Ballistic Separator

Ballistic Separator

Ballistic separators are designed for sorting and separating 2D material e.g. paper, plastic, film, card from 3D material e.g. plastic bottles, containers, wood. Material is broken down into a rolling, flat and sieved fraction. The lighter 2D material travels upwards in the direction of the paddles whilst the heavier 3D material bounces or rolls back; thus creating a line of 2D and 3D fractions for further processing. Fine particles are screened through the paddles.


Class Leading Ballistic Separator

At Kiverco we integrate class leading ballistic separators into our Materials Recovery Facilities.

One of our technology partner for Ballistic Separators is the German manufacturer Hartner Maschinenbau.
