Sorter can incorporate three sensors

Oct. 30, 2020
Upgraded Sesotec Varisort+ can incorporate up to three sensors — near infrared, color/shape and metal — to speed and improve sorting of incoming material, and accurately separates plastics by type, color and shape.

Varisort+: This sorting system from Sesotec offers upgrades from the original Varisort. It can incorporate up to three sensors  near infrared, color/shape and metal  to speed and improve sorting of incoming material. It accurately separates plastics by type, color and shape, and excludes metals and foreign objects. Optionally, it can be configured with three chutefor sorting the material stream into three fractions. Varisort+ can work with conveyor belts in widths of 3.4 feet, 5 feet, 6.3 feet or 9.2 feet. Sesotec sorting systems are distributed in the U.S. and Canada by KRS Inc. 

What’s new? The Varisort+, which debuted in July. 

Benefits: Improved profitability. With a throughput of up to 8 tons per hour and a rejection accuracy rate of up to 99 percent, Varisort+ separates very pure fractions, wringing value out of a material stream. Design improvements have made it easier to clean and maintain, decreasing downtime and improving efficiency. Its sensors can be upgraded throughout the life of the product.
