Z-box air separation[widgetkit id=2088]
This Z-box air separator uses a dry separation technique. With the aid of a constant upward flow of air the lighter and heavier material portions are separated from each other. This air separator is an additional installation in the shredder line. This machine can be placed before or after the magnetic separation installation, depending on the processed material. The lighter parts are separated from the airflow with the aid of a filtration system. The heavier materials fall down to the bottom of the Z-box. This makes it possible, for example, to separate solid pieces of plastic from plastic film. This dry air technology offers a solution when flat, light particles need to be separated from round, heavier ones.
