Although the ECOGLASS Optical Sorter does not require an operator, when maintenance is required, personnel have easy access to all elements of the system. Parts can be replaced using off-the-shelf spare parts that are available worldwide, and the LED light has a 10-year expected lifetime. The system also utilizes telediagnosis for remote service.
Using a high resolution camera, ECOGLASS Optical Sorters are capable of sorting pieces between 0.1″ (3mm) and 2.3″ (60mm) at processing speeds of 7-10 tons/hour or higher based on input material. The ECOGLASS Optical Sorter is designed with a higher distance between the system and detection plane, keeping it cleaner for longer periods of time. Blowing nozzles every 0.2″ (5mm) ensure a more precise separation and less reject fraction.
