Aladdin optical sorting technology 

 Designed for high-capacity optical sorting of plastic bottles by resin type and colour, MSS Inc's Aladdin, standard module, generates two or three output streams from one input stream. In a split configuration it can sort two input streams at the same time generating a total of up to six outputs.  

The Aladdin has integrated color and near infrared (NIR) sensing, providing precise plastic resin and color identification simultaneously in one module. An integrated automated sensor cleaning system also ensures maximum uptime. The Aladdin can also separate opaque from transparent objects and provides double signal intensity for transparent objects (light-blue PET, PVC/PET).  

Incoming material is distributed over the machine width and travels underneath the sensor array, which is mounted on top and at the end of a high/speed acceleration belt.   NIR and color sensors identify material type and color of all objects passing through the sensor. State-of-the-art electronics process the detected signals and activate air valves which eject the targeted material upward/downward into a chute.  

A touchscreen user interface allows full setup control. Factory software upgrades and advanced diagnostics are available via modem /network connection.  

ALADDIN MODELS:
A-1600-3 - Sorting Capacity 4.0 tons/hr  
Sorting Efficiency 90-95% 
Electrical Requirements approx. 10kW

​MSS Announces Next Generation of Metal Recovery Technology

MetalMiner uses MapLine technology that allows users to target specific metal types or objects by amplifying the sensitivity for non-ferrous metals, especially wire, while simultaneously reducing it for ferrous dust.

Nashville, TN - MSS, Inc., the optical sorter division of CP Group, has introduced MetalMiner, the next generation of induction-based true all-metal detectors. MSS has designed and built induction metal sorters for over 40 years, and this latest iteration was designed specifically to handle auto shredder residue (ASR), electronic scrap, plastic flake and glass cullet applications. One of the most relevant new technical features of the MetalMiner is the patent pending MapLine algorithm.

MSS optical sorters feature updated wire and colour sorting technologies

The new L-VIS optical sorter with updated ColorMask and WireHawk technologies.

MSS, Inc., the optical sorter division of the CP Group, is introducing two technology updates for its L-VIS high-resolution colour and shape optical sorter. ColorMask is MSS's proprietary illuminated reference technology and is featured in all L-VIS units. The most recent design update features improved sorting accuracy for materials with difficult colours and weak contrast, like dark green circuit boards and black insulated wires. The L-VIS analyzes materials in flight over the ColorMask illuminated reference which is adjustable in colour and light intensity for maximum contrast and accuracy.
