Source segregated materials
In addition to post-separation, we also have source separation. Source segregated materials consists mainly of plastic, metal and beverage cartons.
The source-separated packaging comprises roughly 40% of foils and ferrous and non-ferrous metals, cartons and rigid plastics.
First, the bags are opened and the raw material is separated in a sieve. Wind shifters and a ballistic separator ensure that the sheets are separated from the source-separated packaging. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals are separated by using a magnet and eddy current.
The beverage cartons and plastics in PET, PE, PP and MIX are separated from plastic fragments, by placing a number of Near Infrared (NIR) scanners in series. Quality control inspectors ensure that the plastic mono-streams meet the desired specifications. The plastic mono-streams are then pressed into bales to serve as raw materials for the plastics processing industry.
In the 2D stream, paper and foils are sorted and separated by means of wind shifters. The paper and foil fraction then goes through NIR-scanners for further processing.
The separation plant for source separated materials can be customized, designed and implemented with a processing capacity of 1 ton / hour to 15 tons / hour.
