viscotec tracability

100 % process

viscotec‘s food grade package assures GMP compliant quality control of the super-cleaning process. Our reactors are equipped with a special software unit that controlls and records all food grade parameters continuously. In combination with the viscotec FIFO treatment, 100 % traceability is given.

  • Dynamic vacuum treatment

    Due to the reduction of the boiling temperature, all contaminants evaporate when reaching the PET surface. As a result, shorter residence times at lower temperatures with an outstanding decontamination performance are achieved with viscotec technology.

  • First in, first out principle

    The design of the viscoSTAR and deCON outlet ensures a constant treatment time of the material in the reactor. This essential and patented treatment is the main element accountable for viscotec's worldwide market success.

Gas chromatographies

Gas chromatographies are used for testing the purity of PET. Frequently produced at customers’ plant sites for quality reasons, they always show the same excellent viscotec decontamination efficiency: No difference between rPET & virgin material.
