Optical Plastic Sorting Machine / Plastic Colour Sorting Machine

Optical plastic sorting is essential in any plastic processing operation as it helps you to achieve a purer quality of products for recycling plastic sorting.Raw material are fed at a carefully control flow rate to the conveyor belt,where a line of precision cameras scan each individualize pellet.Rejected materials are then removed from the product stream by compressed air jets.This machine features a two-stage(double belts) sorting system,increasing the purity.

What can plastic color sorter machine do ?

In our daily life, plastic products can be found everywhere. Due to the short service life of plastics, the replacement of old and new is fast. As we all know, plastics are extracted from oil, which is a non-renewable resource, and the more it is used, the less it is, so it is necessary to recycle waste plastics. At present, China's waste plastic recycling method is classified - washed - dried - crushed - to form particles. Later, it is sold to plastic factories as recycled materials, which realizes the recycling of plastic resources. Some of them use traditional treatment for landfill, incineration, etc. Landfill not only needs to occupy a large number of sites, if the anti-seepage measures are improper, the produced leachate will enter the surrounding surface water or infiltrate into the soil, causing long-term serious pollution to the environment around the landfill and the health of residents. Waste plastic incineration will produce toxic gases to pollute the air, and the toxic and harmful substances in the bottom ash after incineration still need to be landfilled or further harmlessly treated. Therefore, the sorting and recycling of waste plastics is becoming more and more important .

With the continuous update of modern technology, the screening of waste plastics no longer needs to be carried out manually, and the plastic color sorter has gradually become the savior of the plastic sorting and recycling industry.With its unique advantages, plastic color sorter has become an important part of the waste plastic sorting and recycling line. The purity of the treated waste plastic is higher.The cost of recovery is higher and the profit margin is larger.

Optical Plastic Sorting Machine for plastic flake

Advanced sensor-based sorting technology for optimized results

Plastic flake sorting: Consistently exceptional quality

Your challenge:Achieving high purity highest purity pet flakes intended for the production of new transparent bottles must offer purity higher than 99.99% (<100 ppm). Anything less could prevent the use in bottle-to-bottle applications.


Our answer: Achieve high purity – continuously automatic sort flake analyzes and sorts flakes precisely by color and material, including metal. By combining a field-proven mechanical setup with advanced sensor technology to ensure precise sorting for even the smallest grain size.


The solution: Seamless and flexible

Plastic flakes are screened into grain size fractions of 2 and >2 - 12 mm.

The RC flake detects color (transparency) and material (eg: Pvc, colored pet, pe, pp, ferrous and non-ferrous metals… Etc.) of the fine particles all at the same time, ejecting impurities and undesirable colors.

The result: Pet with extremely high and constant purity (<100 ppm for a global contamination) with very low material loss (<1%), meeting the requirements of bottle-to-bottle & sheet recycling.
