Plastic

Solutions to recover, separate and convey plastics in many forms.

Industry Overview

Impact has vast experience in providing plastic resource recovery systems, separating and extracting plastics of varying forms, such as plastic bags and film from the waste stream, to an efficient and effective solution to remove dust, debris and fibres from plastic granules/flakes to provide a more valuable product for recycling.

Zero waste
With increasing pressure to reduce waste going to landfill, it is more important than ever to ensure that recyclable materials are recovered from the waste stream. Our systems ensure that these materials are recovered and are successfully doing so in many recycling facilities around the world every day, saving thousands of tonnes of recyclable materials ending in landfill.

Working together
Impact continues to provide support to the recycling industry with air based technology to enhance the operations of any materials recycling facility or waste sorting centre.

Flexible Solutions
The Impact Film Vacuum System removes plastic bags and films from the waste stream and bales it with our screw compactor system.

Impact’s Plastic Film Airlift solution is an innovative solution designed to work in conjunction with optical sorters to capture Flexible Plastic Packaging (FPP) that has been rejected from the material stream by the optical sorter air injection. Material captured by the system is discharged from the conveying air stream via the rotary separator and deposited into the film bunker below under the action of gravity. (This system is currently being installed in 14 recycling facilities across the US!).

Our Zigzag Separation Systems provide an efficient and effective solution to remove dust, debris and fibres from plastic granules/flakes to provide a more valuable product for recycling. The Impact Pneumatic Conveying System seamlessly transports plastic bottles and containers through your facility via a ductwork system to external storage containers or bunkers.

Our systems will recover plastics such as WEEE, PET, LDPE, HDPE, PP, PS & PVC.

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