particles from the ground material,
with an effi ciency of up to 99
percent. This is one of the platform's
distinguishing features,
Bartosch Jauernik, group director
product management at Sesotec
told Sustainable Plastics. It also
helps protect against damage to
downstream equipment.
The dedusting system is connected
to the Varisort Compact
sorter through standard vacuum
conveying units, which ensure
smooth material transport. The
conveyor technology and sorting
are centrally connected via a control
unit. The integrated automatic
start and stop function ensures the
highest possible operating convenience,
according to Jauernik.
At the core of the new sorting
platform lies the Varisort Compact
sorter, which divides mixed
material fl ows, for example PET
bottles, electrical waste, scrap
metal and household waste into
uniform fractions. It has three different
sensors: color, metal, and
a near-infrared sensor which detects
different types of polymers.
The Pre-Sort offers maximum
process fl exibility through any
combination of sensors and a
choice of different sorting sequences.
Thanks to two tracks
for automated double sorting,
the sorting platform also ensures
high material quality, with
purities between 85 percent and
95 percent.
" After dedusting, the material
goes through the fi rst line, which
divides it into good and bad material, "
Jauernik said. An electronic
analysis then activates the air
ejection unit with exact timing
and positioning, which removes
the contaminants from the material
fl ow. State-of-the-art signal
evaluation technologies guarantee
high detection accuracy and
an evaluation of up to 500,000
parts per second.
" After the fi rst sorting, the good
material goes through line two, for
resorting, " Jauernik added. The
Pre-Sort system has a throughput
of 600 kg per hour and processes
grain sizes from 2 mm to 10 mm.
The system components sit
on a mobile platform, meaning it
can be moved around and placed
wherever it's needed. " The key
word for the new sorting platform
is fl exibility, " Jauernik explained,
adding that some clients wanted
the fl exibility to move operations
elsewhere after working on a location
for a few months. At almost
6 tons, a forklift is necessary for
transporting the platform around.
It measures 5,700 mm x 2,350 mm
x 3,258 mm and is designed for
rapid commissioning of the plant.
All the necessary parts, such as
material conveying, dedusting,
and sorting, are factory-installed
and thus ready for use in the
shortest possible time.
" Fakuma not only provides us
with unparalleled opportunities
for presenting our innovative
technologies, but also for intensifying
dialogue with customers
and partners, " said Dietmar Dieing,
Sesotec vice president of
sales. " It's a crucial forum which
underscores the relevance of
progress and sustainability in our
industry. For Sesotec, Fakuma is
much more than a trade fair - it's
a stage for the future of the entire
plastics industry. "
Asked about the state of the
plastics recycling industry, at a
time when recycled resin prices
are under severe downward
pressure because of persistent

weak demand, competition from
the falling cost of off-spec virgin
plastics, and cheaper imports
from Asia, Dieing said Sesotec is
yet to feel the heat. The company's
sales have remained stable
throughout 2023, he said, while
noting that comprehensive conclusions
cannot be drawn until
the end of the year.
