With a recovery rate up to 98% the PaperMagnet separates light 2D materials, such as paper, cardboard and foil from 3D and/or heavy materials, such as containers, bottles and stones.
The PaperMagnet is perfectly suited to recover paper, cardboard and film from a polluted Single Stream or Dual stream flow with a high accuracy.
The principal of separation is based on a belt conveyor which is put under a steep angle and which is creating a vacuum force at the belt surface. Due to the design of this vacuum conveyor, the light 2D materials will be transported to the top discharge side of the conveyor.
3D parts will roll or slide back to the bottom discharge side of the conveyor due to shape and/or weight. Other heavy materials will be discharged at the bottom also due to weight.By adjusting the parameters, conveyor speed and airflow, an optimal adjustment can be achieved for different material inputs and separation qualities for the 2D or 3D fractions. Depending on the size and composition of the material input recovery rates of 85 to 98% can be established.
