Polymer type detection (N-sensor)
The hyperspectral Sesotec N-sensor (near infrared) with halogen illumination offers a proven solution for high-end recycling applications such as bottle-to-bottle, tray-to-tray, and other sorting tasks involving food-grade plastics. The highly precise sensor reliably detects many different types of foreign plastics: from labels (PVC), to caps (HDPE, PP), to PET-family plastics (e.g. PET-G). This wide range of plastics is simultaneously sorted out from the material flow of valuable materials. The hyperspectral camera is static, meaning the N-sensor will not accumulate much wear and tear, helping to save maintenance and repair costs.
Best of all: the sorting process is highly efficient. The static N-sensor is capable of extremely high scanning rates, achieving throughput rates of up to 3.8 t/h.
Color detection (C-sensor)
The Sesotec C-sensor achieves color detection by means of a dedicated camera system. This sensor can be adjusted to perform optimally for the sorting task at hand. Innovative LED illumination enables an economical and reliable sorting process. It is even possible to detect opaque-white TiO2-flakes.
Metal detection (M-sensor)
The Sesotec M-sensor reliably detects even the tiniest metal contaminants, regardless of their magnetic properties. Built into this sensor is Sesotec’s 40-year history of excellence in metal detection for diverse industries. The M-sensor is precise, robust, and reliable.

VISUDESK visualization software
With optional VISUDESK visualization software, you can see all process and usage data from your Sesotec sorting and metal detection devices in one comprehensive dashboard. This is possible by means of an OPC UA machine communication protocol implemented in each device as well as your company server. The browser-based interface is accessible both on desktop and mobile.
This dashboard provides a comprehensive overview of your entire sorting line as well as information about specific groups of devices, enabling you to quickly create equipment configurations and automate product changes.
Seamless backwards compatibility is possible via established VISUTEC protocols. Customizable e-mail and text alerts keep you informed about critical developments in the machine status.
