Glass

Glass recovery solutions to maximise high quality material output.

Industry Overview

Impact Air Systems has been providing separation and recovery solutions to the glass recycling industry for many years. We have listened to and learned from our customers that the glass cleaning and recovery process can be difficult and challenging, so we have responded by creating a recovery system that works seamlessly within recycling facilities, with minimal worker input, but maximum quality material output.

Working with glass industry leaders
Impact’s successful recovery of such a valuable recyclable product is now very well known and admired within the glass recycling sector. Glass processors, recycling plants, Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs) and other waste management companies are all benefiting from Impact’s separation solutions as a vital part of their processing sites around the world.

Landfill tax reductions
Our systems are continually recovering thousands of tonnes of valuable glass cullet from waste streams and saving it from ending in landfill, thus also saving the landfill tax owed by the operator.

Constantly innovating
More recently, Impact has developed and re-engineered the popular Zigzag Separation System to better serve the glass industry resulting in the Zigzag Air Classifier (ZAC), boasting impressive resistance to abrasive materials, less moving parts and the very latest fitration technology, whilst maintaining its exceptional separation efficiency.

We pride ourselves in delivering a bespoke system to work within any facility. Contact our technical sales team to discuss your requirements.

Glass Decontamination for Re-melt and Re-use

The Impact Zigzag Air Classifier uses specialist air technologies to separate the heavy material from the light material to provide the client with a contaminant free product for recycling (remelt).

Dust, fibres and plastic are removed from the material stream leaving only glass which will then be further processed by an optical sorter prior to remelt.
