Unrivaled sorting accuracy and purification of aluminum from super lights and heavy metals.

Built on a long-standing legacy in diamond mining and metal sorting, X-TRACT™’s high-performance design combines machine intelligence with a reliable transmission (XRT) setup. The top-down design protects the x-ray source from dirt, preventing costly maintenance, while its optimal source-to-sensor positioning provides more precise detection and faster integration times.

Every aspect of the XRT sorting system, including its robust mechanics, high resolution sensor and software features was developed in-house by our experts and engineers. With optional x-ray power supply up to 1000W, the machine delivers high throughput processing across multiple applications and grain sizes, including aluminum fines and copper wires.

X-TRACT™ effortlessly handles complex material streams and overlapping objects with its Dual Processing Technology that gives operators the flexibility to prioritize sorting for either high recovery or high purity yields. Aluminum alloys, magnesium and other materials are instantly classified using TOMRA’s exclusive software-defined density ranges, making X-TRACT™ the ideal solution for processing furnace-ready aluminum twitch.
