The ballistic separator is suitable to sort the continuous stream of waste in different fractions depending on shape and weight.A series of parallel paddles applies a strong shaking to the whole waste for an effective separation, conveying the various kind of materials towards different directions.
The ballistic separator performs an effective separation of Municipal solid waste according to different physical characteristics. This separation, known as gravimetric, is one of the main tasks before sending the waste to the manual/automatic sorting phase. The ballistic separator classifies the flow of material into three fractions: heavy and rolling fraction (called 3D), flat and light fraction (called 2D) and the sieved fraction (or underscreen fine fraction). The types of waste that can be screened with the ballistic separator are numerous: lightweight packaging, paper/cardboard, foil and plastic containers, commercial and industrial waste (C&I), municipal solid waste (MSW), waste from construction and demolition (C&D)… Hence, the output flows of a ballistic separator are:
• heavy and rolling fraction, 3D: flacons and plastic bottles (PET and polyethylene HD), cans, wood, stones.
flat and light fraction, 2D: envelopes, trays and plastic film, textiles, paper and cardboard…
• sieved fraction: depending on the size of the holes of the grids on the screening paddles it possible to classify different sizes of underscreen fraction. This fraction, typically not recoverable, has dimensions approximately of 40-50 mm and it contains soil, sand, organic waste and small pieces of recyclables.
Our Company, with the experience of many ballistic separator being installed in INDIA , has over time refined the design and the construction system of the ballistic separator, assembling it with accessories such as blower and automatic variation of the inclination, that allow the municipal solid waste to reach very high separation efficiencies. All the commercial components of the ballistic separator, from the bearings to the gear-motors, are of the highest quality, made by reliable manufacturers with service centers all over the world.
