NRT SpydIR®-R

Recovers plastic containers by polymer type, in any combination, through the use of reflected near-infrared light.

The SpydIR®-R is an advanced infrared sorting system that separates selected polymers from a mixed container stream. It uses proprietary technology and fast, highly sensitive algorithms to rapidly identify unique polymer “signatures” from their infrared spectra. The SpydIR®-R uses reflective detection, with the light source and detection array above the material.

Benefits

  • In-Flight Sorting® provides industry leading purity and hit rates
  • Flexibility to change selected polymers
  • High speed identification with throughput rates exceeding 16,000 lb/hr
  • Full array of spectrometers allows for identification across entire belt width
  • Low maintenance requirements
  • Remote diagnostics, adjustments and upgrades
Reflective Detection 
The SpydIR®-R utilizes reflective detection, which occurs when the light source and detection point are both above the material.
  • Detection of opaque polymers such as HDPE and PVC
  • Accurately detects and ejects In Flight
  • Extremely low maintenance cost
