Fully automated systems, ECOPACK Optical Sorters feature adjustability for a variety of different materials, including resorted, curbside, single stream or municipal solid waste flow; industrial residues; plastic bales for recycling; or even mining materials. Automation also eliminates the need for any manual labor for recycling and sorting materials.
When maintenance is required, personnel have easy access to all elements of the system. ECOPACK Optical Sorters utilize off the shelf spare parts that are available worldwide. They also feature a telediagnosis system for remote service.
ECOPACK Optical Sorters from McLanahan utilize proven MultiSpectral Technology from PICVISA, which has been used in hundreds of machines around the world. This technology allows ECOPACK Optical Sorters to sort material between 0.8″ (20mm) and 16″ (400mm) at processing speeds of up to eight tons/hour depending on the material input and size. The ECOPACK Optical Sorter was designed with a closer distance between the vision system and ejection unit to minimize material loss, as well as blowing nozzles every 0.2″ (5mm) for a more precise separation and less reject fraction.
