MSS CIRRUS® FiberMax™ is the next generation of optical fiber sorting technology. Faster, Smarter, and Better than any other automated sorting technology in the industry.

The high-speed conveyor belt of the CIRRUS® FiberMax™ runs at twice the speed of conventional optical sorters, and a proprietary air-assist and material handling system keeps the paper moving through the sensing zone in a laminar flow without turbulence. It sorts paper 40x faster than manual sorting thanks to belt speeds of 1,000 feet per minute.

Every CIRRUS® FiberMax™ is equipped with an intuitive learning algorithm that adapts to changes in the ever evolving material stream. An automated software assistant speeds up the programming of different or new types of contaminants and automates the fine-tuning of the sort recipe, all the while helping it to make distinctions the human eye can’t.

CIRRUS® FiberMax™ generates a higher purity paper grade for better marketability. In one recent installation, the CIRRUS® FiberMax™ decreased the level of prohibitives in a residential mixed paper stream from about 10% to less than 3% consistently. Additionally, it reduced the number of manual sorters by six per shift on the mixed paper QC line.


Sunnyvale, CA MRF – Commingled Line Retrofit


The Sunnyvale Material Recovery and Transfer (SMaRT) Station’s MSW system was installed in 2009. The mixed waste MRF consists of dual infeed municipal solid waste processing lines and a residential, commingled processing line.

This video details the material flow of the commingled portion of the system.

In April 2015, CP Group retrofitted the MRF for increased material recovery and system performance. Today, the system is exceeding expectations.
