REDWAVE XRF

for recognition of materials according to their chemical composition

Sorting:
Separation:

The performance of REDWAVE XRF/C technology is excellent, and it was absolutely the right decision to choose REDWAVE for our metal recycling plant. REDWAVE is a very experienced partner! CFO has searched for solutions to separate metals for a few years. REDWAVE convinced us it was the only complete solution for our process, and that was the reason why we choose REDWAVE. With the XRF technology, it is possible to achieve far more and to increase the value of scrap metals in Europe. It was a pleasure to work with REDWAVE’s team; their knowledge and availability were quite important to our project.

REDWAVE XRF/C

for metal sorting

REDWAVE XRF

for glass sorting

REDWAVE XRF/C

For metal sorting

  • One machine is all you need – for any application
  • Sorting of all kinds of non-ferrous metals such as ZORBA, TWITCH, ZURIK, IBA and heavy metals
  • Highest efficiency and purity due to innovative free-fall design, combination of XRF and camera and the state-of-the-art software algorithm
     
  • FUTURE-PROOF:
    - Versatile and flexible
    - Quick reaction to market change
    - ROI usually in less than 1-2 years
     
  • Highest efficiency and purity due to
    - Innovative free-fall design
    - Combination of XRF and camera
    - Most state-of-the-art software algorithm

Benefits

EASY TO INTEGRATE
  • Small footprint of only 11m² allows for easy integration
  • Same chassis size for each sorting width
RELIABILITY
  • Pioneer and leader in XRF based sorting machines with +12 years of experience
  • More than 100 XRF-machines in operation worldwide
  • Expert in sorting non-ferrous metals

REDWAVE XRF-G

For glass sorting

  • Separation of glass ceramic and lead-containing glass in one process step
  • Sorting efficiency is not impaired by the color of the broken glass, dirt, moisture, labels high throughput
  • Accurate detection of the elements thus no misinterpretations as with other technologies (e.g. fluorescence effect caused by other non-Pb-containing UV detection of Pb-glass)
     
  • FUTURE-PROOF
    - Easily adjustable for future heavy metals in glass
     
  • MINIMAL GLASS LOSS
    - Ordinary glass is not detected
    - Therefore no false detections

Benefits

EASY TO INTEGRATE
  • Only one machine for lead glass and glass ceramics
  • Either as first or last sorting stage
RELIABILITY
  • Consistent high removal of lead glass and glass ceramic
  • Pioneer and leader in XRF-based sorting machines with +12 years of experience
