Zigzag Density Separation

The zigzag separation system can be installed at a conveyor junction and is typically applied to clean the unwanted contaminants and debris from the 0-100mm material stream. The contaminated material discharges the feed conveyor into a zigzag cascade enclosure where the material falls through an upwards travelling air stream and density separation occurs.

Airknife Waste Separation

The Airknife’s main function is to remove low value fractions from the material stream. Typically installed at a conveyor junction, the Airknife consists of an input air volume channelled through an adjustable nozzle, working in conjunction with an extraction hood, all mounted inside a single enclosure.

Air Drum Separator (ADS)

The ADS is a specially adapted air knife separator unit working in conjunction with a rotating drum and is designed to separate a wide variety of materials based on density, shape and aerodynamic properties. Used for separating a mixed stream of material into heavy and light components.

Zigzag Air Classifier

Impact recognises the industry requirements of ensuring a high-quality waste stream, so has further engineered 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.

Cyclone - Dust Control

Impact offers a range of medium and high efficiency cyclones that are ideal for material pre-separation applications where small or fine material particles need to be removed from the conveying air stream prior to fine dust filtration.

Dust Control Systems

Impact Air Systems offer a wide range of dust control solutions to meet the vast range of applications faced in modern day production environments.

Tubular Reverse Jet Filter

Dust is efficiently removed from the conveying air using anti-static polyester needle felt tubular bags. An electronic sequence controller initiates a pulse of compressed air which momentarily reverses the flow of air through the filter bag to release the dust into the discharge hopper below.

Pneumatic Transfer Lines

The pneumatic transfer system is utilised in many recycling operations allowing pre-separated dry materials such as plastic containers, aluminium and steel tins and beverage cans to be conveyed through a range of ductwork directly to storage bunkers or balers using the most direct route, eliminating the need to utilise conventional belt conveyors, which can often take up valuable floor space.

Film Vacuum System

The system consists of a series of specially designed material collection hoods which are typically mounted in the ceiling of the sorting cabin above the waste belts. The operator simply offers the film or plastic to the hood and it then automatically sucked away.

Industrial Ventilation Systems

Impact offer industrial ventilation to a wide range of industries including paper mills, packaging production, print production, EFW sites, materials recycling facilities and many more.
