Each of these factors decreases the efficiency, and thus from the profitability, of sorting and recycling processes.
VARISORT+ has a modular design that allows for the combination of up to three sensors: C, M, and N. The installation of additional sensors is always possible at a later date.
Color and shape detection (C) is carried out through a separate camera system, allowing for the sensor to be optimally configured for each sorting job. Innovative illumination options enable economical and process reliable sorting:
Color detection is carried out through a combination of the C-Sensor and the NIR-Sensor. This ensures the most economical solution as well as the least maintenance. This combination is ideal for heavily soiled material with many contaminants and after washing lines.
Color detection is carried out via a separate LED transmitted light unit, enabling excellent object detection as well as highly accurate color differentiation in transparent materials. This solution is ideal for sorting applications requiring precise color sorting with only minimal debris and labels.
Both a top light and a transparency unit are used for color detection, combining the advantages of both systems. A special lighting and camera device is installed, enabling the system to recognize even the most challenging materials, such as difficult-to-distinguish colors (e.g. opaque, opaque white, silver, and light gold) and functional materials (e.g. barrier bottles, additives, TiO2).
The Sesotec all-metal sensor (M) reliably detects even the tiniest metallic contaminants, regardless of their magnetic properties.
The Sesotec NIR-Sensor (N) makes use of high-resolution spectral analysis, setting the standard for precise differentiation of plastic compounds. In addition to reliably identifying container materials (e.g. PET), the NIR-Sensor also detects labels (e.g. PET+PVC) and specialty materials (e.g. PET-G, PET trays, flame retardants, LDPE, and HDPE). As a static sensor with no rotating parts, there is no risk of mechanical wear.
