Equipment Spotlight – Optical Sorters
McLanahan produces two lines of optical sorters – the ECOPACK and the ECOGLASS – both of which are powered by PICVISA technology. Optical Sorters are able to sort products based on several factors, such as composition and color. Completely automated, they eliminate the need for any manual sorting of materials. When maintenance is required, the system is easily accessible and off-the-shelf spare parts are available worldwide.

Equipment Spotlight – Ballistic Separators
Ballistic Separators separate 2-D materials, such as paper, from 3-D materials, such as bottles, cans, etc. Capable of achieving a three fraction split in one machine, they are often used in industries such as municipal solid waste, single stream recycling, commercial industrial waste, plastic sorting, RDF, and more. Ballistic Separators are completely enclosed, meaning less exposure to both dust and noise. They are fully automated and feature simple, adjust-on-the-fly technology to change the speed and pitch of the ballistic deck for different materials.
