FUNCTION Material sorting consists of manual sorting of materials on a conveyor belt installed in the cabin. Even if a plant is designed to automatically separate materials, a manual sorting is necessary at the end of the process line to reach 85% effectiveness in overall sorting. DESCRIPTION It consists of manual separation of various materials on the top band of a conveyor belt. In the primary sorting and positive sorting of the materials said belt is horizontal in a sorting cabin, flanked on either side by sorting spaces or positions for the operators and for the mouths of the discharge chutes for selected materials leading to storage containers placed under said selection cabin. In the quality control sorting the belt is normally arranged in the front of a sorting cabin, where the sorting operator is placed at the head of the belt. Manually selected materials are impurities that may be deposited in specific bins or in buckets for subsequent disposal in the corresponding silo. TYPES Depending on the type of material to be selected manually, material sorting can be classified into three different types: • Primary sorting or bulky material sorting: when the materials to be sorted are very large or have an awkward shape and they must be sorting to prevent affecting the subsequent separation process.
