The primary duties of the supersort®lab are the analysis of the input materials, the process monitoring, the quality management of the products and the support of the further development of the supersort®technology.

Our lab is specialized in the analytics of metals in waste streams such as bottom ash, ASR and other metal-containing waste. Besides the determination of particular parts of non-ferrous metals with the help of selective crushing, magnet-, density- and hand-sorting, we also use the latest XRF-technology. The XRF-technology allows the measurement of the elementary composition of a sample within the one-digit ppmrange which gives us the possibility to detect the content of precious metals. Our experienced and well educated lab technicians work with great accuracy and reliability.

Standard material examinations

Incoming material analytics
Every delivery for the supersort®metal-plant is first checked for radioactivity according to the SUVA regulations. A sample of the delivered material is taken afterwards according to LAGA PN 98 and is checked for material moistness. A retained sample is stored until the complete processing of the order.

Process monitoring
Production samples are taken from our plants supersort®, supersort®fine and supersort®metal on a regular base. With our constant process monitoring, a high product standard is guaranteed.

Quality management of our products
To find the right customer, the quality of all our products is consistently checked.

An overview of our possibilities

  • Sample preparation: From taking a sample to splitting, homogenization, and crushing
  • Particle size distribution through sieve-classification (wet/dry)
  • Determination of material moistness
  • Classification of particular metal contents with the help of selective crushing and hand-sorting
  • Density-sorting with a heavy-solution
  • Crushing with jaw- or drum-breaker
  • Smelting of samples
  • Measuring the elementary composition with XRF-technology

The technics and the possibilities of our lab are consistently improving and will be extended on demand.
