New Instrument for Quality Control laboratories in Polypropylene Manufacturing

May 14 2013

The new Polymer Char CRYSTEX® QC instrument represents a step forward in technology for automation of the amorphous phase determination, previously measured as Xylenes Solubles; in Manufacturing Quality Control laboratories of Polypropylene (PP).

The new CRYSTEX® QC overcomes all difficulties of the old-style gravimetric methods based on traditional wet chemistry. This modern quantitative chemical analysis method eliminates the use of any laboratory glassware, external filtration or extraction devices, as well as all the associated tedious manual operations.

CRYSTEX® QC has been designed to be installed in a plant laboratory environment, being both reliable and fully automated. It is designed to control PP production measuring individual samples taking every shift up to 6 samples per day and requiring minimum bench space and utilities. This solution covers this way the need of manufacturers to measure the

amount of soluble or amorphous fraction, which has become a reference in the PP Production Quality Control as per its significant influence in some physical properties of the resin and its importance in high impact PP materials.
