Optical separators transport to the blowing valves. The belt must have an adjustable speed from 2.2 - 3.7 m/s, in order to distribute the material along and across the belt and provide enough speed to favour launching and parabolic flight. • Optical sensor: this is a scanner placed on the acceleration belt that detects the materials being transported and which, in addition to determining the position of the materials on the belt band, depending on the wavelength can determine the nature and/or colour of the material. The reading CPU obtained is processed by the unit software. • Illumination system: composed of sets of bulbs that emit light (at a specific wavelength) on the transported material, which is reflected on to the sensor reader. The light intensity (Watts/cm²) is determined by the sensitivity of the scanner. Thus, the greater the sensitivity and efficiency of the scanner, the lower the light intensity needed, reducing consumption. • Valve block: set composed of multiple blowing valves placed after the optical sensor reading strip (scanner), at the end of DESCRIPTION (cont.) 2.
