Glass can be recycled any number of times without losing any quality, but glassworks have high standards when it comes to fragment quality. Sesotec systems help recycling companies to meet strict requirements. They separate fragments, remove contaminants, such as ceramics, stones and porcelain, and separate the material flow by color and type of glass. The result? Recycling rates of up to 100 per cent.
Sesotec specializes in industrial material-sorting systems and has more than 40 years of experience in the glass recycling industry. Our sorting systems reliably differentiate between materials using various types of sensor technology and separate material flows effectively.
Why is glass recycled?
In Germany, nearly 2 million metric tons of used glass ends up in collection containers each year. That is how it should be, because glass is the perfect product for recycling. As a material, it is 100 per cent recyclable and can be melted down over and over again and turned into new products. Doing so saves energy and raw materials, such as silica sand, soda and lime. In addition, used glass does not need to be landfilled.
What are the challenges?
How do Sesotec systems help you?
Our sorting systems separate cullet and create high-quality single-color fractions out of mixed-color glass fragments. Even heat-resistant and special leaded glass is safely and reliably removed. Sesotec systems also remove all contaminants. Magnets and metal separators remove caps, closures and other metal pieces from the material flow. Using cameras, the sorting systems also identify and eliminate foreign material, such as ceramics, stones and porcelain.
What are the advantages of our systems?
The special design of the glass-sorting system lowers glass breakage and facilitates installation in small spaces, which is a real advantage when retrofitting or expanding your set-up. Our sorting systems are also sturdy, low-maintenance and easy to operate.
With a wide and flexible range of products, we develop tailored sorting solutions for our customers. Our products include the following:
