MSS CIRRUS® FiberMax™: the next generation of optical fiber sorting technology. Faster, Smarter, and Better than any other automated sorting technology in the industry.
Belt speeds up to 1,000 feet/minute sort paper 40x faster than manual QC.
Intuitive learning software adapts to changes in the material stream.
Higher purity of newspaper and mixed paper for better marketability.
Currently running in both commercial paper recycling operations (recovering mixed paper and sorted office paper), and residential fiber operations (removing prohibitives and outthrows from newspaper and mixed paper). In both applications it is exceeding expectations.
Based on the popular CIRRUS® sensor platform, FiberMax™ provides increased sorting speeds, sensing capability and operating flexibility.
The high-speed conveyor belt of the CIRRUS® FiberMax™ runs at twice the speed of conventional optical sorters, and a proprietary air-assist and material handling system keeps the paper moving through the sensing zone in a laminar flow without turbulence. It sorts paper 40x faster than manual sorting thanks to belt speeds of 1,000 feet per minute.
Every CIRRUS® FiberMax™ is equipped with an intuitive learning algorithm that adapts to changes in the ever evolving material stream. An automated software assistant speeds up the programming of different or new types of contaminants and automates the fine-tuning of the sort recipe, all the while helping it to make distinctions the human eye can't.
CIRRUS® FiberMax™ generates a higher purity paper grade for better marketability. In one recent installation, the CIRRUS® FiberMax™ decreased the level of prohibitives in a residential mixed paper stream from about 10% to less than 3% consistently. Additionally, it reduced the number of manual sorters by six per shift on the mixed paper QC line.
A variety of upgrades is included in every CIRRUS® FiberMax™. An integrated vacuum suction system to remove ultra-light flexible packaging such as film and bags during the ejection process right inside the eject hood is an option. It can also be built to custom width, up to 112"/2800mm wide.
