MSS Releases New Optical Sorting Technology

The optical sorting equipment manufacturer MSS Inc., based in Nashville, Tenn., has introduced the L-VIS high-resolution color camera sorting system for small particle applications such as shredded and granulated materials.

The L-VIS is designed for color-sorting applications such as shredded electronic scrap to extract high-value commodities (printed circuit boards, copper, etc). The company notes that the sort system also provides excellent separation accuracy (up to 98 percent) and is available with a shape identification software algorithm designed for sorting wires. The L-VIS can automatically sort plastic granulates, pellets and flakes by color.

“We developed the L-VIS from the ground up, and we are very excited to demonstrating its capabilities to our customers,” says Greg Thibado, MSS’ GM.

According to a release, the L-VIS’ corresponding high-resolution air jet array provides fast, accurate ejection. An all-metal detector for ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel can be added for further sorting applications. The L-VIS can be configured by the operator via a touch screen interface and is offered in three sizes: 800mm (32 inches), 1,200 mm (48 inches) and 1,600 mm (64 inches).

Felix Hotenstein, MSS’ sales director, says, “The L-VIS allows us to sort smaller and smaller particles, and we are just starting to scratch the surface in regard to all the different applications. We believe the L-VIS will provide a superb performance.”

MSS is a division of the CP Group. The CP Group designs and manufactures material recovery facilities and recycling equipment for single stream recycling, construction and demolition waste, commercial and industrial waste, waste to energy, municipal solid waste, electronic scrap and other material.
