Sorting

Optical Sorting (0.3 mm) / Fine Speck (0.1 mm)

Using state of the art optical sorting equipment, Concepts West can sort polymers to your specifications. Our customers have found that we provide significant value by taking a product that was contaminated, remove off-colored/cross-contamination through sorting, package it, warehouse it, and ship directly to their customer. Often this material, once considered for disposal, can be sold for full price. Although other companies offer handpicking services, by using optical sorting at a similar price, yield loss is minimized and material can be processed at a greater throughput rate. By combining our optical sorting with our other services (e.g. Blending, Screening, Packaging, Drying, Warehousing) we can offer one-stop service to enhance your product, and distribute it directly to your customer.

Hand Sorting

When you need hand sorting, Concepts West will do it for you. Although most contaminated polymers can now be optically sorted, occasionally there is still a need for handpicking. Concepts West can provide that service, offering up to four handpicking stations. With experienced operators and exclusive equipment, we can handpick your polymer in a timely manner at a cost effective price. By combining handpicking with our other services (e.g. Blending, Sorting, Screening, Packaging, Drying, Warehousing) we offer one-stop service to enhance your product, and distribute it directly to your customer.
