Unrivaled speed and accuracy in separating low from high density objects from complex material streams.

X-TRACT™ is a high throughput sorting solution that harnesses the power of dual energy x-ray transmission (XRT) to detect and separate objects based on their atomic density.
The machine’s top-down design protects the x-ray source from dust and dirt to prevent costly maintenance. It also comes with optimal source-to-sensor positioning providing more precise detection and higher throughput. 

Every aspect of the XRT sorting system, including its robust mechanics, high precision sensors and software features was developed in-house by our experts and engineers. With x-ray power supply of up to 1000W, X-TRACT™ provides high-speed processing across multiple applications and grain sizes, including aluminum fines and copper wires.

X-TRACT™ effortlessly handles composite materials and overlapping objects with its Dual Processing Technology, allowing operators to prioritize sorting for either high recovery or high purity yields. Thanks to its Multi-Density Channels that use software-defined ranges to classify object at high throughput speeds, X-TRACT™ is the ideal solution for recovering high-value materials from complex material streams.
