Complete plastic windows can be recycled by means of a special process. The recycling process results in a final product of high-quality, pure-grade PVC granules, which serve as a raw material for new windows. It is stored in large silos that are fitted with tubes for uniform colour mixing. For optimal control of production and supply, the contents of the silo have to be determined, which is usually via level measurement.
