Introducing the FIBERSORT!

Valvan Baling Systems introduces the FIBERSORT. A new technology that enables the recycling industry to identify and separate textiles based on fiber type.

Fibersort frontal view

Before today, valuable pure fabric was necessarily down cycled during the textile recycling process. Now, the FIBERSORT allows you to automatically sort this pure fabric, based on fiber type into different categories.

The scanning technology we use is NIR Spectroscopy. This is a spectroscopic technique based on molecular absorptions measured in the Near Infrared part of the spectrum. This technique is sensitive to organic constituents and since all textile is organic, there is no limit to the types of fiber that can be recognized.
