Induction Sorting System ISS ®
In certain cases, metallic components, e.g. stainless steel and composite materials, cannot be recovered using magnetic separation and non-ferrous metal sorting processes. The ISS® induction sorting system is the logical solution to this problem.
Previous experience has shown that the rate of both purity and recovery is considerably greater than 90%, depending on the conditions in the plant. Therefore, automatic separation using ISS® sensor technology can more than double the recovery of valuable materials as compared to the manual sorting methods often used today, which at best have a 40% yield.
The ISS® increases throughput three- or fourfold – all factors that have a substantial impact on your company’s bottom line. Precise screening and further crushing improve the results even more.

The main measuring criterion is the electrical conductivity of the material. Small sensors about a thumb’s width in size positioned under a belt or chute emit electromagnetic waves. Electrical conductors traversing through the field change these waves and a computer detects the signal difference for each individual particle, which makes it possible to accurately sort particles with conductor thicknesses as small as 1mm.
