How It Works
With the task of hand sorting being so tedious, a good method was needed to speed up the process of sorting. The Ryedale Sorter was developed in 2006 and improvements have been being made steadily since then. The Ryedale sorter uses a device that "compares" the metal content of the moving coin, against the metal content of a sample coin being held in the discriminator device. If the moving coin “looks” or “matches” the electronic signature of the sample coin it is accepted, if it does not, it is simply rejected. Think of the Ryedale Sorter as a miniature high speed metal detector. See the FAQ’s section to learn more about how it works.
