Solid material (can be slightly wet) Has obvious color differences Sizes of about 1 mm ~ 100mm List of materials that can be sorted

Generally Speaking, color sorters with steel material are suitable for almost sorting processing, Stainless steel is expensive but more effective at avoiding corrosion.

With good maintenance, a color sorter can work for 10 years or more.

  • 4:1 configuration means 4 chutes are used for first sorting, and 1 chute is used for the second sorting
  • 3:2 configuration means 3 chutes are used for first sorting, and 2 chutes are used for the second sorting

In normal usage, a color sorter sorts material in two steps: An initial first sorting, then a re-sort of the “rejects” from the first sort.

We do this because the “rejects” from the first sort often contain lots of acceptable material.

This is important because the configuration cannot be changed once it is set in the factory.

  • 4:1 configurations are better for raw material that has few impurities.
  • 3:2 configurations are better for material with a lot of impurities

Please feel free to contact us to ensure you get the correct configuration for your material.

Color Sorter, also called color sorting machine, or optical sorter is a precision sorting machine that separates the materials by their color difference.
