APOS N-alyzer® measures the nitrogen amount and continuously determines and quantifies the share of glued material in the material flow. The material mix can be adjusted in real time during the production process. With a continuous monitoring, the gluing can be optimised as well, an over- or underdosing can be prevented, costs can be saved and products optimised.
Urea and resin both contain nitrogen and the N-alyzer can show this valuable information. Based on the current nitrogen amount of the unglued material, the share of recycling material (material which already contains resin) is captured. The material can be analysed both before and after the dryer, which allows an optimisation of material feeds and recycling shares. The share of glued material influences the emissions from the dryer, so e.g. the addition of urea can be adapted.
