TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)
based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY
Traditional manual or semi-automated techniques, however, are only able to recover low levels of separate materials from commercial and industrial waste streams.
In contrast, TOMRA’s fully adjustable, state-of-the-art, senor-based sorting and recycling systems convert complex and varied commercial and industrial streams into high quality, separated output. The systems also make manual picking unnecessary, thus reducing labor costs and material loss, while increasing the efficiency of commercial waste recycling.
Operationally, through using detection techniques such as near infrared (NIR), x-ray transmission (XRT), visual spectrometers (VIS), color line cameras and metal sensors in combination, the systems offer:
- High recovery rates
- High throughputs
- High purity levels
- Speedy return on investment
- Low running costs
- Advanced recognition capabilities (material, color, atomic density etc)
