TOMRA Sorting Recycling presented the new INNOSORT FLAKE at PRSE (Plastic Recycling Show Europe). Presented under the slogan “Materially different with excellent results”, the innovative PET flake dual-sensor sorting solution is equipped with the unique combination of RGB cameras and ultra-high resolution NIR sensors from the market leader TOMRA to sort plastic fractions from 2 to 12 mm by color and simultaneously by polymer types.
TOMRA Sorting's Product Manager Recycling, Valerio Sama, stated: “As the rPET industry is focused on better rates for high-grade outputs, INNOSORT FLAKE offers a perfect all-in-one solution for plastic recovery facilities looking to achieve high-quality yields, reduce loss and optimize their operations to improve the cost structures of their business.”
Premium rPET grades with high yields
INNOSORT FLAKE features TOMRA’s patented FLYING BEAM® technology – the secret to its great accuracy. The high speed, high precision NIR sensors enable 2mm polymer recognition, significantly reducing loss of valuable PET flake material, with final losses averaging below 2%. The sensor detects the material properties of a broad range of polymers, so that contaminants such as PVC, PE, PP, PA and POM are eliminated, resulting in higher quality yields. The reliable removal of PVC, metals and opaque flakes results in rPET grades that meet the high quality standards that attract better rates, ensuring greater profitability of the customer’s product output.
