REDWAVE - a division of BT-Wolfgang Binder GmbH

- Model XRF-G - XRF Glass Sorting Machine



REDWAVE XRF-G Sorting machines are used in glass processing for the separation of lead glass and ceramic (heat resistant glasses). The elemental composition of the fragments is analysed by X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy. Particular elements, such as zinc, zirconium, strontium or lead, are searched for, to allow a precise evaluation of the shards. Contaminants are identified and separated.

  • Sensor technology: EDXRF energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer
  • Sorting width: 450 / 900 / 1370mm
  • Capacity: up to 28 t/h depending on the sorting width
  • Execution: Belt system, 2-way or 3-way
  • Sortable fraction: from 6 to 60 mm cullet size

  • Separation of ceramic and leaded glass in one process step
  • No impairment of sorting efficiency through the presence of coloured shards, dirt, moisture, or labels
  • High throughput rate
  • Accurate detection of elements, therefore no misinterpretations as with other technologies (e.g. fluorescence effect caused by another not lead-containing UV detection of lead glass)
