  Measuring the pellet sample with SPECTRO-3-0°/45°-MSM-LAB-ANA-P

Color measurement of recyclate samples with laboratory device SPECTRO-3-0°/45°-MSM-LAB-ANA-P: After successful calibration, the recyclate recording unit must be flanged to the calibration recording unit for the color measurement of plastic recyclates. To do this, the RAL plastic card that may still be in the calibration recording unit must first be removed. After opening the pellet sample container, pour the pellets completely into the funnel and place the empty sample container in the recess provided below the recyclate receiving unit.

Making sure things don´t get too colorful when using plastic recyclates.
A combination of technical progress in the processing and sorting of plastic waste and the impact of EU legal requirements (50 % of plastic packaging must be recycled by 2025 and 55% by 2030) means that the amount of recyclable plastic waste has been steadily increasing for years. The requirements placed on the quality of recyclates have also been increasing. In addition to the type of plastic and its former purpose, the color of the recyclate is also assuming increasing importance.

This video shows the possible applications of the SPECTRO3-MSM-DOCAL-Scope V1.0 software in combination with the SPECTRO-3-0°/45°-MSM-LAB-ANA-P laboratory color measurement system (see also → SPECTRO-LAB-SYSTEMS).
