The quality improvement of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) material streams is an important part of improving energy efficiency, meeting environmental standards and following regulations –such as EU directive (2010/75/EU) on incineration and combustion of refuse materials.
Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) offers a solution that can analyse the quality of RDF streams, of varied complex composition, to extract relevant parameters, such as the calorific content, to optimise combustion processes. This is achieved by combining an HSI camera with relevant classifying and sorting technology provided by EVK.
Through many years’ experience in embedded vision systems, EVK has refined and evolved the technology to the point that it can offer all-in-one solutions for process control and optimization. In-house developed cameras, classification engines and sorting engines fit seamlessly together, with software, to deliver high performance – this is further guaranteed through access to EVK’s vast experience in quantitative and qualitative analysis of bulk material streams.
SQALAR Software enables the HELIOS Classification System to be parametrized to do real-time classification decisions. This ability delivers real improvements to process optimizations and it contributes to a good return-on-investment.
