Quality control of substitute fuels with UniSort online analysis: increasingly, customers are demanding continuousreal-time analysis of the materials being used in the production of substitute fuels (SF) for thermal recovery. Many common sampling methods and subsequent analyses used in practice in today’s laboratories have very high costs. The realtime analysis provided by the UniSortAnalyser offers a solution for continuous, real-time quality control using HSI technology.

The analysis technology uses near-infrared spectroscopy for material identification and compares it to a materials database for the statistical calculation algorithms. Parameters such as the calorific value, PVC content and water content of the SF are calculated in real time based n statistic data and are transmitted to a plant control system as a trend value.

Recording and storage of data:
- Calorific value in MJ/kg
- PVC content in %
- Material composition in %
- Water content in %
- Belt load, plant utilization
- Valve statistics
- Plant downtime
