STEINERT introduces UniSort Film Hyper Spectral Imaging System
New system sorts paper and plastic fractions with increased accuracy and 3x faster operation
STEINERT US has introduced the UniSort Film sensor sorter, with the ability to efficiently and accurately sort paper, plastic film and bags to help Recyclers reach today's export paper grade standards.
The challenge for sorting lightweight plastics and paper is the flyaway nature of the material. STEINERT addresses this challenge with its state-of-the-art Active Object Control (AOC) System. The AOC is a stabilizing system which controls the way the material is sent through the equipment for sorting, keeping material from getting trapped in the machinery and causing damage. Using air injection at the beginning of the process allows the material to be spread out before it reaches the belt, resulting in higher purity and recovery of the end product. As such, the UniSort Film provides automatic sorting of the film fractions with significantly higher throughput rate and substantially improved sorting results compared to standard machines not equipped with AOC. UniSort Film opens the door to sorting functions previously unavailable with standard technology.
AOC also enables the UniSort Film to operate at close to three times higher belt speed in comparison to standard settings, providing higher throughput with better sorting results. Additionally, the UniSort Film's closed-air system produces no discharge of dust, mold or other waste contaminants.
Equipped with ultra-modern HSI (Hyper Spectral Imaging) camera technology, the UniSort Film ensures an exceptionally high degree of flexibility and future usability for material sorting operations including paper, conventional PVC film, bio-based film, biodegradable film, agricultural film, packaging and more.
