Added value from waste electrical and electronic equipment and the latest glass recycling systems


At IFAT 2014 S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH of Schönberg, Bavaria, are showing the new WEEE-SORT sorting system (hall C1, stand 411/512). These sorting systems are used in e-waste recycling where they sort mixed material flows into uniform fractions making a valuable and positive contribution to the sorting and profitable recycling of plastics, metals, and printed circuit boards back into the production cycle.


WEEE-SORT is specifically designed to meet the needs of e-waste sorting and which, using a variety of sensors offers outstanding flexibility. No matter the type of e-waste to be sorted, WEEE-SORT with its multi-sensor capability – near-infrared, colour, and metal – is equal to the task. Multiple lighting and air-blast units ensure the best separation accuracy, for example, for printed circuit board fractions, whilst simultaneously optimising energy consumption.  


In the e-waste industry the markets for recycled materials change rapidly, and quality demands for recycled material are high plus: recycled material must compete with the price of new material. The WEEE-SORT system with its inherent flexibility is a future-proof investment.


Glass recycling news

KRS Recycling Systems, an S+S subsidiary and partner in glass recycling, is sharing the IFAT stand with S+S and is showing the latest version of the K9 glass sorting system. K9 is used for the colour separation of cullet down to a grain size of five millimetres. Its main application is for quality improvement in the recycling of fine , hollow  and flat glass and offers very high throughput rates.


K9 FLASH will analyse information for up to nine different light wavelength ranges. The combination of different lighting allows the identification of colours, CSP (ceramics, stones, porcelain), and special glasses, which are then efficiently separated by highly accurate air-blast nozzles.
