Watch CIRRUS® FiberMaxTM in Action

Based on the popular CIRRUS® sensor platform, the FiberMax provides increased sorting speeds, sensing capability and operating flexibility. Put simply, the CIRRUS® FiberMax is faster, smarter and better.

The CIRRUS® FiberMax is currently running in both commercial paper recycling operations (recovering mixed paper and sorted office paper), and residential fiber operations (removing prohibitives and outthrows from newspaper and mixed paper). In both applications it is exceeding expectations.
