Our wide range of patented disc inliners ensure an optimal flow with unprecedented speed to the scanner unit. The passive alignment of beverage containers assures high capacity and an uninterrupted counting process.
A customized bulk feeder ensures a gentle transport of all container types to the HLZ system. The bulk feeder is available in different sizes and is particularly suited to feed a large number of containers. The bulk feeder is made of stainless steel as a standard and offers a resistant surface for wet beverage containers
The individually customized scanner unit registers bar codes, Matrix codes and security marks with high accuracy and unbeaten capacity in order to determine whether the containers are redeemable using our own software and flexible optical sorting the precise identification of a wide range of containers is guaranteed
The sorting line provides an optimal transport of all container types. The customized sorting stations ensure that the beverage containers are sorted into the required fractions. Our HLZ system is supplied with up to 32 sorting stations and provides outstanding accuracy when sorting PET bottles, glass bottles, aluminum cans and Tetra Packs up to 1 liter.
Anker Andersen A/S is the leading global supplier of industrial high performance machines (HLZ) for counting and sorting of refillable and non-refillable used beverage containers with deposit (UBCs).
Our highly efficient and reliable HLZ machines are made of 100% stainless steel, and with their modularity, they are sufficiently flexible to meet customer-specific requirements.
The HLZ systems are installed in for example, bottle depots, car park solutions, counting centers, redemption and collection centers, which receive mixed batches of used beverage containers from retailers/ HoReCa/consumers/scavengers. The HLZ systems count and sort the beverages containers into the required fractions, free selectable.
Capacity, accuracy and approvals
The capacity of our HLZ high performance counting and sorting machines ranges from 100–300 containers/minute, and they have a registration accuracy of ≥99.5% and are all CE marked and UL or CSA approved.
Reading of bar codes and material sorting
In the scanner unit of the HLZ machines, high-tech cameras register EAN bar codes, security marks and or QR codes on the beverage containers in order to determine whether they are redeemable. Subsequently, the UBCs are sorted into the required material fractions. At so-called no-read stations, unknown beverage containers are registered manually.
