With the OBM Sorter 1800, you get a sorting machine specialized in removing a wide range of metals and other contaminations out of a material stream; both ferrous and non-ferrous. Several OBM Sorter machines have already proven their high efficiency (up to 97% with metal sorting), and high capacity (up to 5 meters per second!) in a wide range of applications, such as ground wood, ashes, shredded car parts, stones, compost and other materials. Metal sorting works with induction technology, combined with a computer controlled air rail which accurately blows out the contaminations.
The OBM Sorter is available with three different types of scanners:
- Non-ferrous: Wood, slugs
- NIR: Color recognition based sorting
- MSI: Structure and color recognition based sorting
With three scanner types available, all having their unique capabilities, a very wide range of materials can be sorted. The current contamination size is limited at a minimum size of 3 mm and a maximum weight of 3 kg.
