Resumen:
Una universidad checa ha desarrollado un dispositivo que permite la clasificación eficiente de fragmentos de materiales residuales coloreados, por ejemplo, vidrio. En función del color de los fragmentos, las válvulas de aire integradas permiten rechazar y clasificar los componentes en las pilas correspondientes de forma rápida. Aunque la tecnología ha sido probada con éxito en componentes de cristal, también puede clasificar otros productos de color, como arroz o cereales en la industria alimentaria. La universidad busca socios interesados en continuar con la investigación y desarrollo mediante acuerdos de cooperación técnica, así como empresas de la industria de reciclaje para fabricar la tecnología bajo acuerdos de licencia.

Details

Tittle:
Device for sorting fragments of materials by their colour offered for licensing
Summary:
A Czech university has developed a device enabling efficient sorting of fragments of coloured material (e.g. glass) from waste. Based on the colour of the material fragment, the built-in air-valves can quickly blow out and sort the pieces into the right stack. Scientists are looking for partners interested in further research and development based on a technical cooperation agreement and for companies from recycling industry interested in production under a license agreement.
Description:
Detection of various fragments of material or sorting of fragments of coloured material e.g. from waste is a complex technological issue.

A device enabling efficient sorting of small fragments of materials (broken glass or other types of similar materials) has been developed and successfully tested with small pieces of coloured glass by researchers from the Czech university. It is possible to sort various types of fragmented material collected from industry or households.

The device is a high speed autonomous system. After detection of certain fragments (e.g. glass) a corresponding valve is activated. The air blows out the desired piece by using a current of the air impulse. Based on the colour of the fragments of material, the built-in air-valves can quickly blow out and sort the pieces into the right stack.

The device is suitable for companies involved in the field of recycling industry. The size of the device varies depending on the desired throughput of material.

The device has been successfully tested on coloured glass pieces. It is possible to sort other coloured materials, like rice or grain from food industry (detecting whether the rice is white or black). The effectiveness lies in the fact that the device can process material which is going through the device with high speed. It also precisely determines the colour of the piece which is not a trivial task (consider e.g. different illumination). The material can be dirty to certain degree (up to 50%), which has been tested on waste glass fragments.

The researchers is looking for a licensee from manufacturing or recycling industry who would be interested in manufacturing the offered device based on a licensing agreement.

Further development based on a technical cooperation agreement to adapt the technology for sorting other materials than glass (e.g. metals, plastics, grains etc.) is the second cooperation offer.
Advantages and Innovations:
- Small size of sorting material: from 5 mm up to sizes of 5 cm (depends on the demand)
- High speed of sorting process: the speed of the moving material is up to 2,4 m/s
- Variable colour sensitivity (green, brown - these colours have been tested for glass; other colours for different materials can be defined by a user)
- Capacity of the device depends on the size of pieces and size of the device (e.g. 0-8 tons/ hour)
- Compactness (all sorting process is carried out within a device)
-The system is fully autonomous
- In the case of glass, the economic advantage is recycling of used glass using automated device instead of manual sorting
