E-Scrap

 

Electrical waste systems to increase recovery and reduce impact.

The shorter life cycles on all electronic equipment is creating a growing demand for the proper recycling of computers, cell phones, televisions and other electronic devices. NRT provides complete systems for processing circuit boards, precious metals, plastics, panel glass, funnel glass and other commodities in this rapidly-expanding market segment. As the designers of In-Flight Sorting® technology, we continue to actualize new and effective solutions. Electrical waste contains hazardous but also valuable and scarce materials; custom sorts can be configured to suit requirements of changing market conditions, as many can be easily identified with NRT’s advanced technology. NRT installations are achieving leading purity rates, removing contaminate with near-zero product loss. Our equipment offers real-time analysis of material streams to allow customers to track material composition and results.

SORTING TECHNOLOGY

NIR

Near Infrared Spectrometry

SpydIR® -R An advanced infrared sorting system that separates numerous selected polymers from a mixed stream. Designed to identify and sort E-Scrap plastics into user defined polymer groups. SpydIR® -R Equipment Page

SpydIR®-T Uses transmissive technology and fast, highly-sensitive algorithms to rapidly identify unique polymer “signatures” from their infrared spectra. Separates HDPE -N from either HDPE and/or mixed plastics streams; identifies PET, including thin-walled PET and wrapped PET. SpydIR® -T Equipment Page

Online Analyzer™ Monitors PVC content and low melt content data which are measured and displayed on a industrialized computer screen. Designed to retain historical data such as contamination levels, with capabilities to send alarms to process PLC for contaminated flake diversion.

VIS & RGB

Visual Spectrometry & Color Line Scan Camera

ColorPlus™ An advanced image processing system that targets and sorts materials based on color analysis and sophisticated object recognition. Designed to separate polymers from circuit boards and separate black polymers from colored polymers. ColorPlus™ Equipment Page 

EM

Electromagnetic metal sensor

MetalDirector™ Uses advanced electromagnetic sensing technology integrated with the sorter’s ejection system for the removal of aluminum cans and other metal objects. Designed for installation into any process line to extract all valuable metals such as: Fe, Al, SS, Cu, and Zn, from a polymer stream on materials. MetalDirector™ Equipment Page

MetalDirector™ Flake Uses advanced electromagnetic sensing technology integrated with the sorter’s ejection system for the removal of aluminum cans and other metal objects. Designed for separation of ferrous and non-ferrous metal particles down to 1mm in size. MetalDirector™ Flake Equipment Page

X-RAY

X-Ray Dual Energy X-Ray & X-Ray Fluorescent 

TruSort® with DXRT™ An advanced dual energy X-Ray sorting system designed to separate materials at high throughput rates according to composition. Designed for sorts that require identification of material by atomic density. Applications include separation of panel glass from funnel glass in CRT material streams. Removal of fire retardant containing polymers and the separation of PCB from other plastics and heavy metals from lighter metals, such as aluminum.  TruSort® with DXRT™ Equipment Page

TruSort® with XRF™ An advanced X-Ray Fluorescent sorting system designed to separate materials at high throughput rates according to elemental atomic identification. Designed for sorts that require identification of material by atomic element. Applications include separation of panel glass from funnel glass in CRT material streams. Removal of fire retardant containing polymers and the separation of PCB from other plastics and heavy metals from lighter metals, such as aluminum.  TruSort® with XRF™ Equipment Page

Listed Equipment can be integrated at different levels within designed layouts. We are available to discuss the best solution to achieve industry best results for current and future challenges.
