PVC contamination is common in all types of packaging (boxes, bottles, jars, cans, pouchers) and in all food industries. Despite the fact that PVC is a plastic type, we are still able to detect it. But PVC remains difficult to find, but since the density of PVC is usually higher than the food in which the PVC particles are located, it can be detected. The colour is not important.
PVC should always be tested to determine whether detection is possible
When dealing with possible PVC contamination, ScreenTec always tests to establish the validation of the screening. The concept of hardness often does not apply to PVC, so hard pieces of plastic can sometimes also have a low density.
The advice for PVC contamination is therefore: Test because you never know…
Normally parts of about Ø4mm can be found.
