S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH of Schönberg, Bavaria, manufactures machines and systems for the detection/separation of contaminants, for product inspection, and for the sorting of material flows. For over 30 years S+S has been providing the plastics industry with cost-effective, tried and tested solutions. We cover every stage in the process – from manufacturing granulate through to finished products and on to recycling.

S+S is one of the world’s leading suppliers with subsidiaries in Great Britain, China, Singapore, France, and in the USA, a representative office in India, and more than 40 agencies all over the world. Machinery Protection – Increased production security and optimum machine utilisation In plastics processing S+S metal detectors and separators are preliminary employed to protect processing machinery. They help prevent breakdowns and therefore increase productivity and continuity, providing a very fast return on investment. Quality Assurance – Minimum rejected product and maximum added value S+S metal detection and separation systems guarantee the purity of plastics products and play a vital role in the quality assurance process. Less rejected products means less costs and more customer satisfaction.
Products for the plastics industry:S+S metal detectors and separators identify and remove all metals, not only magnetic but stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass and lead.; irrespective of whether they are in pure form, bonded, coated, lacquered, insulated or even embedded in other materials.

S+S offers a complete range of magnet separators for production and recycling. Their primary use is the pre-removal of ferrous metals from bulk materials and packaged product and, with models designed for all types of materials, production stages and conveying systems (free-fall sections, pipelines, belt conveyors etc), they are an effective complement to inductive metal detectors and separators.

Over more than two decades S+S has become the leading manufacturers of contaminant separation and sorting systems. For the recycling industry S+S has developed a range of individual machines and complete solutions to remove contaminants from plastic and PET or to sort mixed material flows into pure fractions. They play a pivotal role in ensuring that highly pure recycled material can be profitably reprocessed back into the production cycle. In the PET industry S+S systems achieve recycling rates approaching 100%.
