The MikroSort® AX is specially designed for the sorting of big quantities of rejected material and strongly impurified recycled hollow glass ware within a particle range of 5 to 60 mm.
Recycling glass makes different demands on the automatic sorting system. The material is hardly ever washed, is often wet due to outdoor storage and contains, in addition to the actual undesired colours and CSP (ceramic material/stones/porcelain), a lot of other fine material, paper and organic residues. For the end product, however, even the finest differences must be detected, i.e. it must be possible to tell white from light green, ceramic fragments from white glass with paper labels and chocolate residues from brown glass.
In order to meet these requirements, the material is detected in free fall and by means of a special illumination. Contamination by fine material and paper is minimised by appropriate measures and all relevant areas are equipped with automatic cleaning systems.
As such, the sorting stays very stable on a high level, even under unfavourable conditions.
