Global – The BÃ¼hler Group launched its new Optical Sorting Station (OSS) at the K 2013 trade fair for plastics and rubber which took place on October 16-23 in DÃ¼sseldorf, Germany. According to the UK-based manufacturer, the OSS features various elements of optical sorting, including plant engineering, sorting technology, pneumatic conveyors, pre-conditioners and also auxiliary equipment.
The system is integrated and so processors no longer need to source-separate elements from multiple suppliers, BÃ¼hler says. For flake processing, the OSS features a purifying, refining, sizing and grading stage which can include one or more Sortex optical sorters. According to BÃ¼hler, these are linked by the necessary equipment to convey the product between stages and, if required, to reintroduce it into the system for resorting.
