Do you recycle plastics or glass? Are looking for an economical way to sort these material flows? Our recycling sorting systems with inlet chute efficiently separate mixed materials and remove contaminants with precision.
Sesotec recycling sorting systems with chute are suitable for removing contaminants or impurities from material that has already been shredded. They sort plastic flakes and regrind as well as glass fragments. Sesotec offers machinery designed specifically for one purpose as well as universal multi-sensor systems for various sorting jobs.
During the sorting process, the material stream is conducted over the sorter’s inlet chute by way of a vibrating trough conveyor. One or more sensors “scan” the material flow while they are still on the chute or below the lip of the chute in free fall. Depending on the application, sensors include high-resolution CCD line cameras, near-infrared sensors and inductive metal detectors. The electronics assembly analyses the recorded data based on factors such as color, shape and material and sends a signal to the air ejection unit, which removes contaminants from the material flow down to the millisecond with a blast of air. More information on how Sesotec recycling systems with chute work is available here.
are specifically suited to sorting plastic flakes, such as PET, HDPE and mixed plastic flakes. Thanks to a modular design, several sensors can be combined, making it possible to sort out colored flakes, metals and foreign plastic components with precision and reliability.
