Sorting aluminum from heavy metals – TOMRA x-ray sensor technology

TOMRA delivers high-throughput sorting of aluminum from heavy metals by harnessing the power of our in-house developed x-ray sensor technology.
X-TRACT delivers unrivaled performance in aluminum sorting:

TOMRA is a global leader in aluminum recycling and processing with more than 15 years success with major players in 34 countries. Our proven x-ray transmission (XRT) design concept with a top-mounted setup and ideal sensor positioning is built for long-lasting sorting performance.

With ultra-fast detection and data-driven processing, X-TRACT instantly identifies and separates aluminum from even the most complex scrap metal streams. Capable of high-throughput processing of aluminum, aluminum alloys and copper fines, metal recyclers profit from TOMRA’s in-house developed mechanics, sensors and software that maximize yields and purity levels.

Whether your operation recycles aluminum cans, window profiles or end-of-life vehicles, scrap companies and smelters alike benefit from the high purity and high recovery the X-TRACT sorting system delivers.

TOMRA’s x-ray sensor technology takes aluminum sorting to the next level – and the evolution continues – the next generation X-TRACT will be revealed on May 4, 2022.
