Properly sorted: More intelligence to bulk material plants

Properly sorted: More intelligence to bulk material plantsSand, gravel, coal, deicing salt or diamonds, grain, sugar, coffee or grapes and waste – a lot of everyday goods are more or less grainy. To classify this bulk material by quality and size, it must be sorted in a sophisticated process. Scientists have developed a system which is able to sort much faster, more cheaply and more accurately than previous techniques.Sand, gravel, coal, deicing salt or diamonds, grain, sugar, coffee or grapes and waste – a lot of everyday goods are more or less grainy.
