Tech/Engineering - Paper / Paper Manufacturing
English term or phrase: scans with infrared radiation
It is therefore of the utmost importance that before the wastepaper is delivered to the recycling depot where the purchase volume is determined, that the levels and types of contamination are already known. In order to measure this quickly and efficiently, the Papiertechnische Stiftung (PTS) has developed the Paper Bale Sensor. The tests that PTS carried out with the device quite accurately matched the contamination in the bales that were tested. Because of the simplicity of the system it is possible to check the paper bales while they are still on the lorry.
The equipment consists of a measuring probe that is connected to a portable computer. First, a hole is bored into the paper bale. Then the measuring probe is put into the hole – this scans the interior of the hole with infrared radiation. The computer calculates the amount of moisture, ash, fibres and plastics based on this information.
