Binder+Co AG

Binder+Co is a unique enterprise in the world of processing. After all, we offer six elementary processing steps from one single source: comminuting – screening – wet processing – thermal processing – sorting – packaging and palletizing. For many decades now, Binder+Co has supplied individual systems and overall processing plants to the mining and recycling industries. In doing so, we have always placed great value on novel ideas.

Sensor-based sorting for paper

Waste paper is an extremely sought-after secondary raw material worldwide. The re-use of waste paper means drastic savings in energy and resources, such as wood or water.
The purer the waste paper fraction, the more specifically it can be refed into the paper production as a raw material. One of the decisive quality criteria for waste paper is whether it is composed of bleached (mostly paper) or unbleached and totally dyed through (mostly cardboard) fibres.

The modular CLARITY sorting system is the result of the many decades of experience that Binder+Co has gained in mechanical and optical processing of waste paper. CLARITY paper guarantees optimum conditions for the continuous manufacture of high-quality paper.

The unsorted crude material is fed into the machine and illuminated with light sources. Different sensors such as colour or near infrared cameras recognise the material type and colour. The valves mounted on the blow-off strip are actuated at just the right time, and the foreign material and defined colours are blown off into the corresponding sorting paths.
