Nashville, TN (September 5, 2017) – MSS, Inc., the optical sorter division of CP Group, introduces MetalMiner™, the next generation of induction-based true all-metal detectors. MSS has designed and built induction metal sorters for over 40 years, and this latest iteration was designed specifically to handle auto shredder residue (ASR), electronic scrap, plastic flake and glass cullet applications. One of the most relevant new technical features of the MetalMiner™ is the patent pending MapLine™ algorithm.
“MapLine™ allows users to target specific metal types or objects by amplifying the sensitivity for non-ferrous metals, especially wire, while simultaneously reducing it for ferrous dust,” says Felix Hottenstein, MSS Sales Director. “MetalMiner™ is exceeding our customers’ expectations. We’ve found up to 15% higher recovery rates for Zurik when directly compared to other vendors.
Hottenstein continues, “Additionally, MetalMiner™ reduces cross contamination with ferrous-dust-covered wood, plastics, and foam. This creates a noticeably cleaner product.”
Greg Thibado, MSS Vice President, says, “In addition to the technological advances, we’ve implemented new manufacturing techniques that allow for MetalMiner™ to become even more competitive, especially for the wider units.”
The MetalMiner™ is manufactured up 112″/2800mm wide as either a stand-alone model in a conveyor configuration or it can be integrated as an upgrade to the MSS CIRRUS NIR and L-VIS Color optical sorters. Depending on the application, different induction coil configurations and spacings are available.
For certain small particle applications such as plastic flake or glass cullet, MSS also offers the MetalMiner™ in a slide configuration which provides an even higher sensitivity and sorts ferrous, non-ferrous, and stainless steel down to 1mm in size.
