SpydIR®-T

The SpydIR® is an advanced infrared sorting system that separates numerous selected polymers from a mixed stream. It uses proprietary technology and fast, highly-sensitive algorithms to rapidly identify unique polymer “signatures” from their infrared spectra. SpydIR® is the only technology that uses PET Boost™ that improves detection of thin-wall PET, wet PET and full-sleeve labeled PET. While other optical sorters detect material over the belt and eject some time later, NRT offers In-Flight Sorting®, which detects and ejects material in flight. In-Flight Sorting® enables the use of transmissive detection and eliminates motion-related error and belt interference, increasing purity levels and hit rates.

Features

  • Industry leading signal-to-noise ratio is ideal for thin-wall PET
  • In-Flight Sorting® provides unbeatable purity and hit rates
  • Flexibility to change selected polymers
  • High-speed identification with throughput rates exceeding 16,000 lb/hr
  • Low maintenance requirements
  • Remote diagnostics, adjustments and upgrades
  • Width sizes from 24″ to 120″

Applications

  • Sort 1-7 plastics in any combination
  • Single sort high purity clear and light blue PET directly from container stream
  • Remove polymer contaminants from a PET container stream with high accuracy including PVC, PS, PETG, PLA, PC, PE, PP and other polymers in any combination
  • Recover clean PET product from polymer residue streams for return to main PET stream

Technology

  • NIR identification of multiple polymer types
  • In-Flight Sorting® enables use of transmissive detection for robust signal
  • Proprietary infrared sensing technology and algorithms for rapid detection
  • Operator-friendly color touch screen graphic control panel
  • PET Boost™ technology improves detection of thin-wall PET, wet PET and full-sleeve PET
