REDWAVE will be located in Hall C1 at stand 226 at the IFAT in Munich (Germany) from May 30 to June 3. You will see different live sorting demonstrations with the innovative REDWAVE XRF sorting machine at our stand:
- Mixed heavy metals: separation of pure fractions (eg: copper, zinc, stainless steel)
- Mixed plastics: separation of brominated plastics
- Mixed glass: separation of lead glass and heat resistant glass
The sorting system REDWAVE XRF was initially used in the field of glass sorting, more precisely for the separation of heat-resistant and leaded glass from the waste glass cullet. Soon it became apparent that the fields of application go far beyond the glass sector. The use of this innovative technology together with the development of a new machine design set new standards in the metal sorting, in particular the sorting of nonferrous metals. Using this technology it is possible to separate also material which, up to now, was considered as not sortable.
Besides the high throughput and purity, the flexible and versatile application possibility of the XRF sorting technology is a great advantage compared to sorting techniques such as camera or X-ray transmission. The applicability of the X-ray fluorescence technology is very multifaceted and not limited to one material class or application. Compared to other technologies, moisture, coloring and surface contamination have no significant negative impact on the detection. High-purity metal fractions are produced due to the sorting processes, which can be sold directly and profitably. The flexibility of the XRF technique and the sophisticated sorting logic make it possible to respond to changes of the sorting processes as quick as possible. Furthermore, a great variety of sorting steps can be carried out with the same machine and different preset sorting programs.
