Designed to optimize optical sorter performances
Bollegraaf Aerobooster is designed to optimize optical sorter performances. With certain material streams, the capacity of the optical separator can be greatly increased. Material purity and recovery are also improved what, in certain scenarios, can result in an increase in capacity of 20% and up to 10% for purity.
The overall efficiency of the sorting line is therefore considerably increased, requires less quality control and represents a production boost.
The Aerobooster is characterized by its performance-enhancing effect, especially with lighter materials.
The input material needs to be fed across the whole width of the accelerator belt, which can operate up to 4,6 m/s on our standard conveyors or up to 6,5 m/s on our Opti-sort conveyors. The Aerobooster system creates a laminar air displacement on top of the accelerator belt. The processed materials is accelerated to the belt speed by means of a laminar air flow, which ensures the material is stabilized for optimum detection and sorting by the optical unit.
The Aerobooster is easy to retrofit onto existing lines due to its compact design. Adjusting the air flow is quick and easy thanks to its user-friendly interface.
Other Aerobooster advantages feature:
Increased sorting line efficiency
Allows to increase the line speed up to 4.6 m/sec on standard conveyors.
Less quality control
Perfect optimization of the optical sorting.
Modularity & integration in 1 go
If integrated in our total design Opti-Sort, the speed can be brought up to 6,5 m/sec.
