Mineral and Sensor-Based Sorting Technology

mineral technology

As a leading contractor specialising in mineral and sorting technology, BT-Wolfgang Binder is an innovative partner for turnkey projects, modification and extensions to existing plants. With its trademark REDWAVE company, BT-Wolfgang Binder offers a flexible, sensor-based sorting system which is equipped with the latest sensor technology.

REDWAVE mineral sorting machine

The REDWAVE mineral sorter recognises the target material on the basis of typical characteristics such as colour, transparency, atomic density (elemental composition) and conductivity.

It has been developed for the sorting and handling of different minerals to improve the quality, identification and sorting of various minerals, ores and gemstones such as limestone, quartz, talc, gold, nickel, willemite, magnesite, emeralds and diamonds, to name a few. Advantages of using the REDWAVE sensor-based sorting solutions include:

  • Single or double side scanning
  • Up to 2,000mm working width by CCD technology
  • Identification and sorting of different materials according to colour, brightness and transparency
  • Identification and sorting according to element composition
  • High efficiency
  • High throughput with maximum recovery of materials
  • High recovery rates and availability
  • Fast payback period
  • Economic sorting technology
  • Dry and wet sorting technology
  • Multi-sensor unit to sort minerals in same colours

New - unique advanced separation technology

The combination of the newly-developed X-ray fluorescence technique with a high-resolution RGB camera offers unique opportunities worldwide for recognition at the REDWAVE sorting machine. By combining the two techniques, it is possible for both the objects and their color and the elemental composition to be used as sorting decision.

Mineral sorting test centre

All of our customers have the opportunity to test their own product with different REDWAVE mineral sorting machines at our test centre. With REDWAVE advanced sorting units we guarantee highest grades in your end products.

Mining and sand processing plants

The precise processing of raw materials by means of controlled crushing, drying/cooling, screening, sieving and sorting is a precondition for a high-quality product. Crushing experiments which guarantee processing that is optimally adapted to rock characteristics are carried out in collaboration with our innovative partners. We are experts in:

  • Drying / cooling
  • Crushing
  • Screening and sieving
  • Conveying
  • Control systems
  • Sorting
  • Sensor-based sorting (REDWAVE)

Conveyor technology for bulk materials

BT-Wolfgang Binder carries out the complete design work, delivery and assembly of crushing, screening, mixing and batching processes as well as the realisation of rail car discharge stations, landfill sites, reloading points and terminals for trucks and rail cars. We provide conveying systems within the mining industry, non-metallic minerals industry, metallurgical industry and also power section. Our processes include:

  • Belt conveyors
  • Curved belts
  • Apron conveyors
  • Belt feeders
  • Belt bucket elevators
  • Chain bucket elevators
  • Vertical lift conveyors
  • Chute conveyors

Mixing and dosing plants

The production of dry construction materials such as mortar, cement, fillers and plaster requires a detailed knowledge of the areas of dosing, weighing, mixing, packing, storing and controlling. BT-Wolfgang Binder plans, supplies and assembles mixing plants customised to customer needs and within the specified time, ranging from materials handling and stockpiling, precise batching and weighing systems to packaging plants. Our services include:

  • Drying
  • Screening
  • Dosing
  • Weighing
  • Mixing
  • Packing
  • Storing
  • Control system
