Based on proven Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) technology, the QXR-EW system is ideal for E-Recycling industry.

The only automated, high volume technology based on highly specific Chemistry, not physical property - and that benefits you directly because:

  • High accuracy of separation (90% and above)
  • Only method to find the RoHS compliant material (plastics)
  • Economically viable throughput of tons/hour


  • In-Feed Plastics
    • Remove PVC from mixed plastics, regardless of color or carbon black content
    • Remover brominated plastics from high value engineered plastic mix to render a recyclable product
    • Remove toxic and heavy metal bearing plastics from engineered plastic mix
    • Extract PCB's
    • Create a marketable product for waste to energy / waste to fuel applications
  • In-Feed Metals
    • Create a stainless steel free Cu wire product
    • Remove Pb bearing components from a mixture of E-waste metals
    • Create a clean (Cu and Al free) stainless steel product
    • Grade stainless to extract higher value components
    • Create a melt-ready Al product for secondary smelter market
  • In-Feed Glass (CRTs sorted by OEM specifications)
    • Sort mixed CRT glass by OEM specification


  • Pricing (components only or complete turnkey systems your choice)
  • System designed specifically to your process configuration
  • Integrates nicely with other technologies eddy current, magnetic separation, density separation, IR/NIR, etc.
