- Model XRF-P - Plastics Sorting System for Recognition of Chemical Composition



The REDWAVE XRF technology separates material on the basis of chemical composition. This sorting system could revolutionize the whole market of plastic recycling. There is an extraordinarily high demand for a sorting machine capable of segregating dark PVC and brominated plastic from an infeed of shredded plastic.

Managing Director, Heinrich Fuchs:
'Our extensive experience in plastics sorting and our proven mechanical equipment combined with Olymup ANI's XRF expertise will allow us to bring this much needed technology to market and offer a solution for the recyclers.'

 This technology was developed in collaboration with Olypus ANI Systems. Olympus ANI is a world-leading innovator of portable/on-site XRF technology, offering handheld, mobile laboratory, and high volume in-line systems for a wide variety of industries. The XRF technology provides unique solutions, and has already proven to be a welcome addition to existing sorting technologies in both glass and metal recycling markets.
