MPS – Multi Purpose Sorter




MPS – Multi Purpose Sorter

The Eldan MPS optical sorter allows automatic classification and separation of various types of materials, by composition (NIR / MWIR), colour (VIS), Induction sensor (EM) and AI (shape and appearance).

Thanks to the flexibility of the multispectral vision, MPS can be configured to make quick changes in the classification of
new materials to be separated that may arise in the inlet treatment flow.

The MPS models are designed to work on acceleration belts from 1000 mm to 3000 mm with different separation options (Double Bar or MultiTrack) according to the customer’s needs.

NIR Technology – a chemical fingerprint

The Eldan MPS is equipped with Near-Infrared spectrometry for identification of different polymers. NIR technology is the measurement of the wavelength and intensities of the absorption of near infrared light. The absorption or reflectance spectrum is directly proportional to the chemical composition of the polymer. In other words, the MPS takes a chemical fingerprint of polymers using infrared light at a specific point in time.
The NIR technology means fast, accurate, reliable, cost-effective and non-destructive measurements for identification of material and colour. This makes the MPS a great
investment with a guaranteed ROI. .

Electromagnetic sensor/induction

For detection and separation of mixed waste and other metals. The inductor develops a magnetic field when an electric current flows through it. Depending on the composition of the material.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence brings together different technologies, from machine learning to natural language processing, that enable machines to perceive, understand, act and learn. By combining Artificial Intelligence with Machine Vision, we are able to give our systems a decision-making and reaction capacity that is unheard of in the industry.

Eldan Sorting –

Optical sorting for Eldan Recycling Solutions. Powered by PICVISA.


In december 2023 Eldan Recycling and Picvisa announced a Landmark Partnership to revolutionize recycling solutions. Eldan’s Industry Expertise and Picvisa’s Innovative Technology equals a synergistic partnership combining decades of recycling solutions with cutting-edge optical sorting technology.

Picvisa, a part of Calaf Grup, brings to the table 20 years of excellence in the design, manufacture, and supply of optical separation equipment for material sorting and waste recovery mainly in the Glass, Plastic packaging and Textile sectors. Their recent certification as a Bcorp emphasizes their commitment to sustainability and innovation in all aspects of their operations.

The partnership is a strategic response to the evolving needs of the recycling market. It represents a significant leap forward, allowing Eldan to integrate Picvisa’s unique optical sorting technology into its processes.

This collaboration will result in the development of new lines of sorting equipment – the MPS and SPS, tailored for efficient sorting in various applications, particularly in WEEE, NF, and mixed metal scrap systems.
