Reiling recycles almost all types of container and flat glass and also processes glass from photovoltaic modules. Through KRS Recycling Systems GmbH, a company specialising in recycling systems for the hollow and flat glass industry, the companies of the Reiling group have already been using several generations of Sesotec recycling sorting systems.
As head office and biggest facility, Reiling Marienfeld was one of the first companies using the new Sesotec K9 systems. In Marienfeld the K9 recycling sorting systems among others are used for the colour sorting of cullet starting from a grain size of three millimetres. The result is a considerable quality improvement in the recycling of fine, hollow, and flat glass, with high throughput capacities.
At this facility the K9 separators also demonstrate their advantages in the field of glass recycling. In a specifically designed reject system all of the separated material (rejects) from the main systems is processed once again to recover high-quality end products and to considerably minimise the total amount of waste and loss of glass. After several drying processes the material is screened and is then sent through K9 separators that are divided on two sorting lines.
The latest installation at the Reiling plant in Osterweddingen comprises a coarse and medium grain line without drying. In this line Sesotec sorting systems of type Spektrum Basic are used for the separation of CSP and metals.
