Sorting Machines Product Portfolio

From the mixed solid municipal waste recyclable materials have to be recovered in greater proportion. One of the most important means to achieve this goal in the future is the so-called 'sensor based sorting' (sorting machines based on sensors). For the past few years Partner of the Waste to Energy Development Center Consortium has been developing plants which assist this guiding principle. Whether it may be external design or functional operation, the concept and operation of the new models yield in all areas exciting and interesting ideas.

5F separator (KLME) 

Waste processing can be carried out with the new 5F separator at a more favourable price with less specific energy consumption. 

Technical description: 

  • Patented product, 
  • Particle size(mm): 60-200 (MSW) 
  • Sorting capacity (t/h): max. 8 t/h
  • Electricity consumption(kW): 22
  • Outputs: Fe, Al, Si, 2D, 3D
  • Weight: 8000 kg
  • Size (width x height x length | mm): 2000x2850x4500

The 5F separator unites four machines in one combined separator reducing the space requirements of waste separator plants in the future, there is no need for four separate machines or conveyor belts connecting them.  

The 1200 mm-wide 5F separator was designed by us primarily for sorting out the 60-200 mm fractions of mixed municipal solid waste. We carried out successful experiments with the 400 mm-wide separator prototype for sorting out shredded WEEE (e-waste) samples too, so the equipment can be used for other material streams as well. The equipment contains four units: two air current machines, one constant magnetic separator and an eddy current separator

The 5F separator can sort out the following products: 

  • Fe 
  • Inert materials 
  • Non-ferrous metals 
  • 3D-light materials 
  • 2D-materials such as film and paper.

NIR Optical Sorter

Each substance has an easily identifiable light reflection curve, the so-called spectral fingerprint. The control board of the sorter tests 'these fingerprints' by means of a hyperspectral imaging camera and distinguishes them from each other.

The substance to sort can be adjusted on the user surface of the software, which is selected after it has been identified with the help of pneumatic blowers from the falling substance stream at the end of the conveyor belt. It can be controlled on the spot or from a distance, through ethernet Modbus TCP/IP network.
