Initially designed to remove PVC from SRF and keep chlorine content low, the Falcon™ has been further improved thanks to the Entsorga experience in the management of waste plants.
The machine consists in few parts with different tasks but closely connected: a conveyor belt, an optical sensor and an air ejection unit. The waste is sent over some vibrating plates, in order to be scattered uniformly over the belt.
WHAT IS A NIR SEPARATOR?
All materials, subjected to a light radiation, reflect a radiation spectrum that is the fingerprint of that specific material. Falcon™ exploits this phenomenon to identify, by means of a hyperspectral camera, the materials travelling on a belt conveyor. According to the information gathered by the camera, a compressed air ejection system, located at the end of the conveyor, blows away the objects of the targeted material.
Falcon™ detection unit is the top technology in NIR spectrography, thanks to a superior spectral resolution: the density of measurement points along the spectrum is several times higher than traditional NIR separators.
This improvement is crucial to obtain a maximum efficiency in material identification.
The machine has been designed with the maximum attention to safety issues. A series of safety interlocks allows the operator to always work in safe conditions, both during normal functioning and during maintenance.
A special attention has been paid to making Falcon™ easy to be integrated: it can be installed in any plant line and can be easily controlled remotely by the plant control system.
