Proven and innovative - Sesotec plastics sorting systems

| Recycling technology | Sesotec GmbH | Schönberg | Germany

For more than 40 years Sesotec GmbH has been one of the market leaders in the fields of contaminant separation and sorting technology. For the recycling of plastics Sesotec has developed both standard solutions and individual turnkey solutions. Sesotec systems reliably differentiate plastics by means of various sorting technologies and efficiently separate them into fractions of pure colours and sorts. Sesotec's portfolio covers the complete range of contaminant separation and sorting: From the VARISORT system for the sorting of whole plastic bottles through to  PET flake sorting with FLAKE PURIFIER+ systems.

The FLAKE PURIFIER+ multi-sensor sorting system that was comprehensively modified in 2017 features optimised material infeeding for a more evenly distributed material flow and increased material throughput. It also allows easier maintenance and integration. The system's dust-proof design and integrated dust and label extraction connections provide increased efficiency in the recycling process. All Sesotec multi-sensor sorting systems are available with all sensor combinations and in various working widths

Michael Perl, Head of BU Sorting Recycling at Sesotec about the FLAKE PURIFIER+: "In the modification of the FLAKE PURIFIER multi-sensor sorting system into the new-generation FLAKE PURIFIER+ the wishes of our customers for easier operation and higher material throughput were the decisive factors. In many applications recycled plastics generally can be used as an equivalent replacement for new material based on crude oil, which e.g. allows bottle-to-bottle recycling and makes it possible to turn PET bottles into new PET bottles."
