Metal sorting

Metal detection and recovery/removal has become an increasing demand from our C&D to Plastic recycler customers. Eagle Vizion has introduced a new option to the optical sorter; a metal detection unit that can be installed to work in parallel with the NIR Vizion system or it can also be installed as a standalone unit.

  • The metal detection is done using induction sensors that are placed beneath the conveyor belt.
  • The single layer is important as the detectors can only detect a certain height above the belt
  • Metal sorter will detect
    • Metallic foils such as some found inside Cartons (juice cartons)
    • Electronic pcb boards
    • Aluminum cans
