Handheld plastics analyser
Recycling of plastics, carpeting and other polymer materials is increasing as more of these products are being recovered, recycled and reused by consumers and recycling facilities.
Post-industrial and post-consumer materials need to be accurately identified and sorted to achieve high quality reprocessed material. The Thermo Scientific™ microPHAZIR™ PC Analyser for Plastic/Polymer Identification is an NIR spectroscopy tool that rapidly screens and identifies a variety of polymers, plastics and fibre types on-site to streamline inspection without compromising accuracy and quality.
The 2.75 lb (1.25 kg) microPHAZIR PC Analyser for Plastic/Polymer Identification is a completely self-contained, powerful and cost-effective tool for the proper sorting and recycling of post-industrial and post-consumer polymer materials and carpet fibres.
Recycling rates have been a challenging due to the complexity of sorting and processing. Many regions offer programs to encourage consumers to recycle plastic containing products. The resulting mixed plastics are sent to large sorting facilities where they are processed. In order to achieve a high quality of reprocessed material, plastics need to be accurately identified and properly sorted. The Thermo Scientific microPHAZIR PC analyser is a powerful tool to enable rapid screening and identification of plastics types.
Identification of common plastic types, including:
PLA, PET, PP, PS, ABS, PI, PSO, PE, PPS, TPV, PTT,PC, PMP, PBT, PA (nylon), PETG, SAN, EVA, PB, PPO, CA, PMMA, PUR, PI, PVC, PLA, Ionomer, Styrenic terpolymer, Elastomer, POM, Nylon+ABS
Rapid and accurate results displayed within seconds
Easy to use
Designed for non-expert users, the analyser is fully automated and requires no user input
Small and lightweight for fast identification of materials in the field or at the sorting facility
No sample preparation or burn test necessary, NIR is fast, safe and non-destructive
