Sensor Sorting

As variable as you want – VARISORT

With the VARISORT product family from the traditional Bavarian company Sesotec, we offer our customers the optimum technical solution for sensor-based sorting of bulk goods containing different materials. Since the 70’s, our partner has concerned itself with sorting and detecting metals and foreign materials. A leading company in the field, the concern develops and manufactures products on its own premises to give you the edge in the recycling market: state-of-the-art sensor technology tailormade exactly to your requirements.

Depending on the task at hand, different detection sensors in the VARISORT are used:

• Multi-channel metal sensor
• Multi-channel metal sensor M+
• CCD color camera system C
• Multi-spectral near-infrared system N
• Dual-energy x-ray transmission system XT

With Sesotec as a technology supplier, we can draw on decades of know-how about separating detected materials. An adapted feed system helps to optimally distribute and settle the material on the acceleration conveyor to enable material fragments to be accurately removed from the flow of bulk goods by blasts of compressed air. It doesn’t matter whether the fragments are large or small: we’ve got just the solution you need:

• VARISORT BIG – for integration into typical NF-Downstream Plants after eddy current separation
• VARISORT WEEE – specially designed for sorting electronic waste and scrap metal
• VARISORT COMPACT – ideal for really fine-grained fragments

And that’s not all: VARISORT also allows you to combine different sensors for even more sorting applications:

• Sorting cables, coins etc.
• Separating Printed Circuit Boards
• Producing a mixed plastics fraction

When are you going to challenge us with a sorting task?

A comprehensively-equipped technical center is at your disposal for customer trials. We’ll be happy to show you the machines you’ll be using to separate your bulk materials in the future.

Useful things for day-to-day operation

Whether it’s motor-driven rolling separator vertices, a self-adjusting belt scrapper or even the data management and remote maintenance system VISUTEC: they can be added to your sorting configuration as desired.
The valve exchange is easy to manage by access from the rear and a maintenance platform. The operation and adjustment of settings is extremly easy. Operators having worked with other machines before praise the positive differences which make the operatives superior.
