Infrared separator

The Mistral separator machine, uses Infra Red technology and has been upgraded to recognize more and more polymers, and especially very similar types of polymer bottles like LDPE and HDPE bottles. The Mistral mix-Plastics is designed to recognize and to sort up to 20 polymers at the same time with up to 95 percent purity. Also the combination of two technologies (NIR +Vision) allows the separation of plastics by type and by colour. For example, the unit distinguishes between PET (clear, green,), HPDE (Natural, coloured), mix plastics (#3-7) and milk cartons.
