Using the latest technology available to recycle co-mingled fractions, not only reduces the waste stream, it is also a profitable way of recovering materials such as Fe, N-Fe, St/St, precious metals, plastics (PP, PE, PVC, ABS, HIPS, PET) and Glass (Flint, Green, Amber). Hamos, Goudsmit, Mesutronic, SEA and Visys are pioneers in these recycling technologies, capable of reclaiming materials in a cost effective and efficient way.
Hamos – Electrostatic and Triboelectric Separators
The range of Hamos electrostatic and triboelectric separators can sort polymers (even Black) and recover conductive from non-conductive fractions, widely used for the recovery of WEEE, ASR, PVC Window Frames, PET flake to name a few. Typical polymers recovered are: HDPE, PP, ABS, PS, PVC, Elastomers, PET, PP-filled. No liquids are required for the separation and a single system can separate many different plastics, regardless of specific weight or colour.

SEA – Optical Sorters (Full Colour & NIR)
The SEA Chrome optical sorter is equipped with full RGB (and optional NIR or UV) cameras, with a resolution of 0.1 mm. Optical sorters can recover precious materials and remove non-conforming products, thus improving the overall purity of the final output. Systems can automatically be configured to run with or without re-pass mode, giving you the option to increase productivity and/or final quality. The SEA Vetro sorters are industry standard for sorting Glass (Flint, Green, Amber, CSP & Metal rejection) and the removal of Pyro Glass.
Goudsmit – Magnetic Systems
Goudsmit produce a unique range of magnetic separation systems, capable of recovering even the finest magnetic and non-magnetic particles. The range of eccentric Eddy Current Separators (ECS) with up to 950 pole changes p/sec, can separate even the finest non-ferrous fractions (>0.5 mm) from the product stream, without the risk of rotor burn-in. The all metal sorter (I-Sens) can remove any type of metal, such as N-Fe, Fe, St/St, from the product stream at high capacity. Product range also includes: High gradient, Neoflux, Over-band, Head roller and Block magnets.

Mesutronic – Metal Detectors and Metal Separators
Mesutronic metal detectors and metal separators are used for machine protection and the removal of metal contamination within a non-conductive product mix. This simple and cost effective measure reduces the machine downtime and improves the final product quality.
Key Technology – Optical Sorters (Laser & NIR)
The Key Technology laser sorters are capable of distinguishing between colour, shape and textures. The Near Infra-Red (NIR) sorters can sort different polymers >10 mm.
