The future of every shredder operator depends on how well a system can effectively deal with constantly changing export markets, customer requirements and new mixes of materials available. The best processor is the one that can create furnace ready scrap that commands the best prices from the widest variety of customers. 

Today there are many options for getting a clean sorted product. But if you need a reliable and profitable system with the flexibility for new sorting scenarios and capability to grow with new business all backed by the experience of the world leader in advanced non-ferrous sorting, then the REDWAVE XRF/C is the ideal system designed for you. 

This technology is able to recover up to 10% more aluminum compared to XRT and increase your revenue. A quicker runtime of up to 25% helps to sort heavy metals into high purity products compared to heavy metals produced with XRT. 

13 years ago, REDWAVE invented the X-Ray Florescence (XRF) based sensor sorters for the recycling industry. In collaboration with leading scrap recyclers, REDWAVE adapted the XRF system for the metal recycling industry to be able to do what no other sensor sorter could. 

With a combination of XRF and camera technology in a compact industrial grade housing and using a free-fall concept rather than a conveyor belt, the sorted metal grades produced can reach purity levels high enough to sell directly to furnaces and refiners. It ́s an industry goal to cover the shredder’s operating costs by the revenue generated from the nonferrous output. But in a competitive market where every dollar counts, a fully sorted Zorba package can be worth up to 60% more than the value of the Zorba alone. The REDWAVE XRF/C has a compact footprint of only 10 square metres allowing integration into almost any existing plant. Moreover, operating only with one machine and a single vibratory feeder, repair and maintenance needs are minimal in comparison to belt type machines or multiple machines. 

The pioneering metal sorting technology will be presented at CARS 2021, we invite you to discover it in more detail on 29-30 September in Coventry UK, REDWAVE experts will be ready to support you to increase the value of your metals.
