The MSort X-Ray can be used to efficiently sort out undesirable materials such as lead glass and glass-ceramics in glass recycling processes. This technology also opens the door to new applications related to mineral sorting and to many other fields.
The MSort X-Ray sorting system measures the attenuation of the corresponding X-rays with
2 measuring channels in various wavelength ranges. The readings are then mathematically combined in order to calculate the relevant material thickness. This means that the mean atomic density is available as a sorting criterion that is independent of particle size, particle shape, chunk weight, surface color, and impurities.
