“We are extremely satisfied with the results from Impact’s Zigzag Classification Unit. Having previously tried other technologies, the Impact ZCU exceeded our expectations and we can now supply our WTE plant with a consistent product” - Neil Fryer, Robert Hopkins Environmental Services Ltd.
The compact series Zigzag Classification Unit utilises all the fundamental design features of our bespoke zigzag separation solution, however carefully packaged on a compact skid mounted frame, this pre-assembled, plug and play unit, can be seamlessly and efficiently added to an existing layout or included as part of a system upgrade.
Mixed material fed into the system via a belt conveyor is processed by the zigzag system, splitting the material based on density, size and shape into a stream of heavy and light materials. Heavy material is discharged from the base of the zigzag classification chamber, whilst the lighter material and fine dust particles are transported in the air stream and discharged at the base of the rotary material separator and from the fully integrated reverse jet cartridge style dust filter unit.
Internal surfaces are fully treated with durable materials such as Hardox or Ceramic linings, ensuring long life, even with the most difficult of applications. Fully adjustable air flows ensure maximum separation is guaranteed.
• Reduces landfill tax exposure
• Increase material recovery rate
• Ensure loss on ignition (LOI) levels below 10% are achieved
• Increase the value of the feed material by removal of unwanted contaminants
• Fully adjustable air flows for highly efficient separation
• High material throughput capabilities
• Wide range of material applications
• Fully treated with highly durable internal surfaces for prolonged life
• Minimal on site assembly time
Visit our Material Recovery Test Facility, centrally located in Leicester, with a sample of your material, and see the separation process for yourself. This is proving to be a popular option to try before you buy.
Trommel fines must be cleaned to further remove the calorific material that can be recycled, which will therefore result in the lower tax rate and hugely reduce landfill tax bills for the operator.
Impact’s Zigzag Separation Systems have been successfully providing an efficient density separation solution for waste management companies all over the world for the last five years. With the ability to handle a wide range of materials and with specific adjustments to ensure maximum efficiency, the Zigzag is the obvious choice to minimise tax exposure.
Impact has now further advanced this technology by developing a packaged ‘plug & play’ Zigzag unit with a reduced footprint, improved durability, simple installation and minimal wiring. Within just a few weeks, the launch sparked an unprecedented level of enquiries, as customers recognise the huge potential in cost savings to be made.
