AUTOSORT, a highly efficient piece of equipment
AUTOSORT affords numerous benefits for the recycling sector in the form of state-of-the-art sorting technology. The near infrared (NIR) sensor recognises materials based on their specific spectral properties while the VIS sensor can distinguish all the colours of the visible spectrum. The combination of the two sensors means that these units can meet both basic and extremely complex needs, enabling simultaneous sorting by both material type and colour within a single modular sorting system. The units installed at the Las Dehesas Centre are fitted only with NIR sensors and sorting is by material type, regardless of colour.
“For greater convenience, a central display system was installed to enable the operation of the units to be checked without having to view the display screen of each individual optical sorter. This enables changes to be implemented more rapidly and more precisely,” points out Fernando Cortés Moreno. Mr Cortés Moreno also highlights the simple maintenance requirements of the AUTOSORT units: “Thus far, we can confirm that basic maintenance is simple.”
AUTOSORT units are extremely versatile, with a number of different configuration options. They are easy to use and adapt very well to customer needs. According to Luis Sánchez Vela, “This operational simplicity is very beneficial. It enables operators to adjust the configuration of the unit with ease so that the material to be separated can be changed whenever the need arises.”
