Abstract

Bei einem Verfahren zum spektralbasierten Sortieren transparenter und semitransparenter Schüttgüter (8), wird vorgeschlagen, dass die Schüttgüter (8) in einem Materialstrom zwischen einer Beleuchtungseinheit (2) und einem Sensor (1) hindurchbewegt werden, dass mit der Beleuchtungseinheit (2) eine Beleuchtung mit vorgebbaren Wellenlängen zeitlich oder örtlich diskret durchgeführt wird, dass mit dem Sensor (1) Transmissionssignale aufgenommen werden, dass die Transmissionssignale ausgewertet und die Schüttgüter (8) gemäß der Auswertung sortiert werden. In a method for spektralbasierten Order transparent and semitransparent bulk material (8), it is proposed that the bulk material (8) are moved in a material flow between a lighting unit (2) and a sensor (1) that the lighting unit (2), an illumination is performed temporally or spatially discrete with predetermined wavelengths, that the sensor (1) transmission signals are received that the transmission signals evaluated and the bulk material (8) are sorted according to the evaluation.
