    Metal Sorting - Non Ferrous Metals Sorting

    Modern sensor-based sorting systems are superior to traditional manual or sink-float processes for reasons including that they achieve material purities of up to 99.9% in refining the sorted fractions. TOMRA Sorting’s efficient sorting and recycling technology provides benefits for shredder machinery and heavy media operators, plus aluminum resmelters. Shredder operators can create individual fractions out of mixed product which yield much higher market values. Heavy media operators can produce and sell pure final products themselves, meaning their investment in technology is recouped quickly. After wet processing, the aluminum product still contains impurities and its concentration can be improved further using TITECH technology and sold for a considerably higher profit. For smelters, the TITECH x-tract [XRT] removes impurities in the secondary resource to such a high degree of precision that less primary resource is needed to obtain useful aluminum.

    Mixed Municipal Solid Waste Sorting

    Traditional (manual) or semi-automated techniques, however, are only able to recover low levels of separate materials from mixed municipal waste streams and mean considerable content going to landfill. In contrast, TOMRA Sorting’s fully automated, state-of-the-art, sensor-based municipal sorting systems convert complex and varied - even dirty - municipal solid waste streams into high quality, separated, marketable output. The systems also make manual sorting unnecessary, thus reducing labor costs and material loss, while increasing efficiency. Operationally, through using detection techniques such as near infrared (NIR), x-ray transmission (XRT), color line cameras and metal sensors in combination.

  • Gas detection analyzers for solvent based printing industry

    Solvent based inks in different colors and patterns are applied to paper, plastic, film and foil substrates. Finished products include all sorts of wrapping paper, wall covering, candy wrappers, flexible food packages, shrink labels, high quality magazines and many, many more. These industries employ ovens or dryers to remove the solvents from the finished product.
