At the recycling facility of R.M.B. near Lago di Garda in Italy thousands of tons of incinerated bottom ash and non-ferrous metals from car-shred are being recycled every month. In 2016, R.M.B. decided to install a rental a REDWAVE unit for testing purposes and soon after this test period they purchased their REDWAVE XRF/C. With that machine the foundation was laid, and RMB quickly realized the full potential of the technology. Now, two years later R.M.B. invested in 5 large REDWAVE XRF/C machines for a new line to sort all their different metal fractions.
This is so far the largest order of single-machines for REDWAVE in the metal recycling area in history. “I am thankful and proud R.M.B. puts so much trust in our XRF/C-technology. This order proves that the value created by our technology justifies the investment” says Martin Weiss, Global Sales Manager for REDWAVE XRF/C.
With REDWAVE XRF-technology (X-ray Fluorescence) it is possible to identify and sort all kinds of metals even when coming from incineration where the surface is not representative of the material itself. It is possible to sort metals by type, even fraction of precious metals can be identified and separated.
