The Zigzag Air Classification (ZAC 800) waste sorting system is the very latest version of the tried and tested zigzag separation technology, which you will find in operation in many applications in waste recycling facilities around the world.
We pride ourselves on listening to our valued customer feedback and constantly striving to improve our products. The upgrades made to the latest ZAC800 are a result of exactly that. Using our highly skilled in-house engineering team, 3D modelling software and working in conjunction with our carefully selected external supplier base, the ZAC800 boasts impressive resistance to abrasive materials, less moving parts and the very latest fitration technology, whilst maintaining its exceptional separation efficiency.
Using density separation by the power of air, the ZAC800 is specially engineered for processing of glass rich or highly abrasive sub 60mm material streams, the ZAC800 system is constructed from carefully selected materials ensuring exceptional durability. The Zigzag cascade enclosure includes hardened chromium cast plates to greatly reduce wear from glass.
• High quality material stream ouput using state of the art combined technologies
• Minimal downtime due to easy access split access feature
• Long-life wear plates and rubber blades
• Maximised throughput of a variety of material due to Filtersep engineering
• Easy operation with full colour 10” HMI user interface
Impact recognises the industry requirements of ensuring a high-quality waste stream so has enhanced a successful separation solution which greatly improves the separation of valuable recyclable materials while providing the operator with a low maintenance and hassle-free system.
Zigzag material separation technology is used to separate light weight material particles from heavier particles by cascading the mixed in-feed material through an upwards travelling air stream inside a zigzag shaped enclosure.
The design is based on density separation, an upwards travelling air stream takes with it the light weight material particles, allowing separation or grading of feedstock. Heavier material particles are not as affected by the air stream and discharge at the bottom of the zigzag enclosure.
The zigzag air classification technology is ideally suited to low moisture, free flowing, consistently sized material particles up to approximately 60mm in size, where there is a noticeable difference in the product density or weight (i.e. separation of light weight paper, film and plastic from heavier stone, glass or metal).
We understand that customers would like to see the results for themselves, and so we have developed a standalone test facility at our head office in Leicester.
We invite you to make an appointment to bring along a sizeable sample of material to be processed.
Alternatively, arrangements can be made for you to send the sample to us. In return, you will receive a video of your material being processed through our ZAC800 demonstration unit along with a sample of the separated material.
This is a fantastic opportunity to try before you buy.
