On Stand No. 19P69 at the RWM Show 20102 S+S Inspection (www.sesotec.co.uk) will be demonstrating the latest version of its widely used VARISORT COMPACT multi-sensor sorting system. The popularity of the machine in the recycling industry is due to the flexibility of the compact, modular design which allows sensor changes and upgrades to be economically fitted at any time as needs change and the specially adapted vibratory feeders providing homogeneous material feed across the full width of a fast running conveyor belt. This eliminates any problems due to the weight, shape and abrasive characteristics of the material to be inspected resulting in a high throughput and excellent separation prior to inspection.
The VARISORT COMPACT is designed to be fitted with a range of inductive and optical sensors used in concert or individually. The flexibility of the design means that future sensor developments can be fitted ensuring an exceptionally low cost of ownership.
The Near Infra-Red (NIR), mono or colour camera or metal sensing technologies and advanced evaluation technologies guarantee high detection accuracy that can analyse 500,000 individual parts per second. The S+S segmented high speed air ejection nozzles, operating at up to 500 cycles per second, provide very high contamination ejection rates allowing material with high levels of contamination to be processed to a high level of purity.
The VARISORT COMPACT can be supplied or retrofitted with the VISUTEC data management software for on-line performance monitoring and remote fault diagnosis and maintenance when networked through a PC.
The modularity and feed system make the VARISORT COMPACT especially suitable for recycling irregular and difficult bulk materials. Typical applications include:
• Plastic Regrind and Granulate
• Wooden Pellets
• Auto Shredder Residue ASR/ELV
• WEEE Electronics Scrap
