Visitors to Stand D3 will be able to learn about TOMRA’s X-TRACT technology. TOMRA X-TRACT enables sorting by recovering ready-to-melt aluminium fractions with a purity of 99%. XRT technology also enables substances to be separated according to their atomic density, regardless of their colour and surface impurities. TOMRA's X-TRACT X6 FINES identifies and classifies grain sizes that are almost half the size of those that could previously be processed (as low as 5mm).
In addition, the heavy metals separated using the X-TRACT X6 FINES can be further separated by colour, brightness and shape using TOMRA’s COMBISENSE system, ensuring high purity fractions from even the most difficult waste streams. COMBISENSE can sort high value non-ferrous metals by colour, such as zinc grey metals, copper and brass. It also uses multiparameter fraction separation techniques for creating fraction of PCBs, wires and coins.
Brian Gist, Head of TOMRA UK and Sales Manager Northern Europe Recycling at TOMRA Recycling, comments: “We are delighted to be taking part in this year’s CARS event. After such a long hiatus in face-to-face trade events, the show is an ideal platform for us to highlight our latest solutions which address the challenges of metals recovery from automotive waste.”
