QC+ Developed by Pellenc ST specifically for the refuse-derived fuel industry, this quality-control machine can be used by recyclers to check moisture content, along with the levels of PVC and chlorine — major contaminants in plastics recycling — in their material streams. It is equipped with Pellenc’s CNS —  “Central Nervous System” — software platform, designed so that users can manage their waste stream through customized reports and alerts, and can integrate future technologies and sensors. 

What’s new? The system, released within the past year. 

Benefits Identification and elimination of PVC and chlorine from the recycling stream, and flexibility to fit into tight spaces. The QC+ can be easily integrated and upgraded. It is available in either a gantry or conveyor version, can be assembled in a modular way on a straight or inclined plane and its cabinet can be offset, to accommodate users’ space constraints.
