The Optical Sorting Station (OSS) system brings together the key elements of successful optical sorting, including plant engineering, sorting technology, pneumatic conveyors, pre-conditioners, and auxiliary equipment. Plastics processors no longer need to source separate elements from multiple suppliers, and manage multiple relationships. For flake processing, an optical sorting station features a purifying, refining, sizing, and grading stage that can include one or more Sortex optical sorters. These are linked by all the necessary equipment to convey the product between stages and, if required, to re-introduce it into the system for resorting. Flakes can be fed into one end of the station and collected at the other end – ready for bagging or further processing.
