  • Publication number: 20220008959
    Abstract: An optical sorter includes optical sorting units adapted to sort materials by quality. A first optical sorting unit sorts the materials by quality and transfers a fraction of the materials discharged from a defectives discharge unit in the first optical sorting unit to a second optical sorting unit. A second optical sorting unit sorts the materials by quality and transfers a fraction of the materials discharged from a defectives discharge unit in the second optical sorting unit to a third optical sorting unit, which sorts the materials transferred from the second optical sorting unit by quality. The optical sorter allows a fraction of the materials to be transferred to the third optical sorting unit and sorted therein, the materials to be sorted being among the materials sorted by quality in the first optical sorting unit and being discharged from the defectives discharge unit of the first optical sorting unit.
