Tomra Sorting Recycling says it will launch its latest x-ray sorting machine, which can improve the recovery of heavy metals and aluminum, at the ISRI 2016 Convention & Exposition in Las Vegas, April 2-7.
The company says the upgraded sensor-based sorting machine, the X-Tract, is equipped with a new sensor, which boosts the sorting machine’s performance and stability.
The enhanced sorting system can secure higher metal recovery purity, fewer product losses and a consistent product quality. Additionally, salable by-products can also be recovered.
Tomra Sorting Recycling’s designers have also reduced the machine’s operating costs, as well as deliver upgraded fractions, the company says. New user-friendly features include an intuitive and flexible touch-screen interface for process control and adjustment.
Frank van de Winkel, Tomra Sorting Recycling business development manager metals, says the upgraded X-Tract’s features will benefit a range of customers, from large public entities to small, private firms.
