Try Before You Buy…

Impact Air Systems’ separation solutions have been impressing MRF owners and alike all over the world for the last few years, and we are pleased to offer our test facility to allow you to try them for yourselves.

Solution Overview

Using a cyclonic air stream, the innovative systems remove unwanted lightweight fibres, dust and fine debris from glass cullet, plastic flake and various shredded material, leaving you with a better quality and more valuable product.

This is a fantastic opportunity to try before you buy.

Our density separation systems assist the operator in reducing landfill tax costs. 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 live footage of your material being processed through our Air Drum Separator (ADS) or Zigzag Air Classifier (ZAC) demonstration unit along with a sample of the separated material.

The most recent installations of the Zigzag Separation System include trommel fines separation, removing paper, label, wood and dust from shredded and granulated rigid plastic, removing paper and dust from plasterboard nuggets and systems within various glass processing plants and Air Drum Separator (ADS) installations include successful separation of C&D/C&I, ASR, Compost, Wood & MSW.

It’s clear to see the valuable results that our separation systems provide.
