Sensor-based sorting specialist Tomra Sorting Recycling will be demonstrating the latest additions to its technologies at RWM.
Coinciding with its 10th anniversary in the UK, Tomra will launch its Autosort Laser for glass, as well as introducing laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and the updated X-Tract, two additions to its metals sorting portfolio.
Autosort Laser can help to recover more than 95% of glass from municipal waste.
Its LIBS technology, for the first time, can sort and separate different aluminium wrought alloys and achieve high levels of separation efficiency. Sorting accuracies range above 99% purity with throughputs of 3-7 tonnes an hour.
And the updated X-Tract separates a variety of metals with high precision by combining X-ray transmission and Duoline technology. Purities of 98-99% can be achieved, even from a varied mix and with small grain sizes.
