Ballistic separation

Ballistic separation

Unique engineering solutions that offer versatility

Ballistic separation is a step in the sorting process which usually takes place after the material has been sorted by size and density. Ballistic separators represent versatile engineering solutions for high-quality separation and sorting of materials of various kinds, shapes and sizes. Easily adjustable to rapidly changing waste environment, these machines are perfect to handle future challenges of the industry.

Versatility in types of waste to treat and multiple fraction separation

Ballistic separators are multifunctional machines which allow to treat various types of waste: from paper and lightweight packaging to construction and demolition as well as municipal solid waste. These machines are capable to divide material stream into three fractions – heavier 3D fractions such as tins or stones, lighter 2D or flat fractions such as paper and film and small-sized fractions which are screened down.
