Thanks to high throughput XRT technology, metals, inert materials, plastics and glass can be detected and sorted out by their atomic density. The machine’s sophisticated technology can even detect wood chips with nails, compound materials and overlapping objects in an instant, increasing recovery and purity rates significantly. Recent updates to the high-power x-ray source that TOMRA offers with a warranty of 16,000 hours, provide a more robust sorting performance.
Following the establishment of a dedicated team for the wood segment, TOMRA has also recently expanded its service team to ensure minimal downtime and best-in-class service. Markus Brauer, who comes with long experience in TOMRA’s Mining business, has been appointed Team Leader Field Service Wood explains: “I have been working with X-TRACT™ for 11 years. With my expertise gained in this challenging environment, I supported the development of the machine. TOMRA’s commitment to constantly improving performance is evident with the latest updates. The machine delivers reliable results and is easy and safe to maintain. Our customers value the competitive edge the machine gives them.”
