Binder+Co RDF sorting

For decades now, Binder+Co has been a leading company in the processing of secondary raw materials. Owing to the great variety of the feed product, Binder+Co has established a wide product portfolio in RDF sorting. This allows us to perfectly match the sorting machine CLARITY rdf to our customer requirements, from compact : 2-and 3-way systems right to extra-wide sorting machines. Additionally, Binder+Co offers mechanical systems, such as screening machines and perforators for optimum processing results.
Refuse derived fuels (RDF) are able to substitute primary energy carriers in thermal processing by almost a hundred per cent. The relevant parameters are the caloric value, and the chloride, ash and moisture content. The prerequisite for thermal exploitation is the right processing of the RDF.

CLARITY – the innovative sorting system from Binder+Co

The CLARITY is much more than just an optical sorting device; it can help you transform your recyclable materials into hard cash:
Sensor Fusion by Binder+Co – we adapt our sorting systems to the specific tasks of the customer and equip the CLARITY with corresponding sensors. The special situation here is that not only do the fitted-out sensors work in combination with each other, but the sensor data thus produced is combined with specially developed evaluation algorithms.  This allows a simultaneous sorting of the feed material according to type and colour.
With its stable detection quality and latest high-speed sorting valve technology, the CLARITY guarantees high separation grades and good throughput.
Its modular design, easy retrofitting in existing plants and divisibility of the machines lends the CLARITY a precise adjustment to the specific performance required. 
The CLARITY is characterised by a user-friendly MMI software for the operation of the sorting system, easy access for maintenance and function checks, and is thus uncomplicated in its operation.
The CLARITY’s most convincing feature, however, is its economical side: the subsequent process steps are alleviated, production volumes and product qualities increased and, simultaneously, processing costs (process water, energy costs) reduced.
