Complete solution for plastic recyclers

Bühler Sortex and National Recovery Technologies (NRT) will be showcasing their complete solution for bottle and flake sorting in at K 2016 in Düsseldorf on the 19-26 October.
Peter von Bechen,

Aimed at PET and HDPE recyclers, the strategic partnership brings together over 100 years of optical sorting know-how to the industry – with unrivalled colour, polymer, metal and foreign material removal, from bottle to flake.

The portfolio includes the new, pioneering range of NRT SpydIR bottle sorters, which use proprietary technology and fast, highly sensitive algorithms to rapidly identify unique polymer ‘signatures’ from their infrared spectra. SpydIR is the only technology that uses PET Boost that improves detection of thin-wall PET, wet PET and full-sleeve labelled PET and is also equipped with NRT’s patented In-Flight Sorting technology which detects and ejects materials in flight for higher purity rates.

Also on display will be Bühler’s SORTEX E PolyVision flake sorter. Designed exclusively for PET recyclers, it is equipped with the latest advancements in polymer sorting, to remove non-PET flakes from clear, blue, green and jazz applications with unrivalled precision and ease. Its SORTEX PolyVision technology uses a unique combination of transparent and reflective sorting simultaneously, to identify invisible and same-colour polymer contaminants by their unique chemical signature, dramatically improving the separation of clear polymers from clear PET for higher grade bottle-to-bottle rPET.
