At IFAT ENTSORGA 2012 (hall C1, stand 407/506) S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH of Schönberg in Bavaria will launch the new K9 FLASH glass sorting system. A totally new development, used in the recycling of thin-sheet, container and flat glass, K9 FLASH will separate unwanted colour particles and CSP (ceramics, stones, porcelain) from the cullet flow with minimum loss of good material. It will also detect and remove special glasses such as Ceran.
The space efficient design minimizes glass breakage and features new specific light technology. These new features allow for a higher throughput capacity with precise detection. K9 FLASH identifies contaminants and glass by colour and will remove “out of specification glass” from the material flow that is indistinguishable to the human eye.
K9 FLASH scans across up to nine different wavelength ranges. This allows identification of colour, CSP and heat-resistant special glass. Unwanted material is removed from the material flow by air-ejection nozzles operating within one millisecond.
Hans Eder, S+S development manager, comments: "Integral to the new system design are the many years of experience of our subsidiary KRS Recycling Systems GmbH. KRS has designed and built many turn-key glass recycling plants for both container and flat glass worldwide. Extending the colour spectrum analysis from the three basic colours to nine and increasing pixel resolution to 0.2mm sets new accuracy standards in the field of glass sorting."
At IFAT ENTSORGA S+S will also be showing the proven VARISORT COMPACT multi-sorting system for plastics recycling. Major advantages of the COMPACT are its flexibility and the abil-ity to combine sensor technologies.
