The ballistic separator is an aggre- gate used to separate one input material stream into two or three fractions. The big advantage of the ballistic separator in comparison to other separating devices is the combination of the sorting meth- od in weight, dimension, density and form. By means of the single- stage main aggregate the material stream is separated into two main fractions, as there are „rolling heavy fraction“ (stones, wood, tins, massive plastic parts etc.) and „flat light fraction” (foils, textile, paper, cardboard, fibrous products etc.) Depending on the paddle perfo - ration, a third screening fraction according to its grain size is also possible.
The basic principle is based upon rotating paddles being situated parallel to each other. The complete ballistic separator is constructed with the possibil- ity of angle adjustment. Depending on the case of application, the paddle surfaces are closed or de- signed with given perforations and structure of carriers. Due to the adjustment of the angle of in- clination and the sturcture of carriers the separa- tor is adaptable to the input material.
The application possibilities of the separator for heavy materials are very versatile and a quick inte- gration into different huge and small plant config - urations is possible. Due to the varying and simple adjustment possibilities the separator for heavy materials is adaptable to the input material.
