These machines separate material according to size. In some cases, the screen aids regulation of the flow of waste. Ar-Val designs and produces several types of screen, according to the type and fraction of waste to be treated.
This screening equipment extracts small recyclable products.
Example of a fines screen
The Ballistic separator uses the physical properties of the incoming flow to separate the material. Its operation rests on the ballistic properties of the waste to be sorted:
- • 3D, hollow objects bounce on the separator paddles and due to gravity, are evacuated via the bottom of the equipment.
- Flat material which does not bounce move towards the top of the screen.
