoPAD scans the samples distributed on the reflection plate in a continuous pass, measures and saves the results both as a complete file with all information or as Excel files via USB or WLAN on the PC.

The sizes of the measuring fields and the measurement parameters can be predefined depending on the specimen texture and the measurement time of the entire plate is less than 15 minutes. Samples of up to 100 grams per disk are measured with accuracy down to the ppm range, either as manual single scans or as automated batch files, which individually process the individual measurement fields and store the results automatically.

The measurement results can be displayed graphically on the touchscreen and PC screen and arranged as a complete analysis report.

All measurement files can be automatically or manually combined very easily into statistics which can be summed or compared in tabular or graphical form, thus enabling quality controls of all types over time periods, production processes or supplier quality. Differences in the specific weight, the thickness, etc. can also be compensated here.

The system also allows spectral comparisons for the fine-differentiation of plastics.
