Next-Generation Optical E-Scrap Sorting Technology

The CIRRUS eMax™ is especially designed for electronic scrap/WEEE recyclers. An even higher scanning resolution than usual allows the handling of smaller particle sizes generated by shredders. In-flight detection over an illuminated reference allows the sorting of various opaque, transparent and black commodities such as ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel metals, wires, circuit boards as well as durable plastics such as ABS, HIPS, PC, PMMA.

Best In-Class Optical Sorter

Our proprietary MaxSelect™ sequential scanning technology provides the best combination of scan rate, number of wavelengths and NIR wavelength range (up to 2,500nm). The integrated ClearLight™ technology provides the best signal-to-noise ratio of any optical sorter in the industry because MSS doesn’t use gratings or light beam splitters. A continuous automated internal calibration virtually eliminates the need for manual re-calibration on a regular basis. The sensor housing is under constant positive pressure which eliminates dust accumulation on the inside.
