in category: Recycling Systems

Are you looking to replace your disc screen? Does your disc screen have to be cleaned regularly, slowing down your recycling operation?

The ballistic separator is the most efficient, low maintenance, 3 fraction separator for plastic, glass and paper.

how ballistic sorting works in recycling

Flat, flexible cardboard, plastic film and paper are carried over the top of the paddles to the front of the machine.  Rigid, three dimensional plastic (PET) and metal containers roll down the paddles and exit at the back of the machine.  The third fraction, sorted by the ballistic separator, falls through the sieve mesh of the paddles.  The material moving through the mesh is nominally a minus 2 inch sizing, to ensure minimal loss of recyclables.  Other sieve mesh sizes are available.
