ASR Material Recovery | Windshifter/Air Drum Separator


The waste recycling and waste management specialists, MDJ Light Brothers Ltd, facilitate the recycling and recovery of various materials such as plastics, metal, electronic waste, priding themselves on their state-of-the-art waste treatment sites in Sussex, whilst meeting all legislative requirements. Impact Air Systems’ Air Drum Separator (ADS) was the system of choice to process the scrap metal at the ELV site, due to its efficient ability to separate heavy and light material fractions,cleaning the waste stream to enable improved recycling rates, therefore reducing the amount of waste ending in landfill.

Impact’s popular ADS system has been installed all over the world to process a diverse range of materials such as C&D waste, C&I waste, MSW, DMR, WEEE, RDF, SRF and compost achieving extremely high hourly throughput rates, in this case, up to 20 tonnes per hour.

Andy McColl, general manager of MDJ Light Brothers Ltd, is very impressed with the installation and says: “Finding the right system to recover the metal from the waste stream after the ELV’s have been shredded, was a challenge. Our campaign to responsibly recycle as much material as possible throughout our UK waste management sites, meant that we wanted a system that not only recovers the valuable metal, rigid plastics and other recyclable materials, but is also engineered to effectively perform with our high-volume material streams efficiently.

The Impact ADS was definitely the right choice for us and we are extremely pleased with its material separation ability.”
